City Council Committee Holds Hearing On Juvenile Crime

(Baltimore, MD) -- The Baltimore City Council's Public Safety and Government Operations committee held a hearing Wednesday with much of the focus on juvenile crime.

Councilmembers spoke with Police, MONSE, and the Department of Juvenile Services about interagency coordination and holding juveniles accountable.

Councilman Zeke Cohen says there's not a feeling of accountability or any restoration happening.

He says constituents feel like the systems are dropping the ball and allowing the young people to slip through the cracks.

He says there's a crisis of young people committing crimes, being arrested, released, and not being held accountable.
