Several of Baltimore's Hispanic leaders demanded an apology yesterday from the city Sheriff's Department for the alleged beating of a member of their community who was mistaken for a bank robber and shot with stun guns.

Anne Arundel County deputy sheriffs are expected to vote tonight on the county's latest contract offer, the third in six weeks. The vote will come less than a day before a fact-finder is to issue contract recommendations. The newest offer is not much different from the last three-year pact that deputies rejected. That one would have crunched the pay scale so that workers would reach the top in 10 years instead of 22, offered an average 7 percent pay hike stretched over three years and phased in a gun and clothing allowance of about $650.

Since 1851, the Howard County sheriff's deputies had been working without job protection and became the last deputies in the state to be at-will employees who could be let go for any reason. Despite lingering fear that a newly elected sheriff could clear out the office, repeated efforts to get job protection for the deputies failed until last year, when Cpl. Andrew S. Mackert helped form a Fraternal Order of Police lodge. Since that time, the group has embarked on a campaign to win its members job protection rights and raise money for fallen officer and scholarship funds.
