Because of an editing error, a quotation attributed to Officer Gary S. Sisserman was taken out of context in an article in yesterday's editions of The Sun about the shootings at Baltimore police headquarters.The article should have explained that several officers said their colleagues are reluctant to confide in police psychiatrists and often keep their problems bottled up inside, before quoting Officer Sisserman as saying: "We don't even talk about it among ourselves. We are all very isolated."

Defying police orders to stop putting campaign literature on cars, supporters of mayoral candidate Andrey Bundley slipped fliers under the windshield wipers of cars owned by several city employees yesterday during a rally outside Baltimore police headquarters. Bundley, who is challenging Martin O'Malley in the Sept. 9 Democratic primary, was handcuffed and charged with a misdemeanor Sunday night for putting fliers on cars. Such leafleting is illegal, but the law is seldom enforced. At a news conference outside police headquarters yesterday, Bundley said officers had no justification to handcuff him for doing what politicians have done for years.

Annapolis would receive $1 million to renovate and expand its police headquarters on Taylor Avenue under Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s proposed fiscal 2004 capital budget. City officials had been concerned for some time that the headquarters, built nearly 30 years ago, was not meeting the needs of the police force. For the past few months, Annapolis police have used temporary trailers next to the facility. After the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Annapolis was identified as a potential terrorist target because it is the state capital and the site of the Naval Academy, police officials said.
