The Maryland State FOP is opposed to HB624 which is cross filed with SB593. Please take a few minutes to watch (1:43) a representative from the Maryland Chief’s and Sheriffs Association, State Attorney’s from across the state along with our member, Det. Al Barton speak (2:10) representing members of the FOP.
Several other organizations, ACLU and Baltimore City State’s attorney are in favor of this legislation and speak first.
Juvenile violent crime is a huge problem in this state and this bill would be counter productive in reducing that crime.
Please email the members of the House Judiciary Committee and urge them to vote against HB624.
