In the $21 million Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) has
promised to battle crime in Baltimore is funding for a surveillance program
that would have a plane flying overhead recording the activities of people and vehicles.

In a letter to the city’s Democratic mayor, Bernard C. “Jack”
Young, Hogan wrote, “You have inherited a difficult situation, but now is the time to
show the people of the city that we are all serious about stopping this deadly
violence and getting shooters off of the streets.”

That includes the use of 10 state police helicopters whose
crews will “conduct law enforcement tactical flights over Baltimore whenever
their duties bring them into or near the city,” a report
in the Baltimore Sun cited the letter as saying.
