Welcome to Cop Blog. This story inspired me to create this page. (https://www.facebook.com/545069802495112/posts/786823424986414/) I hope it can turn into something great. In my spare time, I try not to consume myself with too much police work related stories. Sometimes it’s hard when this nonsense is going on. Meet San Francisco Police Chief William Scott, who’s prohibited his officer’s from having suspects be seated on the ground. Scott calls it demeaning. Not for nothing Chief, but one, your city isn’t exactly Disney Land, and two, why do we keep praising these law breaking fools who are terrorizing our streets and society. This has gone too far. I thank you Chief for birthing Cop Blog. Stay Tuned for more about me, my life, my passion for real, true, fair, police work, as well as tips/tricks/gear that will help you do this one of a kind job - The greatest job on earth. #cops#bluelivesmatter#sheepdog#1asstorisk#lawman#warrior#guardian#policing#communitypolicing#police#policeofficer#thinblueline
Yes...even for YOU.
Let me break down a misconception. No matter what neighborhood you live in, what race you are or how much money you've earned-abusive policing has and will continue to hurt you.
It'll destroy your neighbors, friends, foes and even you.
But be careful, it's sneaky.
You may not personally suffer brutality at the hands of the police but those around you who do will be more violent and use retaliation to solve their problems. This often causes 'unaffected people' to mistrust their neighbors and be less cooperative with the police thereby making your neighborhood less safe. Oh -and those stereotypical ideas you hold about "criminals" and your insatiable need to call 911 on "sketchy " people to keep things safe only further perpetuates police violence and makes you less safe.
It's time to get informed about the issues and motivated to change them.
@suffolk_u Part of our mission is community engagement and service, here’s some more photos from Shop w/ a Cop! SUPD along w/other agencies had a great time engaging and shopping with community members. We’re not done though, we’re still collecting toys for Toys for Tots until tomorrow morning at 8am! #communitypolicing#shopwithacop#toysfortots
Wishing a speedy recovery to Ptl. Nick Robert who is undergoing knee surgery today. We joke with Nick that he is involved in everything at the PD but he really is. Not only is he a member of the motor cycle unit, a field training officer and range instructor to name a few, he is also running our “Shop with a Cop” event this year on December 22nd. Don’t stay out too long...place will fall apart!
Today the North Smithfield Police Department was presented with our 1st ever police barricades made possible by the North Smithfield High School wood shop class. Shop teacher Mr. Skinner along with students Nick St.George (freshman) and Thomas Thibault (sophomore) put their skills to work and presented the final product to Captain Riccitelli and NSPD members. Be sure to check out the article in the next valley breeze paper. Thank you North Smithfield High School!

Next time you are told that aggressive strategies like stopping and frisking "suspicious" people to prevent more serious crime is about keeping you safe, think again. In NYC, stop and frisk was ruled unconstitutional in 2013 because it was (finally) deemed to be racially discriminatory.
Did crime dramatically rose during this time period? NO. In fact, most crime levels declined.
Be aware - punitive policies like this one often selectively target certain groups of people and certain behaviors at certain times. Discriminatory applications of the law do NOT make us safer.
It hurts us all because when citizens can't trust the police to be fair and unbiased, they are less likely to follow the law, help police solve crimes or partner with their neighbors to address local crime.
Bad policing affects the decisions of those around us in real ways. So be sure you know what you are asking for and the type of enforcement practices you are receiving in your community because they could backfire.
When you learn better, you do better.
Do you think tactics where police proactively question citizens are effective in reducing crime?? Tell me your thoughts ⤵️⤵️⤵️

Rebel is very well known in the town of Walpole and really can’t go anywhere without being recognized. She has been very hard at work since she passed her Canine Good Citizen Test. Rebel is not your typical “service dog”. As a matter of a fact we have given her a new title “Community Resource Dog”. Rebel is serving the Walpole Community in many different ways. She started off as a bridge between the towns youth and the police department. She then quickly became more of a town ambassador. Rebel and Officer Hart can be seen walking the halls of a school, attending a meeting at town hall, sitting at the police station, attending a dinner at the senior center and supporting the home team at a football game all in one day! She has help foster reading in the elementary schools, deescalated high stress situations at the middle school and offered stress relief before exams at the high school. On a daily basis she welcomes kids to school, helps get kids to come to school, helps get kids to go to classes and participates in lesson plans. Rebel can be spotted at a meeting with the Norfolk County DA, hanging out at the Walpole Council on Aging, riding in a police cruiser, running in a road race and just walking around town.
What started off as an idea to help with the social emotional health of Walpole’s youth has blossomed into fostering a greater sense of community. It is amazing what one little dog can do! @walpolehighschool @rebel_officerhart #gofidog#goldenopportunitiesforindependence#community#communitypolicing#communityoutreach
On Monday this group of residents came to headquarters to meet some of our officers and just my say “thank you.” They were kind enough to bring mini donuts. Who doesn’t love mini donuts? Mini donuts are DELICIOUS!!! It’s residents and actions like this that remind us why we became police officers. We are fortunate to serve such an amazing community. #franklinpd#franklinpolice#FTPD#franklinstrong#comunity#communitypolicing
Local MP for #Stevenage – Stephen McPartland is backing Neighbourhood Watch in a bid to get more local residents signed up to the scheme. He joined Assistant Chief Constable Bill Jephson, Chief Superintendent Matt Nicholls and Safer Neighbourhood Sergeant Martin May for a walk about the town on Thursday. The group made a special visit to the Oval to chat to local residents and business owners. #communitypolicing#Herts#police#HertsPolice
[DIET AND TRAINING TECHNIQUES FOR COPS] The question is this.. How do you overcome job stress, improve performance, and keep your body in a fat burning state 24/7?
1.) Develop healthy eating habits both on and off the job. We would recommend counting your calories and hitting your protein goal each day (protein—> 1-1.5 g/lb). Pack your meals ahead of time and bring your lunch to work. The best way to avoid donuts and late night Wawa is to avoid the situation altogether. BE PREPARED!
2.) Exercise daily. Make sure your routine improves performance (on and off the job), Fat Loss, and strength. We would recommend HIIT and compound movements (bench press, deadlift, squat) and their variations to maximize these areas. .
3.) Create daily habits that help you stay on track, crush your goals, reduce stress and stay positive. We would recommend morning journaling, writing down your short and long term goals, getting natural sunlight, stretching, working out, and surrounding yourself with positive goal-oriented people.
If you are interested in learning more about diet, training, supplementation, and stress reduction, click the link in our bio for details and set up your free call if you would like. We help aspiring officers get hired and we help current officers create the happiest and healthiest versions of themselves. Live long enough to enjoy your pension.

A ribbon cutting was held tonight for Community Memorial Health System’s new hospital! The new facility was made possible by our community and many partnerships. The hospital is set to open this Sunday. Having quality health care during an emergency is a big part of keeping our community safe. We appreciate our partnerships with medical providers in serving Ventura. @cmhshealth #ventura#newhospital#healthcare#community#communitypolicing
We had such a great time at our 1st Shop with a Cop event at @target in South Bay Center! Thank you to the @bostonpolice for hosting this amazing event and for having us.
Officers were paired up with different aged kids and shopped together for presents.
Every child deserves to enjoy the holiday season and through all the different events we partake in during this month, we try and make sure that's exactly what happens.
Thank you to all the children and their families for being so sweet to us. Our community relations are vital to our community engagement and crime prevention mission.
Earlier today SLPD had the pleasure of gathering with members of our school community, students from the Timberlake Tigers Leadership Class, and CEO Sam Carlino from @cwwraps to unveil our newly re-designed, and recently dedicated SRO (School Resource Officer) Vehicle!
Sam and his team donated this beautiful work of art to our department, which is now a visual representation of the immense pride we have in our schools and students.
In addition to the wrap, other local businesses stepped up with donations as well such as C & L Repair in Athol and Perfection Tire Rathdrum. "Not only at the school level, but at the foundational level of our community, we want our youth to know that we support them, that we are on their team, and that this is THEIR department," said Chief Sanchez. "Both on campus and off, we strive to continually improve our relationships and strengthen ties with our community and the addition of this vehicle is one more way we can achieve that." Without the generosity from Sam's team and everyone else who was involved, this project would not have been possible.
We thank each and every one of you from the bottom of our hearts on behalf of the Spirit Lake Police Department and the entire City of Spirit Lake!
GO TIGERS!!! @lakeland272
