BALTIMORE, MD (Thursday, May 13, 2021) — Communications Director for Mayor Brandon M. Scott, Calvin Harris released the following statement after the Mayor's meeting with Governor Larry Hogan:

Mayor Scott and Commissioner Harrison have worked together over the last few months on building a safer Baltimore. Today, they met with Governor Hogan to attain his partnership in this effort and elevate tactical areas where coordination with state agencies would be useful. The meeting was productive. Mayor Scott presented several immediate steps Governor Hogan could take to reduce violence that target violent repeat offenders, strengthen collaboration across law enforcement agencies, and lessen unessential burdens on Baltimore Police officers to permit more time to fight crime. No funding requests were made by Mayor Scott or Commissioner Harrison. Curing the violence epidemic in Baltimore requires broad coordination and commitment from city, state, and federal partners. Today’s meeting was a step in the right direction, and the Mayor hopes meaningful action will soon follow.
