BALTIMORE — Baltimore's new budget proposal would add more money to the police department.

The proposal includes a nearly $5 million increase. The police department says they are eliminating 30 vacant positions and will add 35 civilian positions to help detectives investigate crimes.

The $3.3 billion budget proposal includes no new taxes or fees for doing business in the city.

The budget will be considered by the city's board of estimates in the coming weeks.
