Current Crime Trends

The Baltimore County Police Department provides regular reports to the public about current crime trends.

This is preliminary information developed by detectives based on geographical location, similarities between crimes and suspect descriptions. Identification of a crime trend does not mean that the crimes necessarily are related or have been committed by the same suspect.

For more detailed information, contact your local precinct. If you live in an area where a crime trend has been identified and are concerned about safety and precautions, see our crime prevention section.
