State Senator Jim Brochin 2018

State Sen. Jim Brochin, a Baltimore County Democrat, said he’s pushing for legislation that will force off-duty officers in Baltimore County to wear body cameras.

When an officer is off-duty working security at a bar or grocery store, they’re still in uniform, Brochin told C4 Tuesday. If the public can’t see a difference between an officer on duty or moonlighting, the same oversight should be in place.

“The public doesn’t know the difference,” said Brochin, also a candidate for county executive. “They wear they’re uniform, they’re Baltimore County police officers.”
