Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $1,428,571)

The purpose of Operation Relentless Pursuit (ORP) is to fund state and local law enforcement task forces in an effort to reduce violent crime. The objective of ORP is to combat violent crime by building federal cases against violent actors and their organizations. As such, applicants are required to work proactively with the U.S. Attorney’s Office and other relevant federal investigative agencies to investigate and prosecute targets involved in gangs, drug trafficking and other violent crime related issues.

The Baltimore Police Department (BPD) will deploy modern technology platforms capable of helping investigators identify and locate the violent suspects or vulnerable victims, who otherwise could not be located. These technological enhancements will aid the various BPD specialized units working within federal task forces to investigate and prosecute targeted suspects involved in gangs, drug trafficking, and other violent related crimes.
