Rename the redrawn city police districts | READER COMMENTARY

A map is projected from a monitor during a news conference at police headquarters regarding the proposed modified geographic boundaries for police districts, which haven't been redrawn in more than 50 years. July 7, 2022. (Karl Merton Ferron/Baltimore Sun)

Regarding the recent article, “Some residents wary of plan to redraw Baltimore Police districts; department says it’s ‘equitable and balanced’” (Sept. 9), perhaps the acceptance of being moved into a district with a perceived lesser reputation could be helped if the districts were renamed — maybe after the major street at or nearby buildings or, better yet, given a two-digit number rather than a name.

The process is going to happen but a different district name or number could soften the displeasures noted in the article.
