How do I report a crime or suspicious behavior?  

IMPORTANT: In case of emergency, call 911 to report crime.

By reporting crimes that occur in your community you can help the police and the judicial system combat crime. It is critical that the police have as much information as possible about the crimes that are committed in our city – by reporting the details of crimes that you witness to 911 (crimes in progress) or 311, you help generate vital information that can be utilized to solve the crime you reported, solve crimes that may be related, conduct investigations, and build cases against criminals.

Metro Crime Stoppers

Metro Crime Stoppers (MCS) gives Baltimore residents the ability to anonymously report crime tips to the Police. Knowing that anonymity eliminates intimidation, citizens can call 410-276-8888 to report crime and potentially earn a monetary reward. MCS is a volunteer organization actively supporting law enforcement agencies in solving crime in our community.

If you wish to anonymously report a crime tip, call Metro Crime Stoppers at 410-276-8888.

Operation Crime Watch

Operation Crime Watch is designed to prevent and reduce crime in Baltimore by creating and supporting neighborhood-based block watch and citizen patrol programs through a partnership between the citizens of Baltimore, the Mayor’s Office on Criminal Justice, the Baltimore City Police Department and the Washington/Baltimore High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA).
