Harford County Sheriff's Office

With courage, honor, and integrity, we protect the rights of all citizens



The three things necessary to commit a crime are: Desire, Ability, and Opportunity, known as the Crime Triangle. As a citizen there is little you can do to affect a criminal's desire and/or ability to commit crime. Therefore, minimizing/eliminating opportunity is your best defense against crime.

We have provided a range of crime prevention awareness materials and information in this section of our web from various resources. We encourage you to read and share the information with your friends, family and co-workers.
