BALTIMORE — In an effort to reduce crime in the city, Baltimore has become a National Public Safety Partnership site.

This partnership with the U.S. Department of Justice will provide training and technical assistance that aims to reduce violence in the city.

"PSP opens up a new channel to get new creative, state of the art policing tactics and strategies from around the country that will enhance our capabilities here in Baltimore, add new tools to our tool kit and provide technical expertise in specific areas where it is most needed," said Robert Hur, U.S. Attorney for Maryland.

The public safety partnership was established two years ago and includes more than 30 cities.
