Special Response Team
May 4 – May 9, 2009
1. Bivens worked on getting maps of area schools to have for any emergency at the schools. These maps and diagrams will be used in Active Shooter Training. This class will be given to all patrol officers as they will be the first to respond to such an incident.
2. Bivens worked with Cid officers and patrol investigating the armed robbery of the Motel 6 and Sears.
3. Bivens worked security for District Court Thursday and Friday, May 6th and 7th, 2009.
4. Bivens and members worked on saturation Friday and Saturday nights for Dinan area.
5. Bivens got one Humm Vee running this week and the second is almost ready. Body work will be the next thing to work on then radioes and emergency lights.
Wants and Needs
a. Possibly a new cell phone with e-mail capability for Sgt. Bivens to receive messages with.
b. When the S.R.T. starts training we will need more ammunition for pistols, shotguns and rifles. We will also need to start training with less lethal munitions. This will require purchasing these munitions from ALS Technologies in Bull Shoals, Ar.
1. Meeting with the Street and Sanitation workers will be Monday May 11, 2009, at 8:00 a.m.to discuss how they can help in our efforts to fight crime. They are out all hours of the day and no-one pays any attention to their activities as they work in the streets. It is possible they have already seen some criminal activity and don't know who they can talk to.
2. Set up a tip line on answering machine as to be able to receive calls from informants that want to remain anonymous but have information that needs to be known so it can be acted on.
3. Start weekly training sessions with the Team members, starting as soon as possible. Start drug interdiction in our neighborhoods as soon as Team members are ready and have some training behind them.
