Salisbury Police Chief Barbara Duncan told a community meeting last night that the emphasis by law enforcement has shifted over the years from the number of arrests to a focus on community policing.

Delmarva Media Group along with the Salisbury University’s Institute for Public Affairs and Civic Engagement sponsored the meeting.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the Salisbury University Police Chief Edwin Lashley said he viewed his agency as a resource beyond making arrests.

Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis, fresh from participating in law enforcement efforts during the Baltimore riots, told the gathering that he appreciated the relationship between police and the community in the region.
