The contract of Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis, who was replaced by Mayor Catherine Pugh on Friday, provides a possible $150,000 severance package.
Pugh announced her decision to replace Davis on Friday, after about two years of his five-year term. In October 2015, the city’s Board of Estimates provided Davis a $200,000 annual contract with the severance pay.
The contract allows Davis to receive 75 percent of one-year's salary — at least $150,000 — if he is fired without cause. If Davis were to be fired for cause, he would receive no severance payment.
