Play associated audio

By Matt Bush

Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley says increased cooperation with D.C. law enforcement has led to a drop in crime on their border.

O'Malley says D.C. and Maryland need to work on the serving of arrest warrants. He met with D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty in Annapolis. They say they are creating databases to share information across the border.

Past meetings included the governor of Virginia, but new Governor Bob McDonnell was not in attendance. A spokesperson for O'Malley says leaders from Virginia were invited, but were not able to attend because of the short time McDonnell has been in office.
