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."
