The Maryland Criminal Intelligence Network (MCIN) is a criminal justice strategy where law enforcement at the local, state, and federal levels collaborate to target and dismantle criminal networks and their drugs, firearms, and human trafficking operations.

From a Governor’s Office of Crime Prevention, Youth, and Victim Services press release:

The MCIN initiative is funded through the Governor’s Office of Crime Prevention, Youth, and Victim Services. Baltimore County and Harford County were chosen based on crime statistics, proximity to Baltimore City and other jurisdictions participating in the initiative to enhance investigations, as well as proximity to major interstates that can be used for organized criminal activity like drug, firearm, and human trafficking. Adding law enforcement partnerships in Baltimore and Harford Counties will enhance investigations and increase the ability for all MCIN coalitions to share information and leverage resources.

With the addition of Baltimore and Harford Counties, there are now 14 MCIN coalitions in the state.
