The Governor appointed this Commission in 1967 to replace the
Commission on Crime and Delinquency. The present Commission is
composed of elected and appointed officials, law enforcement profes-
sional and citizens with knowledge and interest in law enforcement
and justice. The Commission is to evaluate the recommendations of
the President's Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration,
appraising the needs of the State's criminal systems and putting into
effect those proposals of the President's commission that the State
unit finds to be worthwhile for Maryland.
In 1968, the Commission was designated by the Governor as the
State Planning Agency for the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe
Streets Act of 1968. The purpose of this program is to prepare State-
wide comprehensive plans for improving law enforcement and crim-
inal justice, and to make grants to State agencies and to units of
local government for projects and programs consistent with the State
Plan. In 1969, the Governor designated the Commission as the plan-
ning agency for the Federal Juvenile Delinquency Prevention and
Control Act of 1968. The Commission is now developing comprehen-
sive plans for juvenile delinquency prevention, treatment and control.
The Commission is one of six state criminal Justice planning
agencies selected by the U. S. Department of Justice to develop a
prototype for a national computerized criminal Justice information
system. In January 1969, the Commission received $347,000 from the
US. S. Department of Justice for planning, and $139,000 of that amount
was distributed to the Commission's five regional planning boards for
program development. In June of 1969 the Commission presented the
Justice Department with the first-year comprehensive plan for law
enforcement and the administration of justice in Maryland and
received a grant totalling $451,000 for program implementation. Of
this amount, seventy-five percent will be allocated to local units of
government and the balance to State agencies. The Commission is to
make its final report at a later date.
