    Baltimore Safe Streets anti-violence program suspended after guns, drugs found.

    Safe Streets, a grant-funded program that operates in four locations throughout Baltimore under the city’s Health Department, uses outreach workers, including past offenders, to go into the community to help reduce violence, The Baltimore Sun reported.

    Police said a robbery investigation led them to the McElderry Park office, where they found guns, heroin, cocaine, and other items used in the manufacturing and sale of drugs, The Sun reported.

    Safe Streets, a grant-funded program under the city's Health Department, uses ex-felons in an effort to stem crime. The program has been lauded for keeping violence at a minimum in the four neighborhoods where it operates, and some officials have urged its replication across the city.

    The program has had trouble in the past, with offices previously suspended in 2010 and 2013 amid criminal allegations against employees. It has also faced criticism over its recruiting practices.
