September 24, 1997|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A top Baltimore police commander has been elected to head the Maryland Chiefs of Police Association, a politically active group representing 200 top police executives in the state.

Col. Steven A. Crumrine, who is one of two commanders of the patrol bureau, will serve as president for a year. The new vice president is Col. David B. Mitchell, superintendent of the Maryland State Police.

The group represents the concerns of police executives in the General Assembly, and Crumrine said he plans to work closely with elected officials. "We have a fairly influential voice in the legislative body," he said.

Crumrine, a 23-year veteran, said that during his yearlong stint as president, he will push for standardized training of officers in cultural diversity and combating sexual harassment.
