A First For The Police

Here's one of those pieces of news that you'd thought would have happened by now...The Sun reports that the county police chief has promoted the first African-American to the post of major, the department's second-highest rank.

"Maj. Kevin Burnett, 47, formerly the commander of the county's Southern District, will oversee administration, which includes human resources, budget, training and forensic departments, among others," the newspaper said.

Burnett, of Randallstown, has been an assistant football coach at Long Reach High School for 11 years.
