State officials have invested more manpower and money in an effort to get the most violent offenders sought on warrants off Baltimore’s streets.
Added Maryland state troopers will join the Warrant Apprehension Task Force, a collaboration of law enforcement agencies, through June in seeking Baltimore suspects in violent crimes such as robbery, assault, gun and sex offenses, domestic violence and more.
A grant of nearly $152,000 from the Governor’s Office on Crime Control and Prevention will cover overtime costs for the Summer Jumpstart Warrant Initiative.
