Harrison said Murphy is still committed to the work he was brought to Baltimore to do.

"He was back at work on Monday morning ready to do the job he was hired to do, and I think they are in a good place," Harrison said. "Our investigators are still working on it, they are in a good place, and he is still excited to be on this team here in Baltimore."

Murphy is in charge of Consent Decree Compliance for the Department and will be front and center on Thursday when they have their next public hearing on the consent decree in federal court.
