In or out?

Baltimore and the U.S. Department of Justice on Thursday began their formal search for a monitor to oversee sweeping reforms to city policing mandated by a court-ordered consent decree.The request for applications from prospective monitoring teams marked the first step in the process since a federal judge approved the consent decree earlier this month.
And this: 
Baltimore’s mayor asked the FBI to send in reinforcements Wednesday to help the city get its murders under control.
Mayor Catherine Pugh, speaking at a news conference, explained she went to the FBI’s Baltimore office for extra agents to join with police officers in combating a skyrocketing murder count, reports CNN.
“Murder is out of control. There are too many guns on the streets. We’re looking for all the help we can get,” Pugh said.
