Specialized unit finds success after being staffed again
'We're allowing them to be investigators again,' says Capt. in charge of Police and Community Together (PACT) unit, 'we've given them the avenues to be police officers.'

BALTIMORE — When county police officers in the Northern District PACT unit received complaints of possible drug and prostitution activity at the Motel 6 in Linthicum, they took it seriously.
Members of the unit staked out the motel on Raynor Avenue during the late-night hours of July 6 and observed what they called "suspicious activity" in the parking lot. When officers approached just after midnight, a man took off, tossing a handgun while being chased by officers.
