Three Maryland Public Safety Officials Leave Jobs Following Misconduct Investigation

October 26th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

The Baltimore Sun reports three high-level officials no longer work in the department that runs the state prison system after being investigated for alleged misconduct.

A spokesman for the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services confirmed Wednesday that the three officials in the office of Secretary Stephen T. Moyer were removed from the state payroll Tuesday.

Gerard Shields, the spokesman, said that under state personnel law he could not divulge the reason for their separation, nor say whether they resigned or were fired. However, he said their departures were not related to the indictments this month of 80 people in connection with an alleged smuggling ring at the Eastern Correctional Institute in Somerset County.
