Baltimore police racked up overtime by working long hours with little oversight in past 2 years, records show

The department’s tracking data obtained by The Sun contains inconsistencies and anomalies. For instance, police say officers sometimes saved up multiple weeks of overtime slips and submitted them at once, such as in July 2017, when officer Brian Rice, who was one of the six officers charged and later cleared in the 2015 arrest and death of Freddie Gray from injuries suffered while in police custody, was paid for 192 overtime hours. Police spokesman Matt Jablow said that figure represented payment for previous overtime.
