The topic in the second segment is the department's Community and School Resources Section. Captain Andre Davis discusses the many functions of this unit that reach out to the citizens of Baltimore County. Captain Davis provides details about the duties of the department's School Resource Officers (SRO) and Auxiliary Officers, as well as services provided by the department's Counseling Team, Juvenile Offenders In Need of Supervision (JOINS), and the annual Citizens' Academy and Youth Leadership Academy.

The program airs five days a week on Cable Channel 25, only in Baltimore County. The times are:

Police Report is available online, if you would like to watch it on your own computer, on your own schedule.

Cold weather is here, no doubt about that. Just dressing to go outside in the morning to warm the car seems to take forever. It would be so easy just to start up the car, run back into that warm, cozy house and have a little more coffee. Not a good idea. In the amount of time it takes to walk into your home someone can steal your vehicle.

Car thieves wait and watch for people to walk away and then strike. They are not only in your neighborhood, but at convenience stores waiting for you to run in to get a quick cup of coffee. You may think that locking your keys in the car will dissuade these criminals but it doesn't. They can pick a lock often times faster than you can open it with your key. Baltimore County Police Sergeant Robert Jagoe, a member of the Regional Auto Theft Team (RATT), says in one study more than 25 percent of the vehicles stolen in the area were due to keys left in the ignition.

There are many reasons not to leave your car unattended; walking in the cold is not fun, making car payments on a car that is no longer available to you, insurance that probably will not pay for your mistake, and lastly you could get a ticket if a Baltimore County Police Officer sees that you have stepped away from your vehicle.

So if you don't want to be left out in the cold, ice, freezing rain or snow, don't leave the car unattended.
