    “Action must be taken NOW if there is ever a chance to save the city and bring the reputation of being a city where tourists can come to party and celebrate and not become victims,” Pichardo wrote. "The residents of New Orleans ... also need and deserve to have a police force that can make them feel safe and be there for them every time they call 911." He added, "The simple expectations that the police will arrive when you call them is not a current reality in New Orleans." Pichardo suggested that the NOPD should take officers currently working administrative, general assignment or district detective roles and get them on the streets to patrol. "At its peak, the New Orleans Police Department had a headcount of 1143 commissioned officers," Pichardo stated. "With a workforce that size, the opportunity existed for NOPD to create specialized positions/units within the department without hampering its ability to provide adequate 911 response. ... That is no longer the case." Goyeneche explained, "We're down over a third of what we need to police this city...

    Antioch City Council, which was expected to appoint a new permanent city manager during a special meeting Friday, held off on that appointment. Council members met in closed session, and though no names were on the agenda, Mayor Lamar Thorpe earlier this week had said the council would consider making interim City Manager Cornelius “Con” Johnson the permanent city manager. But following the session, City Attorney Thomas Lloyd Smith said there was “no reportable action.” Johnson, a retired police lieutenant, stepped in as interim city manager in December after then-City Manager Ron Bernal ended his 36-year public service career at the close of 2021. During the hiring of the interim city manager last fall, some council members suggested they wanted to conduct a national search before selecting a permanent city manager. Johnson, 62, has 30 years of police experience, including acting night supervising captain for the San Francisco Police Department. He retired as a lieutenant in 2016. Johnson’s interim contract expires Dec. 21. Check for updates.

    A highly-respected law enforcement veteran has become Hackensack's new police director without much fanfare -- without any at all, in fact. Raymond Guidetti, who retired as a lieutenant colonel after a highly distinguished career with the New Jersey State Police, began working last week, multiple department and city sources said Tuesday.It wasn't clear why city officials didn't announce the appointment, nor at which public meeting it was made. At their request, Daily Voice has emailed City Manager Vincent Caruso seeking answers. One thing is clear, however: Guidetti has hit the ground running. "We've been getting memos from him already on things like internal policies and expectations," one department member said.

    (CNN)New York City Mayor Eric Adams and police officials on Wednesday released data showing that the number of people arrested three or more times a year for crimes such as robbery, burglary and grand larceny increased significantly during the first six months of 2022. Adams, a moderate Democrat and former police officer, has made calls for a change in bail laws to give judges discretion to consider a defendant's "dangerousness" to the community a key part of efforts to combat rising crime in the city. In New York, unlike every other state, judges can't consider the harm a defendant may pose to others in setting bail. Adams and NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell said judges should be able to consider public safety and be allowed to remand defendants at their arraignments "based on the severity of their alleged crimes or their history of recidivism."Adams on Wednesday insisted the release of the new data on recidivism and its role in the city's crime wave was not an attack on bail reform but a rather window into what he called a "revolving door...
    New York City Mayor Eric Adams said New Yorkers want more police on the streets to help combat the sweeping crime wave that has seen murders and violent crimes up 40% compared to last year.  'Public safety and the criminal justice system includes police and when I go to my communities of color, and I’ve never heard them, never, heard them say: "Eric we want less police." Never,' Adams said on the Tavis Smiley radio show Tuesday. Major crimes in NYC have risen approximately 37%, according to NYPD data, an increase that has been mainly boosted by grand larcenies, robberies and auto thefts. Adams indicated he won't be entertaining calls to decrease the number of cops in the city, but will discourage 'heavy-handed' policing from NYPD officers. Police officers are part of the mayor's 'public safety apparatus,' he said, adding: 'You can't remove police from this equation,' which includes dealing with the issues around homelessness and improving the school system.  He added that he doesn't plan to stop talking about the crime in the Big Apple anytime soon, and said...
    FREMONT — More than a month after a federal jury decided Fremont owes nearly $10.3 million to the family of a 16-year-old pregnant girl fatally shot by some of its police officers, the city is asking a judge to override the verdict, lower the amount of damages or agree to a new trial. An attorney for the family of Elena Mondragon said the city’s approach is designed to delay justice for the family more than five years after Mondragon’s death in March 2017. “The city continues to bury its head in the sand and wants to ignore the ugly truth, which is that their officers are responsible for the death of a 16-year-old pregnant girl,” Adante Pointer, an attorney for the family said in an interview. “It sounds as if they’re going to maintain that position even in the face of a jury verdict and public outcry,” Pointer said. On March 14, 2017, Mondragon was one of four people in a BMW driven by Rico Tiger, a man police wanted on suspicion of multiple violent armed robberies in the Bay...
    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Gripped by gun violence that’s affecting cities across the nation, the mayor of Portland, Oregon, on Thursday issued a new emergency declaration with the goal of reducing gun killings by at least 10% over the next two years. The initiative directs $2.4 million to community groups and prevention efforts. “Emergency declarations can get results the status quo cannot,” Wheeler said during a briefing at City Hall. “We will not stop until the gun violence stops.” The number of shootings in Oregon’s biggest city soared above 670 in the first half of 2022 – ahead of the pace for the same period last year. Guns have been fueling a surge of deadly violence in Portland in a trend that’s been playing out across the U.S. Firearm homicide rates nationwide jumped 35% between 2019 and 2020, the highest rate in more than 25 years, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    A small army of 376 federal, state, and local law-enforcement officers disastrously botched their tactical response to the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, a preliminary report by an investigative committee of the Texas House of Representatives revealed Sunday, painting a picture of dysfunction that went well beyond an embattled school police chief. The 77-page report—a page for each minute of the video showcasing the massacre—was the product of about 40 interviews with witnesses, including school police officers, the district superintendent, the school’s principal, and others. It provided a fresh rundown of what happened inside the building, a profile of the gunman who got inside, and a beat-by-beat account of how mistakes or inaction by officers, the school, and the family of the shooter led to catastrophe. “The Committee issues this interim report now, believing the victims, their families, and the entire Uvalde community have already waited too long for answers and transparency,” the report read, according to the Texas Tribune, which along with CNN obtained an advance copy. A definitive account of how cops responded to the...

    Brooke Jenkins, 40, is the new San Francisco DA San Francisco's new no-nonsense DA Brooke Jenkins wants to give police access to private surveillance cameras in homes and businesses in an effort to crackdown on open-air drug markets and theft.  In a drastic shift from her woke predecessor Chesa Boudin, Jenkins - who took office on Friday - wants to expand the current access that police forces have and allow them to tap into the cameras to monitor the crimes in real-time.  It is part of her widespread crack down on crime in the city, which she says has succumb to lawlessness in the name of criminal justice reform.  Jenkins, 40, was sworn in by Mayor London Breed last week.

    Donny Ubiera, 32, randomly stabbed two men in back-to-back incidents over the course of the weekend just after being released from jail on Thursday A man was arrested in Queens after going on a slashing spree, wounding two people on New York City's subway system in as many days, just a day after being detained and let go from jail for carrying a knife. Donny Ubiera, 32, randomly stabbed two commuters on Friday and Saturday while riding on a Flushing-to-Times Square 7-line subway train, the NYPDs said in a press release. One of the victims was stabbed in the face, while the other sustained neck injuries. Ubiera had just been released from jail on Thursday after being arrested just a day before for allegedly refusing to put a knife away in front of police, who had ordered him to do so. He initially waved the weapon at them and tried to flee with it. Police said that Ubiera had been ran in trouble with the law at least 19 times before last week's stabbings, including three previous arrests in 2022.      ...

    Voters moved to recall San Francisco's woke district attorney on Tuesday, leaving residents to wonder who will next be tasked with tackling the city's soaring crime.  Mayor London Breed, who never shied from voicing her disapproval of ousted DA Chesa Boudin, will solely appoint the city's next prosecutor.  Analysts predict the centrist Democrat will select a candidate with a tough-on-crime stance and whose views are more ideologically-aligned with her own.   Boudin, 41, was cast out Tuesday by a more than 60 percent vote in the recall election. He had been widely expected to lose his job after residents of the California enclave had become increasingly worried about violent crime.  The former public defender was elected in January 2020. He was made the target of a multi-million-dollar recall campaign earlier this year by residents who say the city has become an increasingly unsafe place to live due to his soft-on-crime policies.

    ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — The Capitol City has a new top cop. Deputy Chief Jeremy Ellison will serve as St. Paul’s interim police chief until a permanent replacement is picked. He spoke with WCCO’s Reg Chapman about his plans, and why he’s not ready to take the full-time job just yet. READ MORE: Video Shows Minnesota Teacher Throwing Hockey Stick At 8-Year-Old Student“This is like the front porch of St. Paul. It’s a place where you can come on down here grab a park bench and have a conversation,” said Jeremy Ellison. Ellison wanted to do just that in Mears Park, a section of downtown he served as commander for years. Now not just the front porch of St. Paul, but the entire city, is his to serve and protect. “It’s important for me especially as I continue to move up the ranks in the police department to understand what is actually happening on the streets in our city and to make sure that I am being responsive to our community,” Ellison said.

    SALINAS — The Monterey County District Attorney’s Office has released more information regarding the fatal shooting by police that took place in Sand City Wednesday morning. According to a release from the DA’s Office, the incident began at 8:32 a.m. when a Sand City police officer initiated a traffic stop on a brown Chevy Impala on Orange Avenue. The driver and sole occupant of the Impala did not yield, the DA’s Office said, but instead drove around “in about a 5-block radius … not at a high speed.” The driver ultimately stopped at the intersection of Orange Avenue and Catalina Street. He stopped because he was blocked by police cars both to the front and rear of his Impala, the DA’s Office said. By the time the driver stopped, multiple patrol cars from Sand City and Seaside police departments were at the scene.

    Never let it be said that America refuses to do anything about the continued brutal murders of our nation's children by weapons designed for warfare. The first real consequence, aside from the lifelong physical and mental trauma inflicted on the survivors, the families of victims, and the entire town of Uvalde, Texas, has made itself known: Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District Chief of Police Peter Arredondo's swearing-in ceremony for his newly won position on the City Council was to take place on Tuesday, but will be temporarily postponed due to the town's need to focus on nearly two dozen memorial ceremonies, continued law enforcement investigations, press events, and other duties thrust upon it after 19 elementary school children and two teachers were murdered by a disgruntled teenager with two newly purchased AR-15s. Arredondo will still take his seat on the council, mind you. He was elected to a City Council seat earlier in the month, having swamped his opposition by gaining 126 total votes. For any grade-schoolers studying fractions on our site today, that is roughly six votes per murdered...
    New research suggests that improving how walkable D.C. is would require more than adding sidewalks and access to transportation around town. The Urban Institute’s new report on walkability argued that exposure to noise and air pollution, how close someone is to schools, jobs and hospitals and fewer interactions with the police all contribute to how appealing walking is for residents in the District’s various neighborhoods. More D.C. News More Local News Addressing each of those criteria would make D.C.’s walkability more racially equitable, which the think tank said has long been an issue in U.S. city planning. “Walkability across the U.S. is highly racialized, with communities of color living in less-walkable neighborhoods that have fewer street lights, higher speed limits, and more police stops per capita,” the report said. For instance, the Urban Institute said that wealthier neighborhoods with a higher proportion of white residents in Northwest have few encounters with police, little air or noise pollution and some of the safest streets for walking. Meanwhile, the neighborhoods across the Anacostia River — which have a higher proportion...
    SAN JOSE – Recent incidents involving a former code enforcement inspector and a police officer have spurred the city of San Jose to introduce a new policy that will immediately place employees accused of crimes on administrative leave until an initial investigation is done. The San Jose Police Department announced the policy Friday afternoon. It applies to employees credibly accused of crimes such as sexual misconduct, assault and bribery. “These revisions reflect our deep commitment to doing everything possible to prevent similar incidents in the future,” Police Chief Anthony Mata said in a statement. “In every case, immediate action and collaboration with the City Manager’s Office will ensure that decisions to remove an officer or city employee from contact with the public are made at the highest levels and with the greatest urgency,” he continued. “Protecting the public is paramount; that is what this policy intends to do.” The new policy comes just days after Mayor Sam Liccardo called for a probe into police handling of employees accused of sexual misconduct. Former code inspector William Gerry was sentenced last week...

Jayleen Burgos, of Bridgeport, who had been missing since Wednesday, March 30, has been located in New York City, safe, and reunited with her family, said Capt.

    (CNN)A law banning New York law enforcement from using either a chokehold or a move that compresses someone's diaphragm during an arrest has been reinstated after a state Supreme Court appeals court ruling on Thursday. The court's ruling reversed a June 2021 decision by the state Supreme Court that deemed the law "unnecessarily vague" and voided the ban in its entirety. A coalition of police unions brought the lawsuit against the city in 2020.New York Police Department officials have previously argued that chokeholds were already banned by the department and that officers are taught that once someone is subdued, they should be placed sitting up so they can breathe freely. The "diaphragm" law, which was maligned by state law enforcement and policing advocates, was passed by the city council in the aftermath of George Floyd's May 2020 death. It made it a criminal misdemeanor to use a restraint method that restricts the flow of air or blood by compressing the windpipe or carotid arteries or by sitting, kneeling, or standing on the chest or back "in a manner that compresses...
