Crime Prevention Programs

Bicycle Registrations - To reduce the number of bicycles stolen and assist the Fruitland Police Department in their recovery, we encourage all owners to register their bicycles. There is no cost for the bicycle registry.

Career Day - Officers participate in an Annual Career Day at the Fruitland Intermediate School during which officers interact with students, share their law enforcement experiences and duties.

CrimeSolvers - The Fruitland Police Department is an active participant of CrimeSolvers, a local non-profit organization. This anonymous program allows citizens with information about crimes/wanted persons to call into hotline number. CrimeSolvers will pay cash rewards up to $1,000 or more, depending on the crime. Tips may be called into 410-548-1776.

National Night Out Against Crime - This annual event is held on the first Tuesday night each August. Its purpose is to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, strengthen neighborhood and community-policing involvement and encourage residents to take a stand against crime.

Neighborhood Watch - A program designed to teach residents various techniques for protecting their home and property, train them in recognizing and reporting suspicious activities and encouraging them to work with the Fruitland Police Department and each other to make their neighborhoods more safe.

Operation Identification - As a component of Neighborhood Watch, residents are provided with a Personal Property form for their home which can be use to list items of value and their serial numbers in the event items are lost or stolen. This will facilitate the recovery of property stolen as well as assist with insurance claims.

Safety Presentations - Upon request, officers are available to provide specialized personal safety/crime prevention presentations to groups or businesses concerning such topics as child identification, safety seat awareness, drug awareness and so forth.
