In a unanimous the council approved a package of 28 orders to Police Chief John C. Schmitt to reform his troubled department. Nearly 40 including the attended the council witnessing first- hand the vote that should bring about changes some of them have wanted for years. The council's orders will require Schmitt to trim the police department's command struc- ture from seven to four divisions At least a dozen officers should be freed from desk assignments and reassigned to patrol under Changes put more officers on street the orders. The orders are' based on an exhaustive study of the city's 101-officer force conducted last year by a private consulting firm. Budget savings of as much as were projected by the firm if all its recommenda- tions were implemented Aldermen said those estimates were too high and savings would likely be smaller. The council's orders also will require Schmitt Establish permanent foot patrol beats in the downtown and Clay Street areas to be manned by at least four regular officers working 8-hour Keep the rank of corporal in the com- mand but reassign ten current corporals from office to patrol Eliminate the current unpopular three- shift work system and adopt a five-shift system that puts more officers on the street and helps boost Keep the current force of three officers and dogs in the department's K-9 Corps.

Seat belt required House approves buckle-up bill By PAT RIVIERE Staff Writer Without discussion or the House early this morning passed legislation requiring Maryland motorists to wear seat belts. As the House session lumbered past mid- the House voted 8945 to approve the mandatory seat belt bill Among the 13 Anne Arundel County dele-t. only Dels. Charles W. Kolod-v D-Glen and William D- voted against the bill. The Senate already has passed its version of the which is essentially the same as the House version. The bill requires the driver and the front seat passenger next to the door to buckle up beginning July 1. Violators could be fined up to but failure to wear a seat belt could not be used in court as evidence that a motorist contributed to an accident. Passengers 16 years old and older would be ticketed. The driver would be ticketed if the passenger not wearing a belt was under 16. The bill applies to all motorists traveling on Maryland roadways. Under the police officers could only issue tickets for not wearing seat belts if the car was stopped for another violation. Proponents of a seat belt law mounted a massive lobbying campaign last year and managed to win passage of a bill in the Senate. But the mandatory legislation was killed by the House Judiciary which this year brought the bill to the House floor for a vote. Regulations issued two years ago by the U.S. Department of Transportation sparked nationwide debate over the issue. The regulations require automobile manu- facturers to install air bags unless states with two thirds of the nation's population enact mandatory seat belt legislation by 1989. M Page Col.
