The Baltimore Police Department is laying off 10 cadets and 19 "contract specialists" - mostly retired officers who perform investigations and other duties on contract - to save money. Notices were sent this week to the workers, telling them that their positions are being cut in the fiscal year that begins July 1. Deputy Commissioner Kenneth Blackwell said yesterday that the projected savings will be $780,476. "Certainly through no fault of their own, but because of budget constraints, these positions are being eliminated," he said.

Elias Augustus "Tink" Dorsey, a seasoned city administrator whose career spanned from educator to serving as deputy commissioner of the Housing Authority of the City of Baltimore, died Monday of pancreatic cancer at Gilchrist Hospice Care. The longtime Woodlawn resident was 69. Dr. Dorsey, the son of a contractor and a homemaker, was born in Baltimore and raised in the city's Pimlico neighborhood. The origin of Dr. Dorsey's nickname of "Tink" or "Tinker," which he had picked up in his childhood and remained with him for the rest of his life, derived from a keen interest in tinkering with and fixing all variety of gadgets, said Daniel P. Henson III, the former city housing commissioner, who became friends with him when both were students at what is now Morgan State University.

Each time a new police commissioner arrived in Baltimore, he shuffled the department's command staff. And each time, Kenneth L. Blackwell survived and continued to climb the ranks. From 1990 until his retirement last week, Blackwell, 56, served as a high-ranking appointee under six police commissioners. During a send-off party Wednesday at police headquarters, and in conversations around the building, his colleagues praised his integrity and cool demeanor. "He's weathered storms," said Maj. Rick Hite, who first met Blackwell in 1977.

City police said they will resume weekly intelligence-sharing meetings for commanders that were suspended last month amid concerns that they had grown tired and were no longer the most effective way to pore over crime data. A memo distributed to officers said the Comstat meetings, which have not been held since April 1, will resume this Thursday with slight tweaks. The New York-based concept was adopted by Baltimore in 2000 and has become a national law enforcement standard. Gov. Martin O'Malley also applied the principles to government-management programs.
