Baltimore Police commissioner pick Michael Harrison will begin meeting with city residents next week, the mayor’s office said Monday.
Harrison, who retired as the New Orleans Police superintendent last month, will begin serving as Baltimore’s acting police commissioner next Monday. Mayor Catherine Pugh is expected to formally submit his nomination to the Executive Appointments Committee of the Baltimore City Council. The committee will hold a March 4 hearing.
Harrison recently visited Baltimore to search for a home, and he sat down with some residents and others stakeholders. During the visit, Harrison met with department commanders and City Council President Jack Young, as well as community organizers. Harrison also met with U.S. District Judge James K. Bredar, who is overseeing the police consent decree.
The upcoming public meetings with residents will be from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in each of the city’s nine police districts. Here’s the full schedule:
