October 4, 2022

Three voters have filed a lawsuit to block the Baltimore Police Department from executing an agreement with the Johns Hopkins University that’s necessary for the research institution to develop a private, armed police force that would have the power to patrol certain areas and make arrests for some crimes. Donald Gresham, Joan Floyd and Kushan Ratnayake filed the complaint seeking injunctive relief on Sept. 23 in Baltimore Circuit Court. They live near where the proposed Johns Hopkins Police Department would have jurisdiction.
