The roll call room in the city's Western District police station seems more like a memorial than a meeting place -- one of its walls is covered by brass plaques dedicated to the memory of officers killed on some of Baltimore's roughest streets. Yesterday, police officials added another plaque -- the 15th -- to the wall of honor. This one was for Officer Crystal D. Sheffield, 35, who died in a car accident in August while responding to a colleague's call for help. Calling Sheffield a hero, Mayor Martin O'Malley and Police Commissioner Edward T. Norris said the officer and others were responsible for drops in violent crime citywide.
