GIRARD, Ohio -Oct 22 2017
Police have identified the officer killed after a shooting in Girard Saturday night.
Police say that 31-year-old Justin Leo died at the hospital after being shot by a suspect in a home at 408 Indiana Ave.
The suspect, whose name has not been released, allegedly shot Leo and was then fatally shot by another officer and died inside the home.
Neighbors said they heard the gunshots around 10:15 p.m. Saturday.
Several agencies across Trumbull County responded to the incident, including Liberty police and the Trumbull County Sheriff's Department.
The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation held a press conference early Sunday morning and announced that they are still looking into the circumstances surrounding the shooting.
Police were called out to the home in reference to a domestic situation involving a firearm, according to BCI officials.
According to radio traffic, the suspect had several firearms inside and had been drinking all day.
They say as officers approached the home, officers had a brief conversation with the male inside.
"Initial reports indicate the man pulled a gun and shot a Girard police officer. The second officer returned fire and the male inside was hit and pronounced dead at the scene," said BCI Special Agent James Ciotti.
Girard Mayor Jim Melfi was also present at the press conference.
"Justin Leo was a young man I knew most of his life. An absolute gentleman and someone who the city has been proud of since he had been here with us. Our communities, prayers and thoughts go out to Leo's family," said Mayor Melfi.
Arron Wayland lives across the street from the home where the shootings took place and witnessed the entire incident.
"Out of nowhere, one shot rang out," said Wayland.  "And then immediately, three more shots. "
Another witness, Judy Worley who lives nearby, said she watched as crews tried to save the police officer.
"They rushed the officer to the hospital in an ambulance," stated Worley.  "They were giving him CPR".
Leo was a five-year veteran of the Girard Police Department.

Police say the identity of the suspect is being withheld and will be released by the Trumbull County Coroner's Office.

Wanted felon found inside Roseburg High School

Joshua Templeton

Roseburg OR Oct 22 2017 
A wanted felon who was later found to be in possession of 50 grams of methamphetamine was arrested at Roseburg High School after police say he snuck into the school’s faculty lounge Thursday morning.
Principal Jill Weber said a food service door was left unlocked to allow for a morning bread delivery that occurs at around 6:30 a.m. A few minutes later the wanted felon, later identified as 32-year-old Joshua Allen Templeton of Woodburn, slipped through the door and walked into the faculty room just a few feet away from the entrance.
The school’s security officer, Kenneth Fraizer, who had already made contact with Templeton earlier that morning and instructed the man to leave campus, soon found Templeton in the lounge and called the police.
An officer walked into the lounge, which was clearly labeled with a sign, and found Templeton sleeping in a chair with a plate of food on the table in front of him, which he allegedly took from the staff refrigerator, according to court documents. He was arrested at approximately 7 a.m. without further incident.
At the Douglas County Jail, staff searched Templeton’s wallet and found two plastic baggies that contained methamphetamine, according to police. Templeton’s backpack was also searched, and inside, police found a purple Crown Royal bag which was stuffed with four large baggies containing approximately 50 grams of methamphetamine. Both the methamphetamine and the scale were not found inside of the high school, Weber said.
Classes begin at 7:40 a.m., but Weber said most of the school’s buses arrive on campus between 7 and 7:10 a.m. to allow students an opportunity to eat breakfast. However, she said the school’s staff responded to the situation promptly, that Templeton was taken by police “very, very quickly,” and that “there was no incident.”
Weber said the arrest gives the school a chance to review protocol.
“We’re making some changes to ensure that where there are deliveries, someone is there to lock and re-lock the door until security is there at the door because we do take this very seriously and we want to ensure that our staff and students are always safe,” she said.
Templeton was arrested on suspicion of methamphetamine possession, methamphetamine delivery within 1,000 feet of a school, second-degree burglary and third-degree theft. He was also found to have a warrant out of the Oregon State Penitentiary on suspicion of escape.
Gary Klopfenstein of the Roseburg Police Department said Templeton did not climb over the prison walls and shouldn’t be considered an “escaped inmate,” although information about Templeton’s warrant was not readily available and calls to the Oregon State Police were not immediately returned.
“I would’ve let you know if an escaped convict was running around,” Klopfenstein said.

Templeton does, however, have a lengthy criminal history, with multiple burglary convictions from 2005, 2006, 2009 and 2015.
Weber said the term “escaped convict” can have different definitions and that people are assuming the worst.
“It can be that he was released from prison and he should be checking in with his parole officer and he didn’t,” she said. “People have this opinion that — and it can be sensationalized to a point — where it sounds like he escaped from prison and was here to do harm.

“Really, he just slid in and was asleep within minutes,” she said.

Lawsuit filed against Rio Rancho Whataburger and security guard in fatal shooting

Related image

Rio Rancho NM Oct 22 2017 A wrongful death lawsuit filed last week alleges that a security guard posted at a Rio Rancho Whataburger fatally shot an unarmed customer in December after a confrontation at the drive-through window.
David Wayne Tenorio died of his injuries weeks after the Dec. 3 shooting at the burger chain’s N.M. 528 location.
The lawsuit filed in state District Court in Santa Fe on Oct. 13 alleges that someone riding in a truck “engaged in an exchange of belligerent comments” with an employee in the drive-through. An employee then told Joe Archuleta, the store security guard, who was working for No Stone Unturned Security, which contracted with Whataburger, to “take care” of the truck occupants. Tenorio, who was unarmed, was a passenger in the vehicle.
The lawsuit alleges the truck was still in the restaurant parking lot, and the security guard pointed a gun at the group and ordered them to get out. Tenorio stepped out of the truck, as ordered. And at some point, the suit alleges, Archuleta shot him.
The lawsuit suggests the security guard did not carry the correct firearm certification to work as an armed guard. And it argues that No Stone Unturned Security may not have held the appropriate licensure and registration to operate as a private patrol company.
The family is seeking compensation for funeral expenses, pain and suffering, lost earning capacity and lost enjoyment of life, among other damages. Named as defendants are Archuleta, No Stone Unturned Security and Whataburger.
The suit alleges Whataburger did not properly vet the security company and shouldn’t have allowed its employees to “antagonize and provoke a customer.”
A spokeswoman for Whataburger said in a statement that the company is “committed to offering a safe restaurant,” and as part of that commitment “engage national security guard firms at many of our restaurants in the communities we serve, including Rio Rancho.” She said the company can’t comment on the specifics of the incident because a lawsuit is pending.
Multiple attempts to reach No Stone Unturned Security were unsuccessful.

And the attorney representing Tenorio’s family was unavailable.

Shots fired during Memphis armored truck robbery attempt

 Image result for Bank customers describe shootout during attempted armored truck robbery
MEMPHIS, Tenn. Oct 21 2017 — Memphis police continue to search for an attempted robbery suspect after nabbing another one in a neighborhood near the Greenline around 4 p.m. Friday.
Both men are suspected of shooting at the driver of an armored Brinks truck during an attempted robbery at the Regions Bank on Summer Avenue near Waring.
Eighteen-year-old Beth Culver and her mother, Cindy, are two regulars at the bank.
“We’re so close with the people that work here,” said Beth Culver.
The women were pulling out of the parking lot around 2:15 p.m. when they saw one of the suspects shooting at the truck driver.
"We just saw a white car pull up on the curb, jump out and run toward the Brinks truck and we saw a guy in a light blue shirt shooting [in] that direction," said Cindy Culver.
Both Culvers said the driver started shooting back at the suspects, who took off.
"It was like, 10 to 12 shots," said Cindy Culver.
At first, they feared the bullets might start flying in their direction, and so they fled.
But once the shooting stopped, they turned back.
"They were, like, 'I can’t just kind of run from this,' and that’s when they decided to call the 911 and everything," said Kelci Culver, who arrived at the scene after getting a call from her sister and mother.
Kelci Culver said her mother, a former EMT, wanted to check on the driver.
"Make sure that everybody is okay until an ambulance or something could get here," said Kelci Culver.
Thankfully, everyone was okay -- and Cindy Culver says that's what's important.

"Just thankful that I can go home and put my arms around my daughter and say, ‘Thank you, God,’ that she’s okay and not hurt," she said.

Disgruntled employee brought gun to Michigan Ford plant, killed himself

Woodhaven MI Oct 21 2017 After initial reports of an active shooter situation at a Ford plant in Woodhaven, Michigan, police confirmed Friday that the suspect killed himself and did not fire at anybody else.
The plant was evacuated on Friday morning amid reports of gunfire.
“A disgruntled employee came in, there was a labor relation issue, at some point he presented a gun," said Woodhaven Deputy Chief Scott Fraczek. "He did not fire at anybody. When officers were called, as they were approaching the subject, he pulled a gun and killed himself.”
Earlier, Michigan State Police had confirmed they were on the scene of an "active shooter situation" at the plant.

D.C.-Area Police Departments Operating With Fewer Sworn Officers Than Authorized

Washington DC Oct 21 2017 More than a dozen Washington, D.C.-area police departments are operating with fewer sworn officers than they’re authorized to have on staff, according to an investigation by the News4 I-Team.
The implications of these shortages vary, but police unions said the records obtained by the I-Team demonstrate a growing concern among rank and file officers.
Police departments are facing increasing competition for new recruits to bolster their staffing levels, according to several law enforcement officials who spoke with the I-Team. Several local police departments, including Maryland State Police and Prince William County police have released recruitment videos to help attract prospective hires.
Public records obtained by the I-Team show Virginia State Police, Prince William County (Va.) Police, the Loudoun County (Va.) Sheriff’s Office, Maryland State Police, Frederick County (Md.) Sheriff’s Office, Hagerstown (Md.) Police, Gaithersburg (Md.) Police, Frederick City Police, Montgomery County (Md.) Police, and Howard County (Md.) Police and are operating with fewer sworn officers than they’re authorized to have under local rules or budgets.
Several agencies, including Prince William County, Howard County and Gaithersburg, said the shortfalls in sworn officers do not impact public safety. Others acknowledged concerns that could impact their response times.
“We make sure our patrol, which are our first of the first responders, are as close to fully staffed as possible at all times. When staffing levels are low, certain sworn positions in non-essential offices and divisions are kept vacant until overall levels increase,” said Prince William County Police spokesman Jonathan Perok.
A spokeswoman for the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office said, “The major impact clearly reduces the number of deputies on the street per shift on any given day which reduces the availability of Deputies to handle calls for service from the public.”
“Our patrol shifts work at a minimum staffing level," she said. "If that number falls below the minimum it requires the agency to keep someone past their normal shift or call in replacements. In the long-term leave impact hold overs create fatigue and burn out issues within the agency.”
Agency records obtained under the freedom of information act reveal internal concerns about staffing levels in at least local police departments. In an application for funding from the U.S. Justice Department, Charles County, Maryland, sheriff’s officials said it needed financial help to hire seven additional officers. In its request, the sheriff’s office said from 2015 to 2016 “homicides, rapes, robberies and aggravated assaults are up by 8.6 percent. This is of great concern.”
The Charles County aid application also said, “Meanwhile, the population of Charles County has increased by nearly 8,200 residents and (the sheriff’s office) has added no additional officers in that time frame.”
In a similar aid application, Washington, D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department said it also needed federal aid to help hire additional officers. The agency acknowledged it has fewer than the 4,000 officers it is authorized to employ. A police official wrote the U.S. Justice Department to request funding to help hire additional officers to “address the evolving nature of violent crime and the dangerous offenders who perpetrate these offenses.”
National police unions said these staffing shortages create a risk to the public and to the officers. National Fraternal Order of Police President Chuck Canterbury said police departments that fail to employ the authorized number of officers risk suffering slower response times to crimes and are less equipped to provide preventive patrols that deter crimes.
“Preventive policing takes a back seat and standards for recruitment slide when police are understaffed,” Canterbury said.
Recruitment is growing more difficult for police agencies because of increasing competition from private sector jobs with higher salaries amid a rebounding economy, Canterbury said. Prospective police officers are also discouraged by recent assaults on law enforcement officers, he said.
Union representatives of U.S. Park Police said staffing shortages are also impacting federal law enforcement.
“We need people. We need to recruit them, train them and put them on the street. All of these things cost money,” said Ian Glick, who represents Park Police officers in D.C., New York City and San Francisco.
U.S. Park Police records show a nearly 10 percent reduction in sworn U.S. Park Police officers between 2010 and 2016.

In a statement, a spokeswoman for the Charles County Sheriff’s Office said, “Fortunately, in Charles County, our crime numbers have not kept pace with the significant growth in population. But, we realize things could change quickly and if that happens, we would be dealing with more calls for service, more crime, and more problems, which could ultimately impact the way we work. Here is one example: Today we are heavily involved in community relations and community events, but any continuous rise in crime trends could limit our ability to participate in those events. We don’t want that to happen because communities that have strong relationships with their police departments, like we have, simply tend to thrive better. There is more trust, more communication and more problem solving. We would hate to lose what we have worked so hard to build.”

Clarion Security company founder named "Women Business Owner of the Year''


Memphis TN Oct 21 2017 The founder of a Memphis security guard firm has been named the "Women Business Owner of the Year'' by the National Association of Women Business Owners.
Kim Heathcott was honored at the association's four-day meeting in Minneapolis this week for growing her 8-year-old company, Clarion Security, into a $10 million business.
She founded the firm with one employee and no clients in 2009, and now it's the largest woman-owned business in Memphis with 450 employees.
The national association was founded 42 years ago and has 26 chapters across the nation.
Before founding Clarion, Heathcott worked in financial services, with an emphasis in fraud auditing and control investigations. She served as president in 2013 of the Memphis Chapter of the National Association of Woman Owned Businesses.
She holds an undergraduate degree in economics from Vanderbilt University, with a minor in business administration, and received an MBA from Southern Methodist University.
Clarion has made a mark in part for the way it treats its employees. For example, concerned that Clarion's security officers were eating most of their work-time meals out of vending machines, she and her husband, Larry, started providing a free meal to each employee every shift, the Heathcotts told The Commercial Appeal in 2011.
The couple even started attending the earlier Sunday morning church service so employees would not have to wait as long for the lunches, often delivered by the Heathcotts themselves.
Clarion contracted with a nursing company to provide monthly wellness clinics for employees.

For the security guard industry, Clarion has experienced a much lower-than-average turnover rate among employees.

Hammond IN Oct 21 2017 A Gary police officer has been charged with theft after Hammond police said he used a self-serve checkout repeatedly at a store where he was working security to improperly receive nearly $500 in change during numerous transactions, according to court documents.
George Edward Dickerson III, 42, was charged in Lake Superior Court with misdemeanor theft. His defense attorney, Jamise Perkins, said Thursday that Dickerson's resigned from the Gary Police Department.
Assistant Gary City Attorney Rodney Pol Jr., said the city's Civil Service Commission will meet Nov. 2 on the disciplinary matter. Dickerson's resignation wasn't formally accepted at the hearing last week, he said.
Court records indicate Dickerson was working security March 4 at Walmart in Hammond. A store employee had accidentally put the wrong denominations of cash into the money slots at a self-checkout register at the store, documents state.
At 8:12 a.m. that day, Dickerson allegedly went to a self-checkout register and purchased cheese and a drink, which totaled $4.48. He inserted a $20 bill and 48 cents, and instead of receiving $16 in change, Dickerson received $45, according to probable cause affidavit. Dickerson then purchased Doritos at the same register, inserted $20 and instead of receiving $18.52 in change, he received another $45, records stated. A minute later, Dickerson purchased a candy bar for $1.22 at the same register and received $45 in change after inserting another $20, according to records.
In a little more than an hour, Dickerson allegedly made 11 purchases and received a total of $495 in change to which he was not entitled, court records state.
Each of the transactions was captured on video surveillance and an asset protection manager obtained receipts for each of them, records state.
The charge, which is punishable by up to one year in jail, was filed Sept. 28 in the county division. A summons was sent Oct. 10 to Dickerson's home in Merrillville. Dickerson's initial hearing has been scheduled for Dec. 20 before Judge Sheila Moss. Perkins said her client will plead not guilty.

Dickerson, who had been a Gary police officer for about 8 1/2 years, had been assigned to the Lake County/Gary Metro Homicide Unit, officials said.

Image result for Baby Found Dead in Parking Lot, Woman and Girl Hospitalized

Los Angeles CA Oct 21 2017 Security cameras provided investigators with one of their few leads in the mysterious case of a baby found dead with a naked woman and girl Thursday morning in a South Los Angeles store parking lot.
The Los Angeles Police Department Newton Division received a call of a woman and two children unresponsive at about 2 a.m. Thursday and responded to 23rd Street and San Pedro Street.

TX Security Officers Shoot-Kill 3 People In 48 Hrs.

Houston TX Oct 20 2017

There have been three fatal shootings involving security officers in Texas over the past 48 hrs.
All of the shootings remain under investigation and are being submitted to a grand jury.

In the most recent shooting, a security officer shot and killed a man inside a northwest Houston nightclub Wednesday.
According to officers, the shooting was reported shortly before 11:30 p.m. at the Casanova Men's Club in the 2000 block of Antoine. Police said a man came into the business swinging a cane and threatening a security and customers.
Witnesses told police that the man got into a fight with a couple of people inside the club. Investigators said the security guard said he tried to intervene as the man was biting a customer. The security officer said he feared for his life and the safety of others, so he shot the man, who was pronounced dead inside the nightclub. His name has not been released.
Police are reviewing surveillance video from inside the nightclub.
No charges have been filed against the security guard at this time but he case is expected to be presented to a grand jury, Houston police said.
A shooting in Dallas also left a man dead. Police said that there was an armed confrontation and a security fired one shot killing the man.
Police said they are still investigating this shooting but that it looks to be a case of self-defense.

LEOMINSTER MA Oct 20 2017  -- A Fitchburg man was arrested and placed in protective custody early Thursday morning on charges he assaulted a nurse and a security guard at HealthAlliance Hospital, police said.
It was the second incident in less than two weeks in which a patient was charged with attacking hospital staff.
Gerald V. Poirier, 65, of 23 Kelley Ave., was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (shod foot), disturbing the peace, and resisting arrest for the incident, which took place at the hospital just before 2 a.m.
Police Sgt. John Fraher said Poirier, who had been a patient of the hospital, tried to strike a nurse and succeeded in kicking a security guard in the face when hospital staff tried to discharge him.
Poirier refused to leave the hospital, become aggressive with hospital staff and was uncooperative with officers who arrived at the scene, Fraher said.
Police arrested Poirier and placed him in protective custody, which Fraher explained is done when someone is deemed intoxicated to the point of incapacitation.
Poirier remained in custody Thursday pending his arraignment.
On Oct. 10 a female patient was charges with attacking a nurse, scratching her across the face. At the time, the nurse told police that she had been treating the patient when the patient lunged at her unprovoked and grabbed her face. The patient was issued a court summons by police for the Oct. 10 incident.

Jackson police firearms instructor shot by officer

JACKSON, TN Oct 20 2017
A Jackson police officer was rushed to the hospital early Wednesday afternoon after being shot and wounded during a firearms training session.
According to Jackson police, the firearms instructor injured in the shooting has been treated and released from the hospital. Law enforcement officers describe the incident as a horrible accident. They are still working to figure out how it happened.
“Tough time for the police department today,” Police Chief Julian Wiser said. “We got two officers, one injured the other extremely distraught.”
Officers met Wednesday afternoon for a quarterly gun training at the Fraternal Order of Police range on Cotton Grove Road. Just before 2 p.m., the firearms instructor was accidentally shot by another officer.
“Officers at the scene administered first aid until emergency medical services arrived on scene,” Chief Wiser said.
The unidentified gun instructor was taken by helicopter to Memphis. Jackson police later said the injured officer has been treated and released.
“We just ask that you pray for both these officers and their families,” Chief Wiser said.
Department policy requires an administrative shoot team take a closer look to see how it happened. “Once that’s complete we’ll be able to release more information at that time,” Chief Wiser said.
Wiser said during his time with the department he’s never witnessed anything like it before. “Been here over 20 years and this is the first incident where we had an officer accidentally shot during training to my knowledge.”

Chief Wiser says the names of the officers involved won’t be released at this time. The Fraternal Order of Police range is a common location Jackson police use for firearms training.
