How do I report police misconduct?

Originally posted on Nevada State Personnel Watch:

If you feel that police have violated your rights, or you’ve witnessed police misconduct against someone else, do not panic. It’s normal to feel intimidated. But responding to misconduct is an essential step towards protecting yourself and your community from future police abuse.

 

There are several steps to the process of combating police misconduct. You must approach them in a calm and organized manner.

Step 1: Write everything down

This step is extremely important and must be done as soon as possible after the incident. It’s easy to forget small details over time, and there’s no way to know which facts will make a difference later on.

Carson City Man Ivan Botello Arrested for ‘under age’ Revenge Porn

By Audra Schroeder on September 09, 2013 Email

REVENGE PORNOn Friday, a 28-year-old Carson City, Nev. resident named Ivan Botello was arrested for “arranging to have revenge porn posted online.” However, the act of revenge porn was not his crime; it was that the woman in the photos he was arranging to revenge-post, who is his ex-girlfriend, was 16 at the time they were taken. According to Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong:

She consented to the pictures at the time he took them, but after their relationship had gone bad, he continued to harass her.

Nevada does not currently have laws in place that criminalize revenge porn. However, California has made efforts to crack down on revenge porn by attempting to pass a bill that would make the dissemination of nude photos “with the intent to cause serious emotional distress” illegal.

Former SLTPD Johnny Poland officer receives 18-month prison sentence

Johnny-PolandJohnny Gerald Poland, 45, a former South Lake Tahoe police officer, was sentenced Wednesday to 18 months in prison for one count of obstruction of an official proceeding, according to a U.S. Department of Justice news release.

Poland pleaded guilty in May to the one federal obstruction charge.

A federal complaint was issued Jan. 22 by Christopher Campion, a special agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, citing Poland with five federal obstruction charges.

Within Campion’s complaint, the agent stated law enforcement received “uncorroborated information” that Poland, as a South Tahoe High School resource officer from 20-06, “made sexual advancements on minor students, failed to arrest high school students for illicit drug possession, had a sexual relationship with C1 (a minor at the time whose name was withheld from documents and alleged methamphetamine addict), disclosed law enforcement identities, and identified law enforcement (SLTPD) residence locations.” Continue reading

This will take place in the summer months on Sundays in the afternoon. One CHP vehicle will be stationed at the bottom of the passing lane as three to four CHP units will be further down the road to intercept the vehicle that are called in on the radio by the CHP stationed at the bottom of the passing lane. They don’t bother with anyone doing 5 to 10 or even 15 miles an hour over the posted 55 miles an hour sign as they are going for those who are doing over seventy mph. This passing lane is down hill and 55 mph is a safe speed for this dangerous busy mountainous road and so the CHP is trying to save some lives but you can get away with 60 mph, any faster calls for a disaster in winter.

Hearts of gold: Truckee officers help stranded Neil Young

neil youngTRUCKEE, Calif. — It’s not every day you come across a rock music legend stranded in the Sierra.

But that’s what happened on Friday, Aug. 23, when singer-songwriter Neil Young’s one-of-a-kind, $1 million electric vehicle broke down on Interstate 80 near Donner Summit.

Officers with the Truckee branch of the California Highway Patrol came upon the stranded Young and helped him get off the highway.

After posing for a few photos and signing autographs, Young repaired his custom-built car and was back on the road, said CHP Public Information Officer Pete Mann.

The Canadian-born rock star told CHP he drives the car across North America promoting green, sustainable living and encouraging less dependency on oil. He was on his way to a green festival in Canada, he told officers.

The Toronto native — whose full name is Neil Percival Young — is a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer both as a solo artist (inducted in 1995) and as a member of Buffalo Springfield (inducted in 1997).

He is best-known for the songs “Heart of Gold,” Down by the River,” “Cowgirl in the Sand,” “Ohio” and “Rockin’ In The Free World,” among several other major hits.

Sobriety checkpoints take place Friday August 30th in So. Lake Tahoe

SLTPD CHECK PIONTLocal law enforcement agencies will conduct sobriety checkpoints Friday on U.S. Highway 50 in South Lake Tahoe. “By publicizing our efforts we believe that we can deter motorists from drinking and driving,”
PR Pond | Aug 29 2013

A news release from the California Highway Patrol stated the agency along with the South Lake Tahoe Police Department and the El Dorado County District Attorney’s Office will conduct a sobriety checkpoint on Friday, Aug. 30 on U.S. Highway 50 in South Lake Tahoe.

Officers trained to detect alcohol and drug use will conduct the checkpoint.

Officers stated in the release that they want to make a safer driving environment with a high volume of traffic in the area.

“A sobriety checkpoint is an effective tool for achieving this goal and is designed to augment existing patrol operations. By publicizing our efforts we believe that we can deter motorists from drinking and driving,” CHP Lt. Brian Cook said in the release.

Cook said traffic volume will dictate the number of vehicles checked by officers. Drivers suspected to be under the influence of alcohol, drugs or both will most likely be arrested and spend a night in the county’s South Lake Tahoe Jail. “Our objective is to send a clear message to those considering mixing alcohol and/or drugs with driving,” Cook said in the release. “We will be looking for you.”

The program is funded by a California Office of Traffic Safety grant through the Business, Transportation and Housing Agency, the release stated.

A wildfire raging along the northwest edge of California’s Yosemite National Park gained strength as firefighters scrambled to protect nearby mountain communities.

The fire held steady overnight at nearly 200 square miles (more than 500 square kilometres), but a spokesman for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection says firefighters didn’t get their usual reprieve from cooler early morning temperatures Saturday.

SLTPD streached thin because of recent homicides in South Lake Tahoe

crime scene sltThe acts of violence have stretched the police department’s resources and overtime pay, according to Lt. Brian Williams. Eric Heinz,. Aug 23 2013 Police officials in the South Lake Tahoe area have been dealing with more homicide investigations than in the last few years, which has required more working hours and overtime pay than usual. Between July 20 and Aug. 14, Julian Acevedo, Manpreet Singh and Shirley Gordon were murdered, according to South Lake Tahoe Police Department. The three homicides in three weeks have bucked a five-year trend in the South Lake Tahoe area.

According to data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Unified Crime Reporting website, from 2007 to 2011, South Lake Tahoe had three “murders and non-negligent manslaughters,” with none in 2009 and 2010. Statistics were not available for 2012. Two of the murders have yet to be solved — or even procure a public announcement of a suspect’s name — and one has a suspect in custody.

“There’s no relation between the homicides,” South Lake Tahoe Police Chief Brian Uhler said. “It doesn’t seem to be one perpetrator or a group of perpetrators. We just happen to have the unfortunate occurrence of these events that statistically were out of the ordinary for us. And they all happened to come at one time.” The acts of violence have stretched the police department’s resources and overtime pay, according to Lt. Brian Williams. Numbers of average overtime payment for the department were not available, but Williams said typically in a two-week pay period, the cost of overtime during high-volume population times could be between $6,000 to $8,000 and sometimes $10,000. That does not include dispatch payments. According to actual figures from the department’s last three overtime pay periods (starting July 19, a day before the fatal stabbing of Acevedo), the July 19 payment period was $15,000; Aug. 2 was $25,000; and Aug. 16 was $31,000. Those figures account for the entire department and all the cases officers may be putting in for overtime, but Uhler said 75 percent of the overtime money during this time frame has been dedicated to the homicide cases. Each overtime pay rate is different depending on the position of the respective officer. “This doesn’t account for the overtime that the outside agencies are paying to their personnel,” Williams said. Uhler said he is …  – See more at: http://inedc.com/1-5785#sthash.Hzap3Ebw.dpuf

El Dorado County DA Vern Pierson Accused of Grand Jury Abuse

 Editor’s Note: We have just received a copy of the court filing and we are providing these sections without alteration.  We will continue to report on this issue after we have processed the complete document.

INTRODUCTION

Convening a criminal grand jury to consider an indictment against an accused person, while permitted under California law, is far less common than the process of complaint, preliminary hearing, information and trial. Without debating the merits and demerits of the two different approaches, the fact is that proceeding by grand jury indictment deprives the accused of the basic procedural protections included under an information proceeding, including the right to be represented by counsel, the right to an adversary proceeding including the cross-examination of witnesses and objection to improper questioning, the right to present exculpatory evidence and witnesses favorable to the defense, and the participation of an impartial magistrate to ensure that evidence presented is admissible over objection.

Janet Field follows her dog’s rescuers off the peak of Mount Tallac on July 28.

A CHP helicopter had to airlift a Meyers woman and her dog off Mount Tallac on Sunday July 28, 2013.

Janet Field called El Dorado County sheriff’s deputies from the top of the South Shore peak about 3pm July 28 to alert them she could not make it down because her dog, Samson, had raw pads and could not walk any farther.

Deputies’ instructions on how to bandage the dog’s paws did not work. And the dog was too big be carried out by its owner.

Field was not in a position to stay the night or hike out in the dark because of the light clothing she was wearing and the lack of food and water.

At 6pm the California Highway Patrol helicopter was able to get Field and her dog off the mountain.

The Nevada Highway Patrol released this photograph of the area where Cody J. Dobson, 31, of Carson City was injured in a hit and run accident on Aug. 19, 2013. / Nevada Highway Patrol

The Nevada Highway Patrol is still seeking information about a hit-and-run accident that critically injured a Carson City man early Saturday Aug 03, 2013 as he walked in Stateline.

Cody J. Dobson, 31, was walking just east of the casino corridor on U.S. 50 or a sidewalk near Lake Parkway when he was hit at about 3:13 a.m., the NHP said.

One witness told the NHP he was driving west when he saw someone in an eastbound lane and when he turned around to help he saw a full-size, blue Dodge pickup hit the person in the road. The Dodge may have a camper shell that is a matching color.

Dobson was flown to Renown Regional Medical Center by Cal Star and was listed in critical condition on Monday morning, the NHP said. It appears Dobson had been drinking, the NHP said.

The NHP asks anyone with information about the incident to contact Trooper Doug Hildebrand at 775-689-4623 or dhildebrand@dps.state.nv.us about case NHP-130800861. Witnesses can also call dispatch at 775-687-0400.

lemonade policeRENO, Nev. (AP) — County health department officials say they’re working on a permit solution for two girls whose lemonade stand was shut down at the Reno-Tahoe Open earlier this month.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports 12-year-old Emma Farrell and 14-year-old Alex Farrell were cited for selling food without a permit at the event.lemonade police swat

Washoe County Health District spokesman Phil Ulibarri says the department doesn’t normally regulate children’s lemonade stands but this one was operating inside the Monteux Golf and Country Club where the tournament was taking place.

Ulibarri says other vendors paid event fees to set up shop inside, so the department cited the girls and their parents after receiving complaints.  Ulibarri says the health department is working to get the girls permits for future events, which will cost $38.
