"We’ve got a police presence here as a precaution, just to make sure things stay safe," says Lt. Michael Pristoop, the officer in charge. "In the Fells Point area, I’d say we have about 70 officers. On a normal weekend night we might have 12 to 15. I’m sure [the officers] would rather be home, but I haven’t heard any complaints.

Lt. Brian Pearson showed off the newest resource for Baltimore city police officers. Just a year and a half ago, it was storage space beneath the Southeastern District precinct when Pearson and his colleagues started their renovations, turning it into a state-of-the-art gym.

"What you see today is a lot of hours an planning and just a lot of groups coming together, a lot of tradespeople donating their time to come together with a common cause of building something great for the police officers," Baltimore City police Officer Dave Sherman said.

Sherman did a lot of the work with his own hands, installing two new bathrooms, a locker room and a kitchenette attached to the main gym. In addition to workout equipment, the space also provides an area to do training.

"We have wrestling mats. You can do grappling training. Also, if an officer needs assistance with arrest control-type training, instead of sending him up to our academy, which takes a while, we can go ahead and do training on a daily basis to make our officers more efficient and effective," Baltimore City police Lt. Brian Pearson said.

The renovations also include a new garage to process cars and a community pavilion for staff meetings and functions. The majority of the money for all of the renovations came from community and corporate donations. Officers said having a gym will help them stay in shape to do their jobs.

"I believe you should be healthy and physically fit to be able to perform the duties of the police officer," Officer Lynea Wiley said. "You have to be able to move quickly on this job you have to be able to keep up with some of the younger crowd as far as running after them."

But beyond that, officers said it boosts morale and confidence and that will help keep the streets of Baltimore safer.

"This really wasn't so much about a gym as it is an investment in our officers. If we invest in our officers and we take care of them mind, body, spirit, they're going to do better on the street be more proactive so they'll make it a better safer Baltimore," Pearson said.

The next on the project list: Turning the old jail cells into a new detective work area.
