Mayor Brandon Scott has unveiled a city budget plan for the fiscal year 2023 that increases the police budget by nearly $5 million. The budget will cover the cost of 35 civilian investigators that will fill some of the police department’s vacant positions. These civilian investigators will conduct anti-violence initiatives, which would free up police officers so that there are more of them patrolling Baltimore’s various communities. They would assist with investigations, track down leads, and search databases for information related to crimes.
