TOWSON, MD—A local police union is seeking to oust the chief of police.

On Monday evening, the Baltimore County Fraternal Order of Police met in Timonium and voted to seek the removal of Chief Melissa Hyatt.

In a letter to Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski, the FOP cites a “loss of faith and confidence in Melissa Hyatt as the Chief of the Baltimore County Police Department.”

The FOP says it was a very difficult decision for the membership, but the motion was unanimous.

“Morale has never been lower,” FOP officials said in a tweet on Monday night.
