Some city officials may be having second thoughts about the DOJ investigation even though it was requested by Mayor Rawlings-Blake and embraced by Police Commissioner Kevin Davis. Mr. Davis described the investigation as an opportunity to improve the BPD based on his experience in the Prince George's County Department, which entered into a consent decree in 2004 after a DOJ investigation. Melvin High, a former chief of that department, described the DOJ investigation into his department as "a turning point in the culture of the Police Department in Prince George's County" and "one of the best things to happen in the history" of the department. Mr. Davis informed The Sun that he did not fear the DOJ investigation into the BPD and indeed welcomes it. If so, a team of lawyers from WilmerHale is a curious welcoming committee.
