In Prince George's County, Md., a settlement has been reached in the case brought against the county's police department by the mayor of Berwyn Heights.
Mayor Cheye Calvo says the settlement in the case, involving a mistaken raid on his home back in 2008, includes meaningful reform in county law enforcement and practices which he claim led to the accident.
Police raided the mayor's home in 2008, taking the mayor and his mother–in-law into custody, and shooting and killing his two dogs after a parcel of drugs was mistakenly delivered to his doorstep.
The agreement with the county also includes undisclosed monetary compensation, which Calvo says may be disclosed in the future.
Calvo added that the agreement was reached with the cooperation of County Executive Rushern Baker and would not have been possible under the previous administration of Jack Johnson.
