Baltimore is officially divided into nine geographical regions: Northern, Northwestern, Northeastern, Western, Central, Eastern, Southern, Southwestern, and Southeastern, with each patrolled by a respective Baltimore Police Department
district. However, it is not uncommon for locals to divide the city simply by East or West Baltimore, using Charles Street or I-83
as a dividing line, and/or into North and South using Baltimore Street as a dividing line.
