Attempted Burglary on East Side

Front door kicked, door frame damaged, but thief did not enter

At 2:24 p.m. on Tuesday, January 29, 2019, the Montgomery County Emergency Communications Center dispatched a call for an alarm at a home in the 100 block of Primrose Street (between Brookville Road and Oxford Street).
Village Officer Joseph Chung arrived on the scene at 2:26 p.m. and immediately found that the front door was slightly ajar.  On closer inspection, Officer Chung could see that the door handle and frame had been damaged.  Officer Chung called for assistance.  Additional Village and County officers quickly arrived and surrounded the house.
Officer Chung and the K9 team made entry into the home to make sure that it was safe.  It had been snowing prior to the alarm, yet there were no wet footprints inside the foyer nor was there any other evidence of someone having entered the home. The officers searched the house; there was no one inside and it appeared to be undisturbed.  When the homeowner arrived, she verified that nothing inside the house had been moved or taken.  The person who damaged the door did not enter the home; perhaps the sound of the alarm caused him to leave.  Officers conducted a neighborhood canvass and found no eyewitnesses. 
In this event, the resident locked their home and set their alarm.  Residents are encouraged to do so. 
Residents are urged to direct their alarm monitoring companies to call the Chevy Chase Village Police Department rather than the County Police Department.  Due to the volume and serious nature of some of the calls that the County Police receive, alarm calls are low priority calls for them.  If the County Police are busy, incoming alarm calls will be held in queue while higher priority calls are dispatched.  Village officers may be available to respond, but if the call is being held by the County, our Village officers will not be aware of the call.  To avoid this potential delay, residents should make sure that their alarm company is directed to call the Village at 301-654-7300 to get an immediate police response.

Green and Brown shrubbery with Dryopteris tag


Members of the Garden Club of Chevy Chase (GCCC) have found a way to enhance the Village parks.   The GCCC Conservation Committee has joined forces with the Chevy Chase Village Parks and Green Spaces Committee to provide shrub-tagging throughout the Village parks, including the:  Brookville Road Park, Little Triangle Park, Oliver Street Park, Buffer Area and the Betty English Garden.  Members  began tagging in their own Betty English Garden, a lovely small space located at the corner of Brookville Road and Oxford Street. Following the tagging of this area, members tagged shrubs in the Buffer Area.  The Club has allocated funds to maintain and continue tagging in the other  designated Village parks over the next two years.  Susan Dixon, Conservation Committee Chair, says “the program aims to help educate community residents about the variety of shrubs placed throughout the Village Parks.  

Please be a Considerate Owner/Handler at the Brookville Road Dog Park

Image of Dog Barking at park

Village police have received calls from residents living near the Brookville Dog Park of incessantly barking dogs.  According to park rules (and Village Code), users of the dog park are required to attend to their dogs to prevent their dogs from continuously or uncontrollably barking.  If a dog continues to bark, the owner/handler must remove the dog from the park.  An occasional bark is expected, but constant barking is disturbing to other park users as well as the surrounding neighbors.
Police officers have been stopping by the park proactively to talk with visitors to make them aware of this rule.  If you bring a dog to the park, please be considerate and calm your dog right away if it begins to bark.

Compost Crew Image

Join the Crew; The Compost Crew

Food-waste recycling--otherwise known as “composting” is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint and greenhouse emissions while returning nutrients to our soil and food system. 

The Village has partnered with The Compost Crew to provide low-cost household collection of food-waste. The Compost Crew provides each household with an airtight bin and compostable bags; all you have to do is separate your organic waste and leave the bin by your trash and recycling receptacles for collection on the designated day for weekly pick-up. The collected waste is processed at a composting facility in Maryland and, after six months of service, households can request that a portion of your contributed waste be returned in the form of rich, finished nutrient-rich soil. 

For more information regarding the household composting collection service, including current rates, please visit the “Food Waste Recycling Program” page on the Village website under Quick Links on the homepage. The more households that sign-up,the cheaper the service is for all, so sign up today!
