Inside the Savage Police Department’s Citizens Academy: Week 2

During the Thursday, Sept. 14 Savage Police Department’s Citizens Academy, we learned how to dust for fingerprints. We used empty soda bottles, like this one, to check for prints left behind.

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

A rapist left his dentures behind at the crime scene. His name was written inside but no one looked.

The 2001 attack was vicious. In August, an 31-year-old Memphis woman was walking along Thomas Street, an empty stretch of road drilling through an industrial area north of downtown. A man approached, forced her off the road, and stabbed a metal object up under her chin so hard it stuck to the roof of her mouth. Then according to Memphis’s Fox 40, the unknown assailant forced the unnamed victim to perform oral sex.

When police arrived at the scene, they found an odd piece of evidence the rapist had forgotten: his dentures.

Along with other physical evidence from the assault, the false teeth were reportedly bagged and placed in a Memphis Police Department property room. There, like an estimated hundreds of thousands of rape kits across the country, the material sat untouched for more than a decade.

Until last summer, when Memphis authorities

A ROYAL Bahamas Police Force crime scene investigator yesterday testified to having taken swabs of suspected blood samples from multiple parts of the interior of a vehicle allegedly belonging to Kofhe Goodman, the man accused of 11-year-old Marco Archer’s murder five and a half years ago.

Taking the stand before Justice Carolita Bethell on the second day of Goodman’s Court of Appeal-mandated retrial, Detective Corporal Jermaine Stubbs said he saw suspected bloodstains on the panel of the trunk of a white 1998 Nissan Maxima, licence plate number 250529 and registered to Barbara Goodman, while conducting a search in 2011.

Det Cpl Stubbs also said he noticed various household cleaning liquids in the back seat of the car, as well as two cell phones on the car’s floor well. The officer said he also took swabs from one of

CSI Point Park: an inside look at the crime scene lab

Academic Hall classrooms can normally be seen filled with living, breathing humans, but 508 Academic is the opposite.

This classroom is specifically designed for students to study the deceased… or, in this case, dummies.

“This allows anyone who is going into criminal justice, forensic science or law to actually have an idea of what it’s like to step onto a crime scene,” Assistant Professor of forensic science Edward Strimlan said.

The classroom (coined the crime scene lab) is structured to look like a house on the exterior, fully equipped with a window and set of double doors covered with crime tape.

Entering the room, with a partial shingled roof passing overhead, reveals a full classroom to the right surrounded by a red curtain. Hidden behind the curtains are three rooms set-up to mimic different crime scenes for forensic science students:

The civil war inside the White House press room

Good morning. Here’s our morning roundup of all the media news you need to know. Want to get this briefing in your inbox every morning? Subscribe here.

Floaters are shadows cast on your retina — unless you’re a White House correspondent. In that case, “floaters” are a discomforting sign of Trump-era media changes right in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room.

As a New Yorker piece underscores, journalist floaters are reporters (or pseudo-reporters) who have White House credentials but are not assigned a permanent seat by the White House Correspondents’ Association. If a seat is free at the start of a briefing, first come, first served.

Writer Andrew Marantz, reporting as if a foreign correspondent in a strange land of befuddling mores, captures how “until recently, the more established White House correspondents have regarded floaters as a harmless distraction — the equivalent of letting a batboy sit in the dugout.
