Citizens On Patrol

Lake Walker and Evesham Park residents joined together, with support from the Northern District of the Baltimore Police force, to create a Citizens on Patrol program. Participants wear orange vests (patrolling pooches wear orange bandanas). We hold quarterly walk events.

On a day-to-day basis, residents are encouraged to keep eyes and ears open when walking through the neighborhood in order to report any suspicious behavior. Here are some guidelines:

Safety tips from our Community Relations Officers:

Crime Watch number

A Crime Watch number, also known as a “Block Watch” number, is a unique, seven-digit number issued to you by the Baltimore Police Department. It allows you to anonymous report suspicious activity. If you use the number when you call 911, the operator will not ask for your name, address, etc. and the responding officers will not contact you to follow-up.

A Crime Watch number can also be used when reporting non-criminal, non-urgent issues to 311.

You can obtain a Crimewatch number, and more information about the program, on this website: http://www.baltimorecity.gov/Residents/HealthSafety/4StepsToFightingCrime/ReportingCrime/CrimeWatchNumberApplication.aspx
