Concerns Raised About New Baltimore Police Commander

BALTIMORE (WBFF) – There are serious questions concerning one of the new commanders in Baltimore police commissioner designate Darryl De Sousa’s staff.

FOX45 has obtained a memo sent to De Sousa highlighting the officer’s background including two sustained complaints against him.

Acting police commissioner De Sousa just released his list of appointees Thursday.

The concerns surround one of the top commanders on that list and the memo shows De Sousa was made aware of them almost two weeks ago.

Thomas Cassella is at the top of De Sousa’s leadership as deputy police commissioner over the operations bureau.
