What is Baltimore proposing?

Baltimore aims to engage people leaving incarceration and their families to help reduce violent crime in the city, as part of a broader engagement effort. The city, led by the Mayor’s Office on Criminal Justice, would use a mix of traditional and technology-based approaches to engage this population, and is looking to the City Accelerator for support and best practices for this initiative.
