Gov. Hogan may downplay the holistic approach to crime, but his actions suggest he sees the value

March 28, 2022

We’re glad Gov. Larry Hogan saw reason and requested the release of funds critical to the crime fight in Baltimore City, announcing plans Thursday to spend $6.5 million to bolster Baltimore’s Warrant Apprehension Task Force and to have Maryland State Police take over traffic patrols on Interstate-83, among other initiatives. Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott met with the governor last month and specifically asked for help with warrants, facing a backlog of thousands. And city officials for years have been asking for assistance on I-83, where frequent crashes on the poorly designed road regularly tie up a couple of patrol cars for hours at a time.
