In fact, he doesn't know how that particular myth got started and seems to think you have to be an idiot to believe such blarney."

Several months ago, Baltimore Inspector General Robert H. Pearre Jr. quietly decided to dedicate an agent solely to investigating workers' compensation and disability fraud within Baltimore's police and fire departments — and this week investigators announced charges against a former city officer accused of bilking taxpayers out of more than $30,000. It's an effort Pearre plans to continue in future months, city officials said. Pearre has negotiated a deal with the police and fire departments to fund a full-time position in his office digging into what he calls "uniform fraud" — a move he expects to "bear significant fruit," he wrote in a recent report.
