Highway Patrol – Week 4 – Part 3

Good morning FFFs,
It's dark, cloudy, and chilly here. I didn't really want to get up this morning, but here I am.
Last night I went to a concert with my Grandpa, and my brother, sis-in-law, and two oldest nephews. (Nephew #2 wanted to go to the concert for his birthday. He's 9!!!!!) We had front row seats. As I sat listening to the first song, it felt that it was playing my life right now. I could feel the turmoil of unfinished projects, the stress of what to work on first, the frantic pace of the months as they relentlessly march forward toward the end of the year, but in the mist of it all, shining like a light, was the reminder of peace. A delightful, beautiful strain that spoke of God's goodness and his unfailing help. It was a reminder that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, that there is peace in the midst of the storms when you are in Christ. I think it was just what I needed. The rest of the concert was lovely too.

This week has disappeared very quickly. I did get a little bit written on Wednesday night. Otherwise I worked on this and that. I have music to practice, a story that needs finished, the 40's book of letters by my grandparents needs corrected so I can get it finished. I have a book to review, things to put away, another story that needs worked on, blog posts to write, preparing for a blog tour of His Law Is Love,  and the list goes on. I certainly won't be sitting around wishing I had something to do. ;)

I hope you enjoy this 2nd half of the report about the K9s.

Highway Patrol
Week 4 – Part 3

    Another traffic stop he did was on an RV. It was early fall of last year, and he saw this RV coming down the highway. Now, he knew it was not the time of year most people travel since schools are back in session and most older people don’t want to travel in the colder months. The driver also seemed a bit nervous at the sight of Cpl. Tim because he started driving on the rumble strip. Those were all red flags to Cpl. Tim. After he pulled the RV over and got the driver out, he started talking with him. The RV was rented. The driver said he and some of his buddies were just driving to St. Louis to see the arch. (They were from California.) Cpl. Tim asked where they’d be staying. “Oh, probably Holiday Inn.” Hmm, They have an RV but they are staying in a hotel. Cpl. Tim had already called for backup because he knew from the driver that there were 4-5 other guys in the RV and 2 pit bulls. He successfully detained the driver until another trooper arrived to help. As they were getting the guys out of the RV, two of them ran off into some woods. One came back, the other, a homeless drunk they for some reason had brought along, kept going. He later returned to the highway and hitched a ride back to California where he was picked up by the law there and returned to Missouri. (I don’t know what happened to the pit bulls.) Inside the RV was marijuana. A bunch of marijuana! I don’t know how many trash bags full Cpl. Tim said he had piled on the side of the highway. Once in the evidence room it was packed in 15 or more good sized boxes. It was a huge bust.
    • Observe the occupants – One thing Cpl. Tim said he likes to do is stop cars on rainy, cold, blowing days. He’ll ask the person to step out of the car and then he’ll tell them, “Why don’t you just have a seat in my car, so we can get this done and get you back on the road a little faster.” Usually the idea of getting back on the road faster is enough incentive to comply, as are cold, or rainy days. “It really does make things go faster,” Cpl. Tim said, “because I can ask all the questions I need to right then. I can also observe them and see what their behavior is like. Are they really nervous and fidgety? Do they sweat a lot? Because of Hugo I keep my car cool, so if someone is saying something about how hot he is, then I know something’s going on.”
    Also notice what the person is wearing. Does it match the weather? Does it fit where they say they are going?
    • Listen to what they are telling you – Do they ask a question when you ask them one instead of just answering it? Do they repeat the question? Do they change the subject and start talking about something else? Those are all signs that something is probably going on.

    “Can an officer legally require you to exit your vehicle?” Cpl. Tim asked the class. All but two of us said yes. He looked at the other two and said, “You’re wrong.” In 1977 the Supreme Court ruled that for officer safety a driver can be required to exit their vehicle. So, if you are ever pulled over and the officer, for some reason, requests you to step out of the vehicle, comply.
    Someone asked what happens if Cpl. Tim stops someone and can’t speak their language. That was something I hadn’t thought about before. Cpl. Tim said he does speak some Spanish, enough to communicate what he needs to most of the time. But if the person doesn’t speak Spanish or English, Cpl. Tim can always use a translator. There is a certain number he can call that has certified translators. He’ll set them on speaker phone and through them communicate with the driver. He can also use Hugo if he can’t communicate enough to get permission to search the vehicle.
    “We have to trust our dogs,” Cpl. Tim said. “There have been times when a car gets pulled over and your dog doesn’t alert on the car at all, but thirty miles down the road the same car is stopped again, and this time the other dog alerts on it and drugs are found. While you might think the dog that didn’t alert wasn’t doing his job, it could be a number of things, Perhaps the driver hadn’t turned on the AC or the heat until after your dog had searched. Perhaps the wind and air pressure were different thirty miles away. There have also been times when a dog has alerted on a car, but nothing was found. The drugs had been in there but weren’t now, but the smell still lingers.”
    Dogs don’t alert on money. Some people think that if a person is carrying a large amount of money in their car, the dog is going to alert on it. No, the dogs might alert if the money has been in close contact with the drugs and smells like marijuana, but they aren’t trained to sniff out money.
    When transporting marijuana or any other type of drug some have tried to hide the smell of it by putting it in a coffee can, or putting dryer sheets with it. While that might help keep an officer from smelling it, it doesn’t help with a dog. For example, you walk into your house and sniff. “Oh, we’re having soup for supper,” you say. A dog walks in and sniffs. “Oh, we’re having chicken broth, potatoes, carrots, onions, butter, pepper, seasoned salt, and there are three other spices that I don’t know the names of.”
    Dogs smell each individual scent.
    Cpl. Tim showed many pictures of drug busts he and Hugo have done, and then we were all taken outside to see Hugo.
    It was a chilly autumn night, and several of us hadn’t brought jackets. Sgt. Lueckenhoff took a cloth that smelled like marijuana and tucked it in the back of his truck tailgate. We got to watch as Hugo searched the truck. He found it right away and didn’t want to bother searching the rest of the truck, but Cpl. Tim insisted on it.
    There was a little more talk after Hugo was returned to his beloved patrol car. A few questions were asked, and then we were all dismissed. It was a little after nine when we left this time, but some of the other weeks we were let out early, so it all evens out.
    Next week is our final class; I hope you’ll be back for it.

Highway Patrol – Week 4 – Part 2

Good morning Favorite Friday Fans,
How is your morning? It's a rainy morning here. Not any big storm, just a steady rain. I don't know if it's supposed to rain all day or not. We've had many sunny days, so I can't complain about a rainy one.

I've been doing more "finishing" things this week. I got my November and December short stories up and ready for pre-order. They won't be published until the 1st of November and the 1st of December. And yes, I added them both to Goodreads. (Just look for Heritage of Praise and Unto Him.)
I also made the final corrections for His Law Is Love though it won't be published quiet yet. ;) If you want to get a signed copy directly from me, let me know. If I have to mail it to you, it won't be more than $10. counting shipping. (I may be able to do it a little cheaper depending on what the tax is. I can let you know.)

Anyway, now I'm listening to the audios of Dylan's Story and Stephen. I'm hoping to have them both out before Christmas. Speaking of Christmas, I hope to add another Christmas Collection book to the list this year. This one is titled Christmas Quilts. It's probably nothing like you would think for this title. ;) And I'm about ready to start the work of compiling my monthly stories so they will be available as a collection in paperback, and as a collection in kindle.

I hope you are enjoying these reports from the MO State Highway Patrol Community Alliance. This next part I broke into 2 parts because it was over 2k words. I think you'll enjoy learning about Hugo.

Highway Patrol
Week 4 – Part 2

    When our break was over, Sgt. Lueckenhoff introduced us to our next instructor, Corporal Tim Barrett, a K-9 officer. Corporal Tim has been a law enforcement officer for 15 years. For the last 9 he has worked as a HP trooper. Before that he was a Carthage police officer. Hugo, a five-year-old male German shepherd is Corporal Tim’s partner. We quickly found out that Sgt. Lueckenhoff doesn’t like Hugo very well.
    There are 10 Highway Patrol K-9s state wide. All of them are male German shepherds. The reason they don’t use females is because the males have more stamina for some of the things they need to do. None of the dogs are neutered. The reason they only have German shepherds is because that’s all the Missouri HP has ever had, and they like them.
    All dogs are tried in five things.
    1. Obedience (sit, down, heal, etc.) – “Hugo and I are still working on that,” Corporal Tim admitted with a smile. Even though Hugo has been with Cpl. Tim for several years, he started out with another state trooper who then retired after 2-3 years. (I can’t remember who had Hugo longer.)
    2. Tracking –  Suspects–if the driver has run off into the woods or something like that. Elderly–if someone has wandered away from a nursing home. Children–especially children with special needs. The dogs have to be trained not to jump on the person when they find them. They don’t want Great-Grandma being knocked over by a full grown German shepherd. Cpl. Tim said when Hugo gets very close to the person he is tracking, he’ll sit down and bark. If it’s a fugitive, the guy will most likely start screaming, “Don’t bite me!” (That’s why commands like “bite” or “attack” are taught and given to the dogs in German.”)
    3. Handler Protection – Hugo is very protective of Cpl. Tim, and if anyone tried to take a swing at him, even in fun, Hugo would not be happy! “He’s also very protective of his car,” Cpl. Tim told us. “The very first time I left Hugo at home and went somewhere in the patrol car, Hugo had a fit. When I got out of court, my wife called me to see if I was coming home soon. I told her I was and asked if there was a problem. She said my dog was going crazy. I could hear him barking in the background. When I got back home, I discovered he’d overturned his dog house, flung himself against the sides of the kennel, and barked the entire time the car was gone.” There was a grin on Cpl. Tim’s face. “He still has a fit when I leave in the car and don’t take him with me.”
    4. Apprehension – This was mentioned earlier, but the dogs are trained to sit and not jump on someone they find unless they are giving the command to bite.
    5. Area Search – This includes evidence recovery as well as lost property. If a suspect is running away and tosses a gun, a bag of marijuana, or something else, they can use one of the dogs to search for it. Dogs don’t search for a specific odor when doing this tracking. They simply have to find something that smells different than the grass, rocks, sticks, and such. Something that has a human oder.
    Narcotics Detection – Hugo is certified in sniffing marijuana, cocaine, heroin, meth, and other forms of meth like ecstasy. If Cpl. Tim thinks there might be drugs in a car he’s stopped, he can use Hugo to do a search outside of the car. He will take Hugo around the entire car telling him to search (I’m not certain just what word is used). If Hugo smells any of the drugs, he’ll sit with his nose as close to it as he can get. Once Hugo has alerted on a vehicle, Cpl. Tim has the right to search it even if the driver won’t give permission. The dogs are never used to search people.
    “I don’t like to use Hugo for area searches,” Cpl. Tim admitted, “because Hugo doesn’t like to give things back.”
    Everyone chuckled.
    Dogs are habit driven. They are trained by doing things over and over and over. When searching a vehicle, Cpl. Tim insists that Hugo circle the entire vehicle and check everything. “If not, he’ll just go to the most common place or stop when he’s found something and not keep going.”
    Cpl. Tim said he spends a lot of time watching traffic. You know those state highway patrol vehicles sitting in the median when you’re driving down the highway? Guess what, they aren’t usually looking for speeders. They are looking for things that aren’t “normal.” What is “normal”? It takes time for an officer, police, or state trooper, to know what is normal in their area. Cpl. Tim said it took him about 18 months to get the feel of the area he patrols.
    He gave us some tips:
    • Know your geography – If you stop a car, and the driver says they were just coming back from California, ask how long they were there. “Oh, just a day.” Hmm, who drives from Missouri all the way out to California just for a day? Or, “I’m just coming back from my brother’s in Illinois. I haven’t seen him in six years.” “How long were you there?” “Oh, just a day.” Something doesn’t add up there.
    • Begin to know common reasons for things – Does their reason for travel match what things you see are telling you? One man said he was driving from Arizona to some other eastern state. It was winter, and while still warm in Missouri, Cpl. Tim, who keeps track of the weather in all parts of the country, knew a big snowstorm was supposed to hit the area this man was headed to. “Don’t you have a coat with you?”
    “No,” the man replied. “I’m not going to be there long enough to need one.”
    “It’s supposed to be cold there.”
    “I’ll be fine.” The man had on shorts and a t-shirt. Something just wasn’t adding up right, so Cpl. Tim searched the car. Inside the man’s suitcase were two more pairs of shorts, two t-shirts, and a pair of flip-flops. And marijuana.
    Is there a lack of luggage for someone who is supposedly traveling a long ways? Or too much? If there are any young children in the car, are there any toys or a diaper bag in sight?
    Does the overall look of the vehicle match the reason for travel? If someone says they are heading to a funeral but are driving a U-Haul, that could be a sign something is off.
    One time Cpl. Tim saw a really nice car pass on the highway. It was the kind you would probably get from a rental company. However, on the back of the car was a bumper sticker. Rental cars don’t have bumper stickers. The driver had a scruffy beard and looked like a homeless guy. When Cpl. Tim ran the plates, they came back stolen. After stopping it, he also discovered drugs in the car.

Have you ever seen a dog throw a fit?
Did you think the HP sitting in the median were looking for speeders?
 Do you want a copy of His Law Is Love?

Highway Patrol – Week 4 – Part 1

Hello dear Readers,
How has your week been? Mine has been good. It's been rather fun to not have so much going on. I actually got somethings done that have been waiting for months! Our weather has been a bit strange, but that's nothing unusual here in Missouri. It was warm and humid at the beginning of the week and we had the AC on. Yesterday it only reached a high of 64ยบ and today it's supposed to be in the low 50s. We're supposed to get a frost in the next few days! Maybe then the leaves will start turning. Right now they are still green. I'm ready for fall colors, long sleeves, sweaters, hot drinks, soups, . . . You get the picture.

The other evening I actually worked on writing one of my novels! Since I have all my monthly short stories written, and I was caught up on the HP reports, I got to return to Hymns in the Hills. It was rather fun. But now I have one final short HP report from last night. Last night was our "graduation" dinner. It was quite nice and–well, I'll tell you about it later.

I had to break this report up into 3 parts. It was long! This first part is the first class. And boy, was it something more people need to know about. Feel free to send others to read it. Or tell them about it. The next instructor for that evening will have two parts since it was really long. I hope you enjoy this and learn something! It's kind of scary.

Highway Patrol
Week 4 – Part 1

September 27, 2018
    Arriving at the classroom, we found some of our classmates already there, but most of the rest showed up soon afterwards. One gentleman had a meeting, so he would be late, and another girl thought that class started at 6:30 for some reason.
    Sgt. Lueckenhoff apologized that the crash team wasn’t able to make it and then introduced us to Lieutenant Brad Bearden.
    Lieutenant Bearden has worked in the Internet Crimes unit for many years. He told us that Joplin has the most successful internet crimes teams in the state. They were also the first to really get a unit together to focus on this aspect of crime. Now the Highway Patrol has some Digital Forensic investigators stationed in Jefferson City. Most of what they deal with is child pornography and related crimes.
    If someone is charged as a child predator, they get charged in the federal court, and they can’t get out on bond.
    It is safe to say that 99% of child predators are male. In Lt. Bearden’s 8 years of working in this division, there were only two females who were charged and only one since he left the unit.
    Most people don’t become a child predator overnight. It’s a cycle. It starts with child pornography, then gets more involved as pictures no longer satisfy.
    When Lieutenant Bearden goes to schools, he starts educating the students about what constitutes child pornography because most don’t know. Child pornography is not just pictures of kids without clothes. It includes any person under the age of 18 in the act of any sexual activity. It may be meant as a goofy picture in the school hallway, but it’s serious. “If you have any pictures like that on your phone, your iPad, tablet, or computer, you can be charged with possession of child pornography.” At that point the students usually start pulling out their phones and deleting pictures. Sometimes the teacher or principal asks Lt. Bearden then if he isn’t going to take their phones. “No, this is education. This is not enforcement right now.”
    Right now, in the state of Missouri, a 17-year-old can be charged as an adult.
    If two 15-year-olds take pictures they shouldn’t and send them to each other, each of them could be charged with creating, possessing, and promoting child pornography.
    Lt. Bearden said that one thing he stresses to students and teachers is that if someone sends you a wrong picture, don’t just delete it. Tell someone. The authorities need to know about it as soon as possible so they can stop as many pictures as they can. And whatever you do, never share it on Facebook! Lt. Bearden always asks the students, “Do you know every single friend on every one of your friends’ accounts?” The answer is obviously no. One of those people might be a predator.
    Good rule about online friends: If you don’t know the person, delete them. Or don’t be friends with them to begin with.
    Did you know that 28 thousand people are looking at pornography every second? It makes me cringe to think of it. But, did you know that all child pornography goes to the National Center for Missing Children? It does. All your search engines–google, aol, bing–all have filters to check for child pornography. It also checks emails. Any photo with a certain percentage of skin showing gets checked. If it is what it shouldn’t be, the authorities can follow the trail of where it came from, who had it last, and eventually find the source of the picture. Then comes the knock on the door. The government doesn’t look kindly on people exploiting our children!
    We are in charge of the internet! And if we are in charge of it, we need to keep it clean!
    Lt. Bearden gave us a list of apps to beware of. Most of these are ones that child predators use to chat with children. Some because they don’t have filters, some because, while they will have a record of who talked when and where, they don’t have a record of what was said.
Yik Yak– This is a big one predators use to chat. They’ll “meet” the kids elsewhere and then suggest they chat on this app.
Tinder– It has a red flame on it, and some lady told Lt. Bearden, when he found it on her daughter’s phone, that it was a Red Cross app for giving blood. Hardly!– Don’t go there.
Omegle– One of these last four is a Latvian app. Stay away from it.
Snapchat– I know, you probably never thought this was going to come up, did you? After all, you should be able to share a picture and then it will go away in a certain number of seconds. But does it? Not always. And what if someone takes a screen shot of it?
Yubo (used to be Yellow)–
Hot or Not– This doesn’t even sound like a good app!
Burn Book– What on earth? Yeah, not what it sounds like.
Tango– Just for your information, this is NOT a dance app!
There are also Jailbreak apps that can override a parent’s security on a child’s phone. And we haven’t even mentioned the hidden apps that usually appear as a calculator. Note: There should only be ONE calculator on a device! If you find another one, you know there’s at least one hidden app. Go to the Android or Apple app store and search for “hidden apps.” If any say “update” or “open” you know it is on that device. Why do kids even need their own phone or electronic device? If you say for school, then please note that all the filters used on school iPads and such, don’t work when the student takes the device home. Yeah, that means anything is available.
    Yes, it was a lot to take in and rather sobering.

    We took a break after that and got snacks and visited for a bit.

Have you ever used one of those apps?
Did you learn anything new here?
Are you experiencing fall weather yet?

Highway Patrol – Week 3

This is going to be short. Well, the first part is. I have a party to get back to. :) Have you all joined the Five Fall Favorites party over at Read Another Page? (And all the other lovely blogs.) It's been a busy week with lots and lots of books recommended. Today is the final day to enter the giveaway so don't forget! And tell all your friends and family too.
I haven't done a whole lot this week besides party stuff. I did get my Nov. story sent out to beta-readers. I've read some, taught writing classes, and designed a mock cover for my collection of monthly stories. Tonight we get to babysit my nieces and nephews. They haven't all been over for a normal evening of babysitting for a long time! Last night was the final Highway Patrol class. You'll get a report on that later. Since we covered so much stuff in these classes, several reports are going to have to be broken up. But not this week's. It is a bit long, but not long enough to break into two parts.

Enjoy it!

Highway Patrol
Week 3

September 20, 2018
Dad and I managed to arrive a little earlier than last week and found Sgt. Leuckenhoff, his wife, and three other classmates outside. The sergeant was talking to one of the SWAT men about something. Soon we headed inside to our classroom.
    Once everyone was there, we were divided into two groups. Dad and I went with the first group to the shooting range in the basement after we picked up our two boxes of bullets. There were eight of us in this group, but one of the ladies didn’t want to shoot.
    At the door which led downstairs we had to stop and wait a bit until someone came and unlocked the door. It was a familiar place to me as I had been down there for both the Citizens Police Academy and the Sheriff’s Citizens Academy. We took seats, and Sgt. Lueckenhoff briefly introduced our three instructors. Not only are they Highway Patrol officers, but they are the firearms instructors for the HP. We were given a crash course on handling the guns, and then we were given cases to load with 17 bullets (that’s all that will fit). We all had earplugs and clear glasses to wear. Then four of us went up to shoot first. I was one of the first group.
    It was really nice this time as there were more instructors, so you got one-on-one coaching if you needed it. I did. Our first target was a paper with 12 large black dots. Once I was able to relax some, I hit the middle dot. After I finished my first 17 rounds, the instructor reloaded the case for me. (I had managed to get 15 bullets in the first time, but Dad had to get the last two in. My fingers just aren’t strong enough, I guess.) I shot my first 50 bullets and didn’t do too badly. I was still too tense and anticipating the recoil of the trigger when I pulled it. And, no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t hit anything higher than the middle dots.
    It was interesting to sit at the tables and watch others shoot. There were a couple guys who were really good. I think they might shoot on their own.
    Later I went up again to shoot the second half of my rounds. This time I was with a different instructor and got a new target. This target was an image of a man with a gun. My first shot wasn’t too good. I shot him in the stomach. Then I was shooting all around his gun. The instructor asked if I was aiming for the gun. No. I was just anticipating that slight recoil. He got me to relax a little more and said to hit him center of mass.
    I did. Dead center. After a few more shots in the middle, he said to shoot right between the eyes. That was easier said than done. I got his neck. I got the guy’s ear and the side of his head, but mostly I hit around his mouth and chin. I think I did manage to hit the nose or the eye once. Again my instructor was kind enough to reload for me.
    “I saw you struggling to load those first ones,” he told me.
    By the time my final round was shot, I almost had a blister on my hand, and my arms were rather tired. But it was fun. I’d do it again if I had the chance.

    Sgt. Lueckenhoff came down and, after the final shots were taken, he sent us all outside to see the “bear cat” before it got dark.
    No, a “bear cat” is not some half breed creature from some fantasy book. It’s the SWAT team’s armored vehicle. The small one. There’s another one that is large enough for the men to stand up in which is called a “bear,” but this one they have to sit in. We got to climb up inside it and look around. There are no seatbelts, but when they have 8-14 guys fully dressed with all their gear, they’re packed in that thing. We were also told that Sgt. Lueckenhoff was the best “bear cat” driver the SWAT team has ever had.
    Before we went inside, we got to see and hear a “flash-bang.” It’s exactly what it sounds like. You pull the pin, toss it in the house or room, and it makes a big flash and a loud bang. Sort of like a very loud firecracker. They won’t use them, though, if there are children or elderly people in the house. And they always have to check first before they toss it in just to make sure no one is directly in the way.
    “It works really well on mean dogs,” one of the men said. “After it went off in one house, a large, mean dog ran out of the house as soon as we opened the door, and we never saw him again.”
    We all headed back inside and settled in our classroom while the second half of the class went to the shooting range. (They were supposed to already be down there, but no one had caught that part of their instructions.)
    Four members of the Highway Patrol SWAT team talked to us. There are twenty men–entry team and snipers–on each HP SWAT team, though I can’t remember how many teams the Missouri HP has. Also on the team are a few negotiators and three paramedics. The team trains two days a months and one full week in the fall. They go shoot one day a month.
    Corporal Mike Adams, who is one of the negotiators as well as a road officer, talked a little about what negotiators do. Basically they try to talk the person into giving up. The negotiators will often fill a whiteboard, and more sometimes, with information they learn while talking to the wanted person. They will analyze everything. If there are certain words that set him off, they won’t use them as they are trying to calm him down so he’ll give up. Sometimes everything goes quickly, and other times it takes days.
    Corporal David Brown is a sniper and used to be in the Marines. He talked a bit about what snipers do. Often they will go in hours or a day or so before the entry team. They give a lot of information to the entry team about who they see go in or come out. If the entry team had been informed that there were no children at the house, but a sniper sees some children enter, he’ll let the other know so they can change their plans.
    One of the SWAT vests was passed around. That thing is heavy. I can’t imagine having to wear it for hours. We were told that the plates in the vest have to be replaced every five years. They also have a first-aid pouch on the right side of the vest. If a team member gets hurt, they will use that person’s first-aid kit to treat them so that their own kit stays intact for themselves.
    Since the SWAT team isn’t part of a certain county, they help out in places where they don’t have a SWAT team. But they never go out without being asked. Sometimes they might go out a dozen times in one year, the next year it might only be eight.
    There was some talk about different things, but then we were allowed to look at the stuff if we wanted. Some did, others just talked for a bit. We left a little before nine.
Come back next week as we learn about Crash Scenes, Internet crimes, and the K-9 Unit.

Have you ever shot a gun before?
Have you come to the party?
Are you enjoying these reports?
