Baltimore State’s Attorney Ivan Bates unveiled Thursday a plan to resume enforcement of two dozen low-level, nonviolent offenses such as drug possession and trespassing, reversing the city’s hands-off policy of the past three years. Bates appeared beside the mayor and police commissioner to announce the plan that calls for officers to begin writing citations June 12. “There’s going to be some accountability and order in Baltimore,” Bates said.
