  • New Orleans ?

    I am hearing reports that officers lost their lives in the hurricane and the violence afterwards; is this true?

    RIP to any if this is true

    There are likely emergency service fatalities, both on duty and off duty, including reports of some from violence, rescues, etc. We'll report on it as it becomes legitimate sources, which could be days, or longer.

        F.O.P. to Send Relief to Officers in New Orleans
        Chuck Canterbury, National President of the Fraternal Order of Police, announced
        today that the F.O.P. would be coordinating with Louisiana law enforcement officials
        to provide volunteer officers to the New Orleans area in relief of their brother and
        sister officers, who have been working ceaselessly since Hurricane Katrina struck
        the Gulf coast last week.

        ?All of us have seen the pictures of devastation along the Gulf Coast, and our
        hearts and prayers go out to those families--especially to the people of New
        Orleans, which so recently hosted our National Biennial Conference,? Canterbury
        said. ?Like all Americans, we want to help, and we plan to do so by getting
        additional officers down to the affected areas.?

        In response to a request by Greg Champagne, Sheriff of St. Charles Parish, as well
        as F.O.P. National Secretary and active St. Charles Parish Deputy Sheriff Patrick
        Yoes, the F.O.P. will help to direct law enforcement officers willing to volunteer
        their time in New Orleans in order to assist the officers there. St. Charles Parish
        will serve as a staging area for these volunteer officers, and their deployment will
        be coordinated by law enforcement leaders in the affected areas.

        ?The law enforcement officers in New Orleans and other areas started working when
        Hurricane Katrina was still out in the Gulf of Mexico,? Canterbury said. ?They
        helped to evacuate the citizens before landfall, have been working to find and
        rescue those left or trapped in the storm?s aftermath, and now are turning their
        attention to restoring order to the city so recovery can begin in earnest.?

        Working with Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN), Speaker of the House J.
        Dennis Hastert (R-IL), and Terrance W. Gainer, F.O.P. member and the Chief of the
        U.S. Capitol Police (USCP), a contingent of USCP officers will be among those
        dispatched to St. Charles Parish in the next few days.

        ?We are grateful to the Fraternal Order of Police for organizing this critical
        effort to help enhance the security, safety and recovery of the victims of Hurricane
        Katrina,? Senator Frist said. ?We are proud to dispatch our Capitol Police to
        participate.?

        In addition, the District of Columbia Jerrard F. Young Memorial F.O.P. Lodge #1, has
        dispatched its mobile kitchen unit to the area to help get food and water to those
        who need it.

        ?I am proud of the officers in all the affected areas. An incident of this
        magnitude means that they are going without sleep and are unable to be with their
        own families as they strive to save the lives of others,? Canterbury said. ?When a
        citizen calls for help, an officer will respond. Our officers have called for help
        now, and we will not let them down.?

        Canterbury stated that law enforcement agencies wanting to send additional officers
        to help should contact the St. Charles Parish Sheriff?s Office directly.

        The Fraternal Order of Police is the largest law enforcement labor organization in
        the United States, with more than 321,000 members.

        If any cops affected by the hurricane need to house their families, The West Jordan
        lodge in Utah will house as many cop's families for whatever period of time is
        needed.

        Same goes for Connecticut. If any cops affected by the hurricane need to house their
        families, The New Haven County Lodge in Connecticut will house as many cop's
        families for whatever period of time is needed.

            HAM RADIO COMMUNICATIONS WORKED ON 911- try for New Orleans

            Here is the September 2 posting from DART. DART's postings will allow you
            to quarterback directly with officers down there as DART appears to have
            this chain of communication in place for info to be passed on.
            Best
            Carrie

            911, how I aided in keeping our PD out of the streets was having known
            someone who escaped TOWER 2, he gave his wife details who passed them to
            me that way we were actually ahead of news coming in as so much
            communication was lost due to the travesty.

            As it turned out my friend's husband was also a ham radio operator. The
            media and government overlooked their role in aiding with 911
            communication but it is a definite to communicate with ham radio operators
            and provide their details to officers/departments down there.

            Ham Radio operators have the experience of this disaster under their belt and a network in place. But you need to start with one person well connected otherwise communication will be disastrous.

            Also on 911- both in DC and NY, Verizon seemed to have been the network
            that worked. Officers should consider borrowing a cell from that provider
            to take along as a back up phone as cell service is spotty.

            Let me know if someone wants me to ask my friend if he/can he assist with getting ham radio communications going or if he can make recommendations
