Community involvement is essential to preventing and fighting crime.  The U.S. Attorney’s Office is committed to working with communities in Maryland on initiatives related to enforcement, prevention, and assisting victims and witnesses.  We can assist local communities and groups in identifying federal and state grant resources; provide guest speakers on a wide variety of public safety issues; and help connect individuals and groups to public and private services to assist and protect their communities.  For information on any of our community outreach programs, or for questions, please contact: José Lopez-Berrios, Community Outreach Specialist, at 410-209-4832 or

    Fraud, Scams, and Identity Theft

    Consumer fraud and scams target your money, property, or other assets, and can reach you through the phone, mail, e-mail, or over the internet. They can occur in person, at home, or at a business.  Identity theft is a type of crime in which someone wrongfully obtains and uses another person's personal data in some way that involves fraud or deception, typically for economic gain.

    Reentry Resources

    The United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Maryland recognizes the importance of assisting offenders with successful reentry back into the community.  The primary focus of our reentry efforts is to remove or reduce barriers to successful reentry, so that motivated individuals can compete for a job, attain stable housing, support their families, and contribute to their communities.
