Bruchey says crime unit is having impact
Mayor Robert E. Bruchey II said he has noticed a difference along North Jonathan Street since the city's new street crime unit hit the streets on Jan. 27.
"I think you guys are doing a fantastic job," Bruchey told Hagerstown Police Chief Dale Jones and two of his captains during a City Council work session on Tuesday.
"It's a lot calmer down there. I can tell when you guys are there," he said.
Capt. Robert Voytko said 41 arrests were made and $6,782 in funds confiscated in the crime unit's first two weeks in operation.
