I want to commend the men and women of the Baltimore City Police Department for the job they do every day and especially for their work when hundreds of thousands of people visited the city during Sailabration. Crime could easily have spiked, given the huge influx of visitors, but due to proper deployment of police personnel, the problem was kept to a minimum. City Hall needs to publicly commend these officers for the umbrella of protection they provided. Theirs was a job well done.

Baltimore police are expanding a program aimed at curbing domestic violence, thanks to a $750,000 federal grant, officials said Monday. The grant will allow a pilot program, called the Domestic Violence Reduction Initiative, in three police districts - Northeastern, Northern and Southern - to be expanded to include the entire city, said Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. "It's a problem that can't be solved by City Hall alone," she said. The grant would also provide overtime pay for the police department's Family Crimes Unit, which serves warrants and high priority protective orders and meets with victims at their homes.

Baltimore's mayor and police commissioner are seeking help from city residents to recruit new applicants to the city's 3,100-member police force, which is trying to attract up to 450 new officers over the next several months. On Thursday, the officials on Thursday unveiled the Hometown Heroes Project, a new initiative to reach out to Baltimore residents. The department has often been criticized because many of its officers live in outlying suburbs. "It's a way for someone to give back to their community while making Baltimore a safer place," Mayor Stephanie C. Rawlings-Blake said a news conference at police headquarters.
