Senior police official resigns in Baltimore

March 05, 2010

A high-ranking Baltimore police official stepped down this week, police confirmed. Chief Ann Wells, a civilian who was one of the highest-ranking members of the Police Department's administrative bureau, resigned Tuesday. Anthony Guglielmi, the department's chief spokesman, said he could not elaborate on the circumstances surrounding her departure, citing restrictions on personnel matters. Wells declined to comment. The department's top ranks have thinned in recent years, with several command-level positions kept open after departures. The overall administrative ranks have also been reduced, with the agency moving about 180 officers from desk jobs to the streets in the past two years, according to department statistics.
