Please avoid smashing windows out of cars based on shared Facebook postings
No, I have not been answering messages on FB. No, I am not locked in a hot car in Houston. Yes, I normally answer messages as soon as possible, but you try flying around the country while pleasant flight attendants use a plunger to drive your “SFYOBIASTSOASGSC” (Sorry Fifty-four Year Old Body Into A Seat […]

Unique dataset
Open data is the rage in policing these days, spurred on by the White House Police Open Data Initiative, which sprang to life after the release of the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing report. A handful of early adopters contributed some of their data to the portal, which is now hosted by the […]

The Job is Harder Now….!
During a recent week of viewing briefing notes, I had to pause to consider the modern-era challenges confronting our MPD officers. On a regular basis, my officers are investigating child sexual assaults, substantial crimes against persons, and “shots fired” incidents; responding to overdoses; attempting to locate individuals with dementia who go missing; “pinging” cell phones […]

Create a Team of Truth Tellers
It makes me absolutely insane when people come to me for advice or my opinion and when I provide it, they spend the rest of the conversation trying to convince me I’m wrong. I often find myself uttering in frustration, “Why did you ask for my opinion if you don’t like my answer?” Maybe they […]

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 […]

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 […]
