Vehicle lockouts & Vehicle jump starts
The Maryland Capitol Police Department (MCPD) responds to several types of non emergency calls. The most common is a motor vehicle lockout. MCPD will assist visitors and state employees with motor vehicle lockouts on the Baltimore and Annapolis complexes as well as the surrounding areas. When you call, please let the Police Communications Operator know the make and model of the vehicle, location, parking lot #, street address, call back number, and if the vehicle is running or if a child is inside. Call the Maryland Capitol Police Communications and Dispatch Center at 410-260-2911 in Annapolis or 410-767-2911 in Baltimore for a lockout request.
The MCPD offers jump starts to individuals needing assistance with weak or dead batteries. Persons needing jump starts can contact the Maryland Capitol Police Communications and Dispatch Center at 410-260-2911 in Annapolis or 410-767-2911 in Baltimore. Drivers of vehicles needing jump starts should raise the hood of their vehicle to help identify their vehicle.
Obtaining Police Reports
One of the most frequently requested services is providing copies of police records. The DGS-MCP records are made available upon written request from parties of interest (i.e. victims, suspect of report, or lawyers representing parties). However, some records are not releasable due to State Freedom of Information Regulations, for example: open investigations, cases pending in court, juvenile and youth records, and arrest records that have been expunged.
Send your requests for copies of reports to:
DGS - Maryland Capitol Police
