ALBANY, N.Y. — A New York has died after a battle with an aggressive form of cancer.

The Times Union reports that 37-year-old Albany Detective Kevin Meehan died from the disease on Wednesday. Meehan was a 13-year veteran of the Albany PD.

Meehan was a member of the Albany PD’s tactical team and community response unit. Acting Police Chief Robert Sears said Mehan served the city he grew up in with “distinction, pride and the highest level of integrity.”

I'm saddened to hear about the passing of @albanypolice officer Kevin Meehan after a battle with cancer. As one of Albany's Finest, he heeded the call to serve and protect the people of #Albany, and for that I and many others are grateful. Rest in peace Detective Meehan.

— Owusu Anane (@Anane4Albany) February 22, 2018

"He always hoped to give back his community," Sears said in a statement. "When he became a police officer, he was able to touch many lives, and was always willing to help a fellow neighbor in need. He truly possessed the many great qualities that we as a community expect of our police officers."

On Thursday, Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan ordered flags at all city buildings to be flown half-staff in honor of Meehan, according to WRBG. In March, a 60-mile run was organized to raise funds to help with lodging and travel expenses for Meehan as he sought treatment.

Meehan leaves behind his wife, mother, two sisters and a brother, who was a part of the Albany PD’s neighborhood engagement unit.

Video shows fatal OIS of suspect who pointed gun at officers

Police One - 15 min 34 sec ago

By PoliceOne Staff

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A North Carolina police department released video of an officer-involved shooting of a man who reportedly pointed a gun at officers.

WBTV reports that on April 2016, police received a call about a man attempting suicide. When Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrived, they tried to tell Sylasone Ackhavong, 41, to put his gun down.

Police said Ackhavong was “acting irrationally” and waving his gun around in a 7-Eleven parking lot. After an hour-long standoff, the suspect pointed his gun at officers, prompting SWAT officers to shoot him.

"At some point during the conversation the subject swung his arm forward, raising the gun and pointing it at one of our officers," said Chief Kerr Putney. "Two of our SWAT officers fired rounds striking the subject."

Ackhavong was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. Police said the suspect was wearing body armor at the time of the shooting.

Putney said the CMPD responded to more than 12,000 mental illness call last year, which resulted in 1,000 calls a month.

"Our problem is when it comes to the split second of you're trying to survive an encounter all that training goes out the window because we lose the opportunity that we want to deescalate," Putney said. "There lies our struggle."

The two SWAT officers, Olin Lester and Derek Rud, were placed on administrative leave following the shooting, which is standard procedure. The Mecklenburg County District Attorney’s Office determined the officers’ actions were lawful, according to WJZY.

Ex-officer convicted of trying to aid Islamic State sentenced

Police One - 23 min ago

By Matthew Barakat Associated Press

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — A former transit-agency police officer was sentenced to 15 years in prison Friday after being convicted in a sting operation of attempting to help the Islamic State group.

Nicholas Young, 38, of Fairfax, Virginia, became the first law-enforcement officer in the country to be convicted of a terrorism offense when a federal jury found him guilty in December on charges including obstruction of justice and attempting to provide material support to a terrorist group.

Young had been a patrol officer in the D.C. region's Metrorail system and was known as "Officer Friendly" at the Takoma Park station where he was assigned.

But the Muslim convert had been under surveillance going back at least as far as 2010. He was friends with Zachary Chesser, another convert who was sentenced to 25 years in prison for trying to join the al-Shabab terrorist group in Somalia and for making threats against the creators of the "South Park" cartoon series for episodes he deemed insulting to the Prophet Muhammad.

In 2016, Young purchased more than $200 in gift cards he believed would be used to purchase mobile-phone apps the Islamic State could use to communicate securely. In reality, though, Young's Islamic State connection was an FBI informant.

Young apologized for his conduct in a letter to the judge, but said he only bought the gift cards because he wanted to support a person he thought was a friend. At Friday's sentencing hearing, Young said he was prosecuted only after he refused an FBI offer to be an informant. At trial, Young's lawyers argued unsuccessfully that the sting operation amounted to entrapment.

"I have never desired or encouraged any act of terrorism in this country, not now, not ever," Young wrote.

But prosecutor Gordon Kromberg said Young's explanations of his conduct are disingenuous.

"The only time he was ever asked to help ISIS, he accepted," Kromberg said. The FBI informant, known to Young as "Mo," had told Young that the gift cards were needed because the Islamic State was losing fighters, and they needed the gift cards to recruit more fighters by communicating with them securely through purchase of a specific mobile-phone app.

Kromberg said Young engaged in a litany of bad conduct over the years, including travel to Libya, where prosecutors say Young served with a militant group that hadn't been officially designated a terrorist group. In addition, he said Young trafficked in Nazi memorabilia that flowed from anti-Semitic views that meshed with his embrace of militant Islam. He noted that Young was stockpiling body armor and thousands of rounds of ammunition, and that he engaged in conversations about smuggling weapons into a federal courthouse to free a Muslim prisoner, as well as attacking FBI headquarters.

"What happened in July 2016 (with the gift card purchase) was not an aberration, not something out of character for the defendant," Kromberg said.

Judge Leonie Brinkema said the evidence about Young's stockpiling of weapons and his comments about violence made the case "particularly troublesome." The 15-year sentence she imposed largely fell in line with other terror-related sentences imposed at the courthouse in recent years. Neither prosecutors nor the defense offered a specific recommendation to the judge.

Renewed push for armed officer at every NY school

Police One - 32 min 43 sec ago

By Chris Carola Associated Press

ALBANY, N.Y. — A New York sheriff's group and a state Senate Republican are pushing to have an armed police officer at every school in the state in the wake of the Florida high school shooting that left 17 dead.

What isn't clear yet is who would foot the bill for placing an armed officer at each of the more than 6,700 public and private school buildings.

The New York State Sheriffs' Association this week called on the Legislature to include funding in the next state budget for at least one armed school resource officer at every grade school and high school, which could run into the hundreds of millions of dollars.

There are about 4,500 school buildings in the 733 public school districts across the state. Private schools have about 2,000 buildings, according to the sheriff's group.

Opponents of the plan point out that an armed officer didn't stop last week's massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The school had one armed resource officer who never entered the school.

Republican Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Friday called for a trained law enforcement officer in every school in Florida by the time the 2018 school year begins.

School resource officers, or SROs, are typically local sheriff's deputies or police officers. The number of SROs has dropped in recent years from about 400 to fewer than 200 full-time officers, the sheriff's said. An SRO's salary and benefits — which can range from $75,000 to $100,000 — is picked up by the school district, county government, or shared by both.

In New York City, enhanced security measures for the city's 1,800 school buildings include active shooter drills to be held by mid-March and random screening by metal detectors at all middle and high schools. Legislation to put an armed officer in every New York City school passed the Republican-controlled state Senate last year, but didn't pass in the Democratic-controlled Assembly.

"It's important that we consider additional steps to protect students while they are at school and away from their families, and anything we can do to improve security has to be right at the top of that list," said Scott Reif, a spokesman for the Senate's GOP majority.

Sen. Patrick Gallivan, a western New York Republican who's a former state trooper and Erie County sheriff, wants to see state-funded SROs in every school in the state.

"It is time to expand this program statewide, so that every school benefits from having a trained law-enforcement officer on-site," Gallivan said.

Carl Heastie, speaker of the Democrat-controlled Assembly, is against the proposal and pointed out that having a trained armed officer on the premises didn't prevent last week's slaughter.

"More guns will not make us safer," said Heastie, a Bronx Democrat. "We need to be talking about real solutions, and we need to pass common sense gun reforms that the majority of Americans support."

The fact that the Broward County sheriff's deputy assigned to the school didn't enter the building to engage the shooter shouldn't reflect badly on efforts to put SROs in every New York school, according to an upstate sheriff.

"The actions of that officer notwithstanding, it's still a good proposition," said Jeff Murphy, sheriff in rural Washington County. "This would provide us with positive interaction with students while also having an officer there who could respond to a threat."

A less costly option to full-time SROs would be to hire retired law enforcement officers, according to the New York State School Boards Association, which said each school district should determine its own security and safety needs.

"What works in one community may not work in another," said David Albert, the organization's spokesman. "School boards should make the decision locally, in conjunction with students, teachers and the community."

Hundreds of accidental 911 calls being placed from Apple repair center

Police One - 37 min 54 sec ago

By PoliceOne Staff

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — An investigation is looking into reports of hundreds of accidental 911 calls being made from an Apple repair center.

The Sacramento Bee reported that an estimate of 1,600 accidental 911 calls have been made over the past five months by Apple products, with the calls coming in around 20 times a day.

Elk Grove Police Department spokesperson Jason Jimenez said the calls were traced to a cell tower close to the Apple campus, and the calls don’t show any service provider information as normal cellphone calls do.

Dispatchers also said that when they answer, they hear “people talking about Apple.”

"When the line is open, there's no sound of a struggle or an emergency," Jimenez said.

“911 is a lifeline for everyone in our community, so having these lines open and available is paramount and so getting this problem resolved,” he said. “Public safety is not in danger and we are working with Apple to resolve the issue.”

"The times when it’s greatly impacting us is when we have other emergencies happening and we may have a dispatcher on another 911 call that may have to put that call on hold,” dispatcher Jamie Hudson said.

Apple said they are working on fixing the issue.

“We take this seriously and we are working closely with local law enforcement to investigate the cause and ensure this doesn’t continue,” a spokesperson said.

Jimenez urged the public that “public safety is not jeopardized” at this time.

Trump: Fla. LEO who didn't stop gunman 'certainly did a poor job'

Police One - 2 hours 17 min ago

By Ken Thomas and Jill Colvin Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Urging the arming of many teachers and school security guards, President Donald Trump said Friday the armed officer who didn't stop the gunman who carried out last week's Florida massacre was either a "coward" or "didn't react properly under pressure."

Departing the White House for the Conservative Political Action Conference, Trump told reporters that "when it came time to get in there and do something," Florida deputy Scot Peterson "didn't have the courage or something happened."

"He certainly did a poor job, there's no question about that," Trump said. He repeated his criticism at the conference.

Long supported by the National Rifle Association, the president has sought to maintain his backing among gun rights activists even as he has called for strengthening background checks and raising the minimum age for purchasing semi-automatic rifles in the wake of the mass killing.

Turning to this year's elections, Trump told conservative activists at CPAC that Republicans must not be complacent in the fall midterms, warning of terrible consequences if Democrats take control of Congress.

Trump predicted Democrats would "take away those massive tax cuts," referencing to his signature tax law signed in December, "and they will take away your Second Amendment." Trump then surveyed the audience of conservatives on which issue was more important to them, and listened as the crowd cheered loudly in support of the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

Basking in the glow of some of his most hard-core supporters, Trump argued that his administration has kept his campaign promises, boasting as he often does that he "had the most successful first year in the history of the presidency."

And he re-aired themes from his 2016 campaign, citing a "very crooked media, we had a crooked candidate, too, by the way," referencing former Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. The crowd chanted, "lock her up," a common refrain at Trump campaign rallies.

Trump's speech at CPAC came at the end of a week that included meetings with students and teachers and state and local officials on ways to bolster school safety and address gun violence. Trump said the "evil massacre" of 17 people at a Florida high school last week had "broken our hearts."

Trump said designating schools as "gun-free zones" puts students in "far more danger." He reiterated his push for "gun-adept teachers and coaches" to be able to carry concealed firearms and said it was "time to make our schools a much harder target for attackers — we don't want them in our schools."

If a teacher had been carrying a concealed firearm at the Florida school, "the teacher would have shot the hell out of him before he knew what happened," Trump said.

Officials announced Thursday that deputy Scot Peterson never went inside to engage the gunman at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while the shooting was underway. Peterson has resigned.

"It was a real shot to the police department," Trump said before leaving the White House. "This could have been prevented."

LAPD: 45 Day Video Release Is Wrong

Law Officer - 2 hours 49 min ago

I like LAPD Chief Charlie Beck and the Los Angeles Police Department and despite all of the unfair criticism, it is a very good police department.  From the DARE Program to many others, they have set the bar for law enforcement across the Nation.

The major problem with the Los Angeles Police Department is the frenzied media and so called “activists” that will not let the agency so much as look at someone from afar without literally freaking out and alleging racism, sexism and whatever other “ism” is the word of the day in LA LA Land.

Chief Beck has recently announced his retirement and I can’t blame the guy.  Rarely can he go into public without some crazy person with a protest sign screaming at him.

If it wasn’t for the most prestigious baseball franchise on the Planet, the Los Angeles Dodgers, I would tell LAPD to pack it up and let the screaming sign carrying activists police the city but then again a job must be done and with that job comes public perception, transparency, community engagement and a city that will host the 2018 World Series Champion Dodgers.

Breaking from a policy to never release video footage, there is a proposal for the Los Angeles Police Department to release video footage including body camera footage within 45 days.

That is too long.

The proposed policy gives the Chief the authority to release it sooner and he must.  A delay in releasing video only fuels those that tend to hate law enforcement and gives the media and their cohorts time to promulgate a false narrative against a fine law enforcement agency.

The Courageous Leadership Institute and it’s popular “Courageous Leadership” Seminar advocates for quick release of video along with a narrative that gives context to the video.  Chief Beck wants the 45 days to put that together but that it too long and the haters are already rallying to fight any narrative that the police may give, which is strange considering the police are the only ones that know what actually happened following an event.

Just as LAPD has led the country in other excellent programs, they should model the professional and timely release of video footage.  They should also release as much video as they can that shows the excellent work of their officers.  Currently, law enforcement releases video that is asked for by the media and they aren’t exactly asking for videos that display law enforcement in a positive fashion.

It is time that the Los Angeles Police Department and all of law enforcement go on the offensive and release video footage highlighting just how good police officers are.  That idea is long past due and will do more to silence the cop haters than any marketing campaign could ever do.

Video shows NYPD officers fatally shooting knife-wielding man

Police One - 3 hours 14 min ago

By Rocco Parascandola New York Daily News

NEW YORK — A knife-wielding Bronx man who was fatally shot by cops last month spent his final frantic seconds advancing on two NYPD officers, according to body-cam video the department showed to reporters Thursday.

The footage was recorded during a Jan. 29 nighttime encounter at Prospect Ave. and E. 181st St. in Belmont.

The street was too dark to allow for a clear view of the suspect, Michael Hansford, 52, as he chased his landlord around a parked car, at which point police show up.

But officers from the 48th Precinct are heard telling Hansford 22 times to drop the “Rambo-style knife” he was brandishing, said Insp. Kevin Maloney, who heads the NYPD’s Force Investigation Division.

Although the audio is hard to make out, the video shows that the suspect — who earlier had tried to stab his landlord with a smaller knife in an argument over unpaid rent — told cops to shoot him eight times during the encounter, police said.

Police stopped short of characterizing the incident as suicide by cop.

“The guy is saying, ‘Shoot me! Shoot me!’” said Deputy Commissioner Stephen Davis, the NYPD’s top spokesman. “(But) I can’t get into the guy’s mind.”

As city policy demands, the Bronx District Attorney’ office is investigating the shooting, as is the NYPD.

But Police Commissioner James O’Neill two days after the shooting said he had viewed the video and believes the cops acted appropriately.

One officer, who joined the NYPD 3 1/2 years ago, fired four times. His partner, a two-year veteran, fired twice.

The NYPD has now released footage from all four police shootings that have been captured on bodycameras since September.

O’Neill has promised to release all such videos — regardless of whether it makes police look good or bad.

By year’s end about 17,000 cops, most of the patrol force, are expected to be equipped with cameras.

Court: Man who killed Md. officer was ordered to surrender guns

Police One - 3 hours 21 min ago

Associated Press

BRANDYWINE, Md. — Court records say the man who fatally shot a Maryland police officer earlier this week had been court-ordered to surrender his guns at least three times in the last five years.

The Washington Post reports three different judges ordered Glenn Tyndell to "immediately surrender all firearms" after they found his wife, ex-wife and child needed protection. Prince George's County Sheriff's Col. Darrin C. Palmer says Tyndell had told deputies he'd turn himself in Tuesday. He didn't show.

Prince George's County police say 37-year-old Tyndell shot Cpl. Mujahid Ramzziddin five times with a shotgun Wednesday when the off-duty officer attempted to intervene in a dispute between Tyndell and his wife. Tyndell then fled before being fatally shot by officers Luke Allen and Channing Reed, who have been place on paid leave.

Fla. school shooting: 'abject breakdown at all levels'

Police One - 3 hours 30 min ago

By Gary Fineout, Jennifer Kay and Josh Replogle Associated Press

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — The Florida high school where a former student shot and killed 17 people with an assault-type rifle is reopening for teachers Friday as the community grappled with word that the armed officer on campus did nothing to stop the shooter.

That failure, plus reports of a delay in security camera footage scanned by responding police and several records indicating the 19-year-old suspect displayed behavioral troubles for years added to what the Florida House speaker described as an "abject breakdown at all levels."

The Valentine's Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School has reignited national debate over gun laws and school safety, including proposals by President Donald Trump and others to designate more people — including trained teachers — to carry arms on school grounds. Gun-control advocates, meanwhile, have redoubled calls for bans or further restrictions on assault rifles.

Teachers were told they could return to the school Friday to collect belongings from classrooms that have been off-limits since the slayings more than a week earlier. The school plans an orientation Sunday for teachers and students, and to restart classes Wednesday.

"Our new normal has yet to be defined, but we want to get back to it," said geography teacher Ernest Rospierski, whose classroom is on the third floor of the three-story building attacked Feb. 14. Officials have said that building will be torn down.

History teacher Ivy Schamis was teaching a Holocaust class when the shooter fired into her classroom. She's planning to return Monday to collect items from the room, including a big yellow banner that reads, "Never Again," referring to the Holocaust. She wants it hanging in her next classroom. "That's a Holocaust banner and now that's what our slogan is becoming after this tragedy."

The school resource officer on Feb. 14 took up a position viewing the western entrance of that building for more than four minutes after the shooting started, but "he never went in," Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said at a news conference. The shooting lasted about six minutes.

The officer, Scot Peterson, was suspended without pay and placed under investigation, then chose to resign, Israel said. When asked what Peterson should have done, Israel said the deputy should have "went in, addressed the killer, killed the killer."

The sheriff said he was "devastated, sick to my stomach. There are no words. I mean these families lost their children. We lost coaches. I've been to the funerals. ... I've been to the vigils. It's just, ah, there are no words."

A telephone message left at a listing for Peterson by The Associated Press wasn't returned. An AP reporter who later went to Peterson's home in a suburb of West Palm Beach saw lights on and cars in the driveway, but no one answered the door during an attempt to seek comment.

Meanwhile, new information has emerged that there was a communication issue between the person reviewing the school's security system footage and officers who responded to the school.

Coral Springs Police Chief Tony Pustizzi said during a news conference Thursday that the footage being reviewed was 20 minutes old, so the responding officers were hearing that the shooter was in a certain place while officers already in that location were saying that wasn't the case. Pustizzi said the confusion didn't put anyone in danger.

Shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz, 19, has been jailed on 17 counts of murder and has admitted the attack, authorities have said. Cruz owned a collection of weapons. Defense attorneys, state records and people who knew him have described troubling incidents going back years.

Broward County incident reports show that unidentified callers contacted authorities with concerns about Cruz in February 2016 and November 2017. The first caller said they had third-hand information that Cruz planned to shoot up the school. The information was forwarded to the Stoneman Douglas resource officer. The second caller said Cruz was collecting guns and knives and believed "he could be a school shooter in the making."

Also in November 2017, Cruz was involved in a fight with the adult son of a woman he was staying with shortly after his mother died, according to a Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office report. On Nov. 28, a 22-year-old man at the Lake Worth home told the responding deputy the he tried to calm down Cruz, who had been punching holes in walls and breaking objects, but Cruz hit him in the jaw, and the man hit Cruz back.

The deputy found Cruz a short time later at a nearby park. Cruz told the deputy he had been angry because he misplaced a photo of his recently deceased mother, and he apologized for losing his temper.

The other man told the deputy he didn't want Cruz arrested. He just wanted Cruz to calm down before coming home.

Politicians under pressure to tighten gun laws in response to the mass shooting floated various plans Thursday, but most fell short of reforms demanded by student activists who converged Wednesday on Florida's Capitol.

Florida House Speaker Richard Corcoran said Thursday night that his chamber is going to recommend creating a special commission to investigate the "abject breakdown at all levels" that led to the shooting deaths. The Republican said the commission, likely be led by a parent of one of the slain children, would have subpoena power.

Corcoran said the news about the resource officer's failure to respond did not dissuade him from moving ahead with what he was calling the "marshal" plan to let local law-enforcement officials train and deputize someone at the school who would be authorized to carry a gun.

State Sen. Bill Galvano, who is helping craft a bill in response to the shooting deaths, insisted the idea is not the same as arming teachers. He said the program would be optional and the deputized person would have to be trained by local law-enforcement agencies.

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida said a visit to Stoneman Douglas prompted him to change his stance on large capacity magazines. The Republican insisted he is willing to rethink his past opposition on gun proposals if there is information the policies would prevent mass shootings.

"If we are going to infringe on the Second Amendment, it has to be a policy that will work," Rubio said in an interview Thursday with AP.
