Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott’s proposed budget would increase police spending, add civilian investigators

April 12, 2022

Baltimore’s police budget would increase by $5 million under a proposal from Mayor Brandon Scott unveiled Monday that calls for using 35 civilian investigators for police work and adding other staff to assist with an anti-violence initiative. The $4 billion proposed spending plan, a small decrease in overall spending over the previous year, would hold the line on taxes despite increases to police spending and a $65 million increase in education spending mandated by the state. About $742 million would be spent on capital projects in addition to $3.2 billion in general fund spending.
