Anne Arundel County is looking outside its own police department to find new lieutenants because local, qualified officers won’t apply for the positions, according to the International Brotherhood of Police Officers (IBPO). National union President David J. Holway declared the “open job posting” a sign that the Anne Arundel County police department’s leadership has failed. “Current Anne Arundel officers don’t want the promotion because they know it will bring them a step closer to the failed leadership that has broken their department,” Holway said. “It’s shameful that the county’s leaders have to advertise elsewhere to bring in superior officers who don’t know the extent of the dysfunction and leadership failure.” O’Brien Atkinson, the …

Davitt announced on Friday that an Anne Arundel County grand jury handed down a nine-page indictment alleging that Leopold stole and hid campaign signs from a political opponent and used county police officers to drive him to sexual dalliances in public parking lots in 2010. The indictment includes four counts of misconduct and another of fraud, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in jail.
