Today, Baltimore City State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby and Prince George's County State's Attorney Aisha Braveboy published their offices' 'Do Not Call' lists.

 

The Do Not Call list includes former and current police officers who have engaged in conduct that renders their potential testimony unreliable or non-credible.

 

The State's Attorney's Offices will not call officers on the Do Not Call list as witnesses.  

 

State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby said, 

 "While the overwhelming majority of Baltimore Police Department officers are hardworking, dedicated and trustworthy public servants who decidedly risk their lives every day doing what most won't; when a police officer is convicted of a crime and/or their credibility and integrity is compromised, it stifles our ability, as prosecutors, to do our jobs and adequately pursue justice on behalf of the communities that we serve,"

 

Mosby said the release of the list shows a commitment to police reform and accountability.
