Concern rises about crime in the Anne Arundel County, according to poll

April 25, 2022

About a quarter of Anne Arundel County residents believe crime is the county’s most concerning issue, according to a survey from Anne Arundel Community College. The poll found that 26% of respondents rated crime as the “most important problem facing the residents of Anne Arundel County” this year. Only 13% considered it the top problem last fall when the seriousness of COVID-19 was the most cited issue in the survey. Concern about drugs — the use or sale of illegal drugs such as heroin, cocaine, or use of prescription painkillers for nonmedical purposes — fared similarly with 20% of respondents saying it is the most important issue compared to 9% last fall.
