Baltimore police commanders are scheduled to talk about their dire budget this evening at City Hall, hoping to stave off cuts that threaten the jobs of hundreds of officers. The commissioner has warned that slashing his spending could erase achievements in crime reduction. But it appears that members of the Budget and Appropriations Committee want to talk about nearly everything but Budget and Appropriations. The committee's chief aide e-mailed a list of 14 questions to the police commissioner Tuesday to help him prepare for the hearing.

Mayor Sheila Dixon told members of the city's delegation yesterday that redrawing Police District boundary lines is a "top priority," signaling that her administration is considering the first major shuffling of police resources throughout the city in decades. The lines, which have not changed significantly since the mid-1960s, were established to evenly allocate police resources. For years, some officials have said the current system is antiquated and fails to account for shifting population patterns and increased levels of violence.

I attended my first felon "call-in" the other night, and came away thinking: Why haven't we been doing this, once a month in every Baltimore police district, for the last 20 years? If you've never heard the term before, don't feel bad. When I asked an officer at the front desk of the Western District where the "call-in" was being held, he didn't seem to know what I was talking about. He directed me to what he called a "community meeting" through doors and down a hall. But this was like no community meeting I've ever seen.

As Baltimore County has grown, its police department has moved over the years into new facilities in places like White Marsh, Towson and Reisterstown. But the opening of a station house today in Pikesville is, department officials say, unlike any in more than half a century. The others were built to replace antiquated facilities. The brick-and-glass building in Pikesville is for a newly created precinct. The new Precinct 4 is designed to enable a team of officers to focus on the law enforcement needs of the Pikesville area while relieving some of the burden of covering the fast-growing neighboring police district that stretches northwest to Reisterstown and beyond.

George H. Deuchler Jr., who joined Baltimore's Police Department as a beat patrolman and rose through the ranks to become its deputy commissioner during a career spanning more than three decades, died in his sleep April 16 at his Pasadena home. He was 94. "There is not enough time in the day to tell people how great this man was. He was a great police officer and gentleman," said William V. Treherne, a retired Baltimore police sergeant. "The only thing he missed was being commissioner, and I don't think he ever wanted it."

After discovering possible contamination of tests to determine whether a suspect could have fired a gun, the Baltimore Police Department has changed its test policy and warned prosecutors that some of their cases could contain faulty evidence. The city state's attorney's office said this week that it has known of the problem with gunshot residue tests since late July but has not alerted all defense attorneys - notification the city public defender's office says should have come long ago. Neither the police, prosecutors nor defense attorneys know how many criminal cases have been affected by potential contamination, although they say the number is probably small.
