Office of the State's Attorney for Baltimore City

For Immediate Release 1/14/2015

At an all-staff meeting held in the auditorium of Baltimore Police Headquarters, members of the State’s Attorney’s Office convened to learn about the new organizational direction of the office. Newly elected Baltimore City State’s Attorney, Marilyn Mosby, also announced new hires and internal promotions to key roles in her administration.

Aside from a small number of vacancies and unit relocations within the building, Mosby’s transition is largely complete.

“It’s been a busy week and a half, but I’m glad that the team and organization are all in place.” Mosby said. “With any new administration there’s change— and change can be hard, so it was important for us to make this transition as smooth and efficient as possible.”

Part of the re-organization features the creation of the Criminal Strategies Unit, headed by former BPD Det. Joshua Rosenblatt. The unit is modeled after a successful unit established in the Manhattan, New York District Attorney’s Office under the leadership of Cyrus Vance Jr. Further changes include the establishment of a Misdemeanor Unit, a unification of the Forfeiture and Economic Crimes Units, and changes to the community prosecution model established under Mosby’s predecessor.

Mosby said that several positions within the administration were intentionally left vacant. She wanted to provide opportunities for promotion within the office, and encouraged all staff that was interested to apply.
