    Every two years, the ISCPP has a “changing of the guard” and a new Board of Directors comes into office. This was the case in Black Hawk, Colorado this last September where we swore into office the new Board of Directors for the ISCPP. I am pleased to announce that our current board brings about 191 total years of experience to their ISCPP Board positions. They are active and retired law enforcement, educators and crime prevention specialists. They bring a new energy and some great ideas to our organization and I am very excited about our future opportunities. I would also like to thank those board members who have left to pursue other challenges. We thank them for all their time and efforts to the ISCPP.

    The Symposium began with the attendees receiving a Tactical Messenger Bag, specially made for the ISCPP in Colorado. There was a welcome back pack full of Black Hawk commemorative items, the ISCPP Commemorative Symposium patch and a Symposium Guide book that included the Symposium schedule, descriptions of each presentation and a biography of each presenter, city maps of Black Hawk and central City and coupons to use during the Symposium. Breakfast and lunch was served each day and was included in the Symposium registration fee. The Ameristar Resort was a an ideal setting in the majestic Colorado Rockies.

    On Friday, September 16, 2016, at the ISCPP Symposium, we were treated to the Crime Prevention Awards Luncheon. 

    The luncheon began with a message from Dr. Anthony Pranno, the Police Chaplin for the Commerce City Police Department. We then watched as Special Agent Eric Jergenson from the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force gave a presentation on terrorism. The 2016-2018 Board of Directors were sworn in and then we began the awards.

    Most crime prevention practitioners would agree that an efficient way of getting the job done is to convince people to self-regulate with respect to obeying the law. That is precisely the aim of Restorative Justice. 

    An ancient method that predates our court system, Restorative Justice has emerged independently in many civilizations throughout the world. The process is intuitive because it is based on our innate biological programed traits of empathy, compliance and shame that keeps most people doing the right thing most of the time, thus enabling us to live in groups.

    Barricade Box 

    Before I was in Crime Prevention, I was a School Resource Officer (SRO). As a SRO, I spoke to teachers and administration about the challenges to lock the door to classrooms in case there was an active shooter. 

    Some schools won’t let there be a lock on the inside to prevent children from locking the teacher out of the room. While this is good in theory, it’s a problem dealing with an active shooter.

    Editor’s Note: This is the second part of the article from the previous issue of the Practitioner. 

    To continue our discussion of considerations for individual offices and rooms: 

     Office furniture arranged so that the person occupying the office has clear visibility of outside activity and ease of quick exit from office if needed. 

     PA system or other means of internal communication with an easily understood message delivery process.

    Situational Awareness: Maintain your focus! Keep the cell phone tucked away and out of sight. Scan the area before exiting the store or your vehicle. 

    Purses: Ditch the purse and pare down what you carry. All you really need in most cases is a driver’s license, credit card, maybe a $20 bill and your key fob. The less you carry the less of a target you will be. 

    During the holidays, teams operate in parking lots and prey on women with dangling purses. We have had several cases where women held on to the purse during a purse snatching and were badly injured. Not carrying a purse is safer.

    Recently, I was at a large American retail chain store and was standing in line to purchase a few items in the “self check out” counter at the store. I’ve found it quicker to do the transaction myself than wait in line for a employee to check me out. 

    The lady in front of me began her transaction and then expressed frustration when the machine asked her to insert her chip enabled credit card into the chip reader. 

    “You’d think that credit card purchases would get faster rather than slower!” She vented to no one in particular. 

    Most of the other people in line agreed with her sentiment.
