RealWorld Tactical Fitness Tactical Training Program (FITTAC) and SPEEDING AND RADAR

Our Fitness Tactical Training Program consists of 3 Elements, some form of physical fitness, Mixed Martial Arts and Firearms training. In this video I show you a glimpse of some of the upcoming programs I am going to bring you on a monthly basis, During all my drills I always keep my heart rate between 170-180 bpm, making it harder for me to keep my fine motor skills in tune. So you will see me make mistakes, be slow to stay accurate, my magazine reloads will not be fast and on point all the time I do this on purpose to get better at a higher heart rate. In this video Iam using Iron sights for all my shooting (griffin armament failsafe sights) which I have never used before. Hope you guys enjoy, Ill be bringing different drills and routines, every month so stay tuned.







  

SPEEDING AND RADAR
By Kenneth A. Vercammen

It is well established that the prosecution of a defendant for a motor vehicle violation is a quasi-criminal proceeding. In such a proceeding the burden of proof is upon the state to establish all elements of the offense beyond a reasonable doubt.
In every charge of a speeding violation, the complaint or summons should specify (l) the speed at which the defendant is alleged to have driven, (2) the speed which is prima facie unlawful, and (3) the time and place of the alleged violation.
A sign showing a speed limit is merely notice of the law or an ordinance or regulation prohibiting a greater speed. The sign itself does not set the speed limit. There can be no conviction for violation of the edict of a posted sign, but only for violation of the statute, ordinance, or regulation having the force of law. There are many unauthorized signs in the state which may serve as a warning but have no effect in creating an offense.

Radar

Speed-measuring radar in various forms has been accepted since State v. Dantonio 18 N.J. 570 (1955), where the N.J. Supreme Court held it is not essential that the court determine the precise speed at which the vehicle was being operated when the alleged offense occurred, and that the operator of the vehicle must be adjudged guilty if the evidence established, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the drive exceeded the statutory speed limit.
It is not necessary for the trial court to make a particular finding as to the precise speed in excess of the speed limit at which the defendant was traveling at the time of the violation. State v. Bookbinder 82 N.J. Super. 179, 183 (App. Div. 1964).
However, if the defendant is found guilty, the trial court should determine the quantum of excess was so many miles per hour in exercising its discretion as to the penalty to be imposed within the statutory limitation. The precise speed a motorist was traveling thus is material only on the question as to the penalty to be imposed, not on the question of guilt or innocence.

State v. Readding 169 N.J. Super. 238 (Law Div. 1978), restated the general rule that in order for the radar speedometer reading to be admissible into evidence, it should be established that: (l) the device is scientifically reliable; (2) the particular speedometer used in the case being tried is accurate; (3) the operator is qualified; and (4) the device was operated properly in the case being tried.

How Radar Operates

In State v. Wojtkowiak 170 N.J. Super. 44 (Law Div. 1979), rev'd on other grounds, 174 N.J. Super. 460, Judge Wells examined in detail the K-55 Radar, and his conclusions were incorporated by the Appellate Division. This case should be read and reread for a detailed explanation of Radar by a Court.
The traffic radar method speed detection measurement depends upon the Doppler effect. Simply stated a radio wave which strikes a moving object is reflected from that object at different frequency from that of the incident wave. A radar which transmits waves and receives reflected waves can determine their frequency difference and calculate the speed of the object which produced the reflective wave.
Courts have accepted as scientifically reliable MPH Industries' K-55 Traffic Radar -- the primary system employed for the purpose of measuring the speed of motor vehicles in New Jersey.
In State v. Wojtkowiak 174 N.J. Super, 460 (App. Div. l980), the appeals court held in all future cases the state should adduce evidence at the municipal court level as to (1) the specific training and extent of experience of the officer operating the radar, (2) the calibration of the machine was checked by at least two external tuning forks both singly and in combination, and (3) the calibration of the speedometer of the patrol car in cases where the K-55 is operating in the moving mode.
MPH Industries, manufacturer and distributor of the K-55, sets forth the following eight points an officer must be able to testify to:
- The officer must establish the time, place and location of the radar device at the time he made the reading.
- The officer must be able to identify the vehicle.
- The officer must identify the defendant as the operator of the vehicle
- The officer must testify that he made a visual observation of the vehicle and that it was going at an excessive rate of speed.
- At the time of the radar reading the officer must testify that the vehicle was out front, by itself, nearest to the radar.
- The officer must state his qualifications and training in radar use.
- The officer must establish that the radar was tested for accuracy both prior and after its use.
- If used in the moving mode, that at the time of the radar reading the patrol speed indicated on the unit compared to the speedometer of the police vehicle.

Qualified Operator?

While it appeared to the court in State v. Wojtkowiak Supra that the K-55 Radar is an accurate and reliable tool for the measurement of speed, its accuracy and reliability in any case are no better than the skill of the person operating the radar. Id. at 174. The court made this emphasis as a warning to all police departments that proper courses of instruction be developed before the K-55 Radar device is employed in any municipality.
A calibration check is accomplished with the use of two tuning forks and their accuracy must be the subject of the documentary proof. Use of the K-55 does not eliminate the need for such proof. State v. Wojtkowiak 170 N.J. Super. at 50, n.1
In State v. Overton 135 N.J. Super 443 (Cty. Ct. 1975), four external tuning forks were used to test the radar unit 12 times within a period of approximately 90 minutes. The court noted there is authority to the effect that a radar unit should be checked for accuracy each time it is set up at a different location. MPH Industries argues this is not necessary with moving radar.
In State v. Readding 160 N.J. Super 238 (Law Div. 1978), the court reiterated the decision in State v. Overton 135 N.J. Super. 443 (Cty. Ct. 1975), where the court found there are three universally accepted methods of testing the accurate operation of a radar speed measuring device:

l. By use of the internal tuning fork built into the machine itself (which the court found to be improper).
2. By running the patrol car with a calibrated speedometer through the "zone of influence" of the radar machine.
3. By use of external tuning forks calibrated at set speeds and which emit sound waves or frequencies identical to those which would come from a vehicle traveling through the Radar bearer at the same speed for which the tuning fork has been cut.

It is also important to recognize that in State v. Readding 160 N.J. Super. 238, the court stated: the proper operation of the device must be proved, usually by detailed reference by the qualified operator to the procedures called for by the manufacturer of the device.

Tuning Forks

Before a radar speed reading is admissible, the state must establish the machine was operating properly. MPH Industries' test procedure uses two tuning forks: First, the lower-speed fork is struck on wood or plastic and the ringing fork is held in a fixed position two to three inches in front of the antenna with the harrow edge of the fork facing the antenna front. This will cause the Patrol Monitor Window to display the fork's speed. While continuing to hold this ringing fork in place, the higher-speed fork is struck and held next to the lower-speed fork (both forks must be vibrating while being held an equal distance from the antenna). The target should then display the "speed" difference between the two forks. For example, if the forks used are 35 mph and 65 mph, then the target window will display the difference, which is 30 mph.

Admissibility of Evidence

The state must establish through documentary evidence the tuning fork itself was accurate. The state must produce and be able to admit into evidence certificates as proof of the accuracy of the devices used for testing the proper operation of the machine.
In State v. Cardone 146 N.J. Super. 23 (App. Div. 1976), the court held that while certificates do not have to satisfy the normal rules of evidence, an Evidence Rule 8 hearing still can be held, at which the court can determine preliminary issues of admissibility of evidence. In such a hearing, the rules of evidence -- except for Rule 4 or a valid claim of privilege -- do not apply. Id. at 28.
The Cardone court found that the certificates of calibration and accuracy of the radar machine -- and for the tuning forks used to test the machine -- were properly admitted in evidence, even though no proof was offered to qualifying the certificates as records made in the regular course of business. The certificates were used solely as evidence of proper operating conditions or as a prerequisite to the admissibility of the radar reading, and the defendant made no effort to prove the internal calibrating device or the tuning forks were inaccurate.
In State v. Readding, supra, the Superior Court exonerated the defendant, stating:
It is entirely possible for a particular RADAR device to function properly and record accurately a 50 m.p.h. but inaccurately at higher speeds......
Accuracy of the particular speedometer should be established by more than one test.

Division of Weights and Measures should inspect Tuning Forks and Measuring Devices.

The Municipal Judge’s Benchbook Speeding Monograph, in the section on RADAR covers the issue of "Who certifies Tuning Forks." The section reads: "The proper entity to certify tuning forks and RADAR equipment is the Division of Weights and Measures in the Department of Law and Public Safety." The section also states "N.J.S.A. 51: 1-84 requires that all weights and measures used in trade shall be tested and sealed at least once in a year."
This Division was initially set up by N.J.S.A. 51:1-42 to establish a uniform system of weights and measures in the state. N.J.S.A. 52:17B-24 sets forth that the Division of Weights and Measures shall be headed by the a superintendent, and N.J.S.A. 51:1-55 provides the State Superintendent shall be the custodian of all standards of weights and measures. A standard operating procedure for the N.J. State Police to have tuning forks tested annually by Weights and Measures to be certified as accurate. N.J. State Police S.O.P. - Radar Operation April 25, 1983, page 5.
In State v. Kalafat 134 N.J. Super. 297 ( App. Div. 1975), the court held that in a speeding case "the Superintendent of Weights and Measures has the duty of providing a standard measure and of certifying approved measures." Id. at 301, referring to a measured distance. The State Department of Weights and Measures routinely calibrates tuning forks for the State Police and many municipalities in Central New Jersey.
State v. Van Syoc 235 N.J. Super. 463, 465 (Law Div. 1988), aff'd o.b. 235 N.J. Super. 409 (App. Div. 1989). In VanSyoc, defendant, an attorney appearing pro se, failed to object to the introduction of K-55 radar unit evidence of excessive speed until the trial had been concluded, and he then argued that the charge against him should be dismissed because the State had failed to demonstrate that the K-55 unit was being operated in the manual mode, as required. VanSyoc supra, 235 N.J. Super. at 465.
Upon de novo review, Judge Steinberg found that defendant, an experienced trial attorney, failed to object to the introduction of the radar evidence because he perceived a tactical advantage in withholding his objection. Ibid. The judge then held that defendant had waived his right to object, noting that if an objection had been interposed in a timely fashion, the State would have been in a position to supply the missing evidence. Id. at 466. In sustaining the conviction, the judge observed that "[t]rial errors which are induced, encouraged or acquiesced in, or consented to by defense counsel ordinarily are not a basis for a reversal on appeal." Id. at 465.

The 'Pace' or 'Clock' Method

A "pace" or "clock" is performed by an officer in a patrol car with a calibrated speedometer for a duration of distance or time wherein the officer accelerated to a speed equivalent to the suspect's, and then keeps a steady distance behind the suspect's vehicle following that vehicle. It is essential that the patrol car's speedometer be calibrated and that the certificates of calibration both before and after, be admitted into evidence.
An officer may also sometimes admit he was unable to get a good "clock" but may say that his vehicle was going 70 mph, for example, and he was still losing ground to the offender. The obvious shortcoming to "clocking" as vehicle is that the officer's objective judgment may be brought into question, the interference by other traffic, or other non-reasonable factors. It is for these reasons that the "clock" method is used less frequently than radar and laser speed detection.

Laser Speed Detection
The landmark case on Laser speeding tickets is In the Matter of the Admissibility of Motor Vehicle Speed Readings Produced by the LTI Marksman 20-20 Laser Speed Detection System 314 N.J. Super. 233, 714 A.2d 381; (Law Div. 1998) aff’d 326 N.J. Super. 110. (App. Div 1999)

Reginald Stanton, Assignment Judge wrote: …the general concept of using lasers to calculate the speed of motor vehicles is generally accepted within the relevant scientific community and is valid. Despite the fact that the testing conducted was far from perfect, it was adequate, and I am satisfied from the totality of the evidence presented to me that the laser speed detector produces reasonably uniform and reasonably measurements of the speed of motor vehicles under conditions likely to be present on New Jersey highways when the detector is used for law enforcement purposes. The error trapping programs and mechanisms built into the detector are fully adequate to prevent unreliable speed measurements when used for law enforcement purposes. Accordingly, under the broad teaching of cases such as Romano V. Kimmelman, 96 N.J. 66, 474 A.2d 1 (1984), and State v. Wojtkowiak, 170 N.J. Super. 44, 405 A.2d 477 (Law Div. 1979), reversed on other grounds, 174 N.J. Super. 460, 416 A.2d 975 (App. Div. 1980), speed readings produced by the laser speed detector should be received as evidence of the speed of motor vehicles without the need for expert testimony in individual prosecutions arising under the motor vehicle laws.

The Law Division held admissibility of such readings shall be subject to the rules set forth below:

1. Expert testimony in support of admissibility shall not be required, except as specifically set forth below.

2. Appropriate training of the law enforcement officer operating the laser speed detector shall be shown in each case.

3. Pre-operational checking procedures recommended by the manufacturer of the laser speed detector shall be shown to have been made in each case.

4. Speed measurements shall be admitted whether made in daylight or at night and within any temperature range likely to be found in New Jersey, even if made under conditions of light or moderately heavy rainfall, but speed measurements taken during heavy rain or while snow is falling shall not be admitted without the support of adequate expert testimony in the individual case.

5. Speed measurements made at any distance up to 1,000 feet shall be admitted, but measurements made at any distance in excess of 1,000 feet shall be admitted only with the support of adequate expert testimony in the individual case.

This case was affirmed State v. Abeskaron (In re Admissibility Hearing of the LTI Marksman 20-20 Laser Speed Detection Sys.), 326 N.J. Super. 110. November 24, 1999

Conclusion

It is no defense to argue unlawful arrest, selective enforcement, custom and usage, non-ownership of car driven, ignorance or mistake of law, lack of precise speed proved, defective speedometer or cruise control. Obey the law, follow speed limits and you will have no need to know about Radar.

Good Cops Great Cops-122nd Cadet Class - Episode 1 and A review of the police employment steps

In this episode, day one is off to a rough start for the new recruits of the Austin Police Department. Channel 6 followed the instructors and two of the cadets through the eight month cadet training. This episode is part one of an eight part series documenting what it takes to gain the knowledge, strength, and skills to become one of Austin's finest.
 A review of the police employment steps

By: Leopoldo Magnotta


In order to become a police officer, it requires a pretty exceptional individual.. It really is very demanding. And it's not straightforward.

So in the hiring process, agencies subject applicants through a number of requirements in order to make sure those agencies employ a person who is expected to do a exceptional job, and keep the agency out of trouble.

What is involved in this process?

The written application initiates the hiring process. A single job opening could result in many of applications. The department has to screen these applications seeing as it simply can't interview all applicants. A candidate is likely to be immediately rejected if they have any major prior acts like a suspended drivers license or previous serious criminal conviction. Though each agency does examine things a bit in a different way. Additionally, the agency might look at things like education, consistency in prior employment, and additional elements.

A written test has to be passed by the applicant. Frequently it is not just sufficient to pass, but to score high considering the significant quantity of people applying. These examinations focus on competencies like arithmetic, reading skills, grammar, and spelling. A written essay is typically expected.

The physical agility exam is also pretty significant. Candidates must be in good enough physical condition to carry out the position of a law enforcement officer. These exams include a number of obstacles designed to duplicate what an law enforcement officer could confront on patrol.

The most important part of the hiring process is almost certainly the oral board. Tough questions will are likely to be inquired of the candidate by a few members within the agency. Top applicants are invited to go further in the hiring process after a ranking based upon results of the oral interview.

Each detail of the applicant's life is looked into in the course of the background check. Family, friends, co-workers, and supervisors are met with. Criminal reports are checked, as are financial records like a credit report. A confession of any prior problem is absolutely expected from the applicant. Any deceitfulness is expected to lead to immediate disqualification.

If a candidate makes it through the above, they'll usually have one more job interview with the head of the agency (Chief, Sheriff, etc.) or another top ranking member within the command staff. This meeting can help conclude if the applicant will represent the agency well, and if they are the best individual for the position.

A conditional job offer is often presented at this point. This allows the agency to subject the candidate to a pre employment medical examination and psych examination. The hiring process is normally concluded following these final steps.

At the time a job vacancy permits, a proper employment offer is likely to come to a applicant who has made it through all of the previous steps.

Is it over then? Obviously not. Several months of taxing work is in the future for the applicant at the police academy.

After graduation, it is time for the Field Training program where the new cop works with several veteran training officers. A decent number of new police officers do not pass this part, so it's not to be treated without respect.

The process is essentially finished once the cop finishes a probation period of 12 to 18 months, and has successfully finished the FTO program.

They're a law enforcement professional, and will enjoy the benefits, and need to deal with the duties, that come with the position.

Tactical Workouts   Revolutionary Tactical Strength And Conditioning Program Provides A Simple Training Blueprint To Help Cops, Soldiers, And Prepared Citizens Gain Tactical Muscle



A review of the Times Square bomb scare (from 2010)

The latest failed, publicized terror attack happened in New York’s famous Times Square. The attempt happened during the busy dinner period and could potentially have done lots of damage and killed lots of people.  Luckily the amateur bomb did not detonate and was reported to the police by an alert sidewalk vendor. 
The suspected bomber or attempted bomber is 30 year old Faisal Shahzad who is a U.S. citizen born in Pakistan. It is easy to look back now, but this could almost turn into an episode of ‘Dumb Criminals’. Shahzad was arrested at JFK international airport as he was attempting to board a flight to Dubai. Several reports say that he had actually made it on the plane and I am sure that he thought that he was home free.

Some reports say that Shahzad was tracked down through emails that were sent in arrainging the purchase of the vehicle used in the attempted bombing.  More recent he was tracked down through the use of a disposable phone that he purchased to communicate with the sellers of the vehicle.  Most crime shows on TV will lead you to believe that these phones  can not be traced obviously that is not true.

Another dumb mistake that he made was to leave his house key in the car that he attempted to blow up. I’m sure that he was in a hurry to get out of there and was probably a bit nervous, but that was not a very smart move.  The night of the attempted bombing, he had to call his landlord, Stanislaw Chomiak  to let him in. He lived alone and told the landlord that he had taken a cab from a train station.  It’s going to be pretty hard in court to explain why his keys were in that car.

The link between Depression and Suicide

Suicide was the ninth leading cause of death in Florida and tenth in the U.S. About 30 percent of those who committed suicide displayed symptoms of depression at least three months before death.

A new study presented at the 28th European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP) Congress in Amsterdam discovered behavior patterns such as risky behavior, agitation and impulsivity to be significant indicators of 50 percent of suicide attempts.
The study analyzed 2,811 individuals with depression who were a part of an international study of depression and suicide. Several parameters were studied that included previous suicide attempts, family history, current and previous treatments and the patient's clinical presentations. Psychiatric symptoms and clinical risk factors for bipolar disorder were also assessed. Of the participants, 628 had already attempted suicide.
"The strength of this study is that it's not a clinical trial, with ideal patients - it's a big study, from the real world," said study author Dr. Dina Popovic, a psychiatrist at Barcelona Hospital Clinic and the Clinical Research Institute of Biomedical Research in Spain.
The researchers found "depressive mixed states" often preceded suicide attempts and was quite relative to bipolarity.
"A 'depressive mixed state' is where a patient is depressed, but also has symptoms of 'excitation,' or mania. We found this significantly more in patients who had previously attempted suicide, than those who had not. In fact, 40 percent of all the depressed patients who attempted suicide had a 'mixed episode' rather than just depression."
Dr. Popovic added, "In our opinion, assessing these symptoms in every depressed patient we see is extremely important, and has immense therapeutic implications. Most of these symptoms will not be spontaneously referred by the patient, the clinician needs to inquire directly, and many clinicians may not be aware of the importance of looking at these symptoms before deciding to treat depressed patients."
Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death for Americans, according to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Among American men, the suicide rate is about four times higher than among women.
Florida’s percentage of adults with suicidal thoughts was similar to the national percentage in 2012 to 2013. According to the National Survey of Drug Use and Health, in Florida, about 493Find Article,000 adults (3.4 percent of all adults) in 2009 through 2013 had serious thoughts of suicide within the year prior to being surveyed. The percentage did not change significantly over this period.
The Florida Depression Helpline is committed to providing you assistance and guidance if you or a loved one is currently battling depression or any other mental illness. Our representatives will help connect you with the best depression programs in Florida that will ensure your best shot at recovery. We will assist you every step of the way from admission at the best treatment centers for depression through the aftercare programs.

Free Field Training Featuring: The JOB of a COP in COURT and Court Reporters and Deposition Legal Services

Court Reporters and Deposition Legal Services

Although most people believe that court reporters spend all their time in a court room, the bulk of their professional activity is much more likely to take place in a conference room at a law firm.  That’s because deposition services, and not in-trial proceedings is the leading reason why court reporters are in such constant demand.


Although most people believe that court reporters spend all their time in a court room, the bulk of their professional activity is much more likely to take place in a conference room at a law firm.  That’s because deposition services, and not in-trial proceedings is the leading reason why court reporters are in such constant demand.
How a Court Reporter aids in a Deposition
·         By providing a written record of testimony.  Every deposition is valuable to the advance of that given court case, and since witnesses cannot be brought in again and again to repeat what they have said, the written record created by the court reporter must speak for them.
·         By preparing a record to be used in court.  If the witness being deposed is unable to appear in court, the transcript created by the court reporter will be used instead.  These documents are also use to corroborate testimony during a trial.  Say for example a witness is brought before the judge.  They make statements that differ from those given during the deposition.  Counsel is able to point out the discrepancies thanks to the written record.
·         To certify any document presented as evidence during a deposition.  Many court reporters are also notaries, meaning they can make any deposition-related documentation official in the eyes of the court.  This may include evidence, statements and even the transcript of the deposition itself.  (NOTE:  Ask you court reporting services beforehand if the court reporter they are sending out is currently a notary public.)

Other Deposition-Related Court Reporting Services

One of the fastest growing legal services is Videography, and it comes into play often with depositions.  More and more attorneys are choosing to videotape their depositions for the record, or use later in court.   Sensing a shift in demand, court reporting services have brought in expert video camera operators to shoot and edit these depositions.

Translation and interpreter services are also offered by many court reporting services and can provide benefits for those who need to depose individuals who may not speak English as their first language (or at all).  The same accuracy and speed is required of bi-lingual court reports as they must not only comprehend the second language being spoken, but create a transcript of it as well.

Millions of depositions take place in the United States each year, and for each one there is likely to be a court reporter present to create a flawless record of what is said.  It is just one of the myriad ways that a court reporter provides the backbone of the legal record.

Deadly Force Scenario Training for Civilians -Scenario 1 - by LEO Round Table


This video, the first in a series, was produced by LEO Round Table. It is basically a Shoot/Don't Shoot tutorial for civilians. Given today's politically charged climate for law enforcement officers, we wanted to take a proactive approach in helping to solve the problem...education. With videos popping up on social media and news outlets (i.e. Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Falcon Heights, Minnesota) involving police shootings, it's all too easy to rush to judgement and form an opinion with limited or incomplete information. Then, there will always be individuals who will take matters into their own hands such as what happened with the sniper who killed 5 Dallas police officers and the ambush killing of 3 officers in Baton Rouge. Even if you possess all of the facts, it can be daunting for the civilian to understand the law enforcement officer's Use of Force Continuum, Matrix or Rules of Engagement. We seek to address these concerns in the series of videos. Thank you to our sponsors and all of the volunteers who made this project a success: Producers - Chip DeBlock & Bret Bartlett Video Production - Cadet Media Actors: David D'Agresta and Dwight Buchanan Sponsors: Ex Umbra Defense Solutions, FOP Lodge #27, GUNLEARN.COM, Papa John's Pizza #4163 and Patrick's Uniforms

NYPD Community Partner Program





The NYPD Community Partner Program is an important step in the NYPD’s commitment to establish trust between police and the communities they serve. Many newly assigned police officers have little understanding of residents and business people in the area, or the problems of the area that the neighborhood relies on the Police Department to address. For the first time in over a decade, Police Academy graduates will work with a group of local Community Partners who will orient the new officers to the neighborhood, its leaders and the policing issues of greatest concern to residents and businesses in the area. This is an important first step in helping police officers recognize the importance of strong relationships with their community and the value of understanding community concerns regarding crime and quality of life conditions.
