Refocus of Community Safety Will Better Serve Public

first_imgDumfries and Galloway council AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInDumfries and Galloway Council’s Communities Committee will meet on Tuesday 24 January and will be asked to agree to a refocusing of the Community Safety Team.The Community Safety Team is responsible for a plethora of roles to keep communities safe, clean and tidy including issuing fixed penalty notices for fly tipping, dog fouling and littering. As well as this, community safety officers patrol neighbourhoods of the region to keep vandalism and anti-social behaviour rates low. The Team was formed in 2012 and amalgamated community wardens, car park inspectors and the anti-social behaviour teams into one large team.Councillors will hear at the meeting that the review received a significant level of support from everyone who participated in the review, and there was a clear consensus that the community safety team would benefit from a refreshed approach.This will not lead to any loss of service for the public of the region though. In fact, the report lays out how the team will operate moving forward, with a larger emphasis being placed on deploying officers to hand out fixed penalty notices to dog foulers and fly tippers – both of these issues continually rank highly as issues that the public see as vital to address in the annual community safety survey.The refreshed model of working will focus on 12 outward facing improvement actions as a way of working, and measuring how successfully the team is performing. These include adopting a risk-based approach and improving public awareness of the team as a community asset. The team will also focus on early intervention and prevention rather than trying to deal with problems as and when they occur.Councillor Tom McAughtrie, who is Chairman of the Communities Committee welcomed the report ahead of the meeting. He said;“This report details exactly how the community safety team will work in the future. These changes will benefit the residents of Dumfries and Galloway both in the short and longer term. By increasing our work with key partners and stakeholders we’ll be able to dedicate more resources to catching those who continue to throw rubbish away wherever they like and let their dogs foul on our streets and in our parks. I hope my fellow committee members endorse this report and look would like to place on record my thanks to the community safety team for the work they do.”The full report can be found at; http://egenda.dumgal.gov.uk/aksdumgal/users/public/admin/kab53.pl?cmte=&type=M&arc=71&phase=twolast_img read more

The Future is developing very well in the present for the Tigers. Johnson led the first-teamers on Team Auburn past the backups on Team Tigers, 24-14, before an announced crowd of 62,143 at Jordan-Hare Stadium Saturday afternoon. The Montgomery native led the starting offense on four scoring drives during the first half of the annual spring game, going 14 for 22 for 252 yards with two touchdowns. “He has really good command of our offense,” Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said. “He probably held the ball a little too long a couple of throws, but, overall, I thought he did a good job.”Johnson connected with D’haquille Williams for a 36-yard score in the right corner of the end zone with 10:24 to go in the first half to make it 17-0.The 6-foot-5 230 pound Johnson, who had four completions of 25-plus yards, later found Myron Burton for a 43-yard touchdown.It wasn’t all smooth sailing for Johnson though, as he had a rough patch late in the first quarter and into the second, with five incompletions, all intended for Williams, over six throws before hitting Ricardo Louis on a 49-yard bomb and then finding Williams for a touchdown.“I didn’t perform to my best that I thought I should have performed but I did OK,” Johnson said. “It was really about giving our receivers a chance and let them make plays down the field … (The incompletions are) the plays that we got to make if we want to be successful this season.”Commentary: Gus, can we quit this game?Though he was not live, Johnson helped pave the way for Roc Thomas to score a 36-yard burst down the right sideline on the opening drive of the day.Thomas had a combined seven carries for 69 yards and two touchdowns, scoring for each squad during the first half, and had a 12-yard reception.“I think my O-line blocked pretty well up front and I think the receivers blocked out on the edge very well,” Thomas said. “It was just trying to be patient more and trying to do what they want me to do.”Burton, a redshirt-freshman, had seven receptions for 124 yards and the one score and was named the Offensive MVP. His 31-yard grab over the back of corner Michael Sherwood setup Thomas’ three-yard score, which put Team Tigers on the board and made it 24-7 at halftime.Safety Tray Matthews had five tackles, an interception in the end zone and forced a fumble to earn Defensive MVP honors.Though he supposedly split first-team reps with Johnson all spring, Sean White worked exclusively with the second-teamers on A-Day.The redshirt-freshman went 15 for 19 for 109 yards but was “sacked” three times and led only one scoring drive on six possessions.Go Mobile, Montgomery! Download our apps here“We were up against the first-team defense and we were just trying to take what they gave us,” White said. “I wish we could have stretched the field a little bit more but it didn’t end up working out that way. … I wish we could have had more scoring drives.”With the one remaining spring practice focused on corrections Auburn will spend the offseason focusing on individual improvements in order to make all aspects of the team more efficient in the fall.“As long as we make plays down the field vertically,” Johnson said, “We are going to be very successful.” Auburn wide receiver D’haquille Williams catches a touchdown over Auburn defensive back Kamryn Melton during the Auburn A-Day spring game on Saturday, April 18, 2015, at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, Ala.

Nationals Need to Learn how to Find Late Round Gems

first_imgThe Washington Nationals revitalized their organization by having two consecutive first overall picks in 2009 and 2010 that turned into Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper. Having those two top overall picks along with drafting Anthony Rendon with the sixth overall pick in 2011 have led the Nationals into playoff contention for the last two years as well as this year. However the teams that stay consistent in being in playoff contention like the St. Louis Cardinals or the San Francisco Giants drafted extremely well even though they do not have picks in the top half of the first round and to continue to succeed in the MLB the Nationals must start finding gems that others have passed over like arguably the best player in the MLB, who was picked with the 25th overall pick in 2009, Mike Trout.The Nationals will have the 18th overall pick in tonight’s first round and will look to make the smart pick that keeps the franchise with young talented players. Those who think the Nationals could not find talent at the 18th overall pick haven’t been watching the draft in recent years. Such great players who have been drafted with the 18th overall pick in recent years consist of Sonny Gray and Ike Davis. Gray is currently leading the ERA in the American League while Davis hit 30 home runs last season.The Nationals top prospect, Lucas Giolito, was selected with the 16th overall pick two years ago and appears set on a path to be a great starter for the Nationals in the future. After not having a pick last season the Nationals will look to bounce back with a good draft pick in the first round with possible options consisting of outfielder Michael Conforto, right handed pitcher Sean Reid-Foley, and catcher Max Pentecost.Since coming to the nation’s capital the Nationals have been aware and have avoided taking high school players that have already committed to a college. The Nationals also aren’t afraid of picking pitchers who are coming off of an injury like they did with Lucas Giolito.If the Nationals wish to place themselves in the elite class of MLB franchises they need to learn how to draft not just with the obvious picks like Strasburg and Harper but how to find the hidden gems in the latter half of the first round.Please follow and like us:last_img read more
