Pugh, Hogan Collaborate To Reduce Crime In Baltimore

Gov. Larry Hogan and Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh met Monday afternoon to discuss ways to reduce crime in the city.

The mayor said she came away hopeful that the state and city will better share resources. The mayor said she considers the meeting productive and she walked away confident they will be working together to reduce crime.

Pugh discussed a wide range of crime-fighting strategies with the governor, from ways to put more officers on the street to adopting high-tech models from Los Angeles and Chicago.

"Part of that means advanced technology that we don't currently have. Some of it we do have, like we do have smartphones. We don't have computers in all of our cars, we don't have e-tickets yet," Pugh said. "We do have (gunshot detection and locator service) ShotSpotter. We don't have it wide enough in Baltimore City, and so we talked to him about that."

Is it just me or does the idea of throwing more money at crime fighting technology remind you of all the money wasted on Obamacare exchanges? They can put Anthony Brown in charge. SMH

Can someone please tell that bonehead overweight RINO that it isn't the taxpayers responsibility to throw/waste precious tax dollars on crime in Baltimore City. It is not my responsibility to work my ass off and have this clown throw money at people who didn't even and won't ever vote for him or any Republican.

You can run a black man for an elected position in a mostly Democrat area and the blacks won't vote for him if he is a Republican. Look at Michael Steele.

3 stop wasting money and taxing everyone into poverty and bring back jobs

5:36 You used Mike Steele as an example? Really. Even the blacks referred to him as Whitey, because he certainly wasn't representing them.

What about throwing the Obama / Lynch restrictions they imposed through DOJ out the window and in the Bay. Then let the Police Officers do their job. Then force these liberal Judges to do their job and keep the criminals off the streets. That is "Common Sense" reform. Baltimore created these conditions and is their responsibility not the rest of the State.

Hogan has already said what he is going to do about crime. Look at his Justice Reinvestment Act. He's letting everyone out of jail and making sure they're never held accountable in court. How about another $30 million for heroin addicts, too???

Want to reduce crime allow law abiding citizens the right to protect ourselves. CONCEALED CARRY is the solution. saves court costs, less cops needed and the best deterrent

BLM wanted it and they got it. Residents should call BLM to come fix the black murder rate in black areas.
