“This warrant initiative is one goal which shall continue during the life of the grant project with the combination of public safety and social service partners aimed at making neighborhoods safe,” said David Goad, former Allegany County sheriff who oversees the Safe Streets program.

Under the Maryland State Safe Streets’ model, the Cumberland Police Department — in conjunction with the Allegany County Sheriff’s Office and allied law enforcement agencies — is functioning in a unified strategy to reduce crime and improve the quality of our neighborhoods.

“The Safe Streets objective is to reduce crime and criminal activity within the city and surrounding areas — since we know that criminality has no boundaries. The reduction of backlogged arrest warrants is another objective by capitalizing on the excellent cooperation between law enforcement agencies in this area,” said Goad.
