Gun Trace Task Force (GTTF) Settlement Tracker
Per the Baltimore City Charter and the policies approved by the Board of Estimates, legal settlements are subject to Board approval. Recommendations to settle claims against the City are based on reviews by the Law Department's Settlement Committee if there is potential for an adverse jury verdict.
The GTTF Tracker can be used to search for individual lawsuits and case numbers, settlement amounts, and officers that have been named in GTTF settlements. It also highlights settlement costs and case count for each officer. Any future settlement agreements approved by the Board of Estimates will also be included in the Tracker.
Unless the defendant has been found guilty, all individuals named in this tool are presumed innocent. Furthermore, by settling their claim, the plaintiff has agreed to dismiss all claims against the former GTTF Officers, the Baltimore Police Department, and the City of Baltimore.
The Tracker serves to memorialize the devastating impact of the Gun Trace Task Force on our City.
