Dennis M. Robinson, Jr., president of the , is urging residents to report suspicous activity to police after a string of at Perry Hall businesses.
He released the following statement to Patch:
It is undoubtedly disturbing to hear about robberies in local shopping centers. Zero would, of course, be an ideal number for crime rates in this area, but we all know that is unrealistic. I also understand that one crime is too many if you are a victim.
Despite a recent string of robberies of local businesses, I want to emphasize that Perry Hall is among the safest communities in Baltimore County. Although the officers who patrol this area do an excellent job protecting our community, there are ways we can help them do their jobs more effectively. The ways we can help include reporting any suspicious activity, documenting tag numbers of vehicles involved in suspicious activity, and noting descriptions of possible suspects. Let's all work together to keep our community safe!
If you are interested in obtaining more information about criminal activity in Perry Hall, please make plans to attend the Perry Hall Improvement Association's general meeting on Thursday, November 10th at 7:30 p.m. at the Perry Hall Library. Captain Mike Balog, the commander of the White Marsh police precinct, will be our guest speaker. He always provides useful information about recent trends and how we can help the police prevent and solve crimes.
