Cold Cases and Police Boundaries

Time frame: modern day (some 1970's)
Location: Maryland (Baltimore City/Kent County)

I would use Google for this, but I don't know what I would search. I hope someone here could help.

I'm writing a story where a detective from the Towson police district of Baltimore County promises a friend to open her mother's murder, which has become a cold case. (The mother died in the mid-seventies.) Thing is, the mother was killed in a seperate police district and political boundary, Kent County, which is near Delaware (Baltimore County borders PA, Towson is in the southern bit). The detective is also not a special cold case unit detective, but he does work in homicide

Basically:

Is there any way the detective could get cold case files from the other police district? Would he need superior approval? Would he need to give a reason for needing the files and what reason would be considered viable?
