Police Commissioner Edward V. Woods says that a continuing reorganization of Baltimore's Police Department will eliminate a division and two top-level positions.
Together with recent shifts that eliminated another top-level job, the new changes will save about $150,000 in salaries, officials said yesterday.
Part of a five-year plan, the moves are in keeping with the de
partment's community-oriented policing program intended to "scale down the bureaucracy," Commissioner Woods said.
Being eliminated is the Inspectional Services Division. Maj. Elbert F. Shirey, who heads it, will be transferred to the Northeastern District to replace Maj. John C. Lewandowski, said Sam Ringgold, a police spokesman.
