De Sousa Considering Whether to Bring Back Plainclothes Drug, Gun Units in Baltimore

Acting Baltimore Police Commissioner Darryl De Sousa is considering putting plainclothes officers back onto the streets to search for guns and drugs, he said.

“I am evaluating to see what best practices tell us, what the research tells us, on plainclothes, and if it has an effect on reducing crime,” he said in an interview with The Baltimore Sun.
