Baltimore County executive largely mum on reason for police chief departure: ‘Leaders come and go’

November 18, 2022

Baltimore County’s executive declined Thursday to share any reasons behind his police chief’s departure from the agency, a day after his team announced she and four other directors would leave county government in coming weeks. Democratic County Executive Johnny Olszewski Jr., who won reelection earlier this month, didn’t directly answer questions from reporters about whether he’d asked police Chief Melissa Hyatt to leave, whether she had any say in the decision or about any factors that changed since he stood behind her six months ago during a no-confidence vote by the police union representing county officers.
