Regarding your report that Baltimore needs an outside consultant to advise its police department, my question is: Really? ("Baltimore police seek an outside consultant," Jan. 18). Does Baltimore really need to pay yet another consultant to advise the department about how to execute its mission? Isn't that city Police Commissioner Anthony Batts' job? When interviewed for the commissioner's post, didn't the interviewers ask him what strategies he had in mind to reduce crime in Baltimore?

With a resurgence of violence in Ferguson, Mo., I am reminded of a revelation that I had over 30 years ago upon becoming an inner city police officer. I learned to accept, but not fully understand, that the perceived value to human life on the street in many of the downtrodden areas of America is substantially lower than it is to the police and many others living under better socio-economic circumstances. When the two cultures of diverse values clash it often results in those with higher self-esteem being forced to take actions they would not choose to take except out of a desire for self-preservation.

I read the article "City police shuffle ranks, seek national accreditation" (Dec. 31) with a vested interest as a retired Baltimore City police officer. The awarding of "accreditation" for police agencies is not a new concept and existed well before my own retirement, some 16 years ago. The process of being certified as an accredited agency is exhaustive and covers literally every function within the department. To prepare the agency for this certification is a labor- and time-intensive undertaking, involving participation at all levels.
