Crime down after Hampshire police start wearing body cameras

Source: National Cyber Security - Produced By Gregory Evans

That’s the conclusion of researchers at Portsmouth University’s Institute of Criminal Justice Studies. They found that public order and assault crimes dropped by 18 per cent, from just over 1,700 to 1,400 in the year that police on the Isle of Wight were wearing cameras. It also found that assaults on police went down by a third. The 160 cameras were issued to officers on the Island on 1 July 2013 and the detailed study evaluated the year prior to the issue of BWVs and the year after. Five hundred more body-worn BWV cameras will be rolled out to frontline officers in Hampshire over the next three months and the effects of that on crime rates will also be evaluated by the University of Portsmouth. Hampshire Police and Crime Commissioner Simon Hayes said: ’This report identifies clear benefits to victims of crime, plus officers, and should be of some reassurance to society as a whole. In particular, outcomes for victims of domestic abuse on the Island appear to have been significantly improved as a result of evidence captured through BWV.” The impact the cameras had on public order and assault was quite impressive – a sure sign that they are […]

Source: National Cyber Security - Produced By Gregory Evans

Mr Baird pledged to recruit an additional 310 officers, bringing the authorised strength number to 17,000. The Premier also said 250 of the officers would be trained as serious crime investigators. The Counter Terrorism and Special Tactics Command would get an additional 50 detectives, along with the Child Abuse Squad. While visiting the Mount Druitt Police Station in Sydney’s west today, Mr Baird also promised to invest $100 million over four years in new policing technology. “This package delivers more specialist police investigators to target the most serious offences and technology to make police work safer and quicker,” he said. The funds would go towards providing police with body-worn video cameras, tablet computers and mobile fingerprint scanners. Mr Baird’s government also promised a new police station for Mt Druitt. “This building is 40 years old and is in generally poor condition,” Police Minister Stuart Ayres said. “We’re committed to providing police with the state-of-the-art facilities they need to get on and do the job they do best.” However, Labor said the Premier’s promise on police numbers was a re-announcement of an earlier pledge. Shadow treasurer Michael Daley said in 2012 the Coalition promised to boost police numbers by 309 officers, […]

A hacker named “Bitcoin Baron” has claimed responsibility for cyberattacking the City of San Marcos and San Marcos Police Department websites in retaliation against a police officer who allegedly assaulted a Texas State University student in 2013. The websites were down as of Tuesday morning. “I am here to say you’re out of line and I’m going to attack your site nonstop until I know Palermo is going to prison for a long time for what he’s done to this lady Alexis Alpha,” the supposed hacker claims in a video posted to YouTube on Monday. Ex-San Marcos Cpl. John A. Palermo pleaded guilty in January to one charge of aggravated assault by a public servant for attacking Alpha, then a 22-year-old Texas State University student, after she walked near his police car while Palermo was conducting a traffic stop in May 2013. The encounter left her with broken teeth, bruises and a concussion. Palermo received 10 years of probation and deferred adjudication in lieu of a conviction for the second degree felony, according to Hays County court records.

Police launch cyber squad to target online crime in Yorkshire

Source: National Cyber Security - Produced By Gregory Evans

Yorkshire’s biggest force is making a number of two-year appointments for a new unit set up to target the “rapidly expanding” network of technologically-savvy fraudsters, bullies, groomers and hackers. The recruits – paid up to £28,389 and expected to be in position by the end of next month – will be responsible for providing tactical support and advice to cyber crime investigators as well as developing new technology and strategies. Detective Chief Inspector Andy Williams, West Yorkshire Police’s cyber-crime lead, said: “This area of criminality is rapidly expanding and the establishment of a cyber-crime team puts us in the best position to combat this emerging threat. “The new team will be led by a detective inspector, who’s already in place, with a detective sergeant expected to be appointed shortly and six specialist support staff. “The detailed knowledge provided by this team will significantly enhance our current expertise across all areas of cyber criminality.” The recruitment drive coincides with a week-long campaign to raise awareness over the dangers of cyber crime. It comes after a study by campaign group Get Safe Online found 58 per cent of people in Yorkshire had been victims of cyber-crime and were left feeling “violated” by […]

Police scrap anti-violence poster that looked like it showed an officer beating a person with a riot stick as they begged for mercy

A police force has scrapped an anti-violence poster after Twitter users said it showed an officer with a riot stick hitting a victim begging for mercy.  The image was supposed to promote a campaign to stop drunk and violent people entering pubs and clubs. But Twitter users quickly pointed out that the logo looked more like police brutality – claiming it appeared to show a riot officer beating a prone victim. Paul Cruikshank tweeted ‘@DC-Police @euanmccolm How many drunk people the Dept’s arrested have had a helmet on and carrying a truncheon?’. Police replied that it was ‘meant to show one drunk person attacking another, which often happens when drinkers go overboard’. But this met with a response from Phil Ellery, who tweeted ‘@DC-Police a drunk person wearing a riot helmet and carrying a truncheon?’. Amazingly, the image can be downloaded from a number of clip-art websites, including pubzi and clker, by searching for the term ‘police brutality’. A Devon and Cornwall spokesman said today that the force had ‘taken on board feedback from the public’ and has decided to remove the image. He said the campaign, which started in South Devon and is now being rolled out in Plymouth, cut […]

You’ve Probably Never Heard of America’s Worst Police Force

Puerto Rico University Strike

Source: National Cyber Security - Produced By Gregory Evans

On the evening of August 11, 2007, several members of the Punta Santiago Scooter Club volunteered to serve as escorts for a 15-year-old girl celebrating her quinceañera. The yellow-shirted club members’ parked scooters partially blocked traffic on Highway 3, a two-lane road outside the eastern Puerto Rican town of Humacao. Miguel Cáceres Cruz, a 43-year-old member of the club and a father of three, was helping to direct traffic when a police car tried to pass. According to witnesses and police, the cops exchanged rude words with Cáceres, after which three officers got out of the car. In a shaky hand-held video, Cáceres can be seen backing away from the officers as they quickly approach him. He walks backward onto a sidewalk, where he backs into a wall. One of the officers, Javier Pagán Cruz, lunges toward Cáceres. The two tussle and Cáceres falls to the ground. The video briefly pans away, but when it comes back to the scene, Cáceres is beneath Pagán, holding on to the officer’s leg, possibly trying to keep him from pulling his gun out of the holster. As the two men struggle, shouts from a large crowd of onlookers can be heard. Then a […]
