Baltimore Announces Crime Crackdown

posted on July 15, 2015

Rampant violent crime in Baltimore has prompted city officials to create a new “war room,” aimed at fighting violence around the clock.

Violent crime has boomed in the city since a man died while in police custody in April and widespread rioting ensued. The 42 homicides in Baltimore in May marked the deadliest month in the city in a quarter of a century.

Interim Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis told the Baltimore Sun that the new operations center will “ensure there are no gaps in our intelligence sharing, no gaps in our operational capacities, and no gaps in our overall commitment to identify the small number of folks who are harming our communities.” Davis said officials have identified “four different groups of bad guys who are responsible for a disproportionate amount of violence in Baltimore City, and we're going to work around the clock until we get to the point of probable cause to start taking those folks off the streets.”
