Like every part of the city, you will find wonderful restaurants along this 6-mile stretch of antique stores, art galleries, craft shops, upscale boutiques, and spas. The park offers a running track, a world-famous zoo, riding stables, and an executive golf co...
Electronic live-scan capture of fingerprints has eliminated many of the messy problems that irritated officers using ink on paper, and fingerprint capture software has supplemented the officer's judgment of fingerprint quality so more attention can be paid to officer safety during the booking process. Warm fingers on cold glass cause a halo effect ("haloes"), condensation formed on the glass from temperature differentials which causes noise around the finger. The live-scan system fingerprin...
While most assume the clamps are only used by law enforcement and security agencies, they are often used by vehicle owners to protect their own vehicle, especially recreation vehicles and boat trailers. According to CFO Wolfson the Denver Boot is also popular with private industry in securing construction trailers or other unattended vehicles.\n Due to the simplicity of design, the Alpha Lock is very popular with the trailer / construction equipment rental and sales fields.

Meyer said he makes personal contacts with other chiefs at the county and state chiefs associations and works with his senior staff officers to handle most problems, but one time he had a specific and perplexing problem, so he used another chief as a mentor to help resolve the problem. The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) has established a formal mentoring program for new chiefs.
A steering committee made up of liaisons from each agency was established, and that committee met almost once a week in the beginning to put into place the policies and procedures for CART, as well as the basics, i.e., standardizing forms for neighborhood and roadblock canvas, standardized questions for sex offender interviews, developing resource manuals and training. The initial letter, outlining CART's objectives, stated clearly that the team was designed to be a short-term asset to law e...

It is open to constant interpretation, thus it is imperative that sergeants and supervisors be as up to date on court rulings, legislative changes and legal aspects that will affect what you and your officers do on a day-to-day basis. [...] it will likely involve a civil court where the suspect, or his surviving family, will have sued the officer and agency for the violation of the suspect's civil rights.
The Trinity activities are "The ILEETA Cup" shooting competition (featuring both live fire and firearms simulators, open only to ILEETA members), which was sponsored by Meggitt Defense Systems (Caswell / FATS); "The World Cop Donut Eating Championship" (open to any sworn or retired officer), which has no sponsor-yet; and, The "Flatfoot Five" 5K fun run/walk, sponsored by IES Interactive Training, which was open to anyone.

Officers King and Smith had been dispatched to handle a pickup order for a mental health examination on the suspect, who, unknown to anyone at the time, was the suspect in three other murders committed in the city earlier that day. It has taken a good portion of my 21 years in law enforcement to recognize that I, like most police officers, have failed to see the importance of healing the internal wounds created by my experiences.
Priority Three emphasis areas are distracted and drowsy drivers, young drivers, unlicensed drivers, pedestrian safety, motorcycle safety, commercial vehicle safety, head-on collisions and emergency medical services.

Lewinski has been conducting research into human performance in lethal force encounters by observing and timing suspect and officer movements with a concentration on the action / reaction parameters, most often referred to in the law enforcement profession as the "reactionary gap." Vehicle Stops A suspect with a firearm beside his right thigh while in vehicle driver's seat can draw, bring the firearm across his body and over his left shoulder, point to the rear and fire in an average time of...
Obviously, it could be useful in defending against a negligence (i.e., unreasonable carelessness) claim that the Supreme Court has held such an action to be reasonable, but the real test will come when, in an effort to overtake such a speeder, the police vehicle goes out of control and strikes and kills an innocent person. The Supreme Court has already made clear that police driving accidents do not implicate the Constitution unless the driving behavior "shocks the conscience," but, again, t...
Consider a planned event such as an outdoor concert where it's assumed the crowds will get drunken and rowdy.\n But then the concert date arrives, and busloads of people high on hallucinogens scale all the lampposts on the main drag in town, and traffic is brought to an utter standstill. For the "review" portion of the media coverage, the public information officer or the agency head should be prepared for media in attack mode.
Federal, state and local grants make up the lion's share of grant money, of course, but there are also private foundations, corporations, and local grantors who offer funding. "Private money spends differently than government dollars," and may focus on specific "targets" such as education, library resources, Internet access, health projects, etc. Even if your grant application is rejected, you may have the opportunity to propose another (so have ideas in mind!), and, at the very least, phon...
