Baltimore City was one of 10 cities chosen to join the National Public Safety Partnership.
As part of the partnership, the City gets a boost in federal support for their law enforcement and prosecutorial efforts that target violent crime.
“The Public Safety Partnership is a successful program that directs federal law enforcement resources to the cities where they can have the greatest impact,” Attorney General Barr said. “These resources help police departments to diagnose where crime is highest—and why—and to find, arrest and prosecute criminals. Several participating cities have already seen dramatic reductions in violent crime over the past two years. As we expand this program to 10 more cities across America, we are determined to replicate that success.”
