            GOCCP Awards More Than $2.4 Million to Programs for Violence

             The Governor’s Office of Crime Control & Prevention (GOCCP) today announced new
     grants to police departments, local governments and non-profit organizations to help fight violent
     crime in Maryland. The funds total $2,476,036.00, and they come through the Violence
     Prevention Initiative of the Collaborative Supervision and Focused Enforcement Program

            CSAFE-VPI identifies areas of crime and targets specific types of violent offenders.
     Additionally, it provides focused and coordinated law enforcement, offender supervision, and
     crime prevention and reduction efforts.

            Governor Martin O’Malley says this collaborative and focused approach to public safety
     has been a major factor in Maryland’s historic reductions in crime. “These cooperative efforts
     provide security integration, allowing many groups to form partnerships and law enforcement
     agencies to collaborate on shared challenges. The result is a safer and more secure Maryland.”

            CSAFE focuses its efforts on Maryland’s most violent offenders through partnerships
     between local law enforcement, the Division of Parole and Probation (DPP) and the Department
     of Juvenile Services (DJS). 2,300 of Maryland’s most violent offenders are under the close
     supervision of DPP. The program removes offender anonymity and replaces it with

             Along with monitoring the most serious offenders, CSAFE-VPI funds are used for a
     variety of purposes to meet the specific challenges of local jurisdictions. In some cases they
     might be used to focus resources and personnel on violent crimes, such as robbery. In others they
     might be used to fund joint efforts by local and state agencies in tracking and arresting wanted
     felons. In other cases, they might be used to enhance community policing efforts and programs
     designed to help youth. Some jurisdictions use their funds to combine several different
     approaches to crime, collaborating with other agencies to make their communities safer.
