ANNAPOLIS, MD (AP) – A package of police reform measures has cleared the Maryland General Assembly. The Maryland Senate gave final passage Wednesday to a bill repealing police job protections long cited as a barricade to accountability. Lawmakers also approved a new statewide use-of-force policy, limits on no-knock warrants, and an expansion of public access to records in police disciplinary cases. Police would be required to use body cameras statewide by 2026. One measure would create a unit in the attorney general’s office to investigate police-involved deaths and prohibit law enforcement from buying surplus military equipment. The measures now go to Gov. Larry Hogan.
