News from the Captain

Everyone is invited to attend the monthly Police Community Relations Council (PCRC) meeting held the fourth Tuesday of the month, at the Christus Victor Lutheran Church located at 9833 Harford Road, 21234.

Many criminals count on not being seen or not being reported to police by people who do see them. Make your neighborhood an uncomfortable place for any criminal to be; report any suspicious persons, vehicles or conditions to police immediately.

Always strive to do the right thing and the right thing will happen.


Vacant House Form

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.

Business Night Card

Every day and night officers respond to calls for service to businesses that are currently closed. Many times these officers need to contact a representative of the business for additional information related to these calls for service. The precincts maintain a list of all businesses in the area and their 24-hour contact information. Complete or update your Night Card contact information. This information is beneficial to the safety and security of your business.

Report Traffic Problems

Report a traffic problem in your neighborhood using the Traffic Problem Reporting form. This form should not be used for an emergency. Call 911 for emergency situations requiring immediate action.
