News from the Captain

The county has experienced an increase in auto thefts with the keys left in the vehicle. These cases involve keys being left in the center console or other locations in the vehicle and, in some cases, involve valet keys being left in the glove box. Please lock your car doors and do not leave keys in the vehicle. This is a very preventable crime.

Car manufacturers have made great progress with key technologies that prevent vehicle theft without the keys. Please take advantage of that and remove your key from the vehicle. Remember to practice crime prevention measures as you go about your daily activities and make a conscious effort to remove the opportunity of crime.


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 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.

  3. Officer of the Month

    The Precinct 7 Officer of the Month is awarded as follows:

    June: Officer A. Doorandish

    Officer Doorandish worked hard during the month of June to keep drivers safe from traffic law violators. He led his squad in total enforcement of traffic law violations, accounting for almost half of the entire squad's total enforcement. He also conducted 66 random business checks, thwarting off potential burglars and law breakers.

    July: Officer J. Cramer

    Officer Cramer did nearly double the work of his cohorts in July, including arrests of two adults for a Grand Theft Shoplifting at Target totaling nearly $4000 worth of merchandise. He also arrested two adults and two juveniles for a 4th Degree Burglary at Ridgely Middle School. His supervisors describe him as a dependable officer, routinely backing other officers on their calls, who always maintains a positive attitude, volunteering for even the least desirable details.

    August: Officer J. Schiner

    Officer Schiner is described as a motivated and proactive officer, committed to the safety of the community he serves. He handles all calls for service with a positive and professional attitude. He is also a thorough investigator, putting as much effort as he can into every call he handles. In August he cleared more cases through arrests of suspects than any other officer on his squad, accounting for almost half of the total number of arrests made. He is also dedicated to the safety of the drivers in our community, volunteering to attend additional training on the detection of impaired drivers. Soon after attending this training he observed a vehicle attempt to drive through a crash scene he was assisting with, and conducted a traffic stop on the driver. He utilized his newly learned skills to determine that the driver was impaired by alcohol and made the arrest, potentially saving an innocent person's life.

    Congratulations to our recipients of the Officer of the Month award on a job well done and an award well deserved!
