The Baltimore Board of Estimates has approved $21 million dollars to cover police overtime costs.  The money comes from surplus tax revenue and Mayor Catherine Pugh says it's needed because the Police Department is about 700 officers short.

The Board of Estimates approved the settlement to be paid to a man who was wrongfully convicted of murder and spent 20 years in prison.  The settlement for James Owens is the largest from the city in an alleged police misconduct case.
