DPW: Beware of Public Works Imposters

Timely advice given the recent deception burglaries in and around Lutherville and the regular presence of actual DPW employees along York Road.

The Baltimore City Department of Public Works is warning area residents of the potential for imposters posing a public works employees. 

From director Director, Alfred H. Foxx: 

"Department of Public Works employees are not authorized to enter your home without your permission.

Our employees wear uniforms and have photo ID.  Always ask to see a Baltimore City employee identification card which includes a photograph.

Public Works crew members have been a regular fixture of the Timonium area, as work on a massive pipeline restoration effort persists along York Road near the fairgrounds. 

Foxx's warning comes on the heals of Hurricane Sandy and the potential for an increased presence  of cit, county and utilities crew members in our neighborhoods.
