Maryland House Approves Armed Police Force For Johns Hopkins University

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — The House of Delegates passed the Johns Hopkins Police bill aimed at arming a police force for the private Johns Hopkins University.

The bill doesn't go to the Governor just yet.

It first needs to go to a conference committee before it reaches the governor's desk.

The bill puts armed officers on patrol around Johns Hopkins neighborhoods and has divided the Baltimore City Delegation and caused disputes between groups in and around the campus and hospital.
