The replacement late last week of the two top police commanders in the city's Central District, which covers the Inner Harbor and downtown area, is an encouraging sign that Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III is taking his department's problems seriously. A recent rash of intimidating behavior and assaults involving roving groups of unsupervised teenagers had raised troubling questions about the department's ability to keep a lid on things, especially after police assurances that more officers would be patrolling the streets failed to stop several well-publicized incidents of violence.

Inside Prince George's County police headquarters yesterday, a squad of homicide detectives and nearly a dozen other senior investigators moved into a separate office and began poring over two recent cases that were suddenly the department's top priority. Not far away, in a quiet neighborhood near FedEx Field, all anyone talked about was the possibility that the cases - two double homicides - were connected, that someone is killing mothers and their daughters. The Loftons, Karen and Karissa, were the first, shot in late January in their Largo home.

Baltimore police are seeking to padlock a city motel deemed to be a public nuisance, officials said. Police have asked the owners of the Executive Inn, in the 3600 block of Pulaski Highway in East Baltimore, to attend a hearing at police headquarters to address "repeated crimes of violence taking place at the business," according to a news release.

R ay Lewis paid a visit to Baltimore police headquarters recently, but it's not what you're thinking. The Ravens linebacker, who beat a double-murder rap a few years back but pleaded guilty to obstructing justice, wants to be on the right side of the law. He showed up at HQ a few weeks ago - during the season - and asked what he could do to help the city fight gang violence. "Ray Lewis was in here ... asking, 'What can I do to help?' Police Commish Fred Bealefeld told The Baltimore Sun's Justin Fenton.
