Progress Made Dismantling Violent Gang Networks, Multiple Arrests

ANNAPOLIS, MD – The Governor’s Office on Crime Control and Prevention (GOCCP) today announced the Maryland Criminal Intelligence Network (MCIN) model has achieved record arrest rates and successfully targeted violent gangs and drug trafficking organizations statewide during the month of January. These results were identified as a direct result of the MCIN model, funded by the Hogan Administration through the Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention. Announced by Governor Hogan on December 15, 2017, MCIN is a criminal justice strategy, coordinated at the local, state, and federal levels targeting gangs, drug, firearms, and human trafficking.

“The Maryland Criminal Intelligence Network is an integral part of Governor Hogan’s comprehensive strategy to work across jurisdictions to dismantle criminal organizations, remain ahead of potential threats, and to keep our state and citizens safe,” said Glenn Fueston, Executive Director of the Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention. “The success for this effort is a direct result of the strong collaboration among federal, state and local partners.”
