BBJ: Business leaders get details of Mayor Scott’s new data-focused violence reduction plan

Police Line Crime Scene

Statement of Donald C. Fry, President and CEO, Greater Baltimore Committee, on Baltimore Mayor Scott’s Violence Prevention Framework and Plan

Both prongs of this crime reduction strategy must be implemented simultaneously with equal commitment and intensity. Neither approach on its own will address the crime crisis in the city.
