Message From Precinct Commander
New technology continues to assist the Baltimore County Police Department in solving crimes that occur within our jurisdiction. Coupled with aggressive prosecution, it is Chief Johnson’s directive that technology be a cornerstone of our crime fighting efforts.
Social media is and will continue to be a valuable tool used by the department to communicate with the citizens we serve. The information that is provided by the department through social media is verified and supported by facts.
Many community associations within the Essex Precinct area are also using social media tools to communicate with each other and I applaud the efforts of the greater Essex Middle River area for getting involved. As the Precinct Commander, it is important to me that when citizens are using social media to communicate to the community, that they use it in a responsible manner and ensure the information that is being passed on is in fact accurate. Unfortunately, erroneous information has a detrimental effect because it creates unsubstantiated rumors.
There are several places that citizens can go to for official information from the Baltimore County Police Department.

- Essex Precinct Front Desk: 410-887-0220 *Ask to speak to a supervisor.
