What is involved with the credentialing process and how long does it take?

Is Baltimore a safe city in which to work?
Baltimore City is a very diverse, vibrant city with much to offer. The neighborhoods are also very economically diverse and unfortunately some of those neighborhoods have high levels of robberies and violent crime. The University of Maryland Baltimore Police maintains a high profile and this has resulted in few incidents of crime on the University campus. Shuttle services and escorts are also available to University of Maryland employees. Whenever you relocate, you should research the crime and safety statistics for your new neighborhood. Some Baltimore safety statistics can be found at: http://baltimore.areaconnect.com/crime1.htm Crime statistics for the University of Maryland Baltimore campus are available weekly at 410-706-2677.
