Baltimore City is looking for people who want to help settle cases of police misconduct.

Acting Mayor Jack Young announced that Baltimore residents can now apply to serve on police misconduct trial boards. The panels used to only include three police officers. Starting in the fiscal year 2020, it will be made up of five people, two civilians and three officers who will all have equal voting power.

In order to apply, you must be at least 21 years old, a Baltimore city resident, and not have any felony convictions or any serious misdemeanors within the last 10 years. You also cannot be a former member of Baltimore’s Civilian Review Board or a sworn Baltimore Police officer.
