BALTIMORE — Twenty-five corrections officers have been indicted on 236 counts that includes use of excessive force, Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced Tuesday.

“All 25 of these correctional officers have allegedly abused their power and abused our trust,” Mosby said.

Prosecutes said the investigation started as a tip in 2018 about a single incident involving unnecessary force at a Baltimore Correctional Facility.

Mosby said the officers, who are part of the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services’ Baltimore Central Regional Tactical Unit, are accused of acts of violence, intimidation and use of excessive force.
