The Baltimore Sun

An article in the Anne Arundel County section Wednesday incorrectly identified the author of an ethics opinion on police officers holding second jobs. Members of the county ethics commission wrote it.

The article also erroneously said that a proposed amendment to a new bill on the issue would allow moonlighting officers to check identifications or act as bouncers at bars. Under the bill introduced by County Council Chairman Ron Dillon Jr., police officers could moonlight at restaurants and bingo parlors with liquor licenses to deter crime or arrest customers for illegal behavior. The amendment would have allowed officers to be stationed outside bars, too.

The Sun regrets the errors.
