Safety Resources, Partners, & Contacts for Bolton Hill

The newest online feature of the Baltimore City website
is a resource for residents and communities concerned with public
safety in Baltimore. The site, called 4 Steps for Fighting Crime,
has consolidated links to find methods of fighting crime. The four steps are:

Report a Crime
Track Crime
Prevent Crime
Speak Out!

The "4 Steps for Fighting Crime" will allow those citizens concerned
with crime in the city to also be part of the solution. I believe
residents can play an even bigger role in making the city safer for
everyone when they are empowered with the knowledge and tools they
need to make a difference.
