The police department says it is working with law enforcement partners, community organizations and the business community to address disorder and youthful mischief, and in a few instances, violence in Baltimore’s downtown corridor.

Officers arrested a juvenile following an assault and arrested an individual illegally possessing a firearm.

The Department has initiated special deployments that are in place to address the anticipated increase in teenagers and young adults around the Inner Harbor.

“We know that addressing youthful mischief, disorder and violence is bigger than just the police department,” said Commissioner Michael Harrison. “We are asking for parents, community organizations, juvenile advocates and social services agencies to get involved to prevent these types of destructive behaviors and violence in our city.”

Anyone with information related to these incidents is asked to call Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7-LockUp.
