Cooperation among police agencies leads to more crime solving

Cooperation among police agencies leads to more crime solving

Wednesday – 1/25/2012, 4:25am  ET

Michelle Basch, wtop.com

WASHINGTON – Bad guys often commit crimes in one city or county and then flee to another.

To solve these crimes, local police departments talk to one another and share information, a process that appears to be improving in the region.

“Communication between Montgomery County and D.C. is the best I’ve seen it in all my years of working here,” says Takoma Park Police Chief Ronald Ricucci.

He also keeps in close touch with Prince George’s County Police, he says.

Ricucci has been in law enforcement for more than 40 years, including many years with the Montgomery County Police Department. He says officers from these different jurisdictions talk on the phone or through email.

“We’re talking off hours, all times of day,” he says.

The improved communication is paying off.

“We’re working better together. We’re making more arrests,” Ricucci says.

On Friday, for example, someone tried to steal a car in Takoma Park. A combined effort by two police departments helped recover the vehicle.

“D.C. spotted the car (and) took it to the line. P.G. spotted the car. We didn’t catch it, but all three were talking, and within an hour the car was recovered as a result of the communication,” Ricucci says.

PG Municipalities Sharing Resources

Article from The Gazette – January 17, 2012

Police departments in central Prince George’s consider agreement to share resources
Officers would have arrest power outside jurisdiction, encourages backing up neighboring forces
by Natalie McGill, Staff Writer

Don’t be surprised to see a District Heights city police officer making an arrest in Capitol Heights and vice versa if enough municipal police departments sign an agreement to share their resources.

Hoping to fight crime in central Prince George’s through information-sharing, the town of Capitol Heights is looking for other municipal police departments to sign off on an agreement within the next month giving officers the authority to make arrests in neighboring jurisdictions, back up officers on service calls and spread themselves around on county enforcement missions.

A similar agreement was formed in 2009 but is back for review since municipal administrations and police leadership may have changed since then, Ayers said.

Cities asked to participate include District Heights, Fairmount Heights, Glenarden and Seat Pleasant, said Capitol Heights Police Deputy Chief Anthony Ayers Sr. An agreement would eliminate concern that a defense attorney could discredit an arrest because an officer was outside his or her boundary, Ayers said.

Attorneys representing the municipalities will need time to review the agreement before the respective city and town councils make a decision on whether to be a part of it, Ayers said.

Glenarden Police Chief Phil O’Donnell said he has been contacted by Capitol Heights Police Chief Gary Blakes Jr. about the agreement, but as of Monday had not seen a revised version and the city attorney Suellen Ferguson would need to review it before any decision is made.

O’Donnell said his first priority is Glenarden and that crime is under control there so he has to be careful how he uses his resources. There are 11 full-time officers including O’Donnell who provide 24-7 coverage.

“It’s not going to happen quick,” O’Donnell said of the process. “I know he’s new and he’s trying to get things going, we’ll help him anyway we can, but as far as the [agreement] goes, we have to see what it is first.”

Ayers said having the partnership will help with visits from the Joint Agency Group, a combination of representatives from agencies such as Prince George’s County police and the county’s Department of Social Services that visit areas residents identify as problem spots for crime and poor property upkeep.

Ayers said with an agreement, JAG could include officers from different municipal departments to go out on one JAG visit that hits problem spots in central Prince George’s instead of spending overtime money to use three to four officers from one department on a JAG visit.

The agreement would encourage more joint enforcement missions to patrol areas marked for drug activity, loitering and breaking and enterings. Ayers said having officers from each department on these missions is safer than one officer trying to stop and question multiple individuals.

“It’s very important you go out there and gather information and [with] these small police departments because we don’t have the manpower we can’t close these cases out,” Ayers said. “This is the way police is supposed to be. There’s going to be a lot of changes.”

District Heights Police Chief Michael March said that the agreement was underused in the past, but now that cities are revisiting it there still needs to be a discussion among the District Heights City Commission about what happens if his department gets calls at the same time.

District Heights has coverage 24-7 with 11 full-time officers.

“Their concern could be that our officers should be looking out for our own citizens and that should be priority,” March said of the commission.

As homicides fall in D.C., rise in Prince George’s, numbers meet in the middle

By Allison Klein and Matt Zapotosky

The District and Prince George’s County had nearly the same number of homicides in 2011, a major departure from a high 20 years ago, when the city saw 325 more slayings than the county.

It is a shift that reflects a double-digit drop in killings in the District from 2010 to 2011, with an especially noticeable downward trend in the most stubborn crime zones east of the Anacostia River. Just across the border, though, the homicide count in the neighboring communities in Prince George’s is surging, and the county as a whole saw a slight increase last year.

There were 97 slayings in Prince George’s in 2011, four more killings than in 2010. In the District, the year saw 109 homicides, down from 132 in 2010 and the lowest homicide total in the city since 1963.

“We share many of the same issues,” said D.C. Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier. “Quite a few of our victims come from Prince George’s County.”

The police department’s 7th District east of the Anacostia River — neighborhoods including Barry Farm and Congress Heights — saw its annual homicide count drop 55 percent, with 24 fewer killings in 2011. Neighborhoods across the border in Prince George’s 4th District — including Hillcrest Heights and Oxon Hill-Glassmanor — saw their count more than double, up by 21 slayings.

Law enforcement officials said the trend along Prince George’s border reflects problems that migrated with those who left the District for inside-the-Beltway county neighborhoods, including issues connected with poverty and long-simmering neighborhood disputes.

Some D.C. residents who still see frequent violence in their neighborhoods are weary, and say there’s not much to celebrate in the city’s declining homicide numbers.

“I’m slow to get to excited,” said the Rev. Donald Isaac, executive director of the East of the River Clergy, Police, Community Partnership. “As soon as you begin to celebrate, it can reverse so quickly.”

Prince George’s Police Chief Mark Magaw said crime has long run “back and forth” between the District and Prince George’s, and he has pushed this year for increased cooperation between the two police departments.

“It’s one big community now,” he said. “No longer do we have the luxury of saying, ‘We only have to worry up to Southern Avenue,’ ” one of the borders between the city and county.

Though killings in both the District and Prince George’s averaged about two per week during 2011, overall violent crime in the city fell by 10 percent and in the county by 12 percent.

But the city had a 6 percent jump in property crime, largely due to a growing problem with thieves grabbing smartphones, computer tablets and other electronic devices from people and cars. “Snatching electronics is the battle of the century,” Lanier said. “It’s the single biggest problem I have in term of numbers.”

Aiming for fewer than 100

Mayor Vincent C. Gray (D) said that the decline in homicides in the District is encouraging and that the city should work to try to get to fewer than 100 slayings in 2012.

“When people see crime going down like this, especially homicides, they are going to feel safer,” Gray said. “My sense is that people do feel safer. On the other hand, when you still see north of 100 homicides in the city, even though it’s a stark reduction, people are going to continue to be concerned about it. Some additional vigilance is going to serve you well, too.”

Killings in the District have fallen rapidly in recent years, with 2011 bringing the lowest number of slayings in nearly 50 years.

“When I started here in 1990, the two things that used to really bother me was that we were known as the murder capital of the world and the city of unsolved homicides,” Lanier said. “Our detectives and our police officers have done an amazing job turning that around. We are no longer either one of those things.”

Homicides in Prince George’s have been generally trending downward as well, though at a slower pace.

The rest of the region’s suburbs have far fewer homicides than the District and Prince George’s, with most counties recording 2011 homicide numbers roughly unchanged from the prior year. Fairfax County was an exception, with a decrease from 16 to 8.

Though Montgomery County had just 16 homicides in 2011, in March it saw one of the year’s highest-profile murders in the region when Brittany Norwood, an employee at a Bethesda Lululemon yoga store, fatally bludgeoned and stabbed a co-worker, Jayna Murray.

And in the wealthier neighborhoods of Northwest Washington, where homicides are rare, three killings drew wide attention: a teen was shot on a busy street in Georgetown on Halloween night; socialite Viola Drath was killed in her Georgetown rowhouse in August, allegedly by her husband; and in November, a man was gunned down outside a nightclub in Dupont Circle.

The Northeast quadrant of the city, covered by the 4th and 5th districts, ended the year with a combined eight more killings than in 2010.

Area crime watchers say they’ve seen violence steadily shift from the District into Prince George’s.

The migration of many of the District’s poorer residents to inside-the-Beltway communities in Prince George’s has been happening for years, fueled by the District tearing down some public housing, said former D.C. police chief Isaac Fulwood Jr., who led the department in the early 1990s, when the city had nearly 500 homicides a year.

That shift has had lasting effects, he said.

“People from D.C. that had to move tended to move to Prince George’s County, and they took with them the things that poverty brings: Lack of access to everything,” said Fulwood, who is now chairman of the U.S. Parole Commission.

The Prince George’s police department, which has more than 2,000 fewer officers than in the District, was left to deal with neighborhood disputes that people brought with them, as well as new beefs created in the large apartment complexes in Prince George’s.

“Alabama Avenue, Stanton Road subsidized housing, all of that is gone,” Prince George’s Deputy Chief Craig Howard said. “Now when you ride through those areas, there are townhouses, single-family homes.”

Last year’s killings in Prince George’s did not seem to follow any common thread, officials said. Young men and women sometimes killed one another in petty disputes.

The majority of the killings in Prince George’s happen inside the Beltway, a more urban setting than the rest of the county. Because Prince George’s has a larger overall population than the District, its homicide rate was lower than the city’s, with about 11 killings per 100,000 residents, compared with about 17 per 100,000 residents in the District.

Across the nation during the first half of last year, the homicide count increased by about 1 percent for cities the size of the District, and remained the same for counties such as Prince George’s, according to FBI crime statistics.

Lanier, who hoped to have fewer than 100 homicides in the District in 2011, said she remains frustrated by the numbers. “We’re not where we need to be until we have less than 50,” she said.

The Washington Post’s homicide count includes criminal killings within the borders of the city or the county, but does not include killings that officials have ruled justified. Prince George’s homicide numbers last year included one killing investigated by Laurel police and one on the Bowie State University campus.

Lanier said the District had fewer gang-related homicides than in prior years. Most killings happened amid personal disputes, often stemming from squabbles at nightclubs where people had been drinking, she said.

She added that her department’s homicide closure rate is about 94 percent, which sends a message to criminals.

“Word travels pretty quickly when a homicide happens and an arrest is made,” Lanier said. “Your risk of being caught is pretty high if you commit a homicide in D.C.”

Prince George’s police’s homicide closure rate was 63 percent last year, a slight increase over 2010.

In Prince George’s, 16 people were killed in January, including a teenager who used to cook eggs for his 3-year-old brother, an ice cream truck driver and a University of Maryland student who tutored athletes. But by year’s end, overall crime had dropped compared with 2010, with violent crime down about 12 percent and property crime down about 10 percent.

Lanier’s biggest success was in the 7th District, which has regularly led the city in killings and some other crimes. In 1993, the 7th District alone had 133 homicides. Last year it had 20.

“A lot of it is the officers being out there, being visible,” 7th District Commander Joel Maupin said. He said officers continue to take guns off the streets, and often blanket neighborhoods with extra patrols when they get a tip that violence might be coming.

It is essential, he said, to make arrests in crimes such as robberies and burglaries because it prevents future violence.

“Removing these individuals from the streets and doing it quickly reduces crime,” Maupin said.

Isaac, the clergyman who works in the same neighborhoods as Maupin, said his group visits every family that loses someone to violence, offering burial support, grief counseling and other services. “Even if you have one homicide a month, it’s impacting out there,” Isaac said.

“It gives us a heads up and increases officer safety. Our guys are able to know what is going on around them from a D.C.perspective. We are able to see when a major crime occurs close to us so we know what to be on the lookout for,” he says.

Threat Mitigation

TransGlobal’s threat mitigation framework involves 4 phases: 1) Identifying threat source which can include terrorists, crimes, earthquakes, chemical or biological attacks; 2) a threat mitigation strategy involving threat mitigation components such as suspicious activity reporting (SAR), tactical exchange, vulnerability assessment, or the identification of persons of interest; 3) an early intervention strategy actualizing threat mitigation components such as the empowerment of police officers by conducting intelligence-led precision patrols versus blind patrols; and 4) threat management which is the emergency operation management and includes data fusion center capability based on interfaces with disparate data sources. TransGlobal’s solutions are able to provide threat mitigation solutions.

Interoperability

Since 9-11 a tremendous amount of teamwork has taken place between agencies resulting in the development of secure, enhanced super data highways and data exchange standards.  Agreements have been forged between LE agencies for the structure and sharing of data.  Seventy-two fusion centers have been created to enhance the multi-agency sharing and analysis of data, focusing heavily on homeland security.  Participating agency members are working in close proximity viewing their own systems.  The closeness has created a trust between agency members; however, are they truly on the same page?  TransGlobal’s SAMS solution has the ability to provide the entire Nation with a common operating platform (COP) Bridging Gaps in Communication.

TransGlobal Business Systems, Inc, a local provider of situational awareness technologies, have partnered up with several Guardian One companies,  Prince Georges County and Prince George’s Economic Development Corporation to showcase the advances in technologies since the tragic events of September 11th, 2001.   Collectively, the Guardian One companies are strongly advocating “public and private” collaboration as a means of readiness and preparedness for all potential threats to our communities. These solutions incorporate the disciplines of: public safety and homeland security organizations information sharing systems; CAD integration for cross-area situational awareness and interoperability; and the capability of visualizing, traditionally, isolated hot spots of intelligence.  These technologies position the various public safety and law enforcement stakeholders to become more proactive and informed, rather than reactivate and blind. This type of collaborations advances the interest of public safety in general and incentivizes citizen to become involved in their own security. More recently, this was demonstrated when citizens from Prince George’s County became involved in working with both the Prince George’s County Emergency Response (Prince Georges County Award) and the Metropolitan Police Department, to enable  transparency and awareness related to incidents and potential threats that could occur across  their respective jurisdictional boundaries. During the course of these activities, the MPD’s situational awareness solution was activated in advance of Hurricane Irene to support its response to all potential threats within Washington D.C. The Transglobal Solution also addresses the importance of “hands free” operation, not requiring operator input.  The data is automatically shared to the interested jurisdictions.  It does not require manual input and is not subject to human error.

Project Management Consulting

There are eight (8) practices that are integral to TransGlobal’s project management methodology.  As a matter of standard operating procedures, TransGlobal uses these practices throughout a project’s lifecycle to ensure that the project can be implemented.  It is important to note that the implementation methodology and supporting project management practices are both flexible and scalable so that they can be adapted to the specific requirements of the customer.

  • Scope of Work
  • Schedule and Time
  • Cost
  • Quality
  • Risk
  • Contracts and Procurement Management
  • Resource
  • Communications

We also include several other functional areas under the Project Management Office umbrella as listed below.


Contracts and Procurement Management

Contracts and Procurement Management includes the processes required to acquire goods and services from vendors and subcontractors and consists of procurement planning, solicitation, source selection, contract administration and contract closeout.TransGlobal has extensive experience in managing programs with many large subcontracted efforts and we routinely uses subcontractors as integral members of our system integration teams. Also, we have established policies and procedures to manage these responsibilities.


Business Process Reengineering

Business process reengineering involves streamlining business processes and the development, implementation, and support of improved processes. It also includes eradicating redundancies while increasing productivity and decreasing the cost.

We focus heavily on resource management and cost management when evaluating business processes. Resource management includes the processes and skills required to make the most effective use of the people involved with the project and consists of organizational planning, staff acquisition, and team development. The success of any project depends upon obtaining and applying the best resources to every aspect of the project. This philosophy pervades our selection of partners, suppliers, facilities, tools and staff.


Documentation and Technical Writing

Communications management is essential throughout the life cycle of a project. Documentation and technical writing is the processes required to facilitate proper collection and dissemination of project information and consists of communication planning, information distribution, progress reporting, record retention and administration.

Strategic Planning

In order to ensure the best processes are put in place, each organization needs to identify goals both short-term and long-term. The organization needs to have a clear understanding of where they currently are, where they want to be, and the steps that will get them there. We believe key strategic planning steps include developing long-range IT plans, IT-enabled business plans, IT investments that increase program effectiveness as well as assisting with organization-wide IT consistency in regards to plans and initiatives.


Quality Management & Assurance

Quality management includes the processes to ensure that the project will satisfy the needs for which it is undertaken and consists of quality planning, control, and assurance.
