Senate Committee Considering Bill to Honor Slain Baltimore Police Officer Keona Holley

March 16, 2022

Members of the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee heard testimony about a measure named to honor slain Baltimore Police Officer Keona Holley on Tuesday. The Officer Keona Holley Public Safety Act, or Senate Bill 652, would make people ineligible for parole if they are convicted of conspiring to, attempting to or committing the murder of a police officer because of their role in law enforcement. “This was not a shooting that was done in the course of a crime to which Officer Holley had responded,” said Sen. Robert G. Cassilly (R-Harford), the bill’s sponsor.
