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). 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 accountability. 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. GOCCP is now on social media.
