Once again, most of Baltimore’s highest paid employees are police officers.
Overtime expenses in the 2018 fiscal year, which ended June 30, meant that 40 of the 50 highest-paid city employees work for the Baltimore Police Department — including seven of the top 10.
Sgt. William Harris Jr. was the highest-paid city employee last year, earning $250,000, well above his base salary of $100,000. Harris Jr. was also the highest-paid city employee of fiscal year 2017.
He was followed in the most recent fiscal year by Sgt. Ethan R. Newberg, who earned $243,000 on a base salary of $100,000, and State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, who has a salary of about $239,000.
