  • Anyone know of LEN assistance for Katrina?

    Is there a national hotline to offer law enforcement help in Louisiana/Mississippi area? I am a sworn officer and have some vacation time to burn before my anniversary date and I end up losing it.

    Honestly, I'm surprised Homeland Security didn't set up something like that after 9/11. What a great idea. A central clearing house for officers to volunteer time and the airlines could give up their empty seats since we good tax paying Americans did bail them out.

          Kevin.... re donating time

          Kev, hi
          contact FOPDC. They are networking people going down and families of NO officers coming up or wherever.
          [email protected] or go to their website
          www.fop.org (I think)
          Ideas such as the airlines and other are awesome and should be passed along

            From NLEOMF...

            If you're a law enforcement officer and you want to help in the areas affected by Katrina, read this message of caution from the Department of Homeland Security:

            The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) strongly discourages "self-dispatching" of assets, as this practice endangers responders and threatens overall operational control.

            In order to ensure a coordinated national response to Hurricane Katrina, DHS is asking that the nation's law enforcement, fire and emergency response communities help us by working through their State Emergency Management Director or state-designated contact for the Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC). If you wish to help and have not already made such contact, please register your response assets and resources with your state's official interstate mutual aid program.

            Through EMAC, a disaster-impacted state can request and receive assistance from other member states quickly and efficiently, resolving issues of liability and reimbursement. This is paramount to ensure that our first responders are insulated from unforeseen accidents, injuries and legal actions.

            For more information about EMAC: www.emcweb.org

I don't have the email now as I am at work but they were looking for sworn officers to help protect utility workers so they could get power restored. the contract with the company was until 1 oct at $400.00 per day. The point of contact and contact number was in that email. I will post it when I get home tonight for those interested.

                      Last september, I attended yet another of Dr. Fisher's workshops for professionals in the field. He's a psychiatrist from Boston and the National Empowerment Center at www.power2u.org.

                      At that time he was helping to spearhead support for the grieving flooded-out citizens of the gulf coast areas. I'm not sure what his 'acronym' was, but I'm sure that contact with the above listed website would provide info in regards to any further needs that may still be in the areas of emotional/spiritual/psychological wellness of the victims...gopher
