    WELCOME AND INTRODUCTIONS of PBWAB DIRECTORS Sylvia welcomed everyone. Each officer and director introduced themselves and listed which precinct they represented. 

     

    BLACK MOUNTAIN PRECINCT Commander Morin gave updates on the Black Mountain Precinct. The partnership between the Phoenix Police Department and the community is excellent. During the Community and Police Trust Initiative meeting, the majority of the comments were of support. There has been a recent citywide uptick in violent crimes. Property crimes are holding steady. Phoenix has been that the cutting edge of training. Commander Morin introduced the community action squad and informed everyone that Coffee with a Cop was the next day at 7th Street and Union Hills Drive at 8am.

     

    CARING COMMUNITY AWARDS The Green Trails Guardians, East Black Mountain Partnership, and Village Meadows Block Watch were awarded Caring Community Awards.

     

    ACTIVE SHOOTER “ARE YOU READY?” Det. Sara Gasper & Officer Jason Glenn -  Detective Gasper spoke about her work with Terrorism Liaison Officers and how they go to block watches to talk about reporting suspicious behavior. The community is the eyes and ears for law enforcement. Crime doesn’t stop at the border. Crime crosses over. Officer Jason Glenn works for the City of Scottsdale and at the ACTIC center part-time. There is a fusion center in every state where there is excellent sharing of information and intelligence. Officer Glenn discussed active shooter situations and actions to take when confronted with an active shooter situation. Three minutes, fifty-four seconds is the average amount of time it will take officers to respond to an active shooter situation.
