Statement on Arrest of BPD Sergeant

BALTIMORE, MD (July 10, 2020) — Baltimore City Council President Brandon M. Scott released a statement on reports that a Baltimore Police Department Sergeant assigned to the homicide unit was arrested last evening:

“The alleged behavior outlined in this incident is exactly what erodes trust in the Baltimore Police Department, and highlights exactly why we must be fully committed to systemic reform. The type of abuse of power reported also undermines our police department's ability to solve homicides in a city that continues to be plagued with violence. I’m thankful to Baltimore County for their response and to the Commissioner for taking swift action. I look forward to the results of the criminal and internal investigations so that all involved can be held fully accountable.”
