ANNAPOLIS, MD—Governor Larry Hogan today announced $45 million for major violent crime initiatives, more resources to expand warrant initiatives in Baltimore City, and additional funding to protect victim services providers from devastating federal cuts. The governor also announced expanded initiatives and coordination to address violent crime in Baltimore City, and again called on the Maryland General Assembly to pass his emergency crime bills.

“These are critical investments of funding and manpower to assist Baltimore City law enforcement, and we will continue to take additional actions at the state level to back them up in every way we can,” said Governor Hogan. “With only 18 days left of the session, both the House  and the Senate need to finish the job by finally passing the Violent Firearms Offender Act, which will actually help us get the shooters and murderers off the streets.”
