Video: Baltimore police launch daily newscast

Each episode will stream live and talk about significant arrests and acts of violence

BALTIMORE — City police officials said they believe the Baltimore Police Department is the first in the nation to launch a daily newscast.

BPD-TV will stream live from Baltimore City police headquarters weekdays at 12:30 p.m., and each episode will be archived on the Baltimore Police Department's website. "We're going to talk about significant arrests. We're going to talk about robberies, acts of violence that may have occurred in your community, (and we'll air) suspect descriptions from the night before," police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said.

The newscast comes as part of a new, virtual front line in Baltimore City's policing strategy. The idea of the new newscast is to interact with the public in any way possible. Police officials said delivering police news online is the next logical step in their multimedia push.
