The state of Maryland plans to send millions to beef up a Baltimore Police Department warrant task force, pay for additional federal prosecutors to focus on gun crime in the city and send state troopers to take over traffic patrols on Interstate 83, Gov. Larry Hogan announced on Thursday. The governor called violent crime in Baltimore “the No. 1 concern of Marylanders” and said the Maryland State Police will also do more to help other Baltimore Police units, freeing city officers to focus on higher-priority violent crime.
