BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore City Council will host two town hall meetings next week to discuss a bill that would return local control over the department to the city, Baltimore City Council President Nick Mosby said Tuesday.
Right now, the BPD is technically a state agency, with various degrees of state oversight. Local control would mean giving the city authority over BPD policy initiatives and oversight.
The Baltimore City Council will host a hearing on Wednesday, followed by town halls on December 4, and December 7. The public is encouraged to participate in the town halls.
The committee will hold a vote on the policy on December 12.
