New leadership starts at the Baltimore City Police today, as Michael Harrison becomes the city's new acting police commissioner. Mayor Catherine Pugh is also formally sending Harrison's nomination to the City Council for confirmation.
Harrison is the former New Orleans Police Superintendent and told WDSU in New Orleans he wants to hear from both residents and police officers.
Harrison says he wants to hear the needs of both groups and then he says he can work to help restore trust between the public and police and between officers and department leadership.
And for the next two weeks, Harrison will appear at town hall meetings in each of the nine police districts.
Tonight's meeting is set for 7 P.M. At Forest Park High School.
Harrison will also appear at City Hall this morning at a news conference with the mayor, and you will hear that news conference live on WBAL this morning at 10.
