The Maryland Public Information Act (MPIA) needs to be amended so that it no longer fundamentally blocks transparency and accountability for communities concerned about police abuse and misconduct.
The public has a right to know that misconduct is being adequately investigated by the police department. Transparency is a prerequisite to community trust—The lack of transparency undermines the public’s trust in law enforcement at a time when law enforcement should be working towards mending and improving its relationship with the communities they are sworn to protect.
Demand greater transparency in police misconduct investigations!
