The ACLU of Maryland urges a favorable report on HB 1649, which would require local law enforcement agencies to report annually to the Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention (GOCCP) on the total dollar amount for the previous calendar year paid to plaintiffs and complainants to settle claims and pay judgments for police misconduct and civil rights actions. GOCCAP must in turn publish a report with this data.
