NATIONAL AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH

NATIONAL AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH

June 20, 2007

The National Sheriff’s Association has selected the Orange County Sheriff’s Department to receive the 2007 Award for Excellence in Neighborhood Watch.

The ten cities in South Orange County patrolled by the Orange County Sheriff’s Department have a population of 525,017 stretching across 110 square miles. There are 1500 Neighborhood Watch Groups with approximately 30,000 residents taking part. “It is no coincidence that the South Orange County communities served by the Sheriff’s nationally recognized award winning Neighborhood Watch program also have the State’s lowest Part 1 crime rates when compared against all California cities with a population over 100,000,” said Assistant Sheriff Jack Anderson who oversees the Sheriff’s patrol operations. Part 1 offenses include criminal homicide, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson.

The Sheriff’s South Operations Crime Prevention Unit has developed a Disaster Preparedness Academy for Neighborhood Watch members, empowering them with the necessary tools to provide a safe environment where they live. Residents have also been instructed about how to pull the plug on drug dealers by utilizing the Nuisance Abatement Law. The Sheriff’s Crime Prevention Unit was the first to test this law in court and they were successful.

Unfortunately a comparison between the 1Q2006 and 1Q2007 Crime and Vandalism reports do not support the Mezger/Varo’s CZ board assertion that pubic safety in Coto de Caza has gotten better over the last four years. In fact, the Varo/Mezger boards have been consistently unsympathetic to any public awareness campaign, as evidenced by their refusal to allow CHP management to address the issue during open board meetings – but turned over a complete board meeting to trashy TV producers.

"Kill The Idea Of Cops"

July 17th 2007 CNN stated this in one of their articles, "WASHINGTON (CNN) -- So let's cut to the chase on the new National Intelligence Estimate: Does it show America is safer today than it was on September 10, 2001 -- or not?".......................... "While nobody knows with absolute certainty whether al Qaeda is "stronger" than it was in the past, the point is that this new report shows the terror organization is "strong" yet again."
After .............. we get more bodybags .............soon to come.........mark my words here folks......... in large people areas like Shopping Center mega-malls, large health center.......hospitals like "Albany Med" of New York, maybe, yes, just maybe, someone in high places, in politics, or in the media, will take note what I am saying here............. over thirty five years of experience, research, obserance, and education in the public safety and security profession, I personally have come to a positive conclusion ........... yes.......... with absolute certainty........ that even if al Qaeda isn't stronger than it was in the past, getting through our first line of defense is easy!
Security in places like Shopping malls, Hospitals, City sky-scrapping Corporate office buildings, Colleges/Universities, and any other large complex, are told to call the police if there is a problem. Security is, in general, today, a "Hands-off-department in most complexes and that is very sad. Being that the case, we all know that the police are at a scene usually after-the-fact...........they write their reports out and the crime is history.......... the before factor must be present to prevent anything............ so if a none-terrorist crime is not possible to prevent, how is a terrorist crime going to be possible? It's not!
So "Kill the idea of cops" means, everyone who depends on the police to prevent crime and terrorist attacks without the direct help from a professional security people who are able to "put hands on", seeing that security is at a scene, before, during and after a possible crime, are fools............you must kill that idea that your security should just call the police......... and everyone better make sure their security is truly preventing crime and are not just there as an insurance rate deduction, a common reason today for having a security guard in place.
Wake-up! Am I, and my small group of public safety and security professionals the only ones who see what's coming here in America folks?
If you work in a Shopping mall, Hospital, University, and any large complex............. ask your security if they are told to call the local police if they need to put "Hands-On" to prevent a crime from happening. If they are honest with you, they will tell you yes! Why is this important news? because it tells you that when the police get there, the crime will most likely be just a report, waiting to be filed in a police station, that will not be followed up unless it's "body-bags" of friends and families you may know.
The stock holders, and owners of these complexes depend on the police to prevent crime. This is why their security is looked at as just over head in their business, and not really nessesary for direct crime prevention and terrorist attacks prevention. Just keep in mind folks.............. prevention needs the before factor! And the police are very seldom at a scene before a crime happens!
So.............. everyone.............. "Kill The Idea Of Cops", for if you don't, preventing terrorist like al Qaeda, is not going to happen! We will be easy prey!
Security departments everywhere in America must stop operating like police departments by just being a re-active crime control agency............ coupled with just calling the police.......... all security and the police are doing is reacting to a crime! Who's trying to prevent crime? Anyone? The crimes we see at Universities and colleges resently should never happen, and wouldn't if security did their homework! If security would be a pro-active agency they would have caught that young man long before he commited the crime! You all know who I'm talking about, no need to bring it's details to the forefront anymore........ we all heard plenty of the frightening details of the students who suffered greatly.
So I wonder how many people will read my warnings here? How many bodybags will America see before they realize security is not fulfilling their role in crime prevention because people in the place of authority over security are not "Killing The Idea Of Cops"? How many politicians will ever take note of what I am saying? Do the police feel threaten in what I say?
For I will go on record right now, by saying, the police are the only ones who are doing their jobs superbly!
People of America need to understand there responsibilities and the importance of developing their security departments and agencies to prevent crime now! And the law makers need to make, and change laws when needed, to help security do their job........ prevent crime and terrorist attacks now, with the help of police, the circle needed bewteen security and police will be what we need to stop terrorist in their tracts!
What about the fact that right now, as you are reviewing my article, your security department or agency could be hiring a terrorist cell player in complexes throughout America.................. do you know how easy it is to get a security position in most States in America? Too easy! And shopping malls, hospitals and other complexes are therefore wide open for terrorist!
"So let's cut to the chase on the new National Intelligence Estimate: Does it show America is safer today than it was on September 10, 2001 -- or not?" CNN............ In my professional opinion, and the opinion of my independent research group, NO! We are not safer! And I would talk to anyone who'd like to disput that fact!
Please go to our main web-site ( www.irg-security.us ) and click on the picture of our new Book just on this subject, with over thirty five years of research, experience and investigation all in less than 200 pages to study, then pass this Book on to your local library, please! For all those who can't afford to purchase this important information.
So! How many body bags will it take for people do "Kill the idea of Cops"? And start developing their Security Agencies and Departments to prevent crime? Laws must be changed to help security prevent crime! Security needs classes to educate them to make arrest if they need to, in order to prevent crime! The "Cops" need to learn how to work with security to prevent crime! These two entities need to work together and you, and your families will see more crime prevention, and then, but only then, America will have a fighting chance to prevent terrorist attacks!
Friends! America at this PRESENT TIME, have a breach in security! The front lines being security, can not prevent crime! And you already know that the police can not prevent crime! Terrorist will attack! Yes! The authorities will Respond but, too late folks........ it wasn't prevented! Security needs to be able to prevent! Let's pray it's not your family!
I guess September 11th........... was not enough body bags for people to take note of this researcher's study since 1968?
More body bags are needed I guess before people take note of my warnings!
That's sad. When your family is hit by terrorist attack, I'm sorry, I'm trying to get the word out, America, Wake Up!!!!
