Baltimore prosecutor questions credibility of 305 officers

BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby says she’s concerned about the integrity and credibility of about 305 city police officers, most of whom the department stands by.

News outlets report Mosby on Tuesday presented a list of the officers to a state policing commission formed to identify department issues that fostered a corrupt police unit. She says the integrity concerns essentially mean those officers won’t be able to testify in court.

The deputy commissioner of the department’s bureau that oversees misconduct investigations told the commission that most of the listed officers don’t have credibility issues. Brian Nadeau said the list mostly serves as a prosecutorial tool but agreed 22 of the listed officers shouldn’t be called to testify. Only two of those 22 officers remain at the department.
