Welcome to the Police Accountability Board's page.  


In the wake of incidents across the country of misconduct and criminal acts involving police officers, particularly those that resulted in serious injury or death of a citizen, the Maryland General Assembly enacted substantial legislation focused on police reform during the 2021 legislative session.

House Bill 670, the Maryland Police Accountability Act of 2021 – Police Discipline and Law Enforcement Programs and Procedures, effective July 1, 2022, requires that each county governing body establish a Police Accountability Board. After a robust public process, Frederick County adopted its Police Accountability Board and Administrative Charging Committee legislation on April 26, 2022.
