"With this multi-jurisdictional effort, we are going to take violent offenders off our streets and make Baltimore's neighborhoods safer," said Mayor Rawlings-Blake. "

Police officers and agents from the Baltimore Police Department, Baltimore City Sheriff's Office, Maryland State Police, Division of Parole and Probation, and the Department of Juvenile Services will join together to form eight warrant squads.

The squads will serve warrants for violent crimes, this includes: gun crimes, violations of probation, sex offenses, and domestic violence.
