4 SOUTH PORTLAND POLICE DEPARTMENT Policy and Guidelines

5 SOUTH PORTLAND POLICE DEPARTMENT STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURES The South Portland Police Department has policies outlining, in detail, guidelines and procedures that assist the officer with traffic enforcement. Policy # 4-41 specifically addresses the use of a safety belt by the officer and other individuals in any department vehicle. It also addresses the safe operation of the police vehicle by the officer. Policy #6-61 outlines traffic law enforcement, specifically enforcement procedures for speed violations and operating under the influence violations. Additionally, policy #6-61C addresses the procedures for checkpoints for OUI and Safety Belt violations. The South Portland Police Department as of 2007 does not have a policy that includes specific language addressing safety belt enforcement.

6 SOUTH PORTLAND POLICE DEPARTMENT STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURES Subject: Operation of Police Vehicles Policy # 4-41 Effective Date: January 25, 2008 Review: Annually Distribution: All Personnel # of pages: 10 I. PURPOSE: To establish policy regarding the routine and non-routine operation of police vehicles. II. POLICY: While no task, call, or incident justifies the disregard of public safety, it is in the best interest of public safety to advocate a safe and prompt response to true emergencies, as well as to discourage dangerous drivers or criminals from fleeing without any fear of police pursuit and apprehension. Therefore, it is the policy of this department to narrowly regulate non-routine operation of police vehicles. Personnel operating department vehicles shall exercise due regard for the safety of the public and other officers while enforcing the law. III. DEFINITIONS: A. Due Regard: actions which a reasonable officer would perform in the same manner under similar circumstances. B. Routine Operation: the normal day to day operation of an emergency vehicle in conformance with normal traffic laws and rules of the road. C. Non-routine Operation: the operation of an emergency vehicle outside of normal traffic laws and rules of the road, specifically including: 1. Emergency Response: the operation of an emergency vehicle in response to a true emergency ( Code 3 Response ). 2. Pursuit & Pursuit Driving: the operation of an emergency vehicle for the purpose of catching up, following or overtaking another vehicle in order to attempt to stop and apprehend an alleged law violator or suspect who, after having been requested or signaled to stop, attempts to elude a law enforcement officer by operating a vehicle in a reckless manner or at a high rate of speed.

7 1. Unless it is unsafe to do so, the operator shall ensure that all persons driving or riding in a department vehicle, including prisoners, are using the vehicle s safety belts. 2. Except in the police station parking lot, police vehicles should be locked when left unattended. No police vehicle should be left unattended with its engine left on, unless the vehicle is locked or occupied by a police K9. 3. Non-emergency escorts of funerals, motorcades, parades, etc., may be approved under the authority of the on-duty Shift Commander. 4. Police vehicles with push bumpers may be used to move disabled / stalled vehicles that present an immediate public safety hazard or major traffic disruption. Any damage caused during this process will be reported immediately to a supervisor. A report should be completed and forwarded to the Office of Professional Standards for review. B. Non-routine Operations General Rules: 1. Only sworn officers are permitted to operate police vehicles during nonroutine operations. 2. Operating a police vehicle during non-routine operations places an increased burden on the officer to use caution and drive with the due regard for the safety of others while assuming the right of way over other vehicles and exercising the privileges permitted by statute. Factors that must be considered in making this decision include, but are not limited to: a. the safety of the public b. the nature or seriousness of the incident or offense; c. road, terrain and weather conditions; d. time of day, lighting, and visibility; e. pedestrian and vehicular traffic conditions; f. patrol vehicle and operator conditions and capabilities; g. type of vehicle involved (motorcycle, high performance, off road); h. population density of the area (residential, business, highway); i. officer s knowledge and familiarity of the area; j. quality of radio communications; k. age of suspect adult or juvenile; l. overall likelihood of a safe apprehension.

8 SOUTH PORTLAND POLICE DEPARTMENT STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURES Subject: Traffic Law Enforcement Policy # 6-61 Effective Date: May 15, 2007 Review: Annually Distribution: All Personnel # of pages: 9 I. PURPOSE: To establish traffic enforcement guidelines aimed at discouraging traffic violations, reducing traffic crashes, suppressing criminal activity and expediting the flow of traffic within the City of South Portland. II. POLICY: This department believes that the enforcement of both civil and criminal traffic laws and ordinances is a basic responsibility of all South Portland police officers. All uniformed officers should be alert for and proactively enforce - traffic violations. III. TRAFFIC STOP PROCEDURES - General: A. Officer Identification: 1. Consistent with 29-A, M.R.S.A., section 105, only uniformed officers may stop a motor vehicle. 2. As it is the belief of this department that increased deterrence is accomplished most effectively through the use of visible patrol, marked police vehicles will be used for all day-to-day traffic enforcement activities. Officers may position marked vehicles in any manner so as to maximize traffic enforcement effectiveness as long as it does not impede the flow of traffic or otherwise pose a hazard. 3. With supervisory approval, uniformed officers may use unmarked police vehicles for traffic enforcement or other details that warrant their use over marked units. The vehicle must be equipped with blue lights, alternating headlights and siren. B. Traffic Stop Guidelines: 1. Officers may, with a reasonable and articulable suspicion, stop a motor vehicle for any of the following reasons: a. a violation of the criminal code, including knowledge of an existing warrant of arrest for the driver or passenger b. a criminal or civil motor vehicle violation of Title 29-A

9 V. ENFORCEMENT PROCEDURES: A. Use of Speed Measuring Devices (Radar): 1. The department will use Doppler radar as the primary method of measuring motor vehicle speeds. 2. Only officers who are certified by the Maine Criminal Justice Academy in using and checking the calibration of Doppler radar may use the department s radar units. 3. Officers are accountable for the maintenance and proper care of their assigned radar units and are expected to report any problems to the Shift Commander, who shall notify the Day Shift Sergeant. 4. The Day Shift Sergeant will ensure that all radar units and tuning forks are calibrated is calibrated by the manufacturer or Maine Department of Weights and Measures, respectively, or by other qualified individuals at least once per year. The Day Shift Sergeant will maintain all certification and maintenance records for all departmental radar units and tuning forks. Copies of calibration records will be furnished to the Court Officer whenever recertification occurs. B. Enforcement Actions: 1. It is the duty of all officers to observe, detect, and prevent violations of traffic laws and to take appropriate enforcement action. Each officer is to use discretion in deciding what enforcement action is proper, based on training, experience, and common sense. Enforcement options include: a. Warning / Defect: A written warning or defect is appropriate when circumstances warrant, for instance, in the case of an inadvertent or nonhazardous violation. Officers will document basic warning information (driver and violation) into CAD notes b. Summonses (USAC / VSAC): A summons is appropriate for any traffic violation when the officer believes that court action is warranted or when the violation jeopardizes the safe and efficient flow of traffic. An officer must fully complete the summons and explain the summons and options to the motorist. 1) The Violations Summons and Complaint (VSAC) is used to charge a violator with an infraction. An offense report is not required, but a narrative description of the violation should be written on the back of the police / prosecutor copy.

10 2) The Uniform Summons and Complaint (USAC) may be used to charge a violator with a misdemeanor or felony traffic offense. A written offense report is required when a violator is arrested or is charged with a license violation. A USAC issued for a non-license violation shall include a description of the violation on the back of the police / prosecutor copy. 3) An offense report must include the reason for the stop; how identification of the violator was made; how the violator s DOB was obtained; statements made by the violator; facts substantiating the elements of the offense; DMV record (attached to the summons); and witness statements, if applicable. 4) Completed summonses are turned in by the end of the shift for entry into the Master Name file, referenced to the Incident Number assigned to the initial contact. The paperwork is then forwarded to the Court Officer. 5) The Court Officer will maintain a supply of VSACs and USACs for use by this department. The Shift Commander will assign VSACs and USACs to individual officers, as needed, and forward the information to the Court Officer. c. Arrest: An arrest is appropriate for any traffic violation when Maine law allows an arrest and the officer believes that the nature of the violation necessitates an appearance before a magistrate. Examples would include OUI, OAS for OUI and Driving to Endanger. Officers have the option to PR bail an arrestee from the scene or from the South Portland Police Department for misdemeanor offenses when circumstances allow (Maine resident with no history of failure to appear, for example). Court appearances and options will be assigned and explained by a bail commissioner. d. Adverse Report: Referral of Driver for License Re-examination: Title 29-A, M.R.S.A., section 1309, allows a law enforcement officer to report to the Secretary of State any person believed to have a physical or mental disability that would prevent that person from operating a motor vehicle in a safe manner. The Adverse Report to the Secretary of State will include the person s name, address, date of birth, and a complete description of the suspected problem. A report template will be contained on the police intranet. e. Motor Vehicle Complaint Letter: This letter may be sent as a courtesy to the registered owner of a vehicle seen by a citizen violating a motor vehicle law when there is no enforcement action taken.

11 C. OUI - Alcohol or Other Drugs: 1. Pre-Arrest Screening: 2. Arrest: a. Each officer who contacts a person and suspects an OUI violation has occurred should screen that person, using as many field sobriety tests as needed. It is recommended that a minimum of three tests be administered whenever possible. b. It is encouraged that officers trained in Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus (HGN) be utilized whenever possible. a. Arrests shall be based upon probable cause. b. The violator s vehicle will be handled according to the guide-lines of SOP # 8-84-A, VEHICLE INVENTORY / TOWING. c. Transport the violator to the police station or the Cumberland County Jail. d. Attempt to obtain a blood alcohol test, consistent with training. If the violator refuses or questions the chemical testing process, read the Maine Implied Consent Form. f. Complete the OUI Offense Report and arrest reports. g. Attach to the paperwork a computer printout of the violator s driving history in Maine and any other state(s) indicated by the violator s residency or employment history. Request a certified copy of the driving history from the same sources to confirm any prior convictions for OUI or related offenses. h. Paperwork to be forwarded to the Secretary of State and / or District Attorney (Probable Cause Form, Implied Consent Refusal and Intoxilyzer BAC test results) must be properly notarized (signed in front of a Notary Public) before being submission. i. There will be some instances when an arrest will not be possible or practical, such as when the violator is hospitalized after an accident or at a sobriety checkpoint. In those instances, a USAC may be issued to summons the violator to court. All other forms must be completed as well.

12 3. Chemical Tests: a. All violators shall be afforded the opportunity to take a chemical test. b. An Intoxilyzer test will be offered because it is a reliable and cost effective means of measuring BAC (Blood Alcohol Content). c. A test to measure BAC shall be offered in all traffic cases involving serious personal injury or death. The use of the Intoxilyzer is permissible unless extenuating circumstances exist. e. A blood test shall be offered when there are open cuts or bleeding in the area of the mouth or in other situations when a breath test is unreasonable. A list of certified blood technicians shall be maintained in the dispatch center, to be called in rotation if the person s physician is not reasonably available. 4. Drug Recognition Technician (DRT) / Drug Recognition Expert (DRE): a. When an officer believes that a person is operating under the influence of a drug other than alcohol, an arrest should be made. If the Intoxilyzer results indicate a BAC of.08% or higher, there is no need to notify a DRT / DRE.

13 SOUTH PORTLAND POLICE DEPARTMENT STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURES Subject: Checkpoints / Roadblocks Policy #: 6-61-C Effective Date: May 15, 2007 Review: Annually Distribution: All Personnel # of pages: 3 I. PURPOSE: To ensure public and officer safety by establishing guidelines for conducting checkpoints and roadblocks. II. POLICY: The South Portland Police Department will allow authorized uses of checkpoints as an investigative, enforcement and roadway safety tool. Roadblocks are prohibited, except as outlined below.

B. Checkpoint Site Selection: 1. Any member of the department may recommend a checkpoint location. 2. The Chief of Police or Shift Commander will determine the exact location, ensuring that the site provides ample sight distance on approach to the checkpoint from either direction, and provides ample road shoulder or pull in area for the safety of the officer or persons or vehicles that may be detained

20 SOUTH PORTLAND POLICE DEPARTMENT Incentives and Recognition

21 South Portland Police Department Awards and Recognition OFFICER OF THE MONTH The South Portland Police Department, in an effort to recognize police officers for efforts and accomplishments in their day-to-day performance and to commend officers who perform beyond the call of duty, has established a policy whereby all officers may be nominated for special recognition. The policy reflects the philosophy that it is a culmination of factors which qualifies an officer for this special recognition, not any single act. The nominated officers must possess and reflect the qualities and image favorable to a professional organization and must be utilizing applicable community oriented policing techniques. Several of the criteria on which each officer is considered reflect a commitment to keep the community safe and the pursuit of knowledge through participation in training opportunities. Traffic enforcement, including OUI and Safety Belt Roadblocks, and participation in department initiatives such as safety belt installations are examples of those activities which are considered during the review process of all nominees. The following are the Officer of the Month recipients for January Detective Frank Stepnick February Officer Paul Lambert March Officer Robert Libby April Officer Scott Corbett May Officer Linda Barker June Officer Kevin Battle July Officer Adam Howard August Officer Jeff Pooler September Officer Ben Macisso October Officer David Stailing November Scott Corbett December Officer Patricia Maynard

25 POLICE DEPARTMENT EDWARD J. GOOGINS CHIEF OF POLICE AMY J. BERRY DEPUTY CHIEF TO: Deputy Chief Berry FROM: Lieutenant Frank Toderico & Sgt. George Berry DATE: February 1, 2007 SUBJ: Officer of the Month The candidate from the Day Shift for the January Officer of the Month is Officer Linda Barker. Officer Barker possesses many talents and capabilities and the following are examples of some of the work that she has accomplished during the past month: Working in conjunction with area residents and Day Shift Patrol officers, Officer Barker has made an obvious impact on traffic issues in and around the SMCC campus. Members of the community who live in the immediate area believe that traffic problems have declined over the past few months and they have expressed their appreciation for the attention that Officer Barker has given to their concerns. Helped to secure grant funding from the Cumberland County Underage Drinking Enforcement Task Force. The lion s share of the $3, grant will provide overtime money for police officers to conduct underage drinking enforcement details. Officer Barker and Bob Scarpelli collaborated on the writing of the grant and continue to maintain contact with the CCUDETF by attending all scheduled meetings. Officer Barker started her tenth year of Smokeless Saturday by hosting a session for 10 students in the Public Safety Training Room on January 6 th. Officer Barker continues to remain enthusiastic about the work that she does and has always displayed a spirit of determination to provide the community with an exceptional level of police service. For all of the above-mentioned reasons, we are proud to submit Officer Linda Barker as the Day Shift candidate for Officer of the Month January Respectfully submitted; Lt. Frank Toderico

26 Sgt. George Berry POLICE DEPARTMENT EDWARD J. GOOGINS CHIEF OF POLICE AMY J. BERRY DEPUTY CHIEF TO: Deputy Chief Berry FROM: Lt. Bernard SUBJECT: Officer of the Month DATE: February 4 th, 2007 The C Team Proudly nominates Officer Patti Maynard for Officer of the Month for January I am proud to nominate Officer Patti Maynard. Patti is a solid officer who demonstrates an amazing work ethic. She solicits more work and gives 110 percent on her calls. Her almost photographic memory has come in handy on many occasions. She is sought out by all members of the department when they want to find the identity of an individual. She responded to dozens of calls during the month. Some of the highlights include: A domestic disturbance on Stanford Street where she talked a teen that was in crisis into going to the MMC for an evaluation. Arrested Scott Wood for Habitual offender. Did a great job at a 911 hang up where she dealt with a drunk female who wanted to commit suicide. She talked her into obtaining help and took her to MMC. Received a call of a Lexus in the Cottage Road area with two juveniles in the trunk. She located the car and summonsed 2 of them for possession of alcohol and drugs. Summonsed a male for possession of marijuana during a 911 hang up call. Responded to 5 in all calls for people threatening suicide. All were dealt with professionally and all she was able to talk in to going voluntarily to MMC. Patti is very thorough in her calls and reports. She is also very compassionate especially dealing with kids. She received a call about kids hanging around 17 Bonny Briar Road. She located two teen girls who Patti thought were getting into trouble. She took the time to make contact with parents and over several days kept checking on them. Both girls had dropped out of school. Patti was able to talk them into getting back into school and to following house rules set by the mother. She also did a very good job dealing with the family of Calvin Peters who had died by hanging himself. At the request of the detective bureau she interviewed several kids looking into reports that he had been playing the hanging game. These reports were unfounded but her efforts deserve recognition. It is for these reasons I am submitting her for Officer of the Month.

27 Lt. Todd Bernard POLICE DEPARTMENT EDWARD J. GOOGINS CHIEF OF POLICE AMY J. BERRY DEPUTY CHIEF TO: Deputy Chief Berry FROM: Sgt. Barlow SUBJECT: Officer of the Month DATE: February 05, 2007 I would like to nominate Officer Scott Corbett as the D-Team candidate for Officer of the Month for January Officer Scott Corbett is a well balanced and hard working patrolman. He consistently proves to be one of patrol s most proactive officers in both traffic enforcement and crime suppression. His success stems from his strong work ethic and his superb patrol instincts. He is a loyal and dedicated officer that can be depended upon to do an excellent and thorough job with all of his assigned tasks with little or no supervision. Scott represents himself, our department and his chosen profession with obvious pride as an active member of the honor guard, as a motor officer at various functions, part of the SRT marksman unit and as a leader in the demanding role of a field training officer. Some of Scott s self initiated contacts this month resulted in several drug arrests, 2 warrant arrests, 8 OAS s and a variety of traffic infractions. For the above reasons I am nominating Scott for Officer of the Month. Sincerely submitted by, Sgt. Todd Barlow
