Two officers have been given awards for valor by the Baltimore County Police Foundation for their role in an incident in which one shot and killed a Texas man allegedly involved in a Dundalk burglary. North Point Precinct officers Jacob T. Heins, a 12-year veteran, and Phillip G. Twisdale, with six years on the force, have returned to their jobs after county prosecutors declined to charge them in the incident that killed 22-year-old Joshua Michael Lopez. Both were hailed at an awards dinner in Hunt Valley "for their bravery and heroism during a life or death struggle," according to the program of the Tuesday event held by the foundation.

When Baltimore County Detective Patrick Cohavey opened a coast-to-coast cocaine trafficking investigation, it resulted in the seizure of 250 kilograms of cocaine and $250,000 in cash. Cohavey's investigation last year involved police in Baltimore County, Los Angeles and Honolulu, as well as federal prosecutors. For his efforts, the Baltimore County Police Department Foundation will honor Cohavey with its Exceptional Police Performance Award at the organization's 24th annual dinner tonight at Marriott's Hunt Valley Inn. In addition to Cohavey, 13 other members of the Police Department - including nine who made rescues the night Tropical Storm Isabel blew into Maryland - will be honored by the foundation, a collection of Balti- more businesses that provide private funds to the county Police Department.

Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III is set to participate in a 10-mile run June 20 to benefit the Baltimore Police Foundation - and the amount of money raised will be dictated by how fast he can run. The University of Maryland Heart Center Baltimore 10-Miler, which starts at Druid Hill Park, is expected to feature more than 3,000 runners. The last one off the starting line will be Bealefeld. Corrigan Sports Enterprises, a local sports promotion group, has pledged to donate $2 for each runner Bealefeld passes, with police trainees slapping "Caught by the Commish" stickers on those left in the commissioner's dust.

Officer Adam L. Rock is eyeing a white Acura, the way someone might look at a car parked in the middle of a swimming pool. But there's nothing out of the ordinary about this car. No dents. No broken glass. It's just that Rock hasn't seen the sedan parked in that exact spot, next to a row of houses in Edmondson Heights. This alone is reason for Rock to pause. For an officer who mentally catalogs the makes and models of what seems like nearly every car on his beat, moments like this can be important.

When word spread of Casper's plight - the Labrador retriever was being cared for by Anne Arundel County police after being found with its throat slashed - offers of financial help came pouring in. The Police Department's Animal Control Section doesn't accept cash donations, so the Anne Arundel County Police Foundation stepped forward. "People wanted to send money in," said Lt. James Richey of the Animal Control Section. "So the police foundation agreed to oversee the money, and they took up some of the bills for Casper."

THE EARLY rationalizations in support of the work of the Anne Arundel County Economic Development Corp. keep unraveling. First, it was revealed that the organization awarded no-bid contracts to companies its members operate. Now comes a report that the board lent $11,000 to a foundation that has nothing to do with its mission to promote business.Defenders of the quasi-public board formerly argued that its directors should not be subjected to so much criticism because of the good they do for the community.

It began as a two-month advertising blitz against drugs and crime but grew into a central, defining theme of Baltimore government -- a battle cry in black and white, called out from firehouses, schools and City Hall itself. Baltimore's "Believe" campaign -- though still clinging to the back bumpers of some city vehicles -- appears to be ending, weeks after its creator, Mayor Martin O'Malley, became governor. Sheila Dixon, his successor as mayor, is weighing a recommendation to drop the initiative.

The simple message of Mayor Martin O'Malley's "Believe" campaign has taken many forms since its inception in April 2002, from billboards to bumper stickers to television commercials to huge banners draped across downtown office buildings. But the latest incarnation - and greatest, in terms of sheer size - a 25-by-75-foot mural at the corner of Clay and Liberty streets downtown, isn't actually part of the campaign. Fifteen kids from Baltimore, with some help from their mentor, artist Tony Shore, the Junior League and the Police Foundation, conceptualized and created the work in an attempt to share their hopes and dreams for Baltimore with others.

Worried that his department is behind in technology and could have trouble attracting enough recruits, Baltimore Police Commissioner Edward T. Norris has been approaching businesses and nonprofit groups and asking for help - $1.2 million worth. Norris has set up the Baltimore Police Foundation to solicit donations to buy equipment. He would especially like to purchase gadgets that track cellular telephones, wire-tapping devices and possibly surveillance cameras for street corners. "This will enable me to buy some of this stuff and buy it quickly," Norris said.

ROCKVILLE - As the first of a sniper's six victims was buried yesterday, police combed through thousands of tips and turned for help to a little-used "geographic profile" that they hope could narrow their search for the killer. Using the geographic profile "shows we're not willing to limit ourselves," said Montgomery County Police Chief Charles Moose, whose department has never tried the investigative tool. "We're trying each and every thing available to us to assist us." Police also are waiting for FBI specialists to develop a psychological portrait of the killer.

JUDGING FROM the reaction, you'd think Baltimore police Commissioner Ed Norris had taken his wife on a three-week vacation in Paris, spent bundles on an elaborate shopping spree and paid for it all with the money from that "slush fund" that has residents of Payback City in such high dudgeon. But that's not what he did. Using a fund of donated money other commissioners had used, Norris spent $178,000 for gifts - sweat shirts and jackets for police commanders attending an Orioles game on a chilly night - trips to other cities, lodging and meals.
