Rank #3: Ep 17: The Fools in Ferguson

Podcast cover
Read more

I get that people want and that a real change needs to happen in the City of Ferguson, Missouri, but shooting two police officers will do nothing to allow change to happen. In fact...it may make matters worse.

There are many people who look at what has happened in Ferguson since Michael Brown was shot and believe that much of the violence, desruction and rioting was nothing more than an excuse to act in a lawless manner and take advantage of an opportunity.

Then the 2 Department of Justice reports came out and many people thought, "Hold on...there was a corrupt judiciary, a corrupt town and a corrupt police command." Moderate conservatives started to recognize that real change was needed and a community truly did need healing.

The 2 officers are shot without justification...so much for getting support. I know people that have said, "The community deserves what they get."I won't use some of the other words that were used, but to say empathy has been lost would be an understatement!

Now we wait for an investigation to end and arrests to be made...and we wait.

Hopefully the investigators have access to Geofeedia to grab as much infomation that is available as possible.

Rank #7: Episode 2: The Police Podcast With Chris Hurst, Lowell Police Department

Podcast cover
Read more

In today's episode, we talk with Sgt. Chris Hurst of the Lowell Police Department about hitting a grand slam run with one simple video that only added to their string of home runs they have accumulated with their community outreach. 

The Lowell Police Department

The City of Lowell is a farm community in Kent county Michigan, approximately 15 miles east of Grand Rapids. The jurisdiction is 3.1 square miles and has a population of approximately 4000.  

The business base is retail, dinning, fast food, manufacturing, and agricultural. 

The Lowell Police Department is a full time, 24 hour department.  We employ 6 fulltime officers, 13 part time officers, two full time civilians on staff, and volunteer Retired Senior Volunteer Patrol (RSVP).  We primarily run one car per shift. Our staff consists of a Chief of Police, Patrol Sergeant, a detective (dual role as a patrol officer), and two full time patrol officers.  Because we are a small department, the Patrol sergeant is also responsible to respond to calls and general patrol.

We run 12 hour shifts (6a-6p/6p-6a), with supplemental officers on the weekends as a second car in the summer on weekend evenings.  Our part time staff are fully certified officers and fill in for the full time for vacations, training, and other time off.  The part time officers are responsible to hold the same standard as the full time.

Our RSVP personnel are seniors from our community who volunteer their time helping out the department with non-law enforcement tasks at events, property checks, and so forth.  They are uniformed and use a marked department (non- patrol) vehicle.

We have two Ford Explorer Interceptors, two Chevy Impala’s, two unmarked Impala’s (Detective & Chief car), a Chevy S-10 for our RSVP patrol, a John Deere Gator (for our local fair), and a former USMC motorcycle.  Our vehicles are fully equipped with on board cameras and laptops.  We carry the X26 Taser, the Bushmaster AR15, Freeze +P spray, and the AXOM Taser Body Cameras.

We rely on the Kent County Sheriff Department for lodging our arrestees and for processing OWI drivers (Datamaster Breathalyzer). 

Beyond the normal law enforcement work, we are a community policing department.  We unlock cars, assist our citizens with loose animals, conduct ordinance enforcement, respond to medical emergencies, conduct child seat checks, shop with a cop, our now famous “surprise traffic stop Christmas video”, conduct property checks for residents of vacation or away for an extended period of time,  and assist with other problems that may arise in the community.  Lowell PD also hosts a Citizens Police Academy for those that qualify.

SGT Chris Hurst

National Guard Duty: Enlisted in 1983 in Big Rapids, MI, retired from duty in October of 2003.  I spent 20 years with the 126th and 125th Infantry Regiment.  I retired at the rank of Sergeant First Class/E-7, Platoon Sergeant.  I was part of a heavy weapons company and qualified with the TOW missile system, a vehicle mounted weapon used to destroy enemy armor and fortifications.  I trained and qualified in an assortment of weapons and vehicle systems (Humvee, M113 APC, M901 ITV, and the ¼ ton truck (jeep))

Lowell Police Department:

I was hired as a part time officer in March of 1994, then brought on as a full time officer in October of 1994.  I have had multiple experiences with Lowell PD.  I have been a DARE officer for the elementary and middle schools and the detective.  I am currently the patrol sergeant, the firearms instructor, infection control officer, and one of the department trainers for reality based training. I am also responsible for general patrol and policing duties.  I assist with the West Michigan Criminal Justice job and decided to stay after she graduated.  We police the many parks in our county.

Chris Hsiung is a Captain with the Mountain View Police Department in California and was instrumental in bringing social media to the northern California department.

Captain Hsiung was the Public Information Officer in 2012 when the Mountain View PD adopted social media as a way to connect with and build better relationships online with their community that would benefit their in person interactions as well.

Mountain View PD has a great relationship with their citizens and their corporate partners due in part to embracing an open, transparent relationship that is focused on service. 

Chris is now the Captain in charge of the Patrol side of the MPD house. As he says, "If it's a uniform function, it falls under my team's command."

Everyone in the Orlando area remembers vividly the events that happened in the early morning hours of June 12th, 2016.

At 2:02 am, The Pulse Nightclub Shooting began and over the next couple of days the reality of one of the worst shootings in the history of the United States took place.

But, for the Orlando Police Department Public Relations Office, June 10th and 11th were very busy days that prepared them for what was about to take the worlds attention.

Wanda Miglio and Michelle hold down those responsibilities in a truly team approach to keeping the public informed through the Orlando Police Social Media channels and the main-stream media.

The end of Operation Safe Streets took place on June 10th, the culmination of a month long project to help make Orlando safer removing crime guns and offenders from the streets.

Later that night, the murder of Christina Grimmie, an up and coming YouTube star who was performing at the Plaza Live Theater, took place. Due to her rising fame and recent success on The Voice the national media ascended on Orlando to cover the story.

June 11th, the team made sure that the information about Christina Grimmie went out throughout the day. Add into the mix a couple of full SWAT callouts, they department and the PIOs were kept busy.

And then… The Pulse Shooting took place.

Wanda and Michelle quickly went into action determining the priorities that had to be identified to effectively do their job. Listen as they share the events from their perspective.

There are hundreds and hundreds of social platforms and networks that we can use to message our audience and multiple mediums that we cad do it in.

The question has to be asked, "Should we blast our information out there like a shotgun or be accurate with lazer like focus of a rifle?"

There are great argumetns for each side of the equation so here is my suggestions.

Always have laser like focus and if you choose to use multiple platforms, aim your shotgun with a rifle scope. Provide the best infromation availble that you can for all the platforms you use with native content.

Heres to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. Theyre not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo.

You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you cant do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward.

And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. - Attibuted to Steve Jobs

get backed up by data, you have a pretty solid foundation for
