Police: “Active Armed Intruder” personal safety Workshop for the public on June 23 (and latest logs)

Post image for Police: “Active Armed Intruder” personal safety Workshop for the public on June 23 <em>(and latest logs)</em>

A few weeks ago, friends were debating how to respond in a public shooting scenario. I realized that unlike trained Town staff and students, most of us don’t know what to do.

I asked Chief Kenneth Paulhus if he had any tips I could share on the subject. He previewed that he would soon have something better to offer. The Southborough Police Department was planning to hold a training for any residents concerned about the issue.

(Note: In the meantime, he had also answered one specific question I had about how to silently contact police. Read about that here.)

That workshop planning is now complete. This week, the department issued an invitation to the public for a session on Saturday, June 23rd. The invitation comes complete with free childcare:

On, June 23, 2018, at 2:00 p.m., the Southborough Police Department will offer a free 90-minute workshop at Trottier Middle School on techniques for personal safety involving an Active Armed Intruder. Residents are encouraged to attend the class which will be taught by School Resource Officer Kevin Landry. The workshop covers maintaining situational awareness in public and private spaces, responses for dangerous situations, and advice on how to best respond immediately. The workshop is different from ALICE training offered in schools. It has been taught to town employees, and local business staff with positive reviews.

The event is in collaboration with the Southborough Youth and Family Services who will provide childcare for parents wishing to attend. Please e-mail Sarah Cassell at scassel@southboroughma.com to make arrangements.

Officer Landry can be reached at klandry@southboroughma.com for anyone seeking further information on the event.

Now on to what the SPD had been up to over the past week. Below are the latest police logs.

I have to admit that I’m not the biggest fan of the new log system launched over the winter.

Don’t get me wrong – I don’t fault the SPD or think they should go back to the old method. It was clearly more labor intensive and therefore also more sporadic. (And I don’t think anyone wants to pay for extra staffing just to get less sterile police logs.) I’m just nostalgic for the occasional “color” missing from the administratively-efficient-data-dumps.

For instance, last week, the local media reported that Southborough officers were involved in a bit of drama with a K-9 manhunt in the woods. The SPD computer spit that out as:

18-5817 0247 ASSIST OTHER AGENCY *Report Taken
Location/Address: MAIN ST

Anyway, for what it’s worth, here are the SPD logs (as reformatted by me)* covering June 5th – 11th. They don’t provide much detail. But they once again signal that the department was busy!

*[Editor’s Note:

  • By law, the police logs omit domestic disturbances, including related arrests. (Which means police can be even busier than they appear to be.)
  • Radar Assignment is generally used to summarize multiple Vehicle Stops/Citations.
  • By blog policy, I strip out the names of any individuals listed as arrested.
  • I edited the log format and some of the original abbreviations to make it easier for blog readers to follow. You can find the SPD’s original, unedited logs on Facebook here.]

Beth,
I totally agree with you about the new police log. Despite all your efforts, I just want to skim over it for unusual occurrences around town, and things in my neighborhood. I wonder if readers would be opposed to eliminating the list of radar assignments and motor vehicle stops?

I do reformat their log to try to make it visually easier to skim through those. (I wonder if that works or not. You can compare to one of their original logs on Facebook here.)

But I know that the Police Department wants the traffic enforcement included for an important reason. They get frequent complaints about speeding/requests for better road monitoring. The logs demonstrate that they’re putting a lot of hours into it – and give some insight about where officers have been monitoring/patrolling.

Where are the radar patrols for Parkerville Road (north)?

Posted limit of 30 MPH (thickly settled), two schools and traffic regularly racing through morning and evening, typically before and during school drop-off & pickup.

Most of the ‘racers’ are parents with their students and commuters using the street as a cutoff to bypass the light at Main St.

It’s not unusual to have cars going 45-50 MPH!

How about more traffic calming ‘speed tables’?
