Williamsport and Philadelphia are going to work together to try to cut down on violent crime in both cities. s

Williamsport Mayor Gabe Campana says he will meet with Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter in late March to talk about people wanted on drug, weapons and assault charges - people who may be traveling between the two cities.

Philadelphia recently published on its Web site a "Most Wanted" list of 150 fugitives. Campana says that list will also be posted soon on Williamsport's Web site.

In addition, Campana says he is working to establish a connection with Newark, N.J. Mayor Cory Booker in an effort to extend the fight against violent crime.
