Baltimore County police are searching for a registered sex offender who did not report for his required check-in with city police and have issued a warrant for his arrest. Police say Christopher Hilliard, 33, of the 1500 block of Charlotte Ave., in southeast Baltimore was reported missing on Sept. 17 and did not report to city police on Oct. 8 as required. Hilliard must regularly report to police because he is a registered sex offender and police have issued a warrant for arrest for failing to register.

Baltimore Police are doing away with use of the term “stop and frisk,” though officers will continue to be able to use the controversial search tactic. Baltimore's Deputy Police Commissioner Jerry Rodriguez said that national controversy over the New York Police Department's heavy use of the practice has led to a negative connotation from which police must distance themselves. “Anybody in any department that would keep that name, in my opinion, would be remiss,” Rodriguez said in a recent interview.

As he ends his first year on the job, Baltimore police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts is facing questions about whether he is taking too long to remake the agency and develop a crime-fighting strategy. But others say he is being candid about the city's problems and deserves more time to make progress. Batts, 53, said in a wide-ranging interview that he has been making improvements to the agency of nearly 3,000 officers, though not as quickly as he would like. He plans to keep a relentless focus on gangs and address issues of attrition and low pay for officers.
