Administrative Charging Committee

The Anne Arundel County Administrative Charging Committee (ACC) makes disciplinary determinations related to citizen-involved complaints against officers employed with the county’s five local law enforcement agencies. The ACC’s determination process begins when a law enforcement agency transfers an investigative file on a complaint to the committee members.

The ACC shall review the findings of law enforcement agencies’ investigations of external complaints and determine if the officer(s) involved shall be or not be administratively charged in the matter. 
  • If charged, the ACC shall recommend the appropriate discipline in accordance and conjunction with the agency’s disciplinary matrix and the Md. Annotated Code Public Safety Section 3-105. 
  • If not charged, the ACC must determine if the allegations are unfounded or if the officer is exonerated. 
  • The ACC shall, within 30 day’s completion of the investigating unit’s review, issue a written opinion that details its findings, determinations, and recommendations. 
  • The ACC shall meet once per month, or as needed.
