Emergency Dispatchers Do Great Work And Are Appreciated
Relegated to my office, I was advised there was an individual who had just jumped off the Veteran’s Memorial Bridge. If you live or travel through Bangor or Brewer, Maine, you know the bridge is high, the Penobscot River is tidal, cold, and is currently sporting ice chunks the size of small boats. The response […]

Our community of South Fayette Township is a wonderful place to live, work and enjoy family and friends, but that doesn’t make us immune to difficult issues that are facing most communities across the country.

Revisiting bullying in the workplace
I have said publicly many times over the last several months how important it is that the members of KCPD are OK. And I mean OK physically, mentally, emotionally and many other ways. Because if they’re not OK in some way, it can affect their own safety and the service they provide. We want capable […]

Immigration: “Investigative Necessity”
My grandbabies, Florence and Miguel V, are brown. Their father, Miguel IV, immigrated to this great nation from Guadalajara, Mexico. I could not be more proud of Miguel, Steffenie and the babies. At two Florence can speak English and Spanish. Well actually Florence speaks Spanglish. Her first word was “besos,” Spanish for kiss. This was […]

Immigration Issues and MPD: Affirming our Values Through Our Code of Conduct and a New SOP
As Chief, I am frequently contacted with suggestions from those who want to influence MPD policies and procedures; suggestions for new initiatives and calls for the dismantling of current protocols. These come to me through concerted letter writing campaigns, coordinated emails, community forums, via our elected officials, the legislative process, budgetary square-off’s, provocative media reports, […]

Discretion and Policing
I often discuss the importance of officers using good discretion in their daily work. When I refer to using discretion, I am referring to petty and minor violations, not crimes of violence, where victims are concerned or of serious or dangerous nature. An example of a discretionary act was when an elderly driver pulled out […]

Training / A Method To Our Madness
Recently, we’ve done some training that has gained local media attention: The Active Shooter Training we did in the Dodge County Courthouse in December, and the Simulation Training (shoot/no shoot scenarios) that we did last week. The majority of responses we heard about our efforts were very positive. However, I also heard a few critical […]
