I was extremely humbled today to receive a 2018 Community Policing Award from United States Attorney John Durham in recognition of Clinton’s community policing initiatives. The truth is that I could only accept this award on behalf of all the men and women of the Clinton Police Department. For it is their commitment, passion and daily interactions with our citizens that make these programs work and strengthen our ties to the community. Well done all! Here’s to many more successes together.

***********EMERGENCY ALERT TEST TODAY************* National Test of the Emergency Alert System and Wireless Emergency Alerts The Federal Emergency Management Agency, in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will conduct a nationwide Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) and the Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA). The test will assess the operational readiness of the infrastructure for distribution of a national message and determine whether technological improvements are needed. The test will be conducted in two parts and will take place on Wednesday, October 3, 2018, with the WEA portion starting at 2:18 p.m. ET, followed by the EAS portion at 2:20 p.m. EDT. The WEA test message will be sent to cell phones that are connected to wireless providers participating in WEA. This is the fourth EAS nationwide test and the first national WEA test. Previous EAS national tests were conducted in November 2011, September 2016, and September 2017 in collaboration with the FCC, broadcasters, and emergency management officials. Following the test you will receive an email asking for your input to an internal DHS survey. The results will assist FEMA’s IPAWS program in determining the effectiveness of the test. More information and updates about the test can be accessed on this FEMA website.
