The award is among the first major federal funding grants to go toward substance use disorder treatment and recovery legislation, with the aim of addressing the ongoing opioid epidemic. The funds, which will be dispersed over the next two years, will allow PCO to hire two full-time staff members, a Project Coordinator and an Operations Supervisor. Those positions will allow PCO to offer better resources to individuals who are in need of treatment in a more streamlined and effective fashion. In addition, the money will allow PCO to improve their Critical Incident Management System database, which tracks the number of overdoses in the region and allows for research and detailed analysis of the data collected to be studied by PCO’s treatment and healthcare partners. I applaud the grant recipients for their commitment to serve their communities in this way. The chiefs have partnered with the offices of District Attorney Timothy Cruz and Sheriff Joseph McDonald to take a multi-jurisdictional approach to dealing with the opioid epidemic.

Below – My TV debate with Cardiff Freemason Jim Bevan – – – – Freemasonry and Witchcraft initiation rites compared “The great strength of our Order lies in its concealment; let it never appear in any place in its own name, but always covered by another name, and another occupation. None is better than the three lower degrees of Free Masonry; the public is accustomed to it, expects little from it, and therefore takes little notice of it.
Next to this, the form of a learned or literary society is best suited to our purpose, and had Free Masonry not existed, this cover would have been employed; and it may be much more than a cover, it may be a powerful engine in our hands. By establishing reading societies, and subscription libraries, and taking these under our direction, and supplying them through our labours, we may turn the public mind which way we will.
Books , films and ex-Freemason exposees Without doubt the most useful and accurate information on the Freemasons comes from ex memers of ‘the craft’. A large percentage of Masons are kept in the dark on purpose so the real agenda can be carried out.

Since this situation has changed as the Met has attempted to save money due to cuts in funding. There is currently a period of transition which will result in the MPD being divided into 12 Basic Command Units made up of two or three boroughs. There is criticism of these changes. A few London borough councils maintain their own borough park constabularies, though their remit only extends to park by-laws , and although they are sworn as constables under laws applicable to parks, their powers are not equal to those of constables appointed under the Police Acts, meaning that they are not police officers.

Constable Litchfield ordered Mr Antram from the car and told him to stand by a nearby retaining wall, which he did. Constable Hicks then tackled Mr Antram, who was standing still, causing his head to collide with the wall, knocking him unconscious. The constable later claimed Mr Antram had charged at him.

He described a night at the Cooma Hotel in August last year where he was invited to celebrate a mate’s engagement. There were other police who were looking at Mr Antram, one commenting “this is the guy who’s taking us to court”.

Candace wired him the small sum without hesitation — but when he contacted her a few weeks later saying he needed a much bigger sum to pay legal bills, she realized she was being scammed.

Why Cops Get Away With Rape
History of criminal justice Ancient policing Law enforcement in ancient China was carried out by “prefects” for thousands of years since it developed in both the Chu and Jin kingdoms of the Spring and Autumn period. In Jin, dozens of prefects were spread across the state, each having limited authority and employment period. They were appointed by local magistrates, who reported to higher authorities such as governors, who in turn were appointed by the emperor, and they oversaw the civil administration of their “prefecture”, or jurisdiction.
Under each prefect were “subprefects” who helped collectively with law enforcement in the area. Some prefects were responsible for handling investigations, much like modern police detectives. Prefects could also be women.

At least 50 have taken jobs with other departments, most of them at the Jersey Shore. State law mandates that if an officer is trained in a municipality, and quits in less than two years and then joins another police force within days, the new municipality owes all or some of the cost of training the officer.
