Media Crosshairs and Wars of Words
I made a mistake in affixing a complaint about a journalist to a singular incident. Because of this error, the message was lost in translation and was interpreted as an attack on journalists who file Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. The latter is not the case, and I believe that my transparency on behalf […]

Hot Cops
Having had the pleasure writing and administering a fairly successful Facebook page sometimes brings me to read between 10 and 100 messages a day. I try to answer them all, at least with that little blue thumb that indicates to the sender that the message has been read. Over the last week, I have been […]

No Absolutes in Law Enforcement
Recently, a Roseville Police Department policy was the subject of conversation at a meeting, but I was not afforded the opportunity to explain the wording of a certain sentence in our manual. I decided to address it in this week’s “One Chief’s Perspective.” One of the benefits of being a law enforcement officer is the […]

The KCPD does not sanction any demonstration events. In regard to a protest on Aug. 19, 2017, we never asked for any assistance from any militia group, nor would […]

Lincoln is in the process of acquiring a new public safety radio system. The new system is from Motorola, and is a P25 trunked system, which is inherently digital. Since it is a digital radio system, encryption is easy to implement. It is our intention to use encryption to protect law enforcement-sensitive transmissions. We do […]
