Southeast Baltimore youth center replaced

August 05, 1998|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

The Baltimore Police Department opened a new Police Athletic League center in O'Donnell Heights yesterday, enabling the agency to move out of a makeshift office with a capacity of 50 to a building that can accommodate 300 youths.

The Southeast Baltimore facility is one of 27 centers throughout the city that are the centerpiece of Police Commissioner Thomas C. Frazier's youth initiative.

The new center, in the 1200 block of Gusryan St., replaces one in the O'Donnell Heights housing complex.

Col. Alvin Winkler, head of the youth bureau, said it has a gym, a kitchen and a computer lab.
