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.
