LEAP - Law Enforcement Against Prohibition
Executive Director
Baltimore, Maryland
Major Neill Franklin, a 34-year law enforcement veteran, retired from the Maryland State Police in 1999 after rising through the ranks, undercover narcotics agent to a commander within the Bureau of Drug and Criminal Enforcement. Major Franklin was recruited by the Baltimore Police Commissioner to command Baltimore’s Education and Training Division and was soon after promoted to Chief of Human Resources. In 2004 Major Franklin joined Maryland’s Transit Police Force as commander of the Detective Bureau and on July 1, 2010, he stepped away from his law enforcement career to serve as the executive director for Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. Major Franklin believes that our failed drug prohibition laws are counterproductive to public safety. They are also the foundation for today’s civil forfeiture policies; therefore, responsible for an array of Constitutional rights violations committed at the hands law enforcement.
