News from the Captain

I am thankful for the outpouring of support we enjoy every day from the citizens of the Essex Precinct. By partnering and working together, we will make Essex a safe and enjoyable place to live and do business. The Baltimore County Police Department needs your help to combat crime. There are simple steps you can take to avoid being a victim of the most common crimes.

  • Please lock and secure your vehicle doors and remove any valuables. Thieves routinely target neighborhoods and busy shopping areas to check and pull on door handles. Any unlocked or unsecured vehicle makes a criminal’s job easy and is a sure way to become a victim, potentially losing valuable or precious items. Very rarely will a thief break glass to commit their crime.
  • Do not leave a spare key in your vehicle. Oftentimes a thief will find this and steal your car. In the majority of car thefts, the key is used.
  • During cold weather, many people leave their vehicle running and unattended in their driveway or while stopping at a convenience store. Not only is this an invitation for a car thief to take your car, but it is also a crime.
  • Please do not leave packages on your porch. If you plan to be away when a delivery is expected, consider having it delivered to a neighbor’s house or picking it up from the carrier's office.

Additional crime prevention tips are available online. Remember, if you see something suspicious, please call 9-1-1. Never be afraid to report something that you feel is suspicious. You can also report suspicious activity on our iWatch tip form.

I invite everyone to come to the monthly Police and Community Relations Council (PCRC) meeting. We meet on the second Monday of each month at 7 p.m. at our Stemmers Run community substation located at 99 Stemmers Run Road, 21221.


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.

About the Precinct Commander

Captain Christopher George began his career with the Baltimore County Police Department in 1995. As a patrol officer, he was assigned to the Wilkens Precinct, White Marsh Precinct, and Western Traffic Unit. Upon being promoted to corporal, he worked patrol assignments in the Essex and White Marsh precincts. After being promoted to sergeant, he worked patrol assignments in the Towson and White Marsh precincts. When promoted to lieutenant, he was a shift commander in the Essex and White Marsh precincts.

Captain George was an officer and supervisor on the Department’s Critical Incident Support Team (CIST) for many years where he responded to traumatic incidents throughout the county.
