DPP Field Office Profile: Madison Street in Baltimore

TOWSON, MD — Just above Highlandtown, Canton, and Greektown, across Bocek Field from the 150 Amtrak and MARC trains that whoosh by daily, the Madison Street Field Office of the Division of Parole and Probation carries on as one of our busiest offices.

One of a half-dozen field offices needed to handle the high volume of Baltimore City supervision cases, Madison Street is known for caring employees who have gone so far as to collect, buy, and put together hygiene kits for the large number of indigent and struggling parolees and probationers.

Veteran Field Supervisor Connie Gantt is known as the matriarch, watching like a hawk for signs of flagging morale, and quickly responding to keep spirits high.

The busy office has 34 employees who handle everything from high supervision to Interstate Compact and domestic violence cases.

It’s located on the east side of Baltimore, near where Madison and Monument streets come together, just west of where Pulaski Highway takes U.S. 40 out of town. The area was once home to many of Baltimore’s factories and foundries. Although most are now closed, Goetze’s Candy Company –maker of Cow Tales and caramel creams — still churns out sweet treats right down the street.

“I have a great team of agents, support staff, and supervisors in the Madison Street Field Office,” says Field Supervisor II Cheryl Peguese, who also supervises the Hargrove office in South Baltimore. We’ll meet the Hargrove team in a future office profile.
