Documents: Mo. cop charged with killing colleague says he was in love with her

Police One - Fri, 02/15/2019 - 19:16

By PoliceOne Staff

ST. LOUIS — Documents state the St. Louis officer who allegedly shot and killed a fellow officer while playing Russian Roulette was in love with her and was planning to move in with her.

According to court documents newly obtained by KMOV 4, Officer Nathaniel Hendren stated to his supervisor that “he did not try and kill [Officer Katlyn Alix] because he was in love with her and they were in an intimate relationship and were planning on moving into his apartment.”

According to the local news station, the exact relationship between Hendren and Alix was unknown previously, but the two sometimes patrolled around south St. Louis as partners and were said to be friends.

Hendren was charged with involuntary manslaughter for the shooting last month.

Documents also stated that the other officer who was there during the time of the shooting said Hendren and Alix were “consuming alcoholic beverages and playing with their off-duty weapons.” The Circuit Attorney stated previously that there was probable cause that drugs and/or alcohol may have been involved in the incident.

The officer also said that Hendren and Alix started playing Russian Roulette with a revolver, and at a point the officer became uncomfortable with the drinking and gunplay. He left the living room and as he did, he heard a single gunshot, according to the documents.

Three cell phones were found at the scene and police are attempting to determine who they belong to. According to the officer, Alix had sent several text messages to both officers that night asking for their whereabouts and had phone conversations with them leading up to the incident.

Hendren has been released on bond and his next court date is set for March 4.

Gunman kills 5 people, wounds 5 LEOs at Ill. business

Police One - Fri, 02/15/2019 - 19:13

By Carrie Antlfinger and Amanda Seitz Associated Press

AURORA, Ill. — An employee of a manufacturing company opened fire at its suburban Chicago plant Friday, killing five people and wounding five police officers before he was fatally shot, police said.

Aurora, Illinois, Police Chief Kristen Ziman told a news conference that the gunman was 45-year-old Gary Martin and said he was believed to be an employee at the Henry Pratt Co. — which makes valves for industrial purposes — in the city about 40 miles (65 kilometers) west of Chicago. She told reporters that officers arrived within four minutes of receiving reports of the shooting and were fired upon as soon as they entered the 29,000-square-foot manufacturing warehouse.

Police said they did not know the gunman's motive.

"May God bless the brave law enforcement officers who continue to run toward danger," Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker said at the news conference.

Hospitals reported treating at least seven patients from the shooting, though their conditions weren't released. Two of the officers were airlifted to trauma centers in Chicago, Ziman said. She said a sixth officer suffered a knee injury. Officials did not say the total number of people injured other than the police officers.

Dozens of first responder vehicles converged on the building housing the company in Aurora after police received multiple calls about an active shooter at 1:24 p.m. CST.

Several ATF teams also responded to the shooting and were at the scene, according to the agency's Chicago spokeswoman, and the FBI said it also responded.

John Probst, an employee at the Henry Pratt Co. in Aurora, told ABC7 that he ran out of the back door as the shooting unfolded Friday afternoon. Probst says he recognized the gunman and that he works for the company.

"What I saw was the guy running down the aisle with a pistol with a laser on it," Probst said.

Probst said he wasn't hurt but that another colleague was "bleeding pretty bad."

"It's a shame that mass shootings such as this have become commonplace in our country. It's a shame that a cold and heartless offender would be so selfish as to think he has the right to take an innocent life," Aurora Mayor Richard C. Irvin said.

The White House said President Donald Trump was briefed on the shooting and monitoring the situation as he prepared to depart for a weekend trip to his home in Palm Beach, Florida. Trump tweeted his thanks to law enforcement officers in Aurora and offered his condolences to the victims and their families. "America is with you," he said.

Presence Mercy Medical Center was treating two patients and a third had been transferred by helicopter to another hospital, spokesman Matt Wakely said. Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital and Advocate Lutheran General Hospital each had one patient from the shooting, spokeswoman Kate Eller said. Rush Copley Medical Center received three patients from the shooting and all are being treated for non-life threatening injuries, spokeswoman Courtney Satlak said.

Improving trust, efficiency top agenda for police leaders at Entrust conference

Police One - Fri, 02/15/2019 - 17:35

By P1 News Staff

ORLANDO – Law enforcement, public safety and healthcare leaders attended the inaugural Entrust 2019 conference in Orlando. More than 300 attendees, users of the PowerDMS platform, came together to explore best practices such as engaging a millennial workforce, training tactics to increase employee safety, and maintaining a culture of compliance.

Retired Navy SEAL Rich Diviney delivered the keynote address " Start with Why." Diviney, drawing on more than 20 years of experience as a Navy SEAL officer, gave participants the foundational understanding and tools to unlock their greatest potential. Diviney has worked with motivational speaker Simon Sinek to help leaders and organizations create environments where people feel valued and free to explore their potential. Diviney spoke about the qualities of high-performing teams and how to build them, as well as the important relationship between trust and performance.

Other sessions covered a wide-range of experts and topics. Paul Tennies, Northville Township Police Department, spoke on engaging the millennial workforce. He shared how the police department has used technology, specifically the PowerDMS mobile app, to increase buy-in, trust, and transparency with their growing millennial workforce.

Richard Beary, University of Central Florida chief emeritus and past-president of the International Chiefs of Police, shared the use of technology-based policies for modern policy practice and procedure training. His talk, "Everyday is a Training Day," stressed the importance of daily training to avoid serious line of duty injury and to decrease liability as police interact with suspects.

Bob Bradley, senior vice president of the PoliceOne Academy, described how to use activity-based tracking to close the loop on traditional training methods, driving greater consistency and transparency within your department.

The conference concluded with the first-ever Entrust Awards, which celebrated three police departments for modernizing subpoena management, finding high-risk children with autism faster and saving their departments money.

APD recovers phones stolen from ACL 2018 music fest

Austin (TX) Police - Fri, 02/15/2019 - 15:23

The Austin Police Department is pleased to announce that a number of phones stolen from persons attending WEEKEND ONE of the Austin City Limits Music Festival (October 4-6, 2018) have been recovered and are ready to be reunited with their owner.

Investigators with the Osceola County Sheriff’s Department in Kissimmee, Florida intercepted a package and discovered a large number of cell phones had been shipped from Austin to Florida. An operation was conducted, resulting in the arrest of three Colombian nationals:

  • Edward Javier Garcia-Castano, age 34
  • Estivenson Blanco-Rubiano, age 34
  • Wilmer Arias-Arias, age 25

All three were charged by the Federal Bureau of Investigations for trafficking in stolen property across state lines. Immigration and Customs Enforcement then deported the trio back to Colombia for immigration offenses.

No local charges will be filed.

ACL Fest and crowdfind.com are partnering with the Austin Police Department to return the phones to their rightful owner in an unprecedented manner.

Persons who attended WEEKEND ONE of ACL Fest and who lost a phone or reported their phone as stolen can visit the following website: crowdfind.com/APDPhones

All the phones that were recovered because of this effort were photographed with the wallpaper screen showing, for those devices able to be powered on. The website will assist the owner in claiming the device, obtaining a shipping label then notifying APD detectives to release the phone back to them.

This is the largest item reunification effort the Austin Police Department has undertaken. Investigators are grateful for the support by ACL Fest and crowdfind.com.

Most importantly, the Austin Police Department would like to thank Sgt. Grattan Heyward of the Osceola County Sheriff’s Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Immigration and Customs Enforcement for their efforts in locating the phones and making arrests and deportations related to this case.

 

 

How police agencies can share criminal intelligence data

Police One - Fri, 02/15/2019 - 14:53

Author: Dale Stockton

Criminals seldom limit their activity to a specific jurisdiction so it is important that crime analysis efforts look well beyond the siloed information produced by a single organization. Increasingly, agencies are utilizing shared databases that allow analysts to consider incidents that are taking place in adjoining cities, information that might prove crucial to resolving a crime series but that would go unnoticed if the data were not readily available. Improvements in analysis software and increased computing power, combined with the recognition that a more inclusive use of data can yield better results, are motivating many law enforcement leaders to invest in tools that are effective force multipliers when it comes to patrol and investigative operations.

Today’s crime analysts have an array of tools available that aid in the early determination of emerging crime patterns and in the identification of a single individual as a likely suspect. The potential effectiveness of these tools is largely dependent on the depth and breadth of the data sources available for analysis. A 2017 DOJ-commissioned report, A Blueprint for Interagency and Cross-Jurisdictional Data Sharing (available in full below), offers practical lessons for launching data sharing, integration and analysis efforts that can better inform crime prevention and reduction strategies. The report, published by the nonprofit Urban Institute, addresses the major challenges that are likely to be encountered and offers strategies to overcome those challenges. The blueprint also serves as a guide to facilitating cross-sector analysis and identifies trends in technology and practice relevant to data sharing. Following is a summary of the key findings and recommendations outlined in the 85-page report.

Challenges of data sharing in law enforcement

Resources are often a primary concern and will determine the scope and sustainability of data-sharing efforts. It takes staff time to generate and review data, as well as significant technical capability in terms of data infrastructure. Organizations may face substantial challenges regarding the use of their data systems for analytic purposes, particularly during the initial implementation period. Ensuring compatibility of datasets is a key concern, as is data security.

Organizational culture may be such that there is actual opposition to the concept of sharing data. Data-sharing agreements will have little chance of success if staffing and management within an agency do not support data sharing or if staff turnover weakens the communication between partners. Lack of shared goals or recognized mutual benefits can result in friction and weaken data integration efforts. Staff members tasked with execution and implementation of this type of effort need the technical expertise to manage project demands. Effective lines of communication must be in place to introduce new leadership and management to data-sharing protocols.

A stable and centralized leadership is key to promoting system utility, but it may be difficult to identify long-term leadership that can be accepted by all project partners. There must be coordination among partners to maintain the momentum as efforts progress and evolve. Some data-sharing participants may fear public scrutiny or have concerns that release of information might have negative economic impact, resulting in varying levels of support for greater transparency.

In addressing the above challenges, each potential data-sharing partner must weigh the costs and utility of integrating their data, noting that the degree of effort may range from one-time participation to establishment of an ongoing system. Agencies should try to implement structures that adequately support ongoing data sharing so that they can monitor trends and respond to challenges as they arise.

Key steps to achieving data sharing in law enforcement

Develop a framework for data integration. Start with the determination of the types of questions that need to be answered, allowing for consideration of the benefits that can result from examining the relationship between crime and other variables.

Organize the research team to ensure that projects have a clear, yet flexible, leadership that ensures progress while allowing for engagement of new opportunities as they emerge. A good approach is to utilize a central project manager who oversees the work of several subject matter experts, thus balancing competing priorities.

Identify data sources while giving due consideration to data availability and quality, willingness to share data, the utility of data content and the effort needed for analysis based on formatting or organization. There should be regular engagement among data-sharing partners. Participants should be careful to avoid redundant requests and remain conscious of the frequency of new data requests. A mutually-agreed-upon timeline for collaboration and accountability will help ensure that data-sharing efforts move forward.

Build and manage relationships. The solicitation of data-sharing partners can be challenging, especially when there are public relations or operational risks for an agency. To address these concerns, participants must be able to demonstrate the value of integrated data sharing to other partners and ensure that operational and technical frameworks are in place to maintain data security.

Data management structures must be created that facilitate the efficient analysis of data. It is important that data from contributing partners be cleaned, coded and reconciled. The reconciliation of data should be prioritized, and a common framework established to deal with situations where jurisdictions use different terminology to describe a similar occurrence or observation. A data dictionary can be invaluable in this process.

To ensure effective analysis, integration of data should include structuring that facilitates efficient management. Although data can be integrated at the level of either an individual or a place, integration at a place level is often easier. Data integration will be most sustainable and useful if it is built into the daily functions of the agencies collecting the data.

The increased use of GPS-enabled devices could benefit data collection efforts, providing an opportunity to analyze granular, real-time data. Consideration should be given to how such geographic information can factor into the analysis of crime patterns.

Conclusion

There is great potential for data integration having a positive impact on public safety given the ongoing development of technological tools and the increasing willingness to embed data more thoroughly in the daily work of public agencies. However, concerns over privacy and the protection of civil rights will be a significant issue and there are justified concerns about data security. Agencies entering into data-sharing partnerships must establish sufficient safeguards and protocols to protect against data breaches.

The future of integrated data will involve partnerships between practitioners, academics and researches wherein each stakeholder communicates needs and developments with stakeholders from other fields. The result of this type of strategic partnership approach will enable jurisdictions to effectively examine the relationships of neighborhood dynamics and crime, allowing police to respond more holistically to incidents by drawing on information beyond traditional criminal justice sources.

5 people killed, 5 LEOs wounded in Ill. shooting

Police One - Fri, 02/15/2019 - 14:53

Associated Press

AURORA, Ill. — The chief of police says five people were killed and five officers were wounded in a shooting at a business in suburban Chicago

Aurora Police Chief Kristen Ziman told reporters that the officers were fired upon Friday afternoon as soon as they entered the Henry Pratt Co. building in Aurora.

Ziman says the gunman was also killed.

Live TV reports showed dozens of first responder vehicles outside a building housing the Henry Pratt Co. in Aurora, a city of about 200,000 people about 40 miles (65 kilometers) west of Chicago.

Several ATF teams responded to the shooting and were at the scene, according to the agency's Chicago spokeswoman, and the FBI said it also was responding.

John Probst, an employee at the Henry Pratt Co. in Aurora, told ABC7 that he ran out of the back door as the shooting unfolded Friday afternoon. Probst says he recognized the gunman and that he works for the company.

He said the gunman had "a pistol with a laser." Probst said he wasn't hurt but that another colleague was "bleeding pretty bad."

The company makes valves for industrial purposes.

Police said the situation had been contained and that there was "no ongoing threat to the public," according to a statement issued by the Kane County Sheriff's Department on behalf of the Aurora Police Department.

The White House said President Donald Trump was briefed on a shooting in Illinois and monitoring the situation as he prepared to depart for a weekend trip to his home in Palm Beach, Florida.

West Aurora School District 129 said on its website that it was keeping all students in their classrooms as police investigate, but that "teaching will continue with reduced movement."

Spokespeople for Mercy Medical Center and Rush Copley Medical Center in Aurora did not immediately return messages about whether either hospital was treating victims from the shooting. No victims had been sent to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in nearby Downers as of Friday evening, spokeswoman Kate Eller told The Associated Press.

Police leaders recognized for innovative use of cloud-based crucial information software

Police One - Fri, 02/15/2019 - 14:42

By P1 Staff ORLANDO – Several law enforcement leaders from around the country were recognized for their innovative use of a cloud-based records management system to solve pressing community problems at the inaugural Entrust conference.

In addition to honoring award winners, conference attendees – users of the PowerDMS information management technology platform –participated in educational sessions on topics such as engaging a millennial workforce, using tactics to increase employee safety, and maintaining a department culture of compliance.

The six award winners were: • Community Hero Award: Paul Tennies, Northville Township (Ill.) Police Department • Innovation Award: Alicia Schotter, Winder (Ga.) Police Department • ROI Award: Gabrielle Fiore, Orlando (Fla.) Police Department • Environmental Protector: Jennifer Cruz, Community Care Plan • Power User: Beth Elliott-Thul and Lisa Montpetit, Boynton Health Service • Champion of the Year: Megan Styron, Greenville (N.C.) Police Department

"With Entrust, we set out to bring together our exceptional customers from across the country to collaborate, share and learn best practices from each other, from industry leaders, and from PowerDMS experts," said David DiGiacomo, CEO of PowerDMS. "We are proud of the award winners who demonstrate the transformative work our customers are doing to benefit their organizations and the communities."

Public safety Entrust Award winners

Among the six winners, three recipients were recognized for their innovative use of PowerDMS in law enforcement.

Digitizing subpoenas for improved access

Winder Police Department, represented by Alicia Schotter, was recognized with the Entrust Innovation Award for moving the department's handwritten, paper log subpoena process to PowerDMS.

Once a subpoena is scanned into PowerDMS the document can be emailed to officers and tracked for the presence of an officer signature. If an officer misses her court date she can look at the documentation to see when she signed for it. Officers also receive an alert the day after the subpoena is entered in PowerDMS and have access to that subpoena up to one day after the court appearance date.

Helping officers find high-risk children with autism

The Entrust Community Hero Award was presented to the Northville Township Police Department, represented by Paul Tennies, for the department’s resourceful use of the PowerDMS mobile app to record and track all high-risk children with autism in the community.

The project was initiated by Sgt. David Roberts who has a child with autism, who is non-verbal. Roberts has experienced the panic of his son running away from home. Thankfully, first responders searched the area and eventually found the boy by a body of water.

As a result of his personal experience, Roberts initiated a public education program to obtain profiles of children with autism in their community. These profiles were physical paper files which remained in the police department and weren't accessible to the units responding to a missing child incident.

Roberts realized time is critical in these incidents and suggested loading the profiles into PowerDMS to make them accessible to all officers with the PowerDMS mobile app. Now, all responding officers have a photo of the child and the demographic information they would typically request when they arrive on scene. The child's information led to creation of an enhanced profile which includes a search grid map of the child's residence, including identifying nearby bodies of water for officers to check first.

Further, this initiative was tied to Autism awareness month in the state of Michigan. The department has had success in using the profiles and in 2019 is expanding the concept to include vulnerable adult profiles. There are seven assisted living facilities in the community and most specialize in dementia care. This program provides support to individuals in those communities who may also wander.

Redesigning department's Transfer History Records

Orlando Police Department received the ROI Impact Entrust award. Gabrielle Fiore accepted the award after spearheading a redesign of the agency's process for Transfer History Records and how those records are managed, revised and accessed by employees.

Managing Transfer History Records with PowerDMS has saved the department multiple hours and dollars every week. Personnel no longer must make multiple requests to access and print employee transfer records. Rather, employees can access this information from any device, at any time.

Policy delivery, tracking and training

PowerDMS, used by agencies across the U.S., is web-based software that electronically delivers and tracks the policies police officers need to do their jobs.

"As a longtime user and champion of PowerDMS, I was blown away by the creative ways agencies and organizations are leveraging PowerDMS to improve how they do their important work," said Eric Daigle, principal, Daigle Law Group and legal advisor to law enforcement agencies throughout the country. "The critical information shared during Entrust will undoubtedly maximize the impact of PowerDMS, allowing its customers to continue to strive for and achieve operational excellence within their organizations."

With PowerDMS supervisors can make sure officers receive and understand critical content, can hold officers accountable for their performance in the field and quickly prove officer's compliance in the wake of an incident.
