Baltimore Mayor Pugh now says her search for the city’s next police commissioner may stretch into next month. Many say the public should have bigger role in choosing the next commissioner, who would be the fourth to lead the BPD this year.

Journalist and former City Paper editor Brandon Soderberg joins us to talk about the search, and the effect it’s having on policing in Baltimore, at the same time the pace of murders is accelerating.
