Message from the Chief

Dear Residents:

 

The Village of Chevy Chase is a wonderful community and I am proud to serve as your Chief of Police.  Our overarching goal is to work directly with you to maintain a high level of safety and security in our neighborhoods by providing superior police service to you—and to those visiting or traveling through the Village—in a courteous, caring way.   

 

We realize that your safety and security are important to you, and in order to be successful at preventing crime and minimizing traffic and pedestrian risks, we need your continuous help.  Property crime—specifically, thefts from unlocked cars at nighttime—is our most prevalent crime problem year over year.  We want and need to hear from you whenever you see someone or hear something that makes you suspicious.  Our officers will respond and investigate the situation, and they will gladly let you know the outcome.  It is vitally important that you call without hesitation.  Please help us to help you by giving us a call.  That’s what we’re here for.

 

The Village is a great place to live, and its property values are among the highest in the region. The officers of the Chevy Chase Village Police Department understand that they play a key role in maintaining the Village’s high quality of life. I commit to you that we will do our best to keep you safe so that the Village continues to be an enjoyable and desirable place to live. I further commit to you that my officers and I will be accessible to you—in person, by phone, or by email—to serve your needs to the best of our ability, and we will do so with courtesy and respect for all persons.

 

I look forward to meeting and serving you.

 

John Fitzgerald

Chief of Police
