Training division director leaving Police Department

The director of the Police Department's training division said yesterday that he will leave March 24, one of the latest in a series of departures since a new commissioner took over in December.

Maj. Allen S. Kogut, 46, said he is leaving "to move to another career." He will not receive full retirement benefits because he is stepping down a year shy of his 20th anniversary, the minimum tenure required under the pension system.

Kogut spent 15 years in patrol as an officer and a supervisor. He was promoted to major in 1997, after serving as an aide to Commissioner Thomas C. Frazier, to run the training division, which he called "the highlight of my career."

2 hurt on Hopkins campus during protest over wages

About 250 people demonstrating for higher wages for workers scuffled with security guards when the demonstrators tried to enter the administration building at the Homewood campus of the Johns Hopkins University yesterday, resulting in minor injuries to a guard and a demonstrator.

About seven of the protesters -- students, clergy and labor leaders -- were involved in the incident. University officials said no arrests are expected.

The demonstration was sponsored by the Student Labor Action Committee, which wants the university to extend its "living wage" policy to independent contractors and require them to pay workers the $7.75 an hour that Hopkins employees and contract workers are paid. It focused on Up-To-Date Laundry, a service used by Johns Hopkins Health System that starts workers at $5.50 an hour.
