APD Traffic Unit responds to complaints and crashes

first_img Praying for all the law enforcement officers as they go about their daytime and nighttime duties, as it is such dangerous times, and I just want you all to know, you all are very much appreciated! God bless you all and stay safe as best you can! Mama Mia Also saw something different that maybe everyone else has seen, but I hadn’t. It was a regular looking Apopka police car that had writing on the side that stated something like, Community Patrol, I believe is what it said, and the guy driving had a COA coral -colored shirt on, that had in big letters printed on the back, Park Ranger, and he was packing a gun and hoister on his side…….at least that is what it looked like to me. Is that something new, or have I just not seen him before? January 12, 2017 at 6:23 pm Mama Mia January 12, 2017 at 5:48 pm I got the experience of going and getting my drivers license renewed yesterday and using the Flow Mobile parked at city hall parking lot. It turned out to be a good experience, and I did not have to go through the nightmare that awaits every time I go over to Lockhart with hundreds waiting to be serviced, but the worst is the fighting over the parking spaces when I have to go to Lockhart. Now I can obtain a passport to head to Canada or Australia if the crud gets too thick under the new president….LOL..!!!…and I don’t have to renew my drivers license again until 2025!!!! Holy cow!!! My hair color looked great in my new photo under their lighting, only thing is though, I have a habit of closing my eyes when photos are taken, so I tried hard not to blink, and the result is I have that “deer in the headlight look” on my DL photo……….but hey, I didn’t blink, LOL. I sure hope that badge I am speaking about is in the counter, and not on top of the counter, and is only sold to those who are suppose to wear them, and are not stolen from the shop!!! It surprised me to see that badge there………. Mama Mia 10 COMMENTS Reply You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here January 14, 2017 at 3:02 pm Reply Mama Mia TAGSApopka Police Departmenttraffic Previous articleMove Over Florida!Next articleCity responds to issues with wastewater treatment facility Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Mama Mia Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter January 12, 2017 at 6:13 pm Regular readers of our weekly Arrest Report may have noticed a significant uptick in the number of traffic citations in the last three weeks.  For most of 2016 the Apopka Police Department averaged 35 to 40 traffic citations per week.  But in the last three weeks the issued citations has averaged more than twice that number.What’s different?According to APD Captain Randy Fernandez, the increase in citation activity is the result of input from Apopka citizens.“In 2016 Chief McKinley received a lot of feedback from the public,” said Fernandez. “Traffic enforcement is a priority in Apopka.”The new City budget has allowed APD to re-allocate resources assigned to traffic issues.“All of our patrol officers enforce traffic laws,” said Fernandez. “But we also have four traffic unit officers who are on the street 100% of the time.”The 2016-2017 budget included funding for two civilian Traffic Infraction Enforcement Officers. The TIEO’s now review red light camera videos.The increased street presence has been noticed by many residents who have seen the officers monitoring vehicle speeds in residential neighborhoods.The officer’s view using a laser speed device.“For the most part speed limit enforcement activities are in response to resident complaints,” said APD Lieutenant Steve Brick. “When we receive speeding complaints we will often use speed detection sensors to monitor a roadway for a week or more.  These sensors collect data on every vehicle that passes.  By analyzing the data we can not only determine the number of vehicles that were speeding but also the time of day when the speeding is occurring.  This allows us to determine the best time to assign officers to traffic enforcement.”APD uses multiple devices to measure vehicle speeds, including a hand-held laser that allows the officer to target specific vehicles.While safer roadways are an obvious benefit, routine traffic stops can also bring to light more serious criminal activity. Use this link to read an recent example.While the Traffic Unit can plan and schedule selected traffic enforcement they cannot plan ahead for one of the most important services they provide to the Apopka community; Vehicle Crash Investigations. On average the traffic unit investigates 20 crashes every week. Since crashes are, by their very nature unplanned, the traffic unit often must suspend other activities to respond as quickly as possible.APD only investigates crashes that occur in their jurisdiction.  Many of the roads around Apopka are actually under the jurisdiction of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.  These crashes are investigated by the Florida Highway Patrol.Officer Cliff MacDonald is currently assigned to the traffic unit and enjoys the challenges associated with crash investigations.  “We have to recreate the incident in order to determine exactly what happened,” says MacDonald. “But I find solving the hit-and-run crashes the most satisfying.”MacDonald went on to describe a case where the only clue was a car part found at the scene.  The part had a serial number and he was able to determine it came from a white Lexus. Investigators pulled the DMV records on all the white Lexus’ registered in Florida and narrowed the list to only those registered in Apopka.  They were able to visually inspect all but one vehicle. None had any damage.  Surveillance indicated the owner of the last vehicle kept it parked in a garage.  A search warrant was obtained and, when the vehicle was inspected it was missing the part found by the roadside.  Case solved. January 14, 2017 at 10:02 am Mama Mia Mama Mia Yes, I have seen a lot more police everywhere here lately, and I think it is due to the manhunt for that bad guy. Saw a bunch of police at Walgreens uptown yesterday and they had a guy sitting on the sidewalk in front of the store with his hands handcuffed behind his back. Wonder what he did? Also have seen a bunch of police speeding across town with their sirens on and ambulance following today in the afternoon. The town is jumping with calls. Mama Miacenter_img Reply The Anatomy of Fear meant to say, I am going to quit answering the door, because I don’t know about some of these people….sorry. Mama Mia I know a state trooper can write you a traffic ticket anywhere, I think, but it surprises me to see the state troopers parked on Vick Road sometimes with their radar guns out pointing them at you as you drive by. I guess I expected the city police officers to be the ones sitting there catching the speeders, and if I am not mistaken, I think I remember a FHP car sitting there to catch the speeders too, one time. What gives? January 13, 2017 at 7:04 am Also there are a lot more people coming through the neighborhood and knocking on doors trying to sell things, way more than normal. I am going to quit answering the door because I don’t about some of these people! Reply January 12, 2017 at 6:08 pm Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

I told him there is nothing wrong with our windshield, at all, and he walked around our vehicle, and started looking around closely at our windshield, and he said there is no cost to you all. I said, ” NO, and it isn’t going to happen, we don’t want your service, and don’t need a new windshield, as there is nothing wrong with ours. This was at the Errol Winn-Dixe parking lot either Wednesday or Thursday evening, not sure which day. They were persistent even though I told them no firmly……..I watched for them after coming back out of the grocery store, and then saw that there was another girl with them. Just ridiculous………..so beware if you go to Errol Winn-Dixie parking lot, or maybe they moved on somewhere else, don’t know…………..

Todd Clever cited for off the ball hit against Russia

first_imgFriday Sep 16, 2011 Todd Clever cited for off the ball hit against Russia USA Eagles captain Todd Clever has been cited for dangerous tackling and dangerous charging.Update 17/09/2011: Clever clearedThe offence was deemed to be at the lower end of the scale of seriousness.“In particular the judiciary officer determined that the contact was between the USA player’s upper arm and the victim player’s chest,” said the judiciary statement.“It was a glancing contact as the victim player was already falling away as a result of a legitimate tackle by another USA player. There was no adverse effect on the victim player or the match and the offence could not be described as a body check, which would have been more serious.”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error RWC Extra Related Articles 502 WEEKS AGO Alesana Tuilagi smashes a reporter 502 WEEKS AGO All Blacks victory parade in Auckland with… 502 WEEKS AGO IRB Awards 2011 Highlights From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The strongest gesture is the inverted pyramid roof which creates a clerestory window around the upper level.

Protest in Germany defends Syria, hits NATO

first_imgPhoto: Arbeiterfotografie.comOn Sept. 1, a broad coalition of people from German, Syrian and Turkish progressive and patriotic groups in Frankfurt, Germany, protested the aggressive intervention of NATO countries and Arab monarchies against Syria. Several thousand joined the protest, answering the call of the Frankfurt Solidarity Committees for Syria to march through the city center on the day the German peace movement commemorates as World Peace Day.In Germany, as in the U.S. and other NATO countries, an avalanche of propaganda in the corporate media has demonized the Syrian government. It is thus all the more important that the Frankfurt committees stood against this pressure.Although a small group of opponents of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad tried to provoke the marchers, the demonstrationproceeded without disruption. It ended with speeches and live music at an exciting final rally at Römerberg Square, where Frankfurt’s town hall is located. “Sign at right reads “Non-violent solution for Syria.”— Report by Cathrin Schütz from FrankfurtFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
