News from the Captain

Help prevent vehicle theft and residential burglaries in your neighborhood by taking basic steps to make life difficult for criminals. Lock your doors and windows at night, and always make sure that your vehicle is locked and that all keys have been removed before you walk away.

Many homes are burglarized and vehicles are stolen because opportunistic thieves locate unlocked doors, obtain car keys or discover an unattended running vehicle. Please lock your car doors, use an anti-theft device and secure your home. Let’s make it difficult for opportunistic thieves.

Remember, if you see something suspicious in your community — say something. Report any suspicious persons, vehicles or conditions to police immediately.

Resources

Are you going out of town? Don't leave your home looking unoccupied. Complete a Vacant House Form and email it to the precinct at pdpc06patrolfax@baltimorecountymd.gov. Officers will then check on your location for any unusual activity while you are away.

If something suspicious does happen at your home, law enforcement will be able to quickly reach you or a local emergency contact from the information provided on the form.
