The Greater Northwest Neighborhoods of Baltimore City (GNNBC) held a Town Hall meeting Wednesday to help reduce crime in the area. 

The meeting took place at the Forest Park Senior Center. GNNBC members and community leaders wanted to find ways to fight crime in neighborhoods such as Ashburton, Calloway-Garrison, Dolfield, Dorchester, East Arlington-Ashburton, Forest Park, Grove Park, Howard Park and West Arlington.

City leaders like State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby and Baltimore Police were in attendance and addressed the crowd. This being the first step members of the community wanted to make sure this momentum continues moving forward.

"We just want some reassurance that these issues are being addressed. we're not being forgotten about when we're talking about these issues. We want to continue to address them so we know we are making many steps forwards and not steps backward." Said Sean Stinnett, President Greater Northwest Neighborhoods of Baltimore City.

Another big message from Wednesday's night meeting is that neighbors need to be more involved in finding solutions to keep the community safe.
