Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts

Police Commissioner Batts confronts the public's concerns about the increase in homicides in 2014.

Lawmakers and citizens continue to publicly express dismay at the sharp increase in homicides, which have been rising since last summer; one of the latest headline-making crimes was an armed robbery of a 12-year-old girl as she walked to school near Patterson Park.

Police Commissioner Anthony Batts answers listener questions about the department's strategy. Also, we hear from David Kennedy, architect of the highly effective crime fighting strategy Operation Ceasefire.
