“As somebody who bicycles most of the length of the state each year, I know the incredible beauty Delaware has to offer, particularly when it’s not just rolling past your car window.

“Criminals and crime have no boundaries,” said Delaware Governor Jack Markell. “It’s our responsibility to work together across state lines and share information that can benefit citizens of both states, especially as technology allows us to know more and do more. By working collaboratively and using our collective knowledge, we serve everyone by making our streets and our communities safer.”
