Responding to a decade of community complaints, Baltimore County officials announced yesterday that they will put the Parkville police precinct back under its own command, a move they say will allow the department to pay more attention to the older community's needs. In 1992, the department's Parkville precinct command was merged with the one in neighboring White Marsh, a decision that cut costs but led to a perception that police were paying more attention to fast-growing White Marsh and not enough to the mature community of Parkville, Police Chief Terrence B. Sheridan said.

Who is giving Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenentz advice, or is he just thinking this stuff up on the fly ("Efficiency but no vision," Dec. 12)? The sale of the North Point police precinct is a terrible idea. I was a Baltimore County police officer for 31 years and spent approximately one-third of my career at the North Point station. I was elated when the Merritt Boulevard precinct opened knowing that it was in the center of the district and getting onto the main roads to a call for help was simple.

Eyrania Smith is, in the words of Maryland's second-highest court, a "truly innocent and injured" person. Eyrania Smith, in the words of the same judges of Maryland's Court of Special Appeals, has no basis to sue over her mistreatment. That ruling comes even though all sides agree that Smith was mistakenly arrested on a city warrant that should never have existed, taken away by a police officer who left her two children alone in a car in a highway parking lot, and was shackled by her left wrist and ankles to a pole for more than 12 hours in a Baltimore County police precinct.
