Members of the board will meet regularly with the commissioner to ensure that families continue to have a voice at the highest levels of the department, reflecting the commissioner’s commitment that all life is sacred,” the department said in a news release. Daphne Alston, a creator of Mothers of Murdered Sons & Daughters, said in the release that she wants the group “to address the impact that violence has had on our lives and to see that another parent does not experience the pain of burying a child.”It’s the seventh such committee the department has created to improve relations with city residents; the others are African-American, Latino, LGBT, youth and business boards.

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 […]

New technology helps Vancouver police predict future crimes

00_25_van_predictivepolicing_contributed

Better think twice before committing a crime – the Vancouver Police Department might already be on its way to apprehend you. This year the force will finish implementing a “predictive policing” tool that uses data to forecast the movement of crime and allows officers to deploy to hot spots based on when crime will likely occur, police Chief Jim Chu told city council Tuesday. The idea is the presence of police will reduce the amount of crime that actually happens, Chu said. It may sound like a gimmick from Minority Report (the futuristic Tom Cruise movie where psychics helped police arrest murderers before they killed), but the mapping tool installed on mobile computers in patrol cruisers is apparently quite effective. The tool is 60 to 70 per cent accurate within a 150-metre radius at one-hour intervals, Chu said. It displays what will happen in the next eight to 12 hours. The VPD started incorporating the technology in 2014, according to police board reports. It is incorporated into GeoDash, the mobile information system that lets officers check out locations of recent crimes without leaving their cars. The data is updated on a daily basis so it’s easy to spot trends in […]

Michael Silvene spent more than seven minutes shuffling among checkout lanes allowing other customers to go ahead of him, but Miramar police say he wasn’t being courteous. He allegedly was waiting for the crowd to clear so he could shop with counterfeit credit cards. Silvene, 28, of Miami, is facing 13 charges for possessing 11 altered credit cards, jail records show. Two Miramar police detectives happened to be in the Wal-Mart at 1800 S. University Dr. about 5 p.m. Wednesday investigating an unrelated case when the store’s loss prevention officer directed their attention to Silvene. The detectives watched as video surveillance cameras followed Silvene. He was pacing between lanes 18 and 19 with a Wal-Mart bag over his shoulder, looking around in a suspicious manner, according to the arrest report. They zoomed in on his hands and saw several gift cards in the bag he was holding. He was seen picking up a pack of chewing gum and letting customers pass him in line while he talked on a cellphone, the report stated. When Silvene finally went to the cashier to pay for the gum at 5:18 p.m., the first card he used was rejected. He removed four more credit […]

The truth about police use of LPRs: What citizens need to know

Vigilant-LPR-300x263

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

License plate readers have been an increasingly useful device for law enforcement in the investigation of crimes ranging from auto theft to rape to murder. Perhaps as a consequence of that success, groups like the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) have put LPRs in their crosshairs, pressing for legislation at the state, local, and federal level, which may soon endanger the future of LPRs. In essence, these groups are linking citizens’ privacy fears, driven by the Edward Snowden and National Security Agency (NSA) matter, with photographs of license plates that are required by law to be publicly displayed. As these groups gain momentum, industry experts have begun to educate the public that such arguments against LPRs are like comparing apples to oranges. “We all need to fully understand the facts about LPRs and be able to discuss how it works. This technology is not used for dark and nefarious reasons and it does not infiltrate the private lives of everyday citizens,” said Brian Shockley, Vice President of Marketing of Vigilant Solutions. What LPR Technology Is (and What It Isn’t)  Shockley told PoliceOne that arguments against the use of LPRs are “perverting the truth and […]

Scunthorpe police using tablet computers to tackle crime

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A STALWART of Humberside Police, Sergeant James Main has been witness to a host of changes to the force during his years of service. Now, faced with major restructuring that will reduce the number of officers in the region, it would be easy for him to feel sceptical about serving the people of North Lincolnshire. But, quite to the contrary, he feels confident that the public will see “key benefits” thanks to a particular piece of equipment he and his colleagues have been armed with. This quiet confidence comes from the introduction of mobile technology for officers, which Sergeant Main, pictured, says will mean better “visibility” and huge amounts of time saved. These laptops, which double up as tablets, mean that officers can check and update police systems while out and about. For example, an officer called to a burglary could update police logs and carry out administrative tasks while they are with the victim – rather than having to return to the station. Talking through the benefits of the new system, Sergeant Main said: “The whole concept is that it is a mobile desktop. Everything we do in the police station on the computer we can do on the […]
