BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore officials are announcing new trauma-informed waiting rooms at the police department’s headquarters.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake will join Commissioner Kevin Davis for the unveiling of the first room on Wednesday.

The trauma-informed victim-centered interview room is in the department’s Special Investigations Section. The rooms are specially painted, designed and arranged to make victims of trauma feel calm, comfortable and safe. Additionally, there are child-friendly active areas for children.

The unveiling will take place at the department’s headquarters at noon.
