Am I Being Interrogated?

The Law Enforcement Officers' Bill of Rights ("LEOBR") affords certain protections to officers who find themselves the subject of administrative disciplinary proceedings. While the language of the statute is clear as pertains to what rights an officer retains throughout the disciplinary process, it is entirely unclear with respect to when those rights are triggered. Specifically, the statute states that the LEOBR is implicated in any situation where an officer could face disciplinary action-a simple enough proposition-yet a recent unreported opinion by the Maryland Court of Special Appeals significantly complicates the application of the black letter law.
