Cooperation Leading To Reduction In Crime

By Matt Bush

The governor of Maryland the mayor of D.C. are hailing a reduction in crime along their border.

Before reaching his current position, D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty was a city councilman for Ward 4, which borders both Montgomery and Prince George's Counties in Maryland. He said residents back then felt crime solving stopped at the border.

He and Maryland governor Martin O'Malley say increased cooperation has led to a drastic drop in homicides. D.C. saw its lowest homicide total in 45 years in 2009, while the suburban Maryland counties also saw reductions in murders.
