9/4 Frederick Bealefeld III


In July, Mayor Sheila Dixon fired Police Commissioner Leonard Hamm and replaced him, at least temporarily, with Frederick H. Bealefeld III who has stated he would like the job full-time.

As the Sun recently reported, Bealefeld has emerged as one of the top two contenders for the position of Baltimore’s top cop. Viewed as a street-savvy hands-on cop, Bealefeld, who comes from a family of police officers, has steadily climbed the ranks through the police department to his current position.
