Municipal Police Making An Impact In Western JA

first_imgAdvertisements Municipal Police Making An Impact In Western JA Local GovernmentJune 9, 2010 RelatedMunicipal Police Making An Impact In Western JA RelatedMunicipal Police Making An Impact In Western JAcenter_img RelatedMunicipal Police Making An Impact In Western JA FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail It began in the parish of St. James in July, 2004 with 15 persons recruited as pioneers in a pilot programme being implemented by the Department of Local Government.Today, in four of the parishes in western Jamaica, the cadre stands at 51 officers, and they can be seen in the town centres of Savanna-la-Mar, Westmoreland; Lucea, Hanover; Falmouth, Trelawny and Montego Bay, St. James.The necessity for the establishment of this cadre of persons came about because of the terrible traffic congestions, caused most times by unruly behaviour, which often occurred in towns in the region, as well as illegal street vending, mounting of illegal billboards and failure to secure trading licences, among many other anti-social activities, which fall under the responsibilities of the local authorities.St. James Municipal Police Officer, Julian Rodney, who has special responsibility for the enforcement of the Places of Amusement Act, goes over an application for a planned entertainment event.This led to the establishment of the Municipal Police Force within the Parish Councils in the western region, starting in St. James then extending to Hanover, Westmoreland and Trelawny, by March, 2008. The men and women who signed up to serve in the Force have been given specialised training, and are sworn District Constables with the power of arrest.The duties of the Municipal Police Officers can be categorised into three main areas, namely: Operations, Revenue Collections and Compliance/Enforcement. The emphasis is placed on various areas, according to the requirements of each parish. They are often supported by the Island Special Constabulary Force (ISCF), which works very closely with the Local Authorities.Secretary/Manager of the Hanover Parish Council, Patricia Sinclair-Stair, in an interview with JIS News, emphasised that the need for the Municipal Police within the parishes is very great. She added that there is now a lobby within the Local Authorities to further support them with Municipal Courts.“Although the ISCF assists us sometimes, for us to do a good job we have to have our own (policing), and so it is based on these and other things that the Department of Local Government saw it fit to introduce municipal policing to its Local Authorities,” she stated.“And the next thing that we are working at, and hope that it will come into being soon to compliment the work of the Municipal Police, is the Municipal Court,” she said.She argued that the establishment of the Municipal Court is necessary, as the Local Authorities are now having a hard time getting their matters heard in the Resident Magistrate’s Courts, because of the vast amount of civil matters clogging that system.Mayor of Montego Bay and Chairman of the St. James Parish Council, Councillor Charles Sinclair Jnr., told JIS News that although revenue generation is not the primary aim of the Force, since their introduction, the St. James Parish Council has seen a noticeable increase in revenues. He said the effectiveness of the Officers has led to a compliance rate within the town and its environs of about 98 per cent, in terms of securing licences, permits and other legal requirements for operating within those areas.He said that in terms of barbers and hairdressers, in 2009/2010 the revenue collected from them was $2.5 million, compared to the 2008/2009 figure of $1.7 million. Noting that there has been no increase in fees, he confirmed that the increase in revenue had to come from an increase in the compliance rate, due to the effective monitoring. He also noted similar increases in other areas, due mainly to the work of the Municipal Police.Both the Mayor and Mrs. Sinclair-Stair maintained that the responses from respective Councils to the activities of the Municipal Police have been favourable. They expect that once the teething pains are over and persons get used to being disciplined for abnormal and anti-social behaviour and activities, good social behaviour will become the norm.They both insist that there is now a high level of co-operation from residents throughout these parishes.Municipal Police Officer for St. James, Julian Rodney, in an interview with JIS News explained that in her day to day activities, there are times when she meets resistance, but that she takes great pleasure in exercising patience to get the public to understand the policies and procedures.Ms. Rodney said that she does her best to ensure, for example, that persons go through the proper procedures when applying for their amusement permits and are only penalised when no effort is made to comply with the Places of Amusement Act, which governs entertainment activities and the display of advertisements related to such activities.Municipal and Commercial Services Coordinator at the St. James Parish Council, Ricardo Rhoden, who has direct supervisory responsibility for the Municipal Police in the parish, had high praise for the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) and the ISCF, for the assistance they continually render to the Local Authority, in general, and the Municipal Police, in particular.He said that the establishment of the Municipal Police Corp has produced positive results, especially with regards to the maintenance of safety and health issues throughout the parish.last_img read more

Astros take Alex Bregman at No. 2

first_imgLSU shortstop Alex Bregman (8) was drafted by the Houston Astros.LSU shortstop Alex Bregman (8) was drafted by the Houston Astros.LSU junior shortstop Alex Bregman was picked No. 2 by the Houston Astros in the first round of the MLB First-Year Draft Monday night.“It really hasn’t hit me yet, it’s a dream come true,” Bregman said. “You grow up as a little kid wanting to play professional baseball one day and it is just a dream come true to hear your name called. It’s due to all my great teammates and coaches that I’ve had the last couple of years.”Bregman helped lead the Tigers to their 17th College World Series appearance this season, hitting .312 and driving in 49 runs while smacking nine home runs.“I kind of just tried to put it in the back of my mind and just focus on playing baseball and having fun doing it,” Bregman said. “I just wanted us to go to Omaha and I thought everything else what take care of itself and it did.”He gained acclaim throughout the season with his highlight plays defensively at shortstop for the Tigers. Going into the season Bregman’s strength was his offense, but according to several MLB scouting outlets impressed teams with his defense throughout the season.In his freshman season Bregman won the Brooks Wallace award as the nation’s best shortstop and was also named to the first-team, all-American squad after batting .369 with 52 RBIs.Bregman’s career game high’s contain one eight-RBI game against Northwestern State in 2014 and four hits three times (Tulane, 2013; Northwestern State, 2014; Houston 2014).Bregman broke out of his postseason-long slump in the best possible moment for the Tigers in the Super Regional against University of Louisiana at Lafayette, driving in two runs on an RBI-single up the middle.The Tigers will continue their quest for their seventh national championship on June 14 at 2 p.m. against either TCU or Texas A&M in their first game of the College World Series.“I’m just happy I get to spend this time with my family and my close friends,” Bregman said. “It’s a really surreal experience, but let’s go win some more games we aren’t done yet.”LSU coach Paul Mainieri heaped praise on Bregman after the pick was announced, and knows he will have quite a hole to fill in the middle of his infield next season.“He’s like a son to me,” Mainieri said. “There isn’t a player who works hard, and I couldn’t be happier for him.”Bregman’s actual father, Sam, said throughout the day Bregman wasn’t nervous, but definitely had anxious energy to burn off.“I was out earlier hitting some balls, we’ve still got work to do,” Alex Bregman said.Sam Bregman said while he couldn’t go into detail of the Astros plan for his son, he know what Alex’s plan was once his LSU season was over and he joined the Astros organization.“(Alex’s) plan is to go work his ass off and be the best minor league player in the league,” Sam Bregman said. “Everything is else will work itself out.”last_img read more

Jimmy Butler credits 76ers teammates for buzzer-beater heroics

first_imgJimmy Butler insists his buzzer-beating heroics in the 76ers’ dramatic win over the Nets was only possible due to the confidence of his teammates.Butler nailed a game-winner for the second time in seven appearances with the 76ers, as Philadelphia triumphed 127-125 at the Barclays Center. The veteran forward, acquired from the Timberwolves in November, knocked down a step-back three-pointer with less than a second left in a match in which the 76ers were trailing by 13 with five minutes, 38 seconds remaining.But Butler was keen to ensure that the credit for the win went to the entire team and coach Brett Brown.”[It was] another play drawn up by coach,” Butler said, via “My teammates have a lot of confidence in me to take shots late; hopefully, I make shots late as well.”I got to the spot that I wanted to, raised up, and knocked it down.”To tell you the truth, it could have been anybody. They do have a lot of confidence in me, but I got so much more confidence in those guys.”They really got us back in the game. Joel [Embiid] throwing the ball off the backboard, and everybody else making shots… it’s so fun to play that way.”Then, in the end, I just made one play out of the many that were already made.”Came out on top in Brooklyn.— Philadelphia 76ers (@sixers) November 26, 2018Brown was equally impressed with Butler’s work in securing Philadelphia the ball back shortly before his last-gasp intervention. “The TVs are going to replay his shot,” he said. “I hope they go a few seconds earlier and see him dive on the floor and secure a jump ball.”[It was] similar to the play he made in Charlotte where he saved [the ball] over his head and came back and made the shot, there’s another connection to his shot that he makes at the end of the game to win it for us.”He was massive down the stretch.”last_img read more

Coming Soon: Pen Apps for HTC’s Flyer?

first_imgWhy IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces The first thing I discovered when using the pen is that my handwriting is terrible. I mean really, really bad. Even illegible, in some cases. I often struggle with this problem during interviews where pen and paper are required, but with the tablet, it’s worse. Plus, for some reason, I’d often accidentally launch the keyboard and pen palette with my wrist when I went to write. The palette, which offers various pen options like felt-tip, ballpoint, pencil, etc. pops up on the right-side the screen. HTC says that “palm rejection” only works when the stylus touches the screen prior to the palm and/or wrist. There may be times when the pen isn’t touching the screen, which can cause accidental touches, I’m told. It seems the “wrist sensitivity” here needs work, but there’s currently not a setting where you can adjust this.That said, what’s most attractive about this pen-input system is that the Flyer offers deep integration with the note-taking and archiving service Evernote. Within HTC’s Notes app, the scribbles and notes you make can be synced with your Evernote account, allowing you to keep online digital archives of your tablet’s digital notebook. If you’re an Evernote addict, you’re going to love it, assuming you don’t run into the same troubles I did.The Notes app also offers other nifty options, like the ability to record audio while you’re jotting down notes. Great for interviews and meetings, sure, but maybe not so great for students, where a notebook with a full keyboard probably makes more sense. The HTC Flyer is a newer 7-inch Android-based tablet, which distinguishes itself by offering a unique feature: pen-based input. Not a stylus, you understand, a pen. While a stylus is essentially a stick that lets you press areas of a touch-sensitive screen in order to navigate through the software, the Flyer’s pen is for real-world tasks like drawing, writing or scribbling on top of photos. It is an optional augmentation to touch, not a replacement.With the upcoming launch of HTC’s recently announced OpenSense SDK, developers will have an opportunity to build apps that take advantage of the pen’s functionality. But should they?The Pen Experience on the HTC Flyer The question is: should developers dedicate their arguably limited resources to a niche product? That’s a harder question to answer. HTC does have the largest group of developers outside of Google itself, according to CEO Peter Chou, and it has gone on record as feeling “very good” about the Flyer’s initial sales, whatever that means. Plus, those who do choose to create specialized apps will probably receive special attention, both from HTC and the tablet’s early adopters.But, at the end of the day, developers would be looking at a very narrow market, in terms of Android tablets, as well as all tablets and all of mobile. Even within the Flyer’s own market, not all customers will buy the optional $80 pen. That’s a small, small market.There’s also a deeper question here: does the future of mobile computing have room for the pen, or is everything going to be redesigned for touch? Tags:#Android#apps#mobile sarah perez The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Another feature, which doesn’t have an accompanying application icon, making it somewhat hidden to new users, is Scribbles. To use this app, you tap the screen with your pen in order to draw on a photo of what’s on your screen. There will be plenty of scenarios where this sort of thing will be useful, but each one of them is serving a niche use case, not an overall consumer need. For example, developers could circle and annotate parts of their app’s design that need work, bloggers could mark up photos with notes a la Perez Hilton, you could customize a map with more personalized directions and landmarks instead of just emailing a link, you could make silly captions on friends’ photos before posting to Facebook, and so on. It’s a fun feature, but is it enough of one to convince users to get a Flyer, and not an iPad 2? Doubtful.Finally, the Flyer also includes a Reader app which is powered by Kobo. It’s handy to be able to take notes in these books or, using a special button on the pen, highlight parts of the text, but there’s not an option for importing open formats, including PDFs, which makes it sort of a non-starter for students. HTC says there are no plans to add more formats, either. Also, the pen doesn’t work in other book reading apps, like Amazon’s Kindle.Developers: Build for Pens?Soon, HTC will launch its OpenSense SDK for developers, allowing them to build applications that specifically take advantage of the pen functionality supported in the Flyer. Here’s where things could get interesting. Developers could write a note-taking app that outperforms HTC’s own, for example. There are numerous opportunities to build apps for artists, thanks to the variety of brushes and pen tips available by default in the Flyer.You could also imagine apps targeted towards kids, like digital coloring books or e-learning games (Circle the right answer!).

Social Shorts: Instagram pulls ad partner, Facebook fights ad fraud, new Chief Creative Officer at Leo Burnett Chicago

Click here to subscribe and get more news like this delivered to your inbox every morning. Instagram Marketing Partner caught scraping data. Instagram has sent HYP3R, one of its former ad partners, a cease-and-desist letter after Business Insider revealed the company was scraping user data. According to Business Insider’s report, the company had taken advantage of “configuration errors and lax oversight” on Instagram’s part, making it possible to harvest a high volume of public user data that was meant to vanish after 24-hours. An Instagram spokesperson said HYP3R’s actions were not sanctioned and violated its ad policies: “As a result, we’ve removed them from our platform. We’ve also made a product change that should help prevent other companies from scraping public location pages in this way.” But HYP3R argues it didn’t break the rules, claiming it was accessing public data and that, “Any issue with Instagram would be resolved shortly.” Business Insider said it is unclear how much data HYP3R accessed, but the company claims it has a dataset that includes “hundreds of millions of the highest value consumers in the world.” Sources connected to HYP3R told Business Insider that more than 90% of that data was from Instagram.Facebook’s latest move to fight ad fraud. Facebook has filed a lawsuit against LionMobi and JediMobi, two app developers accused of click injection fraud on the Facebook Audience Network ad platform. According to Jessica Romero, Facebook’s Director of Platform Enforcement and Litigation, the app developers created apps available via the Google Play store designed to infect users’ phones with malware that produced fake user clicks on Facebook ads. “Our lawsuit is one of the first of its kind against this practice,” writes Romero on the Facebook Newsroom blog, “Facebook detected this fraud as part of our continuous efforts to investigate and stop abuse by app developers and any abuse of our advertising products. LionMobi and JediMobi have been banned from Audience Network and their accounts have been disabled.” Romero said the advertisers impacted by LionMobi and JediMobi’s ad fraud practices were refunded in March of this year. Ad fraud continues to be an industry-wide problem, but platforms are paying more attention to publisher and advertiser concerns and taking actions to reduce problematic activity. Google announced this week that Google Ad Manager and AdMob, Google’s mobile ad network, will support IAB Tech Lab’s app-ads.txt anti-fraud protocol for app publishers beginning August 27. When implemented, the app-ads.txt protocol blocks ad serving of unauthorized in-app ad inventory for publishers. ProKarma expands offerings with latest acquisition. The digital services company ProKarma has acquired Connective DX, a digital experience agency with offices in Portland, Oregon and Boston, Massachusetts. “Together, we will expand on our end-to-end digital capabilities while defining, designing, and engineering best-in-class solutions that transform businesses and elevate the customer experience,” said ProKarma Co-Founder Vijay Ijju. “It’s a remarkable fit between our two organizations, and I am thrilled to see the meaningful growth potential with our joint teams and clients,” said Connective DX CEO Paul Williams. Both companies currently have their headquarters in Portland, Oregon. According to the announcement, the acquisition will help “fuel” ProKarma’s expansion into the Northeast U.S., as well as help build out ProKarma’s content and martech capabilities with the addition of Connective DX’s customer-focused solutions. On the Move Leo Burnett Chicago has promoted Jordan Doucette to Chief Creative Officer, reporting to the agency’s President and Chief Strategy Officer, Emma Montgomery and Leo Burnett Worldwide’s Chief Creative Officer, Liz Taylor. “Jordan’s open approach to creativity helps deliver great work from big, integrated teams and brands. She is a true partner and is the evolution of what a creative leader needs to be in today’s environment,” said Montgomery. Previously, Doucette held the role of EVP/Executive Creative Director at the agency, and was the creative lead for The Kellogg Company and Miller-Coors accounts. In her new role, she will continue as the creative lead for marquee clients and oversee the agency’s creative and production departments.Saad Rehmani has been named Vice President of Engineering at Reddit. He is tasked with scaling the company’s engineering organization, optimizing site performance and supporting the launch of new features on the platform. “With the growth of our engineering teams in recent years, we knew we needed someone that had proven themselves in leading large teams with a focus on staying flexible and nimble. Saad has the right mix of experience to evolve and support our teams as they tackle our ambitious plans for the future,” said Reddit CTO Chris Slowe. Rehmani comes to the social platform with more than 15 years of experience leading engineering teams, most recently as the VP of Engineering for GrubHub. Veracode, an application security testing platform, has named Elana Anderson Chief Marketing Officer. She will report to CEO Sam King and lead the technology company’s global marketing, branding and communications programs. “Elana’s success building global brands in established and emerging markets is a testament to her deep technology expertise and marketing prowess. She is a proven executive with boundless energy and innovative ideas that will help us further our mission to help our customers change the world securely and drive the next chapter of Veracode’s growth,” said King. During her career, Anderson has served as the CMO for Vidyo and SVP of Worldwide Marketing for Demandware. Craig Stimmel, the former head of digital media and global partnerships for P&G, has been recruited by Snap to serve as its new head of brand partnerships. Based in Chicago, Stimmel will lead efforts to gain bigger budgets from Fortune 500 brands on the social platform, according to Business Insider. Stimmel was with P&G for more than eight years. During his time there, he led efforts to bring more media buying in-house and gathered first-party data from P&G’s own platforms. Paradigm Talent Agency has named Lori Feldman as its first chief marketing officer. In her new role, Feldman will lead brand partnerships and marketing efforts for clients in the music area, as well as work on enhancing brand and partnership opportunities for the agency’s talent and literary clients. “She is an innovative thinker with vast experience working with artists and brands to create cultural moments that resonate around the world,” said Paradigm CEO Sam Gores. Before joining Paradigm, Feldman served as the executive vice president of strategic marketing for Warner Records. Pet food company WellPet LLC has appointed Clark Reinhard as its new chief marketing officer. Clark will be charged with accelerating global growth across WellPet’s family of brands and oversee brand management, marketing, advertising and public relations for a number of the company’s product lines. “We’ve strategically invested in brands that are shaping the pet nutrition category and are putting team members in place uniquely experienced to help them flourish,” said the company’s CEO Camelle Kent. “There’s no doubt in my mind Clark will do just that for all of our brands at WellPet.” Reinhard previously led growth strategy efforts, marketing and product innovation at Ocean Spray.
