Each county has developed civilian-led oversight structures required under Maryland’s far-reaching 2021 police reform legislation. This week, two new elements were added to the mix – each of which may pose difficulties for its execution.

The state’s Judicial Ethics Commission ruled that semi-retired “Senior Judges,” presumed by many counties as the most likely people to fulfill a required role as trial board chairs, may not serve in this way for fear of eclipsing their impartiality for continued judicial service. Further, the state’s Training Commission issued its vision of required training for members of each local Administrative Charging Committee, laying out a program consuming five full days.
