The Washington Post reported today that crime in Prince George’s County, MD has dropped more than 14% in the first half of this year. That’s good news for the county, which is generally regarded as a high-crime area. They’ve had 10 fewer killings, 12 fewer rapes, and 1,307 fewer stolen cars in the six-month period, which the police attribute to closer contact with the people in their communities and addressing symptoms before they become problems.
