Baltimore City State’s Attorney Gregg Bernstein tells WBAL’s Shari Elliker that his first three days in office have gone well.

Bernstein says he plans to set up data bases to track conviction rates and outcomes in cases so the public can follow these cases.

Bernstein says he also plans to re-design the office to be more strategic in prosecuting the small minority of violent offenders who commit the majority of the crime in the city. He doesn’t think the state’s attorney’s office has been focused enough to do that.

The assistant State’s Attorneys have welcomed him and he is looking forward to a good working relationship with the mayor. He calls the Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake a professional.
