Some neighborhood safety tips

We all love living in Ridgely’s Delight. It’s close to everything and it’s one of the safest neighborhoods in town. But with the warmer weather, opportunistic crimes such as theft and larceny will be on the rise across the city. The Ridgely’s Delight Safety Committee is working on ways to discourage this kind of activity in our neighborhood, and we need your help.

We are in the process of obtaining Neighborhood Watch signs and potential lighting upgrades for some of our darker corners and alleys. However, one of the most effective crime deterrents is having active and concerned citizens who stay alert and report issues. The more we are proactive about supporting each other, the less likely criminals will want to hang around this area.

Recently your neighbors stopped an assault, reported someone stealing catalytic converters and helped police apprehend thieves in our neighborhood by offering their camera footage for the investigations.

Please consider doing one or more of the following to promote public safety:

  • Add lighting around the outside of your property
  • If you can, participate in the Monday Citizens on Patrol walks at 7:30pm. Email maia.tatinclaux@gmail.com for more information.
  • Link your cameras to the CitiWatch program at citiwatch.baltimorecity.gov
  • If you see or hear something, please call 911
  • Be seen in the neighborhood. The more active our streets are, the less crime-friendly we are.
