BALTIMORE (WJZ)– In light of the deadly ambushes that are plaguing police departments nationwide, both Baltimore City and Baltimore County police are ordering their officers to change tactics, specifically with the way they respond to calls.
Rick Ritter breaks down the new order that seems to be picking up momentum across the country.
