Baltimore seeks public input in redrawing of police districts

May 9, 2022

Baltimore officials are seeking public feedback as they look to redraw longstanding police district lines for the first time in more than 50 years. The current boundaries of the city’s nine police districts were set in 1959, Mayor Brandon M. Scott (D) said at a Friday news conference. He called the police precinct redistricting “long overdue.” Baltimore had a population of 585,708 at the 2020 decennial census, according to the United States Census Bureau. In 1960, that figure was 939,024. While the city’s population has seen an overall decline since then, some neighborhoods have grown in recent years.
