As a crime summit approaches and a survey finds public mistrust of police, the beat goes on for one Northern District officer who patrols the crime-prone Pen Lucy area. "It's the passion that I have," said Officer Edwin Albino, 37, of Edgewood, a nearly eight-year veteran of the Baltimore City Police Department and a Puerto Rico state police officer before that. "As soon as I wake up in the morning and put my uniform on, there is a sense of pride. I will work in any (police) district, because I'm representing Baltimore City police.

A Baltimore man serving a 60-year murder sentence now faces life without parole in an unrelated homicide in Glen Burnie, after he was convicted Monday of the first-degree murder of Dr. Albert Woonho Ro. Dante Jeter, 25, is scheduled to be sentenced July 24 in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court for his role in the fatal beating, stabbing and robbery on Sept. 26, 2006, of Ro, 51, a dentist well-known in the area's Korean-American community. Prosecutor Anne Colt Leitess said she intends to seek life without parole for the murder, plus another life sentence for Jeter's conviction of conspiring with his cousin, Shontay Joyner Hickman, 37, also of Baltimore, and possibly additional time for a robbery conviction.

In the weeks leading up to Tuesday's contentious primary election for Baltimore state's attorney, Margaret T. Burns deferred questions about her boss' re-election bid to a spokeswoman hired by the campaign. Burns earns about $100,000 a year to speak on behalf of Jessamy and her prosecutors, usually about convictions and cases won in court. During the primary race, the city's top prosecutor maintained a separate Web page and Facebook page for the campaign, signals that office work and political work shouldn't mix. But on Wednesday, Burns took center stage in Jessamy's bid to retain her office.

Sgt. John Kowalczyk wasn't hiding his sexual orientation; he just wasn't broadcasting it. But word was spreading through the police academy, and he sensed tension. He asked to address his fellow officers and got right to the point. "I'm gay," he said. "What do you want to know?" He answered questions for the next hour - some inquisitive, others downright insulting - and spent the rest of the training academy working to show his peers that he could hold his own as a cop. Seven years later, Kowalczyk, 31, remains one of the few openly gay officers in the Baltimore Police Department.

Amid criticism of a nearly $8 million projected shortfall in their overtime budget, Baltimore police say they have found one solution to troubling staffing shortages: a new unit that handles some 911 calls by phone so patrol officers can concentrate on emergencies. The Telephone Reporting Unit carries an additional benefit, police say. Officers restricted from street duties by injuries or health problems can use their experience to handle many calls, including those about property damage or stolen vehicles.

The Baltimore Police Department has ordered a review of all secondary employment arrangements after receiving an inquiry from The Baltimore Sun about officers who were hired by a Southwest Baltimore business that had experienced a rash of break-ins. A police spokesman said Deputy Commissioner for Operations Anthony Barksdale ordered an audit Tuesday after police were unable to find paperwork authorizing officers to moonlight at Mary Sue Candies, a 60-year-old company known for its candy Easter eggs that has recently been hit by thieves taking copper pipes.

R ecently there has been outrage over the revelation that the pensions for retiring members of the Baltimore County Council, after serving in office for 20 years, are $54,000 per year, for life. Outrageous as this may be, when it comes to what is wrong with Baltimore County government, it is just the tip of the iceberg. There is great excitement over the possibility that several Baltimore County Council seats may be changing hands in this year's election. Thinking beyond the pensions issue, it is important now to frame the top issues of governance that citizens should be focused on before next year's elections.

The Maryland secretary of state's office -- a tiny agency that deals almost exclusively with the little-known functions of government -- has emerged as a quasi-political arm of the executive branch under Gov. Parris N. Glendening.On paper, the office is charged with obscure duties that range from attesting to the governor's signature and keeping the Great Seal of Maryland to registering trademarks and policing charities.But under Secretary of State John T. Willis, Glendening's close friend and chief political adviser, the office is used in an increasingly visible way to advance the governor's agenda and maintain links to political and community leaders around the state.
