In a large room filled with workout equipment at MedStar Union Memorial Hospital’s Curtis Hand Center, Keith Mcneill gripped a small clip between his thumb and index finger and placed it on a metal bar. It was a simple task — and just over four years in the making.Mcneill was sitting in his Toyota Tundra outside a friend’s auto body shop in East Baltimore on March 14, 2014, when a masked man approached and began banging on a door.Mcneill identified himself as a Baltimore police officer. The man pulled out a .45-caliber handgun and opened fire. Bullets punched holes in Mcneill’s left arm, his chest, his abdomen.He remembers a bumpy ambulance ride. He doesn’t remember pain. But he avoided looking at his left arm, for fear he’d go into shock.Hundreds of people are shot to death in Baltimore each year. Hundreds more are wounded but survive. Few remain in rehabilitation as long as Mcneill.The lifelong Baltimorean had served 19 years on the force when he … [Read more...] about After being shot, Baltimore police officer spends four years recovering in hope of returning to duty
0 View Comments It's been more than a year since the Colorado Springs Police Department cut some of its proactive units amid a "critical" staffing shortage that left officers feeling unprotected and citizens waiting more than 14 minutes for help, but officials say the time has come to rebuild. The department will reinstate one Impact Unit and one Fugitive Unit in May. "It's just a good start to move forward," spokesman Lt. Howard Black said. Though the focus of the units will be to remove prolific offenders responsible for the lion's share of city crime, the underlying goal is largely the same as it was in September: to drive down response times, which this year dropped to 11 minutes and 27 seconds - still more than three minutes above the target goal of 8 minutes.

What was once a nation centered on the principles of individualism and self-governance has turned into a nanny state, whereby the people are told what to do and how to do it. Sadly, it appears to be getting worse, not better. Just days ago, mom Trey Hoyumpa took to social media to share a letter that she had received from a dental office called Smiles 4 Keeps, which is located in Bartonsville, Pennsylvania. Among other things, the letter warned that if she didn’t set up a dental appointment for her child, she could potentially be charged with “dental neglect.” The dental office cited a law called Pennsylvania Act 31 (which has to do with reporting and recognizing child abuse) and threatened to report her to the authorities if … [Read more...] about MEDICAL POLICE STATE: Dentists to start calling police on parents if they don’t schedule dental appointments for their children
The 64th R.O.C. at the Plymouth Police Academy is honored to be the first class to utilize a flag detail. A flag detail consists of three student officers from the recruit class that are tasked with the care of the American Flag and the daily raising and lowering of our colors at the open and close of each training day. Thanks to the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Department and the hard work and dedication of Academy Director Eileen Goodick, a flag pole was recently installed in the back yard of the Sheriff’s building where the academy is located. This marks the first time that the academy has had the use of a flag pole. A small patio is currently being constructed around the flag pole. This patio will feature a monument headstone that was designed and donated by the previous class, the 63rd R.O.C. This headstone is dedicated to memorializing of fallen K9s. The flag pole and a daily flag detail is an important tradition. Honoring our country … [Read more...] about Flag Pole Comes to the Plymouth Police Academy
Time to consider police brutality as a global health problem? Author : Adrienne Milner & Giuliano RussoAdrienne Milner is lecturer in social determinants of health and Giuliano Russo is lecturer in global health at the Centre for Primary Care and Public Health, Queen Mary University of London, UK. Police brutality has been framed in the past as a civil and human rights issue, and explained in terms of its sociological roots and legal implications. However, similarly to other human rights (eg, reproductive rights), substantial health repercussions arise from its perpetration for individuals as well as for the general public, and recent research in the USA has firmly established police brutality as a public health concern. In addition to the obvious link between police violence with fatality and injury (see panel), empirical evidence has shown harmful mental health consequences that are not limited to victims, but also shared by witnesses to negative police … [Read more...] about Time to consider police brutality as a global health problem?
