"That Maglite saved my life," said Considine. "I am looking forward to being at the opening of the Museum and I thank Maglite for making that happen."

The MAGLITE(R) brand has a strong connection with law enforcement who was the earliest large scale adopters of MAGLITE(R) flashlights which are known for their quality and toughness.

"Our law enforcement officers risk their lives every day to keep us safe," said Anthony Maglica. "This museum is a worthy addition to the monuments and museums in Washington D.C. to show visitors just how difficult and dangerous a job these individuals do for all of us every day."

First Annual Regional Missing Children Awareness Day – Saturday, August 4, 2018

SPRINGFIELD, Va. -- On Saturday, August 4, 2018, all around the Washington D.C. metropolitan region, local law enforcement will gather along with Not a Runaway, NCMEC, families of other missing children and related vendors and sponsors in a collaborative effort to host the first region-wide Jholie Moussa REMEMBER... Missing Children's Awareness Event.

Named after 16-year old Jholie Moussa who went missing earlier this year and was found murdered 2 weeks later, this special day will serve as an annual reminder to renew regional efforts in reuniting missing children with their families, honor those who are still missing and make child safety a top priority.

Not a Runaway, Inc., (NAR) a non-profit organization dedicated to the recovery of missing children is hosting this collaboration with Fairfax County Police, Fairfax County Sheriff's Office, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, Alexandria County Police, Prince William County Police and Metropolitan Police to present this First Annual Missing Children's Awareness event.

The various law enforcement jurisdictions represented will be actively speaking with family members, the sheriff's office will be providing Child ID kits and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children will be providing valuable information on child safety. In addition, numerous community organizations will be present to showcase the region's available resources.

This free community event will take place on Saturday, August 4, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Community Room at Springfield Town Center in Springfield, Va.

We welcome all to attend; parents and guardians are especially encouraged to bring their teenage children and hear from panelists that have been directly affected by the devastating atrocity of abductions while also participating in hands-on demonstrations. The must-attend family event will also host an AMBER Alert community forum.

"With thousands of missing children cases reported to police last year within just our region alone, it is vitally important that we talk to and educate our children about safety and awareness without unduly frightening them. Keeping that dialogue going is even more critical and key to preventing the exploitation and disappearance of youth," said Veronica Eyenga, Director at Not a Runaway, Inc.

The Jholie Moussa REMEMBER... Missing Children's Awareness Event will be divided into 2 sessions with one serving as a community forum that will address every question the community has on the AMBER Alert and how it works, while the second session will be an expo providing the rich resources of the law enforcement community, as well as offering practical safety tips and resources for families in crisis and prevention tools.

About Not a Runaway, Inc.:

Not a Runaway, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to help in the promotion, information dissemination and recovery of missing children that have been specifically labeled as "runaways" by fostering a Triangle of Trust among law enforcement, community and a missing child's family.

Commitment to Excellence: Union Institute & University salutes law enforcement professionals nationwide during National Police Week

CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Union Institute & University is proud to salute law enforcement professionals nationwide during National Police Week, May 13 - 19, 2018 and honored to celebrate its commitment to educating the law enforcement community with a rigorous and research based Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice Management.

"Union is committed to educating the law enforcement profession. The UI&U Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice Management is an innovative program that was created by and for law enforcement professionals," said Paul Brugman, CJM Chair. "The curriculum provides real world application. We employ experts in the law enforcement field as instructors. I think the UI&U commitment is evident in the over 6,300* law enforcement officers nationwide who chose Union for their Criminal Justice Management degree."

The stringent curriculum requires law enforcement students to interpret and analyze current issues in the field, apply contemporary techniques within a justice organization, critique policy and service delivery, and apply ethical theories in a contemporary environment.

CJM alumni (2002) and Master of Arts History & Culture student Jason Bassett, a California police lieutenant, found UI&U's commitment to educating the law enforcement community to be exactly what he was looking for in a program.

"Union Institute and University supports law enforcement by offering distance learning degree programs in diverse fields making it possible to complete educational goals while working full time. This may enhance promotion opportunities or lead to jobs in other fields upon retirement," said Bassett. "I liked the format and way that the classes were structured. I had not been in a formal academic setting for a long time. In about five years, I plan to teach at the community college level and I chose Union when I started searching for a master's program. Distance learning was going to be my only option, so I chose Union based on my positive previous experience and the fact that a program in History and Culture was offered."

Sgt. Charlie Johnson, Jr. (2017 CJM alumni) an officer in the Dade County area, credits his Union degree for expanding his career choices.

"This degree has helped me close a chapter in my life that had been opened for 22 years. It has expanded my professional growth by opening doors that were previously inaccessible. In my agency promotion above the rank of captain requires a four-year degree. I know I am qualified if I choose to move up the ranks."

CJM (2013) and Master of Science in Organizational Leadership (MSOL) (2015) alumna Elena Moton, an officer in the Cincinnati area, credits her degrees from Union for her career trajectory.

"I was a sergeant when I started at Union and now I am a lieutenant. My study habits from Union helped me to study for the lieutenant exam. Going to college is an enlightening experience. The process requires you to open your eyes, to think and analyze. I am now aspiring to be a captain and an assistant chief. As a police officer who works in the community, I find that people expect you to have a college degree. A college degree opens doors."

After completion of the Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice Management law enforcement professionals can choose to enter the Master of Science in Organizational Leadership (MSOL) degree to further the career climb. "The MSOL is a perfect fit for the professional who wants to move up in ranks," said Brugman. "The program is designed to provide solutions to complex issues faced by today's professional."

Union pioneered higher education options for the working adult. The CJM program provides a flexible online delivery that allows the law enforcement professional to work fulltime. The program also connects the student to site coordinators who provide personal attention not available at other universities.

Many law enforcement professionals are veterans. The Union in Veterans program assists veterans in completing his or her degree with scholarships and a living stipend.

Union is recognized as a Military Friendly School and is one of only eight schools that form the Fraternal Order of Police University.

Retired Las Vegas 911 Dispatcher Turns Successful Realtor and Pays it Forward in K-9 Community

HENDERSON, Nev. -- The Bentley Realty Group is proud to make the North Las Vegas Police Department's (NLVPD) K-9 unit its community partner. It's pledged to donate $100 from every real estate transaction that it closes. In October, it started out by donating $2,800 to account for all the deals made prior to the partnership.

After Erika Bentley retired from being a 911 dispatcher she launched a new career in 2016 - real estate. She and her partner, John Kelley, decided to give back to the community when her real estate business started to take off. In 2017, alone, Bentley did $10 million in sales and within 16 months she was named one of the top 10 agents in the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices franchise for the state of Nevada.

"That's a really impressive number for someone just starting out," Kelley says. "She picked it up quickly and is just great at what she does."

Bentley's experience working in the community helped her to develop relationships with groups like the police and fire departments. As a result, she has developed a niche in the real estate market and does a great deal of business with these entities.

So, when the time came for her to give back, she decided a partnership with the NLVPD would align well with her business.

"It's also one of the smallest in the area, so our support has been welcomed," Kelley says.

Sgt. Scott Salkoff of the NLVPD said that when Erika reached out to them they were thrilled. "The donation will be used to benefit the overall health, safety and training of our police dogs and will go towards items for eye and hearing protection as well as medical costs. Erika's generous donation will go a long way to help keep our canine partners comfortable and safe."

So, what's in store for 2018?

"We're planning to add more staff and will continue to find houses that people can call home," Kelley says. "We're working to build the best Las Vegas real estate team out there while giving back to the community we care about."
