Marilyn Mosby To Publicly Post ‘Use Of Force’ Investigations Online
Under a new policy adopted by Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, her office will publicly post “use of force” investigation case summaries online any time a Baltimore police officer is suspected of criminally assaulting or killing a person in Baltimore City.
“At the start of my administration, I promised to make the Office of the State’s Attorney for Baltimore City a more open, accessible, and transparent public safety agency,” said State’s Attorney Mosby. “Over the past two years, we have worked toward that goal, seeking out national best practices with the citizens and communities of Baltimore City at the forefront of our minds. Today, we are delivering on that promise in a major way by posting information about individual ‘use of force’ investigations online.”
According to the State’s Attorney’s Office (SAO), the policy comes out of recommendations from the Association of Prosecuting Attorneys’ (APA) “Use of Force Project.”
