A Baltimore State’s Attorney’s Office list of more than 300 Baltimore police officers with credibility issues, many of whom continue to be called to testify in court, has been made public for the first time after a court ordered its release last fall.
…The identities of the 305 officers are now public after Baltimore Action Legal Team, a community nonprofit known as BALT working to make the legal system more accessible to the public, won a lengthy court battle to force the state’s attorney’s office to release its list.
“There is no accountability without transparency,” said Iman Freeman, executive director of BALT, which provided the list to The Baltimore Sun. “This request for this list is just one part, just one tactic in our entire campaign.”
