Baltimore voters can expect to see local control of police on the ballot again in 2024

December 20, 2023

Baltimore voters will be asked once again to weigh in on local control of the Baltimore Police Department. The Baltimore City Council approved a proposed charter amendment Monday that would create a structure for the city’s police department within the city charter in hopes of finalizing the transition from state to local control. The amendment, which still requires the approval of Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott, would appear on ballots in November. Scott, a Democrat, has said he supports the measure.
