In memory On January 11, 1969, Deputy Marshal David K Brown fell in the line of duty. Deputy Marshal Brown was checking on a suspicious vehicle behind the high school while investigating the theft of livestock. He had requested a records check on the subject over the radio and, when the dispatcher was unable to contact him with a reply, a second deputy was sent to check on him. When the second officer arrived, Deputy Marshal Brown was found shot to death in his patrol car. The suspect was subsequently apprehended and convicted of murder. He later died in prison, while serving a life sentence. Online Memorials for Deputy Marshal Brown are at http://bit.ly/1ZnmzzW and http://bit.ly/1VZHO5k Pictures attached are from the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.

Recently, we’ve been receiving calls about children playing on frozen ponds. Although we have recently experienced very cold temperatures, each pond is different and as temperatures increase, the thickness of the ice will become more unpredictable and less safe. Ice thickness can vary over even the smallest of areas and ice is particularly unsafe over moving water. As such, the Westfield Police Department and Westfield Fire Department recommend staying off frozen retention ponds and encourage residents to visit a commercial skating rink for ice skating, hockey, and other related activities. Rinks are always safer than frozen retention ponds. There are several skating rinks in Hamilton county that have public skating hours. If you see a person or animal fall through the ice, please call 911 immediately and do not attempt rescue yourself.

Attendees used practical application, such as role-playing exercises, to learn techniques and protocols, which follow the National Incident Management System also known as NIMS. Participants learned: How to develop structured response plans that can work for all hazards and incidents A detailed framework for special event planning Vulnerability and risk assessments Mitigation and resiliency strategies The Sports and Special Events Incident Management course was provided by the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) and the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security. TEEX is home to the National Emergency Response and Rescue Training Center (NERRTC). NERRTC offers preparedness courses to emergency responders, public works staff and medical personnel from around the country. “We are thrilled to bring this course to Grand Park in Westfield,” says associate training specialist Andrew Stowers of TEEX. “Grand Park can host thousands of visitors a day during its peak season, which makes this course essential for emergency personnel and for those directly involved in the day-to-day operations.” To build on this training, the Westfield Police Department will be hosting the scenario-based Enhanced Sports and Special Events Incident Management TEEX course at Grand Park in January 2018. During this course, participants will engage in three simulation supported emergency response exercises designed to improve individual and team management and decision-making skills related to large-scale emergency incidents. #####
