Baltimore, MD - Aug. 10, 2022 - Recently the Baltimore City Police Department explored changing the Police Districts to properly allocate resources and crime fighting strategies. Unfortunately the initial proposal created a fractured community map that if implemented could create confusion as to which District covers an area. Especially considering some of our neighborhoods already have problems when calling 911 for the dispatcher to determine if it is a City or County call. The map as presented would have added another area for confusion.

Thankfully this issue was championed by Baltimore Shomrim and brought to the attention of local elected officials.

Thank you to Mayor Brandon Scott, Councilman Yitzy Schliefer, and the Baltimore City Police Department for taking action to keep Cheswolde-Cross Country and Mount Washington in one contiguous Northwest Police District!

Public safety remains our community’s primary concern.
