'SAFE STREETS'

Anti-Violence Group Busted for Drugs

A Baltimore anti-violence program has been suspended after police discovered seven guns and a “felony amount” of drugs inside the program’s offices. Police were investigating a robbery when they went into the offices of Safe Streets, a grant-funded program that enlists ex-felons to help stem violence, and ended up arresting two employees. “This incident is a reflection on the individuals involved, and should not take away the great successes of Safe Streets and the role it has played in reducing violence.” Safe Streets has already been suspended twice before, once in 2010 and again in 2013.
