Maryland County Begins Online Crime Reporting

TOWSON, Md. (AP) — Baltimore County officials say they are now allowing citizens to report minor crimes online.

The county plans to demonstrate the new system Monday at the North Point Police Precinct in Dundalk. County Executive Kevin Kamenetz, Police Chief Jim Johnson and information technology director Rob Stradling are scheduled to attend.

County officials say the online reporting tool is available for crimes including hit-and-run accidents that don’t involve an injury, abandoned motor vehicles, property destruction and theft. Police plan to evaluate whether other categories might also be appropriate for online reporting.
