BALTIMORE, Md. The Baltimore Police Department's acting commissioner and the former chief of Washington's Metropolitan Police Department have emerged as front-runners being considered by Mayor Sheila Dixon for the city's top law enforcement position, according to several sources familiar with the process.

Acting Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III, a 26-year veteran with broad support from within the department's ranks, faces competition for the job from Charles H. Ramsey, who stepped down in December as Washington's police chief, sources said yesterday.
