An arbitrator has ruled that the police’s All Hands on Deck Policy is a violation of DC Law and the Police Union Contract, and ordered that the MPD stop using the strategy until they can work out the issues at hand. The arbitrator’s ruling, if it stands, would drastically affect the ability of the MPD to call up officers for extra duty without properly bargaining with the FOP Union. The MPD will also have to pay back overtime due the officers who worked extra shifts during AHOD.
Chief Lanier will likely appeal the ruling, but is already saying that AHOD will continue.
