Town of Cottage City

Police News



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.
