OFFICER KEONA HOLLEY REMOVED FROM LIFE SUPPORT
Police Commissioner Harrison provides an update on Officer Holley’s condition
Baltimore, MD (December 23, 2021) – It is with heavy hearts that Commissioner Michael Harrison and the Baltimore Police Department announce that Officer Keona Holley has been removed from life support.
Her health has been deteriorating over the last couple of days and her family, in consultation with her doctors, has had to make the most difficult decision. Since Officer Holley’s shooting, Dr. Thomas Scalea and the medical staff at the Shock Trauma Center at the University of Maryland Medical Center have provided her with the best medical care in the world. The Baltimore Police Department thanks them for all of their efforts.
However, it was Officer Holley’s valiant fight for her life, which has brought her this far. Her strength, courage, and resilience are an inspiration to us all.
“Our prayers are with Officer Holley’s family and loved ones, co-workers, and the entire community. I thank her and the entire BPD community for their commitment, service, and sacrifice. We mourn Officer Holley’s death together and we will heal together,” said Commissioner Harrison.
Due to the tragic and traumatic events experienced by the BPD community over the last couple of weeks, the department is extending the offer of any support and assistance officers may need. Free and confidential counseling services are available for all BPD employees.
The BPD also continues to support Officer Holley’s family – as we do for all members of the force. The Signal 13 foundation is providing assistance to the family in their time of need. Those who wish to provide financial support to Officer Holley’s family, may do so through the Signal 13 website at signal13foundation.org and click on the “Donate” button.
designate your support for Officer Holley’s family, by writing “In support of Officer Holley” in the notes box or in the memo field of a written check. The Signal 13 Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)3 established to support Baltimore Police and their families in times of need. Signal 13 provides financial hardship grants and college scholarships for the children of police personnel. All donations are tax-deductible. Any donations received in the name of Officer Keona Holley will be used to support her family. There will, of course, be ways that we can ensure that Officer Holley’s spirit and legacy live on in this Department and this City. Those conversations will be had with her family and colleagues after we get through this somber and difficult period. However, the best way to honor Officer Holley is to continue her mission of making Baltimore a safer place for everyone.

Amy Oakes: “Governor Hogan needs to step up and take control of the city. Scott is in way over his head. Absolutely devastating. Prayers for this officer and her family“
Baltimore, MD (December 16, 2021) — On December 16, 2021, at approximately 1:35 a.m., Southern District officers received a report of a vehicle crash in the 4400 block of Pennington Avenue and learned that a patrol vehicle had crashed and that the driver of the vehicle was an officer assigned to the Southern District.
That patrol officer appeared to be suffering from life-threatening gunshot wounds. Officers began to render aid and worked to get the officer to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma as quickly as possible.
The officer remains at Shock Trauma and is listed in guarded condition.
“This was a cowardly, brazen act to walk up and open fire on a police officer who was doing what we asked that officer to do – to go out to protect and serve,” said Commissioner Michael Harrison. “Our prayers are with the officer’s family. We are determined to find those responsible for this heinous crime and will not rest until we do.” “My heartfelt prayers go out to the officer’s family and fellow officers who selflessly risk their lives to safeguard our neighborhoods and build a better Baltimore,” said Mayor Brandon Scott. “Whoever committed this heinous act is a coward who must be brought to justice for our officer, the officer’s family, and our city. I have no doubt that our detectives will find those responsible, but we need anyone who has information to come forward and share it with us now. No family should be dealing with this pain, especially during the holidays. As a city, we owe it to our officer to quickly bring those responsible to justice.”
Anyone with information is urged to contact detectives at 410-396-2100 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7Lockup.
MOSBY FAILING TO JAIL GUN FELONS MAKING BALTIMORE A KILLING FIELD
Governor Hogan Statement on the Introduction of Emergency Crime Legislation
ANNAPOLIS, MD—Governor Larry Hogan on Dec. 6, 2021, issued the following statement following the introduction of the “Violent Firearms Offender Act” and “Judicial Transparency Act” as emergency legislation during the special session of the Maryland General Assembly:
“People are being shot nearly every single day in Baltimore City, and we have an obligation to do something about it right now.
“Today, our administration has introduced emergency legislation to require tougher sentencing for violent offenders, specifically those who continue to commit violent felonies with guns, and to bring greater transparency to the sentences handed down by judges for all violent crimes.
“Passing these desperately-needed reforms has been a multi-year effort by our administration. An overwhelming majority of Baltimore City residents, and all Marylanders, strongly support these bills. We have all waited long enough. City leaders, the city delegation, and all members of the General Assembly must finally work with us to make our neighborhoods safer and to get these violent shooters off the streets.”
