We understand that many residents are apprehensive about reporting crime, and wish to remain anonymous when reporting crime in order to protect their own safety. To remain anonymous when calling 911, you can always simply state that you wish to remain anonymous.
Baltimore's Crime Watch numbers are available to residents seeking additional assurance and confidence that they will remain anonymous when reporting crime.
What is a Crime Watch Number?
Baltimore City's personal Crime Watch number is a confidential, unique, seven digit number issued to you by the police department. It allows you to anonymously report crimes in progress and suspicious activity. If you use the number when you call 911, the operator will not ask for your information and the responding officers will not contact you to follow up.
How it works:
When you give your Crime Watch number to the 911 Operator, the Operator will ask you several questions, including the location of the incident about which you are calling. The 911 Operator will tell the police about the location of the incident, but WILL NOT tell the police any information about the person calling 911.
The police officer will respond to the location of the incident, not to the caller. Even if the incident is right in front of your house, the responding officer will not know if the call came from your house, one of your neighbors or someone passing by.
The LRIA encourages ALL residents to get involved in the Crime Watch program.

CARBON MONOXIDE SAFETY
Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that is produced from fuel burning appliances in and around the home, an oil furnace, a natural gas water heater and even a lawn mower. Install a carbon monoxide detector on every level of the house.
ELECTRICAL FIRE SAFETY
Electrical fires claim the lives of 280 Americans each year. Most of these fires are caused by incorrectly installed electrical wiring and overloaded circuits and extension cords. Fire deaths are highest in winter months which call for more indoor activities and increases in lighting, heating, and appliance use.
Placing things that can burn too close to heating equipment or placing heating equipment too close to things that can burn, such as upholstered furniture, clothing, mattress, or bedding, was the leading factor contributing to ignition in fatal home heating fires. Take extra precautions and never leave unattended.
To make sure your next barbecue does not go up in flames, follow these safety tips:
Smoke alarms save lives! Residents can request free smoke alarms for your home and the fire department will install them for you. Call 311.
