Crime Control & Prevention

Under the Mosby Administration, the Office of the State’s Attorney for Baltimore City has made youth programming a priority through the Crime Control and Prevention (CCP) Unit by developing programs that introduce the city’s youth to the criminal justice system in hopes that they will not enter the system as a defendant. These efforts include the Junior State’s Attorney program, which employs Baltimore City ninth graders for the summer exposing them to the different components of the local criminal justice system, the Great Expectations program, a ten-month program that introduces fourth grade Baltimore City Public School children to professions within the criminal justice system and Project 17, an employment and mentorship program aimed at chronically truant high school students. CCP also serves the young adult population through its AIM to B’More program. CCP, the only Crime Control and Prevention unit to a local prosecutorial office in Maryland, is led by an Assistant State’s Attorney who serves as the Deputy Director and manages 4 full-time staff including a Youth Coordinator, Adult Violence Prevention Coordinator, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Paralegal.
