Disciplinary Hearing Boards
The MDTA Police conducts disciplinary hearing boards in accordance with the Maryland Law Enforcement Officer's Bill of Rights (LEOBR). Pursuant to the LEOBR, if the investigation or interrogation of a law enforcement officer results in a recommendation of demotion, dismissal, transfer, loss of pay, reassignment, or similar action that is considered punitive, the law enforcement officer is entitled to a hearing on the issues by a hearing board before the law enforcement agency takes that action. A law enforcement officer who has been convicted of a felony is not entitled to a hearing under this section.
