“No one city, no one jurisdiction has it all figured out. We rely on each other. We pick each other’s brains,” Davis said. “We’re in this fight together.”

Davis was fired the next morning by Mayor Catherine Pugh, who said she felt impatient with the continued violence in Baltimore.

Baltimore saw the highest number of killings per-capita last year with 343 homicides. In Chicago, Johnson said, 900 fewer people were shot last year than in 2016.

On Friday, Pugh named Darryl De Sousa as Baltimore’s new police commissioner. She also said she was bringing Malinowski to Baltimore to help in the crime fight.
