In Maryland, the new interim police chief in Prince George's County is putting his mark on the department. Mark Magaw enters the position just weeks after the latest controversy involving the county police.
Three officers were arrested in a federal investigation last month for their part in an alleged ring that distributed and sold untaxed cigarettes and alcohol from a College Park liquor store. The officers were working off-duty at the time, and Magaw now wants to regulate such work through an office of secondary employment within the police department.
"The main focus of that is to vette out the different businesses that want officers to work there, to make sure that they are legitimate businesses, that they uphold the same values as this community and this police department," he says.
Magaw replaces former Chief Roberto Hylton, who was not retained by new County Executive Rushern Baker over what Baker called "philosophical" differences.
Baker says he will conduct a nationwide search to find a permanent replacement for Hylton.
