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.

For years, Dr. Martina Callum has traveled the country and the world as a locum tenens physician, providing temporary health care in communities where few doctors exist. But after months on the road, she'd return home to an apartment in White Marsh that could barely hold the furniture, art and other items that she had accumulated over a lifetime. "I was flying back and forth to places like Alaska and paying a lot of rent here," says Callum, who was raised in East Baltimore.

Peter Hermann's "Crime Scenes" is a reported feature that provides context about many of the incidents that take place on the streets of Baltimore and beyond. The last shots in the decades-long feud between the Old York and Cator Avenue Boys and the McCabe Avenue Boys might have been fired years ago. Arrests, violent deaths and attrition have rendered these once-notorious neighborhood groups nothing more than street-corner legend. Graffiti and tennis shoes that once hung from power lines marking turf no longer mar the urban landscape that defines North Baltimore's Pen Lucy neighborhood, though its main street, Old York Road, remains a desolate, narrow passageway lined with empty, gated storefronts, one where a South Korean merchant was killed in a robbery in 1997.

Baltimore police are looking for arsonists responsible for throwing about a dozen crude incendiary devices at buildings since late April. One of the homes hit by the devices - made from bottles and jugs - belonged to a Muslim family in North Baltimore. A preliminary investigation suggested that the incident was hate-related, Baltimore police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said. But investigators now believe it was one in a series of attacks on apparently random places. "There's a Muslim family who's had an incident and we've talked to them at length," said Baltimore police Sgt. Dennis Raftery, who leads arson investigations.
