Baltimore’s Police Union: City Police Department Has No Long Term Plan to Fight Crime.

BALTIMORE (WJZ)– The president of Baltimore’s police union says the City police department has no long term plan to fight crime.

Fraternal Order of Police Union President Lt. Gene Ryan says city officers are working too much overtime and are exhausted.

Something he says puts police and citizens in danger.

The criticism comes as the City’s homicide total is on the rise.

As Baltimore enters the summer, a season known for spikes in violent crime, the homicide total is already climbing fast with 161 homicides in the first six months of 2017.
