5 MONTREAL POLICE SERVICE - NEIGHBOURHOOD STATION 26 Montreal, Quebec, Canada Human Resources Coordinator Isabelle Shamlian YORK REGIONAL POLICE Newmarket, Ontario, Canada Chief of Police Armand P. La Barge 3WINNER Côte-Des-Neiges Traffic Control Initiative A survey conducted by this police service revealed that over half the citizens of the Côte-des-Neiges borough believed the traffic in their neighbourhood was dangerous. Further analysis showed that 40 percent of the accidents occurred on just one public road. The police service sought to produce a rapid and long-lasting reduction in traffic accidents without increasing personnel, workload or budgets. Rather than conventional strategies, a resource management technique was implemented based on crackdown policing. The program uses prevention and communication initiatives as well as the creation of partnerships. After five years, accidents have decreased by 40 percent, and the cost benefit saving is estimated to be $4.5 million with a total of 3,500 police officer hours recuperated. The initiative is now a permanent strategy at Station 26. Project Leader: Commander Eric La Penna Phone: (514) Fax: (514) OTTAWA POLICE SERVICE Ottawa, Ontario, Canada Acting Chief Sue O Sullivan Strategic Staffing Initiative With rampant overtime, frontline staff on the verge of burning out, and community satisfaction with some services on the decline, this police service took a hard look at its staffing dilemma. Using an analytical approach, 200 new positions were identified, requiring an 8 percent increase in staffing. The goal of this innovative initiative is to have the right number and best personnel in place to meet the demand for police and community needs. The police service was able to forecast, monitor and manage the almost 450 newly hired sworn officers and civilians. The net operating budget impact was about $6 million a savings of over $7 million from the original estimated costs. A just-in-time inventory of fully trained individuals minimizes the impact of attrition in operational areas, and an Active Staffing component addresses long-term vacancies. Project Leader: Superintendent Knowlton Roberts Phone: (613) , Ext Fax: (613) WINNER Community Guns, Gangs and Youth Violence Strategy While statistics showed that the York region was safe, public opinion indicated an increased fear of youth in the community. In addition to field research, literature review and best practices studies, the police established a series of focus groups involving different councils and organizations. The community was brought together with front-line officers and social service agencies in a forum on guns, gangs and youth violence. The strategy is a fluid response that balances prevention, intervention and enforcement while engaging the community in sharing responsibility. Progress towards goals will be measured and will be part of a longitudinal study over several years. Already the police have delivered presentations to the community on the topics, and a Strategic Teen Enforcement Program is now in place. Project Leader: Inspector Paul Pedersen Phone: (905) , Ext Fax: (905) The Webber Seavey awards program offers a special and unique opportunity to share best practices and build partnerships in a global forum.

6 COUNTY OF SUFFOLK, NY POLICE DEPARTMENT Yaphank, New York Police Commissioner Richard Dormer DISTRICT SRI GANGANAGAR POLICE Rajasthan, India Director General of Police A.S. Gill 5FINALIST DISTRICT OF JAIPUR (EAST) POLICE Rajasthan, India Operation SAVE (Suffolk Aggressive Vessel Enforcement) This idyllic boating community confronted an alarming increase in serious boating accidents. From an average of 5.6 annually, boating accident fatalities reached a 22-year high of 10 deaths in one year. Four of those deaths were the result of boating while intoxicated. The circumstances were thoroughly investigated and comprehensive statistics on boating mishaps were carefully studied. Seasoned marine patrol officers as well as boating organizations and waterway users were called upon for input on reducing boating fatalities and making waterways safer. Based on this analysis, a unique multi-agency, multifaceted program was developed to promote boating safety through increased education and enforcement. The year after that deadly boating season, there was not a single boating fatality in the county. Project Leader: Captain Bill Read Phone: (631) Fax: (631) Director General of Police A.S. Gill Jansahabhagita: A Police Community Partnership Programme The Shipra Path Experiment Despite doing a good job of crime control, this police station faced a cycle of hostility, mistrust, indifference and inaction by the community. This multifaceted, holistic outreach program bridges the gap between police and public. Camps were organized to reach out to the community on a regular basis, and community liaison groups were set up at the state, district, police station and beat levels. Beats were reorganized into small areas and entrusted to their constables. Along with that, the constables were empowered, and police received training to motivate them and improve behavior. Since implementation, reporting of less heinous offenses has almost doubled, and residents and police now work together to find solutions. A global community assessment coordinated by Altus Global Alliance named Shipra Path the Top Police Station of the World. Project Leader: Superintendent V.K. Singh Phone: Fax: FINALIST Hardcore Criminal Scheme for Repeat Offenders When this district experienced a significant increase in crime by repeat offenders, the police responded with a focused approach combining professional policing with community involvement. Extensive criminal data was analyzed to identify more than 100 repeat offenders. Regular surveillance and monitoring were used as well as patrols and raids. Citizens were made aware of the recidivism problem, and their support was requested. The biggest challenge for the police was to overcome its fears and suspicion of the community and vice versa. Once the misunderstandings were resolved, the partnership grew. Results are very encouraging. While the number of repeat offenders committing crime reached a high of almost 90 in 2004, it has dropped to 32 and 27 in 2005 and 2006, respectively, since the program started. Project Leader: Superintendent Vineeta Thakur Phone: Fax: This program serves as an effective means of officially recognizing not only an excellent policing initiative, but also the underlying commitment of personnel, which by their collective actions have contributed to the success of their respective initiative.

7 GREATER SUDBURY POLICE SERVICE Sudbury, Ontario, Canada Chief of Police Ian Davidson FINALIST LOS ANGELES POLICE DEPARTMENT Los Angeles, California Deputy Chief Michel R. Moore FINALIST 7 Where Two Roads Meet Police Mkwa Opportunity Education Circle As the Greater Sudbury urban Aboriginal population grew, both historical and contemporary factors contributed to increasing tensions between the police service and the Aboriginal community. Among other concerns, the Aboriginal community reported negative perceptions and attitudes toward the police and did not consider law enforcement as either a respectable or viable profession. A new initiative was launched to enhance Aboriginal-police relations; to create learning opportunities for Aboriginal students who wished to pursue a career in law enforcement or in criminal justice through a collaborative effort with a local School Board; to establish meaningful relationships between Aboriginal youth and the police; and to provide a police mentoring program for the students that will enhance opportunities for future employment in the criminal justice field. To date, 75 Aboriginal students have participated in the program, stronger Aboriginal-police relationships have been built in the community, and the Service has been able to successfully attract Aboriginal applicants in both sworn and civilian positions. Project Leader: Superintendent Allan R. Lekun Phone: (705) Ext Fax: (705) Operations-Valley Bureau Motel Detail After several violent clashes with suspects including one in which a police officer was murdered in a motel parking lot the Motel Detail was created to monitor motels/hotels in the San Fernando Valley. A constant vigil is maintained on the comings and goings of suspects who use those locations to launch their criminal enterprise. The main focus is repeat offenders. To keep up with motel occupants, crime trends and wanted suspects, the officers establish working relationships with the motel/hotel owners and divisional detectives. In 2 1/2 years of active enforcement, the unit has made 849 arrests, with 46 percent of those arrested considered repeat offenders. The Motel Detail has had a tremendous impact on property crimes by targeting career criminals and fugitives that are transient and use the motels/hotels as they travel throughout the city. Project Leader: Sergeant Jason Beatty Phone: (818) Fax: (818) MIAMI POLICE DEPARTMENT Miami, Florida Deputy Chief of Police Frank G. Fernandez FINALIST FINALIST RICHMOND POLICE DEPARTMENT Richmond, Virginia Sustained DUI Enforcement and Training This department saw DUI Manslaughter-related fatalities rise an alarming 500 percent from the previous year. A multi-pronged plan of action was formulated to decrease this number by increasing enforcement, strengthening ties with other law enforcement agencies, increasing DUI training for officers and educating the public. At monthly COMPSTAT meetings, the highest crash locations are scrutinized, and traffic enforcement activities are reviewed and compared to the prior months. A multi-agency task force fosters greater communication between the local law enforcement agencies. Among other tactics, the department s motor units conduct DUI Saturation Patrols during the evening hours. In the program s first year, DUI-Manslaughter fatalities were reduced by 40 percent, and speed-related crashes dropped 62.5 percent. Project Leader: Sergeant Luis Taborda Phone: (305) Fax: (305) Chief of Police Rodney D. Monroe Cooperative Violence Reduction Plan Richmond had the unwelcome reputation of being one of the most dangerous U.S. cities. This program is designed to reduce violence and improve the quality of life. A key component is the Violent Crimes Impact Team (VCIT), which is fully operational. Local, state and federal law enforcement and criminal justice stakeholders were brought together to coordinate the five-prong plan: prevention, deterrence, intervention, investigation and prosecution. The model uses data to identify the problem neighborhoods and offenders and then proposes multi-disciplinary strategies based on best practices. In two years since implementation, homicides are down 15 percent, and total violent crime dropped 24 percent. The Department of Justice recently announced a grant program for localities that enter into similar partnerships. Project Leader: Chief Rodney D. Monroe Phone: (804) Fax: (804)

8 DIPLOMATIC SECURITY SERVICE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE Rosslyn, Virginia Assistant Secretary Richard J. Griffin DURANT POLICE DEPARTMENT Durant, Oklahoma Chief of Police Gary D. Rudick 9SEMIFINALIST Operation Triple X This interagency mission targets illegal Indonesian counterfeit syndicates involved in everything from U.S. visa fraud to illegal immigration to alien smuggling and trafficking in people, drugs and guns to money laundering. Operation Triple X very successfully combined overt and covert international law enforcement operations. An international task force was coordinated at both national and local levels to identify and shut down 12 major criminal syndicates. Since inception, 24 raids and search warrants have been executed, 94 suspects have been arrested, charged and convicted, and 24 illegal operations have been shut down. More than 4,800 pieces of evidence have been collected. Additional assets and manpower will be supplemented by the Indonesian National Police to provide continued assistance to the success of this operation. Project Leader: Division Chief Carlos Matus Phone: (571) Fax: (571) DIRECCION DE SEGURIDAD PUBLICA MUNICIPAL DE CHIHUAHUA Chihuahua, Mexico Head of Quality Center Luis Manzanera Safe Neighbourhood Program This program s goal is to reduce violence in the colonies of this city by using a prevention strategy and involving the participation of the citizens. Support is offered to various areas of the community, including business, churches and schools. A System of Unified Statistical Zonification of Supervision (ZEUS) is used to identify affected city areas and determine if the problems are caused by administrative failures or a specific type of crime, such as robberies. At ZEUS meetings, the principal needs of the citizens are identified and action steps to solve the problems are determined. Since implementation, physical aggression has been reduced by 300 percent, and nonviolent robberies decreased 100 percent. With 29 colonies already implemented on the program, the target goal is to implement at least 40 colonies. Project Leader: Head of Quality Center Luis Manzanera Phone: Ext SEMIFINALIST SEMIFINALIST Blue Angel Program A survey of seniors confirmed what this department already suspected: Fear of crime and the perception of crime were affecting the quality of life for senior citizens. This new program was initiated to make elderly residents feel safe and important, assuring them that they were not forgotten. First, the program created a mechanism whereby seniors could be involved in checking on the welfare of each other on a regular basis. Among other benefits, this improved personal contact for the senior citizens. Second, officers are scheduled to eat lunch with the elderly at the Senior Center every Thursday. The officers discuss current crime-related issues and assure the seniors that their safety is important. This program has captured the attention of social services agencies that serve the elderly and has been duplicated in other jurisdictions. Project Leader: Chief Gary D. Rudick Phone: (580) Fax: (580) FAIRFAX COUNTY POLICE DEPARTMENT Fairfax, Virginia Chief of Police David M. Rohrer P CASO Project Protecting Children Against Sex Offenders This unique, public-private partnership has three goals: 1) enhance the capability of the department to proactively seek out and investigate sexual predators on the Internet and child pornography, 2) establish the department s capability to monitor and investigate registered sex offenders, and 3) significantly increase community education efforts in Internet safety and child exploitation issues. Specific performance objectives ensure that each member of the project understands exactly what is expected. One of the first initiatives was to compile a database of registered sex offenders. It is housed on the internal department network and is available to all sworn personnel and crime analysts 24 hours a day. With increased verification and enforcement, the out of compliance rate dropped by almost one-third in two years, to approximately 24.7 percent. Project Leader: Second Lieutenant Scott C. Durham Phone: (703) Fax: (703)

9 J&K POLICE Srinagar J&K, India Chief of Criminal Investigation Kuldeep Khoda LOUISIANA STATE POLICE Baton Rouge, Louisiana Lieutenant Colonel Mickey D. McMorris SEMIFINALIST Village Defence Committee (VDC) The state of Jammu and Kashmir has been facing the brunt of terrorism for almost 20 years. Cross border terrorism has been spreading beyond the valley of Kashmir to Doda and other districts of Jammu province. To keep the terrorists at bay and provide a quick response mechanism on short notice, the government sanctioned 100 VDCs each for the two districts. The VDCs are composed of 8-12 members, who receive brief training in handling of weapons, and conduct night patrols in their villages. As the formation of VDCs gained momentum, the minority migration dropped to zero at one point. Violent incidents have noticeably declined. Already numbering 3,791 VDCs, the network is expected to grow further as the fight against terrorism becomes more of the citizens own fight against enemies of peace. Project Leader: Chief of Criminal Investigation Kuldeep Khoda Phone: Fax: KANSAS CITY MISSOURI POLICE DEPARTMENT Kansas City, Missouri Chief of Police James D. Corwin SEMIFINALIST 11 Parker Square Violence Reduction Project This 17-building, 240-unit public housing complex had long experienced a cycle of increasing criminal activity. Previous attempts by the police had little or no effect, and tenants did not trust the police or the management company. The key to the success of this plan is the accountability component. Weekly meetings, attended by police, tenants and the management company, created a greater sense of trust among all parties involved. A contract, between residents and the neighborhood association, called for a curfew for juveniles and created a no trespass list to help keep problem people out. The weekly meetings were eventually discontinued because tenants and management now are comfortable calling the police about potential problems. In 18 months since the program began, the residents report an improved quality of life. Project Leader: Major Gary Majors Phone: (816) Fax: (816) SEMIFINALIST SEMIFINALIST Louisiana Citizen Awareness and Disaster Evacuation Guide The need to reform the state s evacuation plan became evident in 2004 when traffic fleeing Hurricane Ivan experienced significant congestion, with delays of 12 to 14 hours. This department and several other agencies took on the task of revising the emergency response plan. Prior to the 2005 hurricane season, over 500,000 copies of this 22" x 34" color guide were distributed to the state s citizens. The process included a public outreach program initiated through numerous public facilities and media outlets. This planning was put to the test during Hurricane Katrina, with the successful evacuation of over 1.2 million Louisiana citizens in 600,000 vehicles well ahead of the landfall of the hurricane. This success can be linked to the combined approach of the agencies involved in reforming the evacuation plan and the effective dissemination of the plan. Project Leader: Lieutenant Mark Morrison Phone: (225) Fax: (225) NEWPORT NEWS POLICE DEPARTMENT Newport News, Virginia Chief of Police James D. Fox Community Education and Outreach Center As part of its ongoing community policing efforts, this department wanted to utilize an historical building, formerly a gas station, to raise the quality of life for citizens and to improve the effectiveness of law enforcement for the citizens. The police approached several volunteer groups and held numerous brainstorming sessions to share ideas regarding potential use and needed resources for the center. Involving citizens in the planning, programming and ongoing management of the facility was critical in ensuring the center s acceptance as a true neighborhood facility. The decision to use the building as a mini-museum allows citizens and visitors to browse, ask questions and interact with police personnel in an inviting, non-threatening way. The center is fully staffed by volunteers at a significant annual personnel savings. The photographs and other memorabilia, such as antique uniforms, date back to the late 1800s. This initiative promotes unity between different agencies, the diverse cultures of the citizens and the police department. Project Leader: Chief James D. Fox Phone: (757) Fax: (757)

10 ONTARIO PROVINCIAL POLICE Orillia, Ontario, Canada Superintendent William Snoddon PHOENIX POLICE DEPARTMENT Phoenix, Arizona Public Safety Manager/Chief of Police Jack F. Harris SEMIFINALIST Hot Spots As the Town of Caledon experienced a phenomenal rate of growth, another statistic climbed up as well. A review of the town s traffic management plan revealed a 33 percent increase in fatal collisions and a 39 percent increase in the number of people killed in just one year. After analyzing the data, 10 Hot Spots representing locations with the highest collision rates, traffic volume and complaints were identified and announced to the public. An aggressive enforcement and public awareness campaign was implemented. Among other measures, detachment officers conduct 50 percent of all traffic enforcement in Hot Spot locations. Auxiliary officers also canvass the areas, encouraging residents to participate in the Road Watch Program. In the first year of implementation, fatal vehicle collisions were reduced from 15 to 8. Project Leader: Inspector, Detachment Commander Andy Karski Phone: (905) Fax: (905) ONTARIO PROVINCIAL POLICE, HURON DETACHMENT Goderich, Ontario, Canada Inspector D.J. (Dan) Grant SEMIFINALIST 13 Huron Assessment Risk Reduction Team (HARRT) While most communities recognize the importance of identifying high-risk domestic violence victims, many communities have no mechanism in place to actively manage the cases. HARRT fills that systemic void by bringing together agencies to share information, coordinate responses and manage cases. The team meets monthly, or as required, and also consults with other agencies to develop appropriate responses to the particular cases being assessed. Since the program s inception, a substantial number of high-risk perpetrators have been identified and the necessary steps taken to reduce risk, such as relocating perpetrators to other jurisdictions in consultation with the courts and the police agency for those jurisdictions. The Crown Attorneys have expressed interest in establishing this type of team in other jurisdictions. Project Leader: Acting Detective Staff Sergeant Dwight Peer Phone: (519) Fax: (519) SEMIFINALIST SEMIFINALIST Continual Improvement Program This department s goal is to make Phoenix the safest major city in the nation. The department embraced the principles of quality management, developed the tools to facilitate implementation, and created a prototype management system to enhance the effectiveness of its safety and security service to the public. These actions resulted in the department becoming the first law enforcement agency in the United States and one of the first in the world to obtain an ISO registration through an independent third-party registrar. The use of ISO quality management principles has expanded from one bureau in July 2003 to 22 bureaus in April Significant improvements include delaying for at least six years the outlay of an estimated $11 million for construction of a new property warehouse, streamlining 80-plus core police processes, and enhancing case assignment techniques. Project Leader: David M. Amari Phone: (602) Fax: (602) SINGAPORE POLICE FORCE Singapore Commissioner of Police Khoo Boon Hui How Singapore Police Force Leverages on the Home Team to Combat Crime and Terrorism Crime and terrorism are becoming increasingly multifaceted and complex. To deal with these challenges, this police force capitalizes on an innovative model which levers on six partner agencies under the Ministry of Home Affairs, effectively forming the Home Team, to induce a whole-of-government approach. By leading other Home Team departments towards building up a safe and secure best home, the Singapore Police Force is able to synergize its efforts towards enhancing operational capabilities, strengthening community partnership and building organizational resilience. This has no doubt been instrumental to the Singapore Police Force s ability in bringing down crime over the past decade, and making Singapore one of the safest cities to live in.

11 TORONTO POLICE SERVICE Toronto, Ontario, Canada Chief of Police William Blair VALPARAISO POLICE DEPARTMENT Valparaiso, Indiana Chief of Police Michael Brickner SEMIFINALIST Toronto Anti-Violence Intervention Strategy (TAVIS) Faced with an unprecedented escalation in gun-related crime, this police service responded with a coordinated strategy to ensure community safety. The proactive approach required a restructuring of how the police service responds to violence as well as the establishment and enhancement of effective partnerships with communities, government and external law enforcement partners. All the strategy s initiatives support the primary objective of reducing violence and focus on four key components: intervention, prevention, enforcement, and most important, community mobilization. Continuous assessment of information and data provide the intelligence needed to deploy resources so criminals are not able to predict police responses and evade detection. A recent independent survey showed 96 percent of respondents were satisfied with the police service overall. SEMIFINALIST Valpo Alert Notification System When a registered sex offender committed numerous repeated offenses while babysitting children in an apartment complex, this department determined that more needed to be done to strengthen community involvement and awareness. This proactive alert system notifies community members through telephone calls, s and cellular text messaging that a registered sex offender has moved into their neighborhood. An officer also verifies every six months that the individual is living at the registered address. Officers meet with neighbors to learn if any violations have occurred. A media blitz for the new system was conducted across the city. The department was the first in the state to take such a proactive stance in notifying community members. Since the program was initiated, there have been no reported re-offenses of registered sex offenders in the city.

Director, Office of Investigations, Marcy M. Forman SEMIFINALIST 15 Document and Benefit Fraud Task Forces These specialized task forces build on existing partnerships to bring investigators together from a variety of agencies with expertise in different aspects of document and benefit fraud. The investigators partner with U.S. Attorney s offices to develop a comprehensive approach in targeting criminal organizations behind these schemes, along with the beneficiaries of such fraud. The task forces target the manufacture, sale or use of counterfeit identity documents for immigration fraud or other criminal activity. The other major focus is on the misrepresentation or omission of a material fact on an application to obtain an immigration benefit that one is not entitled to such as U.S. citizenship. To date, 17 DBFTF task forces developed in cities nationwide have initiated 854 investigations that have resulted in 667 indictments, 835 criminal arrests and 493 convictions. Project Leader: Acting Unit Chief Ronald D. Herring Phone: (202) Fax: (202) The Webber Seavey Program is not about the individual pursuit of global recognition, but rather, the collective aspiration of the global policing community towards excellence. It provides a platform for uniting best practices from across the globe, and facilitating the translation and replication of successful localized programs to other territories.
