After the latest testimonies in the corruption case implicating detectives in the Gun Trace Task Force, Commissioner-Designate Daryl DeSousa has formed a Corruption Investigation Unit that will be led by a Lieutenant Colonel.
According to officials, the members of this new unit are the same investigators that have worked alongside FBI Corruption Task Force since the start of the investigation.
Baltimore Police officials also added that the allegations stated during the trial are disturbing, unacceptable, and criminal.
"We are working diligently to investigate and hold those who tarnished the badge and violated public trust accountable for their actions. The citizens deserve better and the hardworking honorable men and women of this agency deserve better."
The new unit is said to just focus on the actions of the Gun Trace Task Force.
