A Message from the Chief of Police

To the Citizens of Cottage City and Colmar Manor:

The Colmar Manor Police Department and the Cottage City Police Department are notifying you of a series of citizen armed robberies, nine in total, that have occurred in Hyattsville, Maryland area since December 2016.

The crimes have all occurred in Hyattsville, between Queens Chapel Road, Hamilton Street and Ager Road.  All the robberies have happened on weekdays, most frequently on Friday mornings.

The Hyattsville Police Department  has indicated that the suspect involved is a black male, approximately six-feet-tall, wearing all black clothing with a hood covering his head.

Neither Colmar Manor nor Cottage City have experienced any similar crimes, however, it is always prudent not to walk alone in the middle of the night or the early morning hours.

Chief William L. Lowry


POLICE WALK AND TALK PROGRAM


Police Chief Lowry is instituting a “Walk and Talk” Program that encourages officers to park their cars and walk the neighborhood they patrol.  This gives officers a chance to get to know the residents and help build relationships in the communities.  It also allows our citizens an opportunity to know their police officers in person.  This policing program will assist our Patrol Officers in having a better understanding of the issues in the assigned wards and build relationships on trust.  Working together with our community is the key to keeping the Town of Cottage City a safe place to live, work and play. For more information on the program, please contact the Cottage City Police Department at (301) 927-9225.
