The Maryland State Police is apologizing for an email that some have criticized as insensitive.
The email offered overtime pay to officers willing to work additional shifts at a Baltimore church, following the stabbing death last month of a 69-year-old church volunteer.
The subject line of the mail read, “Southern Baptist Church Overtime Easy Money.”
Maryland State Police said that part of the email was poorly worded — and does not reflect the core values of the agency.
A 62-year-old man has been arrested and charged with murder in the death of the volunteer, Evelyn Player — who was found stabbed to death in the church.
