About Baltimore City Police Department

The Baltimore City Police Department (BPD) is the 8th largest municipal police force in the United States, staffed with nearly 3,100 civilian and sworn personnel. The BPD’s jurisdiction is the largest city in Maryland, with a population of 614,000 people. The BPD is headquartered on 601 East Fayette Street, Baltimore Maryland.

According to Maryland Judiciary Case Search, Baltimore City Police, entered with that exact spelling, has been sued, as a defendant in Maryland Circuit Courts, 163 times since September 2012.

  • 115 Other Tort

  • 2 Contract
  • 1 Forfeiture
  • 10 General Equity
  • 1 Habeas Corpus
  • 14 Motor Tort
  • 18 Other Civil
  • 1 OV

Majority of these cases, 161 out of 163, where held at the Baltimore City Circuit Court, this makes sense as this police station looks after Baltimore City. The remaining Circuit Courts that had lawsuits against the BPD, where in Washington County and Baltimore County with 1 case each. Out of these 163 cases, 22 are closed and active, 129 are closed and inactive, 9 are open and active, 2 are open and inactive, and 1 has been reopened.

 

Baltimore City Police Department in the news

Recently in September 2019, eight members of the Baltimore City Police Gun Trace Force, have been arrested and are serving federal prison sentences. These eight police officers where charged with planting evidence on people, racketeering, and other charges. Due to these eight former police officers, 800 convictions have been tainted due to their actions, says the Baltimore City State Attorney’s Office. Even though no decisions have been made yet, it is said that if hundreds of lawsuits where to be filed, it could result in millions, if not billions of dollars that would have to be paid out in settlements.
