Harrison: BPD making strides in reducing crime, violence
Baltimore's police commissioner said the city is beginning to see some results from its violence-reduction strategies. It's no secret the Baltimore Police Department has struggled in its efforts to gain the trust of residents and fight violent crime. But Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison told the 11 News I-Team in an exclusive interview on Tuesday that the BPD is making strides in reducing crime and violence. Harrison cited a decline in both homicides and non-fatal shootings, and he credited crime-fighting strategies, collaborative efforts and partnerships with city agencies and community organizations.
