The day after officially introducing his crime bills in the General Assembly, Governor Larry Hogan touted a successful year for the Maryland Criminal Intelligence Network (MCIN). MCIN, a criminal justice strategy announced by Governor Hogan in 2017 and funded through the Governor’s Office of Crime Prevention, Youth, and Victim Services, encourages local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies to collaborate and share information to target, disrupt, and dismantle gangs as well as criminal organizations involved in drug, firearm, and human trafficking operations.

“Crime is the number one concern of Marylanders, and through the work of the Maryland Criminal Intelligence Network, we have dismantled hundreds of criminal organizations and seized more than $9 million in assets,” said Governor Hogan. “Our administration remains committed to providing law enforcement officers with every tool possible to track down, arrest, and convict these criminals and make our communities safer.”

During 2019, the work of the 13 MCIN coalitions in Maryland resulted in:

  • 620 criminal organizations identified
  • 194 drug trafficking organizations disrupted or dismantled
  • 146 human trafficking organizations disrupted or dismantled
  • 77 gangs disrupted or dismantled
  • 21 firearms trafficking organizations disrupted or dismantled
  • $3.4 million in assets seized

MCIN Reports December Successes

During the month of December, MCIN coalition partners targeted criminal gangs and individuals involved in violent crimes, including murder. Authorities were also able to disrupt criminal organizations involved in distributing narcotics, including heroin, fentanyl, and cocaine.

“Our law enforcement partners have risen to the challenge presented by those who attempt to terrorize our communities,” said Glenn Fueston, Executive Director of the Governor’s Office of Crime Prevention, Youth, and Victim Services. “In 2020, we will build on this momentum to increase information sharing between agencies and continue making Maryland safer. ”
