06/12/07 Deputy Police Commissioner Fred Bealefeld.


The FBI released it’s 2006 crime statistics last week and it looks like Baltimore is the second most violent city in the country, behind Detroit.

Our homicide rate is out of control.

Yet the violent crime rate, which includes rape, robbery, and assault, is down, bucking a nationwide trend.

What’s going on?

We’ll tackle some of the same topics we talked about with David Kennedy.  How is Mayor Dixon’s reign influencing the Police Department?  Will there be a shift away from the statistics driven model that O’Malley preferred?  How is the Police Department using Mayor Dixon’s crime plan?  What is the strategy?

We’ll be joined by Baltimore City Police Department Deputy Police Commissioner Fred Bealefeld.  Join us!
