A Baltimore police officer awaiting trial for murder in the death of his fiancee died early Monday in an apparent suicide in jail, state prison officials said. James Walton Smith, 49, was being held in protective custody in the state's high-rise jail complex at Madison Street and Greenmount Avenue, officials said. The death brings more scrutiny to the embattled state corrections system, which pledged reforms after the April indictment of an inmate federal prosecutors say conspired with 13 corrections officers in the Baltimore City Detention Center to smuggle in drugs and cellphones.

Amid the deluge of be-on-the-lookouts and other information dumped on Southern District officers during afternoon roll call Friday, there are three names that stick out to Officer Andre Smith Jr. They are the light rail robbery suspect, the suspected Westport drug dealer, and the Juvie. At only 25 years of age, Smith, a product of Baltimore's east side, already has seven years on, after joining the force as a cadet upon graduation. He's young, talks fast, cares about the people on his post, and is eager to impress.

"Community policing" is the buzz word of today's law enforcement. Countless consultants are working overtime, advising local police departments how they could become more responsive to broader societal concerns rather than just responding to 911 calls and arresting people. That's what many foot patrolmen used to do in the old days, when life was slower and simpler.Community policing -- whether it is a declared policy or an informal goal -- is only as good as officers on the beat, however.
