2021

On April 10, 2021, Maryland approved three measures:

  • repealing their 1974 Law Enforcement Officers Bill of Rights which set a due process procedure for investigating police misconduct. New procedures will give civilians a role in the police disciplinary process.[1]
  • creating a new statewide use-of-force policy and mandating use of body cameras statewide by July 2025.[1]
  • expanding public access to records in police disciplinary cases and limiting the use of no-knock warrants.[1]

On May 8, 2021, Maryland banned state and local law enforcement agencies from acquiring certain military equipment from federal programs,[2]
