Baltimore Pays $2.5M to Settle Police Corruption Allegations

BALTIMORE (AP) – Baltimore officials are set to approve nearly $2.5 million in payments to resolve claims that officers in a rogue police unit brutalized, robbed and falsely arrested residents.

The Baltimore Sun reports that the city’s Board of Estimates is scheduled Wednesday to approve payments to 11 people in a second round of settlements related to the police department’s corruption-plagued Gun Trace Task Force. The latest round of payments would raise the total to $2.7 million for 21 people who sued.

“It’s high time that they atone for the city’s behavior,” said Baltimore attorney Latoya Francis-Williams, who represents a man set to receive a $500,000 settlement.
