Baltimore City is wrestling with multiple public health crises: the global COVID-19 pandemic and local epidemics of gun violence and preventable overdose deaths. Since 2015, Baltimore has seen more than 300 homicides per year—the overwhelming majority of which were gun-related. In 2020, there were 954 opioid-related overdose deaths in Baltimore.
Historically, Baltimore has over-relied on the 3Ps – policing, prosecutions, and prisons – in an attempt to reduce violence and strengthen community safety. This strategy has not only failed to yield long- term results, it has also come at an extremely high social cost to many of our most vulnerable communities.
Never before has Baltimore developed a holistic public safety strategy, one that aims to treat gun violence as a public health crisis and operationalizes what Baltimore residents want to see from their City government. Furthermore, the City has never developed a multi-year plan to reduce violence in a sustainable way over time, not just for a year or two.

For example there is a recent report where there is a publication that crime in 2020 WENT DOWN???
In 2020, a year defined by the COVID-19 pandemic,the crime rate in California’s 72 largest cities declined by an average of 7 percent, falling to a historic low level(FBI, 2021). From 2019 to 2020, 48 cities showed declines in Part I violent and property felonies, while 24 showed increases. The 2020urban crime decline follows a decade of generally falling property and violent crime rates. These declines coincided with monumental criminal justice reforms that have lessened penalties for low-level offenses and reduced prison and jail populationsAs reported in: CALIFORNIA URBAN CRIME DECLINED IN 2020 AMID SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC UPHEAVAL

This is an AWESOME website if you are interested in the murder totals in Chicago. Det 273 gave me this one. Thanks.
It is actually sad that Chicago can’t do a better job with controlling the murders. I think. The cops there aren’t the problem so it must be administration or the politicians. Professor Wesley Skogan has been working with CPD for decades. With all the crime-fighting strategies that policing has something should work.
