Baltimore commissioner pick Harrison to meet with residents in each police district before formal nomination

Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh said Monday that her new choice to become police commissioner will hold community meetings in all nine of the city’s police districts in the coming weeks, as part of a plan to build support for her pick.

In the meantime, New Orleans Police Superintendent Michael Harrison will begin work as acting commissioner by Feb. 11, Pugh said — and possibly earlier.

“The community meetings are going to be the most important for him,” Pugh said. “He wants to meet the people. He wants to get to know Baltimore.”

Friday is Harrison’s last day in New Orleans,
