Problem


From what has been presented to the public regarding the career of Chief Joel Fitzgerald, it is apparent that he is not qualified to hold the position as the top commander for the Baltimore City Police Department. We the citizens of this city deserve to have someone in this position with a current crime suppression plan for a city as violent as Baltimore.  Over the past years, the BCPD has been plagued with a decrease in hiring recruits, low morale within the department, police brutality complaints, overtime fraud, and public mistrust. And yet Mayor Pugh nominated someone who had the same challenges and was unsuccessful at correcting those concerns in the department in which he lead previously. Baltimore is at it's worst in terms of crime (drugs, murders, and guns) and we need the most qualified candidate to turn this city around.

In addition to the fact that he does not have enough experience or a crime suppression plan, he is also not willing to release the results of a background investigation that WE the citizens of Baltimore financed. We as taxpayers can NOT afford to pay for another scandal several months later once his secrets are revealed.

Solution
Signing this petition is a sign of solidarity that we the citizens are DEMANDING the most experienced and pro-active top commander for the Baltimore City Police Department and it is NOT Chief Joel Fitzgerald.
