SAFETY BEGINS WITH YOU !

The Union is putting forth an effort to improve the officer safety climate in the department. Pressing for Tasers, Rifles, Vests and providing training is just a start. The institutional environment must change too. And this begins with you. Complaining about important items like cars, radios and other essential tools of the trade is not enough. The Union can only proceed with documented cases of equipment failure or the lack of equipment. The Union will address as many of these issues as possible. With that being said, an old nagging problem has reared it’s head again. The issue of our “Deadly Force” and “Non Deadly Force” policies being woefully inadequate and in some cases contrary to State Law. A letter has been drafted and sent to Chief Rinehart, requesting a policy revision and/or update. Most importantly, the reference of C.G.S. 53a-22(c ) in our “Deadly Force” policy be made complete and totally reflective of the State Law. Our policy presently reads : An Officer may use deadly force to effect the capture or prevent the escape of a felony suspect only if the officer reasonably believes that the suspect has committed an offense involving the use or threatened use of deadly force and has probable cause to believe that the suspect poses a significant threat of death or serious injury to the officer or others, alternative means of apprehension are impractical or unavailable, and the officer has given warning of intent to use deadly force. C.G.S. 53a-22(c ) is nearly identical to our policy, except in one significant way. C.G.S. 53a-22(c ) states that a warning of intent to use deadly force need only be given “when feasible” What is the intent of our policy? Must we give a warning? What happens if it is “not feasible” to give one? Are we in violation of policy? Can this be an issue in a civil trial? There are no easy answers. And this is merely one of a hundred safety/policy issues that need addressing. Safety is everyone’s concern. Policy however is a responsibility of the Police Administration. How soon they will react is uncertain. Many “safety issue” irons are in the fire. Clearly the solution process is slow. However, it is the process. And in order to make it work for us, we all must be a part. Please write down dates, times, occurrences and all applicable facts related to safety issues you encounter. Give those documents to an “E” board member. A Union Safety Committee has been created to catalog and address the safety issues that plague the department. If you are interested in participating in this committee, please see “E” Board member Jeff Kalolo for details.

THINK SAFETY, ACT SAFELY !
