BALTIMORE — Baltimore's City Council passed a bill to create a police accountability board during their meeting, Monday night.
The bill passed with several amendments, including one that will allow for former officers to serve on the board.
Each jurisdiction in Maryland is required to have a police accountability board by Friday, July 1. That's mandated by a law that passed in the state's General Assembly last year.
The bill now goes to the desk of Mayor Brandon Scott for his signature.
