Tree Huggers and Warriors
This morning I posted an article on my Facebook page written by Mary Anne Case, a Professor of Law at the University of Chicago, where she cited lessons from the 1991 Christopher Commission after the investigation into the police practices that led to the Rodney King beating by LAPD officers. In her article, she claims […]

What Slows Down Emergency Responders When Every Second Counts
A few weeks ago I was watching a “dash cam” video from one of our cars. The video came from a sergeant’s car as he was in route to intercept the pursuit of an armed robbery suspect. The sergeant’s role is to supervise the pursuit — it is his/her responsibility to make sure our policies […]

Reflecting on Sept. 11 and the Importance of First Responder Relationships
I’m sure everyone who is reading this can remember where they were and what they were doing 13 years ago today. I was on the fifth floor of Headquarters serving as acting deputy chief of the Patrol Bureau because the regular deputy chief was on vacation that week. I was looking out the window when […]

Watch and Learn
I had a speaking engagement yesterday morning with a business association. One of the topics that came up was the proliferation of panhandlers in Lincoln. The attendees told me stories about annoying and aggressive panhandlers. Some of what they described was completely legal, some illegal. Illegal panhandling is a difficult offense to prove without a […]

Heroin and Prescription Pain Meds
I attended a meeting on the state of heroin in Minnesota yesterday and believe there are still too many people that do not understand how we got to where we are today with this serious public health issue. Heroin and opiate based prescription pain pills continues to have a terrible impact on families in every […]

Heroin Epidemic
Each day, emails are sent out to our Department by the Officer-in-Charge giving a summary of the calls that occurred throughout Madison on each shift. Unfortunately, it has become rare that we don’t read about a heroin overdose or death on a regular basis. Heroin addiction is plaguing our City and the extent of heroin […]

Be Vigilant and Unafraid
As it approached midnight on December 31, 2012, I was eager to count down to the midnight hour so I could ring in the New Year. Like most people, I was ready to celebrate — but for a slightly different reason. I was watching the clock, listening to my police radio and holding my breath […]

Operation ID: Mark Your Property
By Kelsie Fraser The display of an Operation ID sticker can act as a strong theft deterrent to criminals. This is because they know that marked items can be positively identified by the owner. Criminals are also aware that ‘fences’, or receivers of stolen property are reluctant to buy marked items, for the same reasons […]

How Much Military Equipment Does AHPD Have?
Virtually none is the answer. We have about 7 ceremonial rifles used by our Honor Guard. That’s it. We’ve seen these programs come and go over the years based on what is happening with the military and what war they are or are not engaged in. We have not seen a lot of usefulness for […]

Hot Spot Policing is Making a Difference
I have written about Hot Spot Policing on this blog before, and I wanted to share with you the impact it has had in the two-plus years we’ve been doing it. At the beginning of this year, we nearly doubled the amount of personnel who work in hot spots, which are the small areas of […]
