Update: Regional Law Enforcement Training

On October 17, 2005, Whitecaps posted Why Not a Regional Criminal Justice Center?. It suggested the creation of a regional (eastern Washington - northern Idaho) criminal justice center for a regional justice campus incorporating elements of incarceration, corrections, and law enforcement training.

Then in my February 8, 2006, post titled Regionalizing Public Safety Functions, I elaborated on why such a regional partnership would be beneficial.

Whitecaps' March 15, 2006, post titled That Would Never Work...Would It? provided the federal model for a coordinated multi-agency, inter-jurisdictional training program.

Now, September 25, 2007, in today's Coeur d'Alene Press we learn from Maureen Dolan's story headlined Officer training may come to North Idaho that "Support for regional police training academy (is) gaining momentum."

Idaho's law enforcement (especially in the northern counties) has lots of room for improvement, and a training facility in Coeur d'Alene would be a good start.

CDA Police Taser Policy: Ask, Tell, Tase. A whole lot of thought put in to that procedure.

Without U.S. Marshals, you'll have corruption. I'm certainly a victim of it. Spent my whole life with a perfect record and working with law enforcement. I've even helped Boise with their pc's and keeping local government clean from viruses and such. Now after 50 years on this earth, my family and I are under attack as criminals. There is no defense against a judge and local law enforcement when they're being used as a weapon to shut us up. It's unfortunate when people aren't given an equal chance here. 'Local control' is not a phrase I'm fond of. This northern area has severe corruption issues. What a shame. Deception is coveted, honesty is punished and good people are forced out!
