Among other things, the Maryland Office of Legislative Audits found:
- 100 officers each recorded more than 1,000 hours of overtime in 2022, with several officers racking up six figures in overtime pay.
- In violation of departmental policy, 70% of overtime requests were approved after, not before, overtime was performed.
- BPD did not have properly executed agreements with groups like the Horseshoe Casino and the Maryland Stadium Authority, which employs BPD officers as security at Ravens and Orioles games, leaving overtime payments largely undocumented.
