Frederick County Agencies Working Together in an Effort to Combat and Prevent Crime

FREDERICK, MD – Several Frederick County agencies are working together in a grant funded program to monitor high-profile offenders in an effort to combat and reduce crime in Frederick County. The Maryland’s Safe Streets initiative (MDSS) grant is funded through the Governor’s Office of Crime Control & Prevention (GOCCP). The grant awarded to the Frederick Police Department provides salaries for the Safe Streets Coordinator, Crime Analyst, Community Prosecutor and enforcement overtime for county law enforcement agencies to serve warrants and conduct enforcement operations.

Maryland’s Safe Streets initiative (MDSS) is an offender-based model established to institute collaboration and information sharing across all levels of government to dramatically reduce crime. The Frederick Safe Streets initiative’s objectives are to focus on priority offender supervision and monitoring, Intelligence/data driven policing, violent crime reduction, and warrant services through a collaborative effort to reduce Part I crime in the City of Frederick and Frederick County.

The partner agencies include: The Frederick Police Department, Frederick County Sheriff’s Office, Maryland State Police, Thurmont Police Department, Brunswick Police Department, Frederick County State’s Attorney’s Office, US Attorney’s Office, Federal Enforcement agencies, Department of Juvenile Services, Office of Community Supervision (formerly Parole & Probation), Frederick County Animal Control, The City of Frederick Code Enforcement, Housing Authority, Frederick County Board of Education, the Community Action Agency, City of Frederick Neighborhood Advisory Council Coordinator and the Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention.

“The Partnerships established by the Safe Streets Grant continues well past the funding and specific grant activities to become everyday ways of doing business.” LT Bryan Brown, Brunswick Police Department

Along with meeting twice a month to review each offender, the agencies work together to locate offenders if a warrant is issued. The success the Frederick team has experienced with serving warrants on priority offenders is due to the solid partnerships that have been formed among local, state, and federal agencies. According to the Safe Streets Coordinator, retired Detective Rob Marker “To reduce violent crimes and make our community a safe environment needs a strong foundation built on communication and information sharing of all agencies involved.”

Another effort of these partner agencies is the Frederick’s Most Wanted program. The Frederick’s Most Wanted program is a partnership with the Frederick News Post and the Safe Streets Coalition. FMW recently marked its 250th capture.

To learn more about the Safe Streets Initiative please contact Rob Marker, Safe Streets Coordinator at 301-600-1242 or rmarker@frederickmdpolice.org
