A new partnership between private and public agencies in Baltimore promises to strengthen security around Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Baltimore city officials say hospital security and city police will share video from surveillance cameras already in place around the hospital's east Baltimore campus.

Police will receive the video feed from 136 cameras placed around the perimeter of the campus and Hopkins security staff will have access to video from six city-operated cameras. The arrangement has been approved by the city's spending board.

Sheryl Goldstein, director of the Mayor's Office on Criminal Justice, says the city is also negotiating a similar arrangement with the Maryland Transit Administration to share video from bus stops and light rail stations.

She adds this marks the first time the city has partnered with a private agency to share a security resource.
