Review of (Maryland) state police is ordered
Ex-attorney general named to head inquiry

By Laura Smitherman | Sun reporter

August 1, 2008

Gov. Martin O'Malley announced yesterday that former Maryland Attorney General Stephen H. Sachs will head an independent review of state police efforts to infiltrate and monitor activist groups opposed to the death penalty and the Iraq war.

The announcement comes days after lawmakers in Annapolis and on Capitol Hill called for hearings orinquiries into the matter. O'Malley said he took the step to get a "fresh view" of the state police activities that took place during the previous administration and to give the public assurance that the surveillance has been thoroughly investigated.

He also said the review would help in the development of new guidelines and protocols "to safeguard against this waste of resources ever happening again."
