Law enforcement trick-or-treats alongside locals – WJHG

SPRINGFIELD, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) – This Halloween hundreds of locals in Springfield decided to trick-or-treat alongside law enforcement.

The Springfield Police Department kicked off its second annual Fall Festival Tuesday at Buddy McLemore Park.

“Instead of being out on the streets going door to door, maybe take a chance of a child getting run over and getting hurt, give them a safe place over here to come and have a good time,” Springfield Police Chief Barry Roberts said.

The event gives families an opportunity to safely trick or treat with their little ones.

“Usually in the neighborhoods it’s too crowded, people are getting almost pushy and cars coming in and out,” said Shannon Drake, a local parent.

The Halloween celebration isn’t just about passing out candy. Law enforcement from different areas got to interact with the community.

“If you need

Valley teens learn about careers in law enforcement, medical response

WEYERS CAVE, Va. (WHSV) — Students from more than a dozen high schools are learning about jobs in law enforcement and emergency medical response from the professionals themselves.

Blue Ridge Community College partnered with the Central Shenandoah Criminal Justice Training Academy to invite local authorities and first response teams to talk with a group of teens about a wide range of subjects — including crime scene investigation, cyber security, forensics and the correctional system.

One of the top goals of the program is to get students thinking about a possible career before graduation.

A focus on law enforcement is particularly relevant, amid reports of unfilled positions at Virginia police stations.

Andrew McNally, the director of the Central Shenandoah Criminal Justice Training Academy, says there’s been a drop in the pool of applicants for law enforcement positions.

“It’s kind of harder to find people who want to go into law enforcement,” he said, “with

GNTC offering drone classes for law enforcement students

From tracking weather to handling traffic situations, drones are allowing authorities to have eyes on areas they would not usually be able to access easily.

Because of this Georgia Northwestern Technical College has purchased two new DJI-series Phantom drones and is training law enforcement students to use them in the field.

GNTC Criminal Justice Technology Director Tony Adams, who has over 13 years field experience with Georgia’s State Board of Pardons and Paroles, said these unmanned and compact remote-controlled vehicles are helping change the way many departments are getting their jobs done.

“As more and more departments deploy drones they continue to prove their value,” added Adams. “They provide incredible situational awareness to emergency services teams. Police officers, fire fighters, and SWAT teams across the country use drones for search and rescue, crime scene investigation, accident investigation, criminal pursuit, forest fire tracking, and damage assessment. Drones are not just toys or flying cameras.”

Summertime Blues: MISD middle-schoolers get inside look at leadership and law enforcement with MPD Teen Academy

“What did you do this summer?”

It’ll be asked a million times this week as kids head back to class and bid farewell to June, July and August. For many, the responses will be filled with the typical summer fare: swimming, family vacations, binge-watching shows on Netflix…just hanging out.

But, for a few McKinney ISD middle-schoolers, summer break offered something fresh and truly unique – the McKinney Police Department Teen Academy.

This summer marked the third year for the week-long Teen Academy, a program that gives kids a chance to develop leadership and teamwork skills as well as an opportunity to learn more about the various facets of law enforcement in two basic academy settings (June 12-16, 26-30) and an advanced academy (July 10-13).

Organized and run by the police department’s twelve school resource officers (SRO) and supervising Sgt. Dave Rodriguez, the summer academy introduced students to McKinney police officers in various divisions such

Trooper Youth Week gives students a taste of law enforcement training

SEA GIRT — Trooper Youth Week, five days of grueling training for high school juniors, isn’t for the faint of heart.

Ask any of the 138 young men and women who opted to forego cell phones and other electronics to instead choose to experience life as a recruit for the New Jersey State Police.

For those who graduated the 104th class of Trooper Youth Week on Friday, the long hours, taxing drills and classroom lectures was worth giving up a sliver of their summer – and their favorite pastimes.

“It’s a life-changing thing and I’m glad I’ve chosen to do it,” said Dyon Womack, 17, of Howell.

Cop Camp shows kids local law enforcement

Shelby Police officers and community kids got to know each other a little better this week.

For more than 10 years,  Shelby had held two free, week-long summer camps for the community’s youth to see the people behind the badge. The department’s first week of Cop Camp hosted 20 children from the Shelby area.

Children learned about crime scene investigation, being a patrol officer and K-9s used by officers. They also got to participate in different field trips throughout the week.

The first week is dedicated to children 8- to 10-years-old. The second week for children 11- to 13-years-old starts Monday.

The genetic fingerprint and what it can do for law enforcement

Of all the different investigating techniques and technology available to law enforcement, I have always found DNA analysis to be the most interesting. There are more than 7 billion people in the world today, and each one has a unique strand of DNA that makes them who they are.

Not long ago we were notified that a DNA match was found from evidence that investigators had collected at a burglary out in the county. When we get a match like this, our next step is to collect a sample from the suspect of the possible match so the lab can confirm it is indeed the DNA of that person.

The ability to collect and analyze DNA has come a long way over the years, and for the law enforcement world it has helped dramatically when it comes to identifying evidence relating to victims and suspects. The process for getting DNA results from
