Staffing down, overtime up in Baltimore

This article reports that Baltimore PD is on track to exceed its $17 million overtime budget by $30 million in 2017. The number of sworn officers has dropped by 500 since 2012 with another 300 on light duty, medical leave, or suspension. The patrol schedule is based on 1,250 officers but current staffing is less than 800 “healthy bodies.”
