Annie Monroe got in a quick workout at the FutureCare Irvington nursing home on a recent afternoon. But the 87-year-old great-grandmother doesn't live there. She was sent by a hospital in December for rehabilitation after suffering an infection. While the nursing home counts her as filling one of 40 rehab beds at the wooded campus outside of Catonsville, her home is in Baltimore.

Bullock was walking his dog near his home on Baltimore's West Lafayette Avenue when three pit bulls escaped from a nearby yard, charged over to Bullock and his dog and attacked them both.

" Bullock, 32, an assistant professor in political science at Towson University, was impressed — and he wanted to know more about how the police do their jobs and how to establish a working relationship with the officers in his neighborhood.
