Other Department employees including detention officers, park safety specialists, community service officers, reserve officers and forensic technicians will also have that extra set of digital eyes attached to them in an impressive 21st century department upgrade.We are excited about using the body cams. We believe that the cameras will hold everyone accountable for their actions—not just the police, but the public at large,” said Lieutenant Vasken Gourdikian. “It’s a piece of technology that’s being introduced not only locally, but nation-wide and we are happy to participate in the program. We believe that it will enhance officer safety as well.”The Pasadena Police Department purchased approximately 300 new body cameras for $1.5 million from Taser International in the form of two models called the Axon Body 2 and the Flex. The Axon Body 2 is a rectangular body cam that fastens to the chest area of an officer, and the Flex is a clip-on camera in the shape of a writing pen most commonly used by motor officers.These cameras, although compact in size, pack all the features of cutting edge video technology: 1080p HD full color video resolution, 142 degree field of view, 12 hour battery life, 64 GB of storage, dual channel audio recording and more.“The expectation is that everyone in the Police Department that interacts with the public — not just sworn police officers, but whomever has frequent and regular contact with members of the public or by virtue of their job assignment — they are all issued a body worn camera,” Gourdikian said.Support staff and clerical staff that work in side the police headquarters building at 207 North Garfield Avenue are not expected to be assigned a body camera, he said.Each camera is serialized for each officer/user even when a spare camera must be put in rotation due to inactive battery life or any other malfunction.“My body worn camera is personally assigned to me. So if you were to don it and go record, it’s as if I am wearing it. You can go back into the field with a spare body worn camera, yet it’s assigned to you as if your current camera is assigned to you so there is no digital interruption with the video evidence that you are gathering,” said Gourdikian about serializing body cams.The Axon body cams are activated by the push of large button on the front of it that beeps loudly, blinks red to indicate it is recording and also vibrates regularly during recording to allow officer’s to know that is in operation and working.“Last week we did five days straight of training. The entire department was trained on how to use the technology and policy,” said Corporal Todd McDonald.Officers are required to function test their camera before each shift and the camera is to remain on standby in what’s called “passive mode”, where the camera is on but not recording, until the officer manually pushes the large recording button on the front of the camera.“The minute they get a radio call of a crime in progress, whether they are pulling a car over, or even a cold report the expectation is that you hit record and go about your job. That’s the only nuance that is different. Before, they would just go do their job and now they will hit record whenever they are going to interact with members of the public,” said Gourdikian.The cameras offer a 30 second buffer feature that allows for footage to be seen 30 seconds prior to the camera recording to provide further context of the situation that merited an officer to record.“If they park their car and get out and want to go get a cup of coffee, their camera is still in the passive mode and is not recording because they’re not investigating anything and they’re not responding to a call for services and there is no imminent threat. Now, if someone confronts them and the conversation becomes adversarial or someone tries to get their attention to investigate, then the expectation is that they hit record,” explained Gourdikian.There are docking stations on every floor in the building of the PPD where both the Axon body cameras and the Flex model cameras “live” when not in operation to charge up and also transfer over and upload the day’s footage from each officer’s shift.All of the footage is stored in a virtual filing cabinet in a cloud-based format called evidence.com.“This is supervised by a full time employee in the building as well because its treated as digital evidence and property,” explained Gourdikian.Video footage is treated as evidence and restricts access as a way to present checks and balances within the operation.Officers are only allowed to view their own footage as a means for court and report preparation, Gourdikian said. The database logs any and all activity.“The average user can view his or her own videos at any time,” said McDonald.The footage logging process is detailed and models traditional evidence locker practices.“It’s just like if we were booking a physical object in as evidence. We would tag it with a case number, we would put the location of where we recovered it from, the circumstances involving that case and then we physically hand it to the property room supervisor who then books it in as evidence so that every subsequent view of that physical object requires a sign-off. So now this electronically monitored in that fashion,” Gourdikian explained.According to Gourdikian and McDonald, the new technology is not daunting, but will take some time to get used to.“It’s a learning curve, but it’s also going to require attention full time. We’ve made arrangements to ensure that there are no interruptions in service to the troops and to the public,” said Gourdikian.City of Pasadena Department of Information Technology personnel are availbale to provide technical support in the form of maintenance, troubleshooting and providing reference guides for officers it the field.For more technical information about the body cameras the Pasadena Police Department now uses, visit https://www.axon.io/products/body2 Top of the News Business News HerbeautyStop Eating Read Meat (Before It’s Too Late)HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Lies You Should Stop Telling Yourself Right NowHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyCostume That Makes Actresses Beneath Practically UnrecognizableHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyFinding The Right Type Of Workout For You According AstrologyHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyIs It Bad To Give Your Boyfriend An Ultimatum?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyAmazing Sparks Of On-Screen Chemistry From The 90-sHerbeautyHerbeauty faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Community News Your email address will not be published.

Widespread Panic Brings The Heat For Night Two In Chicago [Review/Gallery]

first_imgLoad remaining images The second night of Widespread Panic’s sold out, three night run at the Chicago Theatre continued exactly where they left off from Thursday night. Last night was an absolute party, with the band getting extra funky for all those that made it on the beautiful Chicago evening.What the first set didn’t have in segues it made up for in maximum rock and roll. The show opened with an energetic “Wondering.” Keyboardist JoJo Hermann took the vocals on the next song, “Blackout Blues,” that saw the set’s only segue into “Pigeons.” The next song, “One Arm Steve” is always a welcome addition to any set.The band then slowed things down with “Expiration Day,” which provided a slowed down moment to give everyone a breather before raging the rest of the set. “Holden Oversoul” was blazing, with a piercing organ solo from Hermann. The chemistry between members was palpable. As Hermann was letting it rip, guitarist Jimmy Herring subtly added to guitar licks without taking the spotlight away from the keys. And next to him, guitarist John Bell was nimbly plucking away at his own guitar. “Love Tractor” got everyone stomping along with the beat before the set ended.The second set continued the party. They opened with “Tail Dragger,” and a vampire vixen was on the screen to give things a darker tone. Later on in the set “Barstools and Dreamers” was a lot of fun, especially with a “Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Self)” jam/rap that was very cool. One of the best segments of the night followed, with a “Goin’ Out West” segueing into “Shut Up and Drive” with a whole lot of drums and bass in between. The two separate jams featuring Dave Schools and percussionists Sunny Ortiz and Duane Trucks were amazing.After an fantastic second set, they encored with “Nobody’s Loss” and then “Mr. Soul.” With night two in the books, there remains one last show for Spreadheads. The show tonight will be the tour closer. Bring it on Panic.Check out the setlist from the show below, courtesy of PanicStream:Setlist: Widespread Panic at Chicago Theatre, Chicago, IL – 5/6/16Set 1: Wondering, Blackout Blues > Pigeons, Her Dance Needs No Body, One Arm Steve, Use Me, Steven’s Cat, Expiration Day, Holden Oversoul > Love TractorSet 2: Tail Dragger, Don’t Be Denied, Tickle The Truth, Bowlegged Woman > You Got Yours, Barstools and Dreamers, Goin’ Out West > Drums & Bass > Drums > Drums & Bass > Shut Up and Drive, Bear’s Gone Fishin’ > Bust It Big, Sell SellEncore: Nobody’s Loss, Mr SoulCheck out a full gallery of images below, courtesy of Ojeda Photography:last_img read more

UW emerges victorious in physical match against in-state rival

first_imgIn soccer, a “derby” is defined as a match between two teams from the same city or region.For the Wisconsin men’s soccer team, Wednesday’s match against cross-state rival UW-Milwaukee was most definitely a derby.The intensity and physicality of Wednesday’s match reached a level these Badgers haven’t experienced so far this season. In fact, with so many freshmen on this year’s squad, many of these guys had never ever experienced a match with this level of intensity.“This was the first real big rivalry game for me so it was kind of an eye-opener as I wasn’t used to this,” freshman forward Mark Segbers said. “But once you get hit a couple of times, it wakes you up and gets you ready for the battle.”Despite both teams getting chippy and into it with each other, the Badgers held strong, stay focused and were able to walk away with a 1-0 victory over the Panthers.“It’s kind of hard to keep your composure when your blood is boiling and everything like that,” Segbers said. “It definitely gets in your head a little bit to start, but that’s where you got your captains to keep you focused and keep you on your game. You can’t lose your game over something stupid and start talking to the other team or anything like that.”Wisconsin knew coming into Wednesday night’s match that this sort of battle awaited them. Playing Milwaukee yearly like they do, they know the Panthers are always going to bring their best and bring the intensity.Redshirt junior defender Carl Schneider, who scored the lone goal of the match on a header off a perfect cross from redshirt sophomore midfielder Luc Kazmierczak, knew what the team was getting themselves into as they approached kick-off.“It’s always expected when we play Milwaukee. They are a chippy group and obviously being an in-state rivalry adds more to it,” Schneider said. “Coach told us before the game that we have to keep our heads straight if we want to be successful tonight.”With both programs in the heart of conference play, it may be difficult for the teams to get up for a mid-week non-conference matchup. However, that was not even close to being the case for these two teams.There was fresh bad blood between these two programs, as Wisconsin had beat Milwaukee in last year’s NCAA tournament by the same count, 1-0. With that bad blood flowing, Milwaukee was going to do everything they could to get revenge. Unfortunately for them, that didn’t happen for them despite their physical play.“Both programs are looking forward to their conference games, but it still got feisty tonight,” head coach John Trask said. “We know them, they know us, we knocked them out of the NCAA tournament last year. You could tell that as soon as we got the goal, the game kicked into a totally different gear physicality-wise.”With that physical play, both teams are constantly fighting for the ball and it really moves that game into the midfield. When that happens, it can be difficult to get anything going offensively.It ultimately gets to the point where both teams are frustrated, and it becomes more of a match of pushing and shoving, but that is to expected during a derby.“Both programs didn’t want to lose this game and it started to get personal,” Trask said. “There was a big strong battle going on there in the middle of the field, and that was just because neither team could get the ball out of the middle and down the field. There were good isolated moments of soccer for both groups, but it was just a lot banging going on.”The level of intensity these Badgers experienced was something they hadn’t yet experienced this season, but it was also something that will help prepare them as the regular season winds down.With just three Big Ten games remaining, Wisconsin should expect some of their toughest matches to date, and despite not having the most successful season record-wise, this team knows they need to be ready to put up the fight.“Sometimes, when you’re not having a good season, this is the kind of game that rallies the guys because it was not a game for the feint of heart,” Trask said. “The physicality here was a lot like some of the Big Ten games, so hopefully we have learned some lessons here tonight and learned how to compete in that environment.”last_img read more

Council defers decision on the late Cllr Manus Kelly’s seat

first_imgDonegal County Councillors today deferred a decision on who will take the seat left vacant following the death of Manus ‘Mandy’ Kelly.Councillors were due to co-opt a new member to the vacant Fianna Fáil party seat today, however, no decision has yet been made on who will take up the role.Mr Kelly passed away on 23rd June as a result of a tragic accident during the Donegal International Rally.

Ready for winter?

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Hopefully, “polar vortex” and “arctic blast” will be erased from our vocabulary this winter. According to the National Weather Service (NWS), this winter’s buzz term will be “El Niño.”El Niño is a large-scale, ocean-atmosphere climate interaction that causes a periodic warming in sea surface temperatures across the Pacific. This winter, Ohio could see warmer-than-average temperatures, but cold air outbreaks and snow storms will still likely occur.To help Ohioans prepare for this year’s cold season, the Ohio Committee for Severe Weather Awareness (OCSWA) has been promoting measures to take before the winter temperatures arrive.Ohioans are being encouraged to update their safety plans, replenish their disaster supply kit, and prepare themselves and their property for winter-related incidents.“Check the expiration dates on your nonperishable food. Stock up on bottled water. Refresh supplies in your first aid kits. Ensure you have jumper cables and supplies in your car,” said Sima Merick, executive director of the Ohio Emergency Management Agency. “Make sure your vehicle is road-ready and winterized. And don’t forget to check the batteries in your flashlights, radios and smoke detectors.”When the weather is bad, driving can get pretty hectic. Before getting on the road, it’s best to know before you go. Pay attention to weather forecasts and traffic reports. Listen for reports of school and business closings, snow emergencies, traffic delays or road closures. Plan your drive time accordingly.To help prepare for winter, OCSWA recommends the following: Preparing a home for winterCut and remove low-hanging and dead tree branches. Ice, snow and strong winds can cause tree limbs to break and fall. Have your gutters cleaned. Snow and ice can build up quickly if gutters are clogged with debris. Have auxiliary heaters, furnaces and fireplaces maintenance checked or serviced before using. If using a portable generator, read instructions thoroughly to guard against carbon monoxide poisoning. Review your homeowner’s insurance policy; talk with your insurance agent about the financial risks that winter can bring. Consider purchasing flood insurance. Prepare winter disaster kits for the home and vehicleRefresh stored nonperishable foods and bottled water. Change the batteries in your smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors and radios. Winter emergency kits should include warm clothing, blankets, flashlights, new batteries, coats, hats, gloves, a battery-operated or hand-cranked radio, first aid kit, and enough nonperishable food and water (one gallon per person, per day) to sustain every family member for several days. Have stored food, bottled water and supplies for your pets, as well. Invest in a NOAA public alert/weather radioEvery home, school and business should have a tone-alert weather radio with a battery back-up. Weather and public alert radios are programmed to automatically sound an alert during public safety and severe weather events. Click on www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/ for additional information. Updating disaster preparedness plansEvery home, school, and business should have written plans for the different types of disasters that can occur. Review the plans with the entire family or staff. Everyone should know what to do in the event of a snow or ice storm, a prolonged power outage, a flood or fire. Post contact information for your local emergency management agency. Prepare and practice drills that require sheltering in place and evacuation. Update your emergency contact list and establish a meeting place outside of the home, school or business, where others will know where to find or meet you.OCSWA is an advocate for emergency preparedness and is comprised of representatives from the following: American Red Cross; Emergency Management Association of Ohio; National Weather Service; Ohio Citizen Corps; Ohio Department of Public Safety — Emergency Management Agency; Ohio Insurance Institute; Ohio Department of Commerce — State Fire Marshal; Ohio Departments of Aging, Education, Health, Insurance, Mental Health & Addiction Services, Natural Resources, and Transportation; NBC4 (WCMH) and WBNS-10TV.last_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — December 18, 2017

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ryan Martin 171218We have a fairly calm start to the week. Moisture so far over Ohio has been pretty minor. We do have to deal with lingering moisture through the day today, and in many cases, but we do not expect much. With the clouds we are only looking at minor precipitation, spits and sprinkles here and there, for a total of no more than a few hundredths to .15” over 40% of the state.Tomorrow, Wednesday and Thursday look dry with better sunshine potential. Temps remain normal to above normal and we will see no snow left anywhere in the state by late this week (there is only minor snow cover remaining in northern Indiana as of this morning anyway, a lot of which was in areas that have not been able to see as much sun. We see good west winds through the period, with a turn to the strong southwest not likely until late in the week.On Friday, we see those southwest winds develop, and clouds build quickly. However moisture is slower to arrive and we are projecting now only a few hit and miss showers for Friday during the day. Much better moisture fills in overnight Friday night through Saturday the 23rd. Through Saturday midday we can see .25”-.75” over 90% of the state. Some models are trying to put much heavier rain in over southern Indiana with thunderstorms, but we are not going there yet. This Saturday precipitation will be the start of what could be a very interesting holiday weekend.The balance of Saturday and most of Sunday will be dry, but colder air tries to come in from the NW. Meanwhile, moisture continues to flow up the old, stalled frontal boundary sitting to our south. Eventually, Christmas Eve night we see this moisture surge back north, covering most of the state by Christmas morning. Cold air maintains its advance from the northwest, setting up a potential rain in the south changing to snow in the central and to light snow in the north kind of set up for early Christmas morning. And, the precipitation continues through Christmas day, adding to snows in the central and north. The precipitation finally leaves Tuesday the 26th, by midday. It is way too early to project where heavy snows and problem spots will be, and we expect the track of this system to change over the next few days. But, this is the “headline event” of the weather over the next 10 days, especially since it dances around Christmas itself. The map above shows total precipitation from the 22nd through early the 27th. This will have rain, but some of these totals can be snow, depending on where the cold air set up and when!Behind that system, the bitter cold air is coming in and parking over the state. Temps will be well below normal through the turn of the month. We should be mostly dry through the extended window, but a strong complex developing in the southern plains needs to be watched for the New Year’s weekend too…as that is an area we watch closely for winter storm development.last_img read more

Plaxico Burress Took A Twitter Jab At Jim Harbaugh, Michigan

first_imgPlaxico Burress close up.plaxico burress upset michigan state nebraska gameSince taking over at Michigan, Jim Harbaugh has certainly gone above and beyond in terms of recruiting. Whether it’s sleepovers, climbing trees, going to class with recruits or moving spring practice to Florida for a week, Harbaugh is committed to selling his vision in any way possible.The future is Harbaugh’s biggest selling point, as the Wolverines haven’t been elite lately. In recent years, Michigan has been on the short end of the stick against arch-rivals Michigan State and Ohio State. They’ve lost 11 of 12 to the Buckeyes and seven of eight to Sparty. Taking all this into account, former Michigan State star Plaxico Burress dropped a quick jab at Harbaugh and his recruiting tactics on Twitter this morning. According to Burress, while Harbaugh has to peddle his program, the Spartans simply have to point to the results. Looks like J Harbaugh is pulling out all stops to get kids to Michigan. We @MSU_Football just believe in the product. Don’t have to sell us— Plaxico Burress (@plaxicoburress) March 1, 2016Plax has a point because Michigan State has been the premier program in the state of Michigan the last several seasons. However, Harbaugh did lead his team to a 10-3 record in his first year and was one insane fluke play away from beating the Spartans. The Wolverines also have an outstanding recruiting class on the way.Will the Maize and Blue begin dominating its in-state rivals starting in 2016? We won’t go that far, but this series should be much closer in the coming years.last_img read more

The trauma informed and culturally based counseling appears to be limited to “the duration of their appearance before the Commission.” Trauma does not have a timeframe and we asked that families and survivors be provided with trauma informed and culturally based counselling services in their community as they get ready to present to the Inquiry, at the Inquiry and after presenting to the Inquiry. We learnt a lot from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission including that the telling of the story of trauma can further trigger trauma. Let’s use those lessons that we learned.2. There does not appear to be an opportunity for families to pursue or reopen cases through the justice system. In fact, for families who want to pursue cases or re-open ones that have been part of the justice system, the Terms of Reference direct that the support the Commissioners can offer is to redirect them to the appropriate provincial or territorial victim services. Families are not looking for mainstream counseling services through victim services but justice. This is a missed opportunity.3. There is no mention of the role of the provinces and territories and yet we know that some of the systemic issues will require provincial discussions, namely police services and the child welfare system. We cannot ignore what we know. Girls have described that they were sex trafficked from group homes and motels that are part of the child welfare system. We have a disproportionate number of Indigenous people who are in the criminal justice system. These issues are all interrelated and our expectation is that one reason we are having the Inquiry to address how these issues relate to violence against Indigenous women and girls.4. There is no explicit mention of the need to work with the justice partners in order to make appropriate recommendations to ensure that there are changes in that system. We cannot ignore the fact that many family members or survivors of violence do not feel that they were treated respectfully or fairly by the justice system.Got a comment? Send it to us.

Manitoba chief says woman tried to blackmail him over images sent from

first_img[email protected]@katmarte Peguis Chief Glenn Hudson says he is the victim of attempted extortion over an image on his phone. (APTN)Kathleen MartensAPTN NewsThe chief of Manitoba’s biggest first nation says someone tried to blackmail him over images that were sent from his phone in a speech in March during the community’s band election.“They threatened me. They threatened my family,” Glenn Hudson said in video of the speech that was posted to Facebook and recently shared with APTN News.Hudson was re-elected to serve four more years as chief of Peguis First Nation in April.APTN left several messages asking Hudson to comment further but he did not respond.The band’s director of communications, Dwayne Bird, also didn’t reply to an email seeking more information.In the video, Hudson said “a young lady” demanded $1,000 or threatened to release a photo of a man’s penis to his election opponents.APTN has learned the photo was sent from Hudson’s phone to a second woman – allegedly by accident.But she told friends about it – one of whom saw it as an opportunity to allegedly extort the chief.Hudson said the woman upped her demand to $1,500 the next day.So he called police.“You can’t allow people to do that,” he said, noting his wife was in full agreement.“She’s said, ‘Charge her,’” Hudson said in the speech. “Otherwise they’re going to continue to do that.”Hudson said the blackmailer backed down and apologized after police arrived.A copy of part of a texting conversation on the phone of Peguis Chief Glenn Hudson. (APTN)Copies of the original messages between Hudson and the second woman in January were posted on Facebook and shared with APTN.APTN is not naming the woman, who was not involved in the blackmail scheme and expressed shock at seeing the photo of a man’s penis that popped up on her screen.“What is that a picture of?” the woman texted to Hudson.“You just sent me a obscene picture.”“Idk (I don’t know) where?” Hudson texted back. “I don’t see anything on my phone.“What crazy must be hacked,” he added.Claiming his phone was ‘hacked’ is the same defence used by Grand Chief Arlen Dumas, who is on leave of absence from the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs after his own texting scandal broke earlier this month.Dumas said someone impersonated him on Facebook Messenger and in cellphone texts despite the texts appearing to come from a phone number that belonged to him.He said “spoof” texts can “make a message appear to come from one cell phone number when, in fact, they originate from another.”Hudson, who co-nominated Dumas for the position of grand chief two years ago, offers alternative theories for the penis photo sent from his phone, including that he hit a wrong button and asked the woman to delete it.He also refused to answer questions about the Dumas texting story from APTN at a recent event.“Promise that you erase that stupid video pic,” he told the woman by message.“Was sent by mistake in hitting a button I guess.”It is not illegal for adults to share nude photos unless the pictures are accompanied by threats or involve child pornography.“Guys shared stupid stuff even to me,” Hudson texted.“I’m sorry. Never do that kinda things.”The Peguis band council released a statement expressing confidence in Dumas following the texting revelation.The community, 170 kilometres north of Winnipeg, has a sexual harassment policy, but it applies to employees – not elected officials.last_img read more
