Iraqi officers in Baltimore as part of U.S. policing tour

The streets of Baltimore are sometimes compared to a war zone. Some Iraqi police officers are getting a chance this week to find out if that's accurate.

Baltimore police are hosting a delegation of senior Iraqi National Police officials. They're on a multi-city tour to learn about urban policing in the United States.

The delegation is going on ride-alongs with officers.

On Friday, Police Commissioner Frederick Bealefeld will address the group about the importance of improving ties between officers and the community.
