The “Safe Streets” strategy includes a unique outreach component where streetwise counselors mediate disputes in crime-prone neighborhoods and head off developing violent situations.
In the three areas of Baltimore City where Safe Streets has been deployed since July 2007, the combined homicide rate has been reduced by 80 percent, and violent crime is down 40 percent.
The Greater Baltimore Committee is urging everyone, businesses and individuals, city and non-city residents, to support this worthy investment to dramatically reduce the daily tragedies that diminish the quality of life for all in Baltimore City and the region.
