The BPD has increased its patrol presence in high-crime areas and they're using all of their resources to address violent crime.

“We encourage anyone with information to come forward. More often than people realize, it’s the citizens working with investigators who can turn an investigation around quickly,” said Commissioner Michael Harrison.

The total number of homicides this year is at 168.

This is higher than the number at this same point in time last year.

Anyone with information related to a crime is asked to call Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7-LockUp or contact our Homicide Unit at 410-396-2100.
