By Washington Post editors

The U.S. Justice Department is giving more than $300,000 to help fight gun crimes and gang activity in Maryland.

The agency will present the grants to six local agencies and the Maryland attorney general’s office Friday in Frederick.

A $190,000 grant will pay an assistant attorney general to pursue gang and gun crimes.
The western Maryland cities of Cumberland, Frederick and Hagerstown are getting a total of $106,000 to help cover overtime and investigative costs.

On the Eastern Shore, the Fruitland Police Department and the Somerset County Local Management Board will get nearly $19,000 for overtime and educational programs.

And police in Mount Rainier will receive $25,000 for an anti-gang initiative.
