When you consider the final score, it's hard to make the case that any one play undid the Ravens in Thursday night's ugly NFL opener against the Denver Broncos. But it isn't very difficult to determine the moment when that intangible pendulum called momentum swung back so hard it knocked the defending Super Bowl champions all the way into next week. Maybe Peyton Manning still would have picked the Ravens secondary apart if John Harbaugh had thrown his replay flag and ended Denver's first drive of the second half.

When Baltimore first installed crime cameras in 2005, they numbered fewer than 200 and were largely confined to high-crime areas. Two mayors later, the number of cameras in the city's police surveillance system has quadrupled. Baltimore owns 583 and has access to feeds from more than 250 installed by various businesses. Now that system is likely to become much larger. The city's Board of Estimates agreed last week to create a database that will make it easier for businesses to give the Police Department access to their private security cameras.

Inmates will not have to be bused from the city jail to a Northwest Baltimore courthouse for bail reviews, under an agreement reached yesterday between jail officials and the public defender's office. The agreement came two days after District Court Judge Keith E. Matthews ruled that the poor quality of the video bail-review system denied defendants' rights. He ordered defendants brought to the Wabash Avenue courthouse for hearings. Under the deal, officials at the Central Booking and Intake Center promised to demonstrate new equipment within 30 days.

The Maryland Board of Public Works approved yesterday a settlement between the Orioles and the Maryland Stadium Authority that will clear the way for the installation of new video display and audio systems at Camden Yards. The club and the stadium authority hope to have the new equipment in place before next season but say they face a tight schedule to finish the work by then. Next week, the stadium authority will host manufacturers of video and audio equipment at Camden Yards. The companies will deliver prospective construction schedules and prices, and the club and authority will then settle on a final design plan and begin the process of selecting winning bids for the work.

Next week, drivers will speed down Interstate 495, maybe weaving in traffic or tailgating a tractor-trailer, before flying by a large 4x4 with state police markings.Many of those drivers will relax when the police vehicle doesn't pursue, thinking they've escaped for another day of dangerous motoring.But what they just drove past was a souped-up Ford Bronco equipped with calibrated lasers and three cameras designed to capture dangerous drivers on tape.In a few weeks, those reckless drivers are likely to receive letters about their actions that day, with color photographs showing them in midviolation.

Violent crime at Baltimore County shopping centers that have installed security cameras have fallen by nearly a third since 2006 — about twice the countywide rate of decline, according to a police study. County Councilman Kevin Kamenetz, who introduced legislation in 2005 to require video cameras at shopping centers with 15 stores or more, discussed the report's findings Monday outside the Shops at Kenilworth in Towson. "I don't want to suggest that cameras alone are responsible for the drop," said Kamenetz, who is running for the Democratic nomination for county executive.

PHILADELPHIA -- Al-Moez Alimohamed's life was cut short before he could complete his graduate studies in mathematics; Vladimir Sled's before he could finish his research in biochemistry. Both were victims of brutal street murders not far from the University of Pennsylvania, an urban campus of 23,000 undergraduate, graduate and professional students, and an equal number of employees just west of Center City. Their killings, within 26 months of each other in the mid-1990s, caused the same kind of anguish that has been so evident on the Homewood campus of the Johns Hopkins University after the killings of senior Linda Trinh last month and junior Christopher Elser in the spring.
