Anne Arundel County has launched a tip line designed to let people report possible unethical or inappropriate behavior by Anne Arundel County police. The tip line, 410-222-2400, feeds to a task force examining the agency, and is a voice mailbox where people — residents as well as county employees — can leave information. Tips can be made anonymously, though people are encouraged to leave contact information, according to a statement from County Executive Laura Neuman. Neuman, who called for an investigation into the department, said the hotline is aimed at providing confidentiality for people who want to provide information they think can help the task force.

Standing before an orange billboard in Southwest Baltimore, Mayor Martin O'Malley and police officials unveiled yesterday a new anonymous tip line that they predicted will lead to better investigations of drug dealers. "We've made a lot of progress over the past year in pushing the open-air drug markets off our streets. ... We still have a long way to go," O'Malley said. In addition to changing the phone number to 666-DRUG (410-666-3784), the mayor and police said they are changing how it operates.

Howard County police hope that a $250 reward will entice residents to pick up the phone to report illegal guns. The program, called Project Cease Fire, went into effect late last month and is similar to hundreds of initiatives across the nation. Some have been successful in helping authorities track down illegal guns while other police departments say their tip lines have led to only a handful of arrests each year. Howard police hope to avoid such a low total by publicizing their program heavily, which many say is vital in such efforts.

Baltimore County police have set up a tip line to help get illegal weapons off the streets and out of the hands of criminals. The tip line - 410-887-GUNS - is similar to one established last year in Baltimore City. Residents can call to report someone who has an illegal firearm. The Police Department will pay tipsters $50 or more for information that leads to an arrest. The county's tip line, which began operating this week, was created with a $72,000 grant from Maryland State Police.

A fugitive wanted by police for questioning about a mass shooting in East Baltimore on Memorial Day turned himself in yesterday as family and friends gathered for the funeral of his 24-year-old girlfriend, who was killed in the gunfire. Shawn C. Henry, 23, is wanted in the attempted murder of a rival gang leader's wife - one in a string of violent acts committed by members of two warring gangs in recent months, Baltimore police said. The feud likely spawned the shooting of 12 people who were attending a party to remember a gang member slain last year, authorities say. Henry's girlfriend, Lakeisha Moten, was the only person killed.

Faced with increasing threats of violence in school, Carroll County education officials are teaming up with the state's attorney's office to increase awareness of a 2-year-old anonymous tip line aimed at preventing school shootings that have struck other parts of the country. School administrators plan to distribute hundreds of posters and thousands of business cards this month with the phone number -- 410-386-2045. Carroll State's Attorney Jerry F. Barnes also has added a toll-free number -- 866-332-7363, which spells out "fear end" on the telephone -- to accommodate South Carroll residents for whom the tip line has been a long-distance call.

The administrative coordinator for Metro Crime Stoppers - a regional program that pays rewards for crime tips - has been fired as city police investigate financial irregularities, police and other officials said yesterday. Officials said the investigation is administrative and is aimed at determining whether money is missing and whether a criminal inquiry is possible. Robin Stevenson, who has done volunteer work for the Baltimore Police Department and was hired by the nonprofit Crime Stoppers program last year to process tips, did not respond to interview requests yesterday.

Baltimore police have put a bounty on illegal guns. No longer are they just encouraging people to call 410-685-GUNS to report people carrying firearms. Now they are paying $200 for each tip that leads to an arrest and a gun seizure. "People will give up their mother for $200," Police Commissioner Edward T. Norris said. "People should be doing this for nothing, but sometimes a little cash incentive goes a long way." The money comes from a $79,000 grant from the Governor's Office of Crime Control and Prevention and adds muscle to the city's gun tip line, which has existed for years.
