As development transforms northern Baltimore County, police have more to worry about than cows and deer wandering onto busy roads. They must contend with traffic congestion, fluctuating burglary and robbery rates and violence in the workplace. For police in the Cockeysville precinct - the county's largest, covering 230 square miles from just north of the Beltway to the Pennsylvania line - that means quickly creating strategies to address problems they had not seen two years ago. Every month, new businesses and housing developments take over what used to be farmland.

Baltimore County police made 18 auto theft arrests last month in an effort to curtail the wave of car thefts in the southwestern part of the county, along the city border. Capt. John A. Spiroff, commander of the Wilkens precinct, said the auto thefts were concentrated in Lansdowne and Arbutus, prompting him to increase police personnel within the Wilkens precinct. "When we saw that, we started increasing our traffic enforcement along main [traffic] arteries," said Spiroff, who keeps maps hanging in the hallway outside his office marking the theft locations.
