BALTIMORE (AP) — Maryland’s Attorney General Brian Frosh is hiring a former U.S. Department of Justice attorney to lead a new unit tasked with investigating killings by police.

Dana Mulhauser worked in the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division for 12 years, prosecuting police misconduct, hate crimes and human trafficking cases throughout the country. Since 2019, Mulhauser served as the founding chief of a unit in the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office that reviews police shootings and prosecutes excessive force and police misconduct cases.

The new unit is charged with investigating all alleged or potential police-involved deaths of civilians, and providing a report containing detailed findings to the state’s attorney of the county that has jurisdiction.
