(BALTIMORE) — Police in Baltimore announced that they are collaborating with a number of federal law enforcement partners to help quell a surge in violence the city has seen in recent weeks.

The Baltimore Police Department will work with the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Agency, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the U.S. Marshals and the Secret Service, starting Monday. Each agency will send a pair of full-time special agents to be embedded in the BPD’s homicide unit.

The Baltimore Sun reports that 10 people were shot — including seven in one incident — overnight Saturday into Sunday.
