Like Starsky and Hutch or Turner and Hooch, ABC7 reported that Alexandria and Prince George’s County police are working together on violent crime issues.

ABC7 reported that Prince George’s County Councilmember Edward Burroughs said that “crime has no borders” and localities need to work together as a region if they want to combat the problem.

Alexandria Mayor Justin Wilson said the city has been working closely with officials at National Harbor on violent crimes, ABC7 said.

Over the past year, crime has increased at National Harbor by 108%, according to ABC7.

Recently there have been multiple incidents at the MGM Casino at National Harbor. There was an attempted armed carjacking and stabbing outside the casino. In another incident, masked men fled the casino after seizing gaming chips.
