The University of Baltimore’s Center for Public Safety Innovation (CPSI) is a nationally renowned applied research center within the College of Public Affairs designed to support community safety initiatives by leveraging nationally recognized policy experts, advocates, and scholars dedicated to identifying best practices and policies to reduce violence and drug trafficking.  CPSI’s mission is to invest in and evaluate practices that impact and reduce violence and drug trafficking in communities. We are a unit funded exclusively through external grants that include a robust grant portfolio of federal, state, and non-profit funded activities. As the home of the Washington/Baltimore High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (W/B HIDTA) program, we remain at the forefront of research and best practices designed to disrupt and dismantle drug and money laundering activities connected to an international network of law enforcement and public health professionals dedicated to saving lives. This activity uniquely positions the CPSI to leverage resources effectively making significant impacts across the country.
