Public Safety Forum

Note from the Desk of Anna Mudd–

The Mayor is hosting a public safety forum on Monday night at the National Federation for the Blind at 7PM. Community involvement is crucial to the success of these events and we want to make sure you know that the Federal Hill Neighborhood is welcome to join us! I’ve attached a copy of the flyer we’ve been circulating and would appreciate it if you could share it with your membership.
Thanks so much! Please let me know if you have any questions.

June 18th Community Meeting with BPD’s Southern District

Notes provided by Lynn Halperin, FHNA’s Public Safety Chair

*Police Commissioner Batts attended the first part of the meeting to recognize the outstanding work of retiring Kevin Vaught (Butterbean). Butterbean’s wife, two sons and in- laws attended as well as representatives of the Explorers. Butterbeans’ father was a Baltimore policeman, he joined the force in 1947. Butterbean came to Baltimore in 1999.

*Discussion of current crime concerns led by Major Dombroski:

1.During the riots The Southern district was understaffed but the police worked hard and effectively.

Residents of Cherry Hill came out in full force and were greatly responsible for preventing

looting at the Cherry Hill Shopping Center.

2. A family, mother, father and two young sons, expressed great concern about how the father was attacked outside their home in Cherry Hill and nothing has been done. A police officer met with them and took information.

3.Two gentlemen brought up the concern that there are prostitutes hanging around many of the corners in Brooklyn: residential and commercial neighborhoods. There was a discussion about how hard a problem this is for police because when they are arrested they are released within 10 hours and “back to work”.


Robberies                 up 3%

Aggravated assaults   up 5%

Burglaries                 up 12%
