MARYLAND – Lawmakers in Annapolis are considering several different pieces of legislation dealing with gangs and gang violence.

Among the bills being considered, a measure that would allow police and school officials in Maryland to share information about gang activity.

The measure is being supported by Anne Arundel County John Leopold. Leopold started pushing for the bill after the death of Crofton teen Christopher Jones. His beating death was allegedly gang related.

Leopold says the bill requires greater communication sharing between the police department and the school system.

He says there are certain offenses like witness intimidation and trespassing that police can not share with a school principal or superintendent. “This will enable them to do that,” says Leopold.

The County Executive says there other things that need to be done to help combat gang crimes. He would like to see stricter penalties for gang violence and more parenting awareness to identify the signs of gang activity involving their kids.
