New Police Union Organized

When the Baltimore Fraternal Order of Police suspended Lieutenant Frederick Roussey as its president it thought it had heard the last of him. It would appear they were wrong.

An attempt to start a statewide union for police and correctional officers is being met with “sabotage” by the Baltimore police union, according to the president of the new Police Benevolent Association of Maryland.

Former Baltimore City Fraternal Order of Police President Lt. Frederick Roussey this month created the new union, which he said will provide “better services” than the FOP.

Good luck to Lieutenant Roussey. Given the rules for organizing public sector employees he has an uphill battle. When one considers that the FOP may legally expel members who join Lieutenant Roussey’s organization it is hard to see how he succeeds.
