Police Services

Wondering what non-emergency services the Annapolis Police Department offer. You can see the list at One in particular asks for a sign up for the “Annapolis Night Reference and Alarm Registration”. This information will be used by the Annapolis Police Department to make contact when emergencies or problems occur and no one is present at the business or residence. This information may be accessed by the Annapolis Police Department and Annapolis Fire Department, but will not be released to any other entity. You will register your alarm and outdoor security cameras.

Report it:  Report street lights out, sidewalks in need of repair, garbage & recycling issues, and more.

The New Year Means Time to Renew ECA Dues

ECA members will soon receive the annual membership letter urging you to renew your membership for 2017. We would like to see every resident in Eastport join the ECA so as to keep up with community activities and information.  Dues are $20 per person and $30 per couple. You can renew your membership (and that of your spouse) online. Your membership will enhance our influence on the city council and in other city affairs.

Eastport Resident Involvement Important

Significant large developments in Eastport are in the pipeline or on the horizon—South Annapolis Yacht Centre, Eastport Shopping Center, Watergate Village, and Annapolis Yacht Club Eastport. If you are silent, you approve the development. If you have concerns, it is important to take individual and collective action. South Annapolis Yacht Centre is close to completing the review process and Watergate Village and Annapolis Yacht Club are still on the horizon.

Immediate attention needs to be given to Eastport Shopping Center, called the Lofts at Eastport Landing, as a hearing could be a little more than a month away. Learn more about this project and how you can express your concerns.​
