Mayor Pugh's 'Squeegee Corps' car wash service draws police commissioner

Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis stopped by City Hall to have his car washed at the “Squeegee Corps” full service car wash on Friday.

Mayor Catherine Pugh set up the service in June to help employ Baltimore’s youth. Prices range from $5 to $15.

Fourteen-year-old Daquan Stewart, a Bluford Drew Jemison STEM Academy student, was among several washing the police commissioner’s car.

“It’s nice we can do it, but it’s a little bit of pressure,” Stewart said.

Looking on was police spokesman T.J. Smith, who said his first job at 10 years old was as a car washer. He said he called his business “Sparkle and Clean.”
