BALTIMORE - Former Baltimore Police Commissioner Fred Bealefeld has a new job.

WBAL-Radio ( reported Monday he will be teaching criminal justice at Stevenson University.

Bealefeld spent the last five years as police commissioner. He says the teaching post is a great opportunity for him to continue having an impact in criminal justice.

The university says Bealefeld will serve as a full-time Distinguished Professional in Criminal Justice and Instructor.

Bealefeld is known for using the phrase "bad guys with guns" to describe his main crime-fighting focus. He says he hopes the phrase will continue to spark debate about longer sentences for men and women who commit gun crimes in Baltimore.
