Baltimore City Council approves first major changes to city’s police district map in more than 60 years

October 4, 2022

For the first time in more than 60 years, Baltimore’s police district map will be overhauled following approval from Baltimore City Council Monday. City Council members voted 12 to 3 in favor of the proposal, which will shrink the size of the city’s sprawling Northeastern District, the city’s largest by population and police workload. The redistricting process, which began last year, is required under state legislation passed in 2019 that directs Baltimore Police to reevaluate the boundaries after each decennial U.S. census. The current boundaries for the department’s nine districts have remained roughly the same for decades, despite major shifts in population and crime trends.
