BOARD SPOTLIGHT: INSTANT REPLAY FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT?
By Eric Snyder, ISPA Past President

imageInstant replay is becoming commonplace in sports. With technological advancements, we can look back in time and watch a play over and over again, in high definition, immediately after it happens. It’s only natural that this technology, or the idea of it, will be transferred to other areas of our lives. How does this translate to law enforcement? Body cameras.


Body cameras are the quick fix for those who question the acts of law enforcement professionals. Put a camera on a cop, and you will know everything he or she said or did. Everything will be recorded and all questions answered.

RABINER ROUNDUP
News and views from RTC, home of the Jerry Rabiner Memorial Boys Ranch
By Brad L. Klug MSW, CEO of RTC

image Hello to all my brothers and sisters in law enforcement! I hope that you and your families all are safe and healthy! Here are a few Rabiner Treatment Center (RTC) updates for you:

As usual, the boys had a great experience, learning about team-work, competition and sportsmanship.

As Lt. Cole grabbed a few rebounds and shot a few baskets, he noticed that the basketball was half flat and scuffed from thousands of shots taken at the park. He left the park, went to a local sporting goods store, purchased a new basketball and returned to Chautauqua Park to give the new ball to Deng.
