Privacy Policy  

The Baltimore Police keeps your personal information private and secure. When you submit information that includes personal data to the Police Department through this web site, we retain your information for follow-up purposes only. This process is identical to the system employed when you report a crime or other problem to your respective patrol district or to a police officer. As a consequence, your name will not be disclosed outside this department except as required and permitted by law.

If the information you submitted was done anonymously, we will make no attempt to obtain your identity except in circumstances where it may be pivotal to prevent the loss of life or property.

Information that might identify you does not accompany your anonymous online information submissions unless you provide it. However, some of the online report and submission forms require a name and phone number. In such cases the information must be submitted before the form will be processed.

Other sites accessible through our web site have their own privacy policies and data collection practices. Please consult each site's privacy policy. The City of Baltimore and the Baltimore Police Department are not responsible for the actions of third parties.

The Baltimore Police Department fully cooperates with state and federal law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities. We reserve the right to report to other law enforcement agencies any activities that we reasonably believe to be unlawful and to take appropriate action against violators of law.

If you feel that this site is not following its stated privacy policy, please contact us, or write us at the following mailing address:
