The saga of Baltimore's ill-fated police headquarters -- built two decades ago at the cost of $13.6 million and now unusable because of asbestos and ventilation problems -- continues.Nearly a year ago, Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke announced that the police department would abandon the costly white elephant near City Hall. Out of a half-dozen alternatives, the mayor selected the old Hecht Co. building as the preferred site for the new headquarters. Under the mayor's plan, the Howard Street department store landmark was to be recycled and renovated at a cost of $26 million and would pump new life into an area that once was Baltimore's merchandising hub.It did not take long for the mayor's plan to run into trouble.

In May, Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke announced that the city would move its police headquarters from the fringes of City Hall Square to the former Hecht Co. building on Howard Street. Now the plan is running into trouble.This became evident when persistent questioning by Jacqueline McLean, the new city comptroller, and City Council President Mary Pat Clarke first led to a postponement and then to the downsizing of a $625,425 architectural contract for the new facility. Yesterday, that contract was pared down to a $180,000 assessment of the police department's space requirements that will also analyze how a police headquarters would affect traffic and parking in the Howard Street corridor.
