Fallen Officer’s Memory Kept Alive Through Mark Dunakin Memorial Award for Extraordinary Achievement

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Sergeant Orrlando Mayes with the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department is the 2017 recipient of the Mark Dunakin Memorial Award for Extraordinary Achievement, the Union Institute & University announced today.

The graduation was held Sunday, August 13 where the award was presented.

The 25-year law enforcement veteran is humbled by the honor. "I am grateful to be considered in the same league as Sergeant Dunakin," said Mayes.

The Mark Dunakin Memorial Award was established to honor the memory of Sergeant Dunakin, a UI&U student who tragically lost his life on March 21, 2009, at the age of 40, when he and three other Oakland police officers were killed in the line of duty.

The award is presented to a new graduate of the Union Institute & University Sacramento Academic Center Criminal Justice Management program who serves in law enforcement and who emulates Sergeant Dunakin's commitment to community service, academic success, and enthusiasm for Union's Criminal Justice Management program.

The faculty noted Mayes was a perfect match for the criteria, particularly in his thoughtful approach and his desire to go above and beyond in everything he does.

The father of four decided early that he wanted to be in the law enforcement profession and that he wanted a college degree. "I was in the eighth-grade when I set a goal of completing my college degree. That day is here and I credit my family, especially my grandmother, for supporting me and my dreams."

Mayes is grateful for his career. "Helping people is my calling. I get more from them than they get from me. Every time I help someone, I walk away with perspective and empathy toward others."

Sergeant Mayes currently serves as the Academy Director for the Sacramento Sheriff's Academy. Prior to being promoted to sergeant, he spent 14 years on the SWAT team as the Assistant Team Leader. As sergeant, he remains active as an auxiliary SWAT team member.

In 2010, Sergeant Mayes was involved in one of California's longest hostage standoffs, during which he participated with his team to help save the life of a 16-month-old child after 56 hours of intense negotiation. He was recently reunited with the child, who has said he wants to be a police officer just like Mayes. And, the child's uncle, who was deployed overseas with the military at the time of the standoff, was so inspired by the officers' work that he is now a deputy with the Sacramento County Sherriff's Department.

"My goal of earning my college degree is a dream come true," said Mayes. "I was born and raised in Oakland. I didn't know Sergeant Dunakin, but I attended his funeral," said Mayes. "I will cherish this honor."

The other recipients of the Union Institute & University Mark Dunakin Memorial Award for Extraordinary Achievement are:
* 2011 - Isabel Resendez
* 2013 - Frederick Henry Bobbitt Jr. and Tony Silva
* 2015 - Ray Framstad
* 2016 - Sergio Lepe.

The MAGLITE ML150LR LED Flashlight Rechargeable System – the Brightest, Farthest-Reaching Light We’ve Ever Introduced

ONTARIO, Calif. -- Mag Instrument, Inc., the world leader in flashlight technology, will introduce its most powerful flashlight yet -- the rechargeable ML150 LR(TM). Despite its mid-size (C-cell format) dimensions, the ML150LR(TM) generates a stunning 1,000 lumens* and achieves a beam distance of over a quarter-mile. And thanks to multiple power settings and critical efficiency innovations, it can run for up to 75 hours on a single charge of its state-of-the-art Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery.

In achieving this performance milestone, Mag Instrument's research and development team started by tackling a long-known problem: An LED light engine must be kept cool to run efficiently, and poor heat dissipation is a serious performance-limiting factor with high-output LEDs. The solution, newly patented by Mag Instrument, is an integral heat-sinking technology that quickly drains heat from the LED.

According to Tony Maglica, president and founder of Mag Instrument, "The new MAGLITE(R) ML150LR(TM) is the first flashlight to embody this new heat sink technology, and the performance results are spectacular - a real breakthrough. But still, let's not forget optics. While many flashlight brands tout their high lumen outputs, that doesn't get you very far unless you also have the superior beam-forming optics needed to shape all that light into a versatile, focusable and effective beam that puts the light where the user needs it. A flashlight should be a powerful, manageable, durable, dependable portable light source that is long-lasting. This new flashlight checks all the boxes magnificently."

Other standard features of the ML150LR(TM) include:
• A versatile charging cradle that can be powered from a standard wall outlet or the 12-volt DC electrical system in a vehicle.
• Multiple power settings to control light output and battery burn rate.
• IPX4 water resistance.
• An advanced user interface with five available functions, custom-configurable to suit the individual user's preferences.

Check out the legendary MAGLITE(R) flashlights, known for their unsurpassed quality, performance and durability, including the ML150LR(TM). Learn more at: http://maglite.com/.

New Gun Technology Combines Safety with Unmatched Accessibility

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- Safety first is not just a tagline, it's the name of a new start-up company, Safety First Arms, LLC, that's created a new gun technology designed to prevent unnecessary tragedy. Even with only a prototype, the company has already secured orders from two gun shops for more than $1 million for its Smart 2 pistol.

Safety First Arms has a 9mm pistol and AR-15 type rifle that prevent unauthorized use and are resistant to both tampering and theft. The pistol can be kept at bedside and the AR can be kept by the door or in a closet without risk of getting stolen or used by child, teen or perpetrator.

Unlike so-called "smart guns" that are based on unreliable fingerprint readers or RFID companion rings or watches, Safety First Arms has integrated a simple, electronic PIN code lock into its guns, just like those used for ATM machines and hotel room safes.

"The problem with these other designs is that they just aren't practical," Brian Weinberg, co-founder and engineer of Safety First Arms, says. "Fingerprint readers have unacceptable reliability issues in the real world where people where gloves or their hands are wet, moisturized or dirty. And, RFID rings and watches are not practical for most people and do nothing to protect against tampering and theft."

The Smart 2 unlocks in less than a second after the owner grips the gun and enters their three to five-digit PIN. To relock, the owner just releases the grip and grip safety; this ensures that the gun is always locked when not in use and that if the gun is wrestled away from the owner or a police officer it locks automatically. To protect against unauthorized handling and theft, both guns are equipped with Theft Guard(TM) which sounds a piercing alarm, triggered by motion and keypad tampering.

Bob Allan, inventor and founder of Safety First Arms, says that "only Safety First Arms' technology or a gun safe can prevent both unauthorized handling and firing by anyone from children and troubled teens to criminals."

The Opa-Locka Florida police chase that resulted in a head-on collision with multiple fatalities on I-95 this past April has prompted the filings of two alleged wrongful death lawsuits by the families' attorney Edward R. Blumberg.

The families of victims Albertson Almase and sister Kristina have filed multiple count lawsuits in the Miami-Dade County Circuit Court naming - among others - the Opa-Locka Florida police officer, Sergio Perez, involved in the fatal chase.

At the time of the crash, Albertson Almase was in the United States Navy and his sister Kristina Almase was a registered nurse. Besides their surviving parents, Kristina Almase leaves behind a four year old daughter.

"Although we cannot bring Albertson and Kristina back, these lawsuits will provide some closure for the families," according to the families' attorney Edward R. Blumberg of Miami.

"These lawsuits highlight the dangers to the public of high speed police chases on busy Miami-Dade County roadways."

Author: ADF Solutions Inc.
Dateline: Bethesda, Maryland (BETHESDA, Md.)  | Mon, 29 Oct 2012

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “ADF Solutions announced today that Triage-Examiner, a forensic triage tool, was utilized by all five of the East Midlands police forces participating in the highly successful e-Forensics pilot program conducted by the National Policing Improvement Agency (NPIA) in the U.K. The aim of the six-month pilot was to speed up the process for all forces by providing one standardized approach to the examination of computers and mobile devices.”



A R T I C L E:

ADF Solutions announced today that Triage-Examiner(R), a forensic triage tool, was utilized by all five of the East Midlands police forces participating in the highly successful e-Forensics pilot program conducted by the National Policing Improvement Agency (NPIA) in the U.K. The aim of the six-month pilot was to speed up the process for all forces by providing one standardized approach to the examination of computers and mobile devices.

The results have shown the five police forces achieving a 90 percent increase in the number of computer devices examined, helping officers bring more offenders to justice more quickly and significantly reducing the computer forensic backlog.

Triage-Examiner is widely deployed in the U.K. by most law enforcement agencies. It is used by field investigators and forensic examiners within high-tech crime units, public protection units, sex offender management units, child abuse units and others. The tool has had a significant impact on reducing digital forensic backlogs and solving child abuse, sex offender and fraud cases.

"By equipping investigators with automated triage tools, agencies can access digital evidence more quickly, reduce forensic backlogs and address the constantly evolving technology landscape," said Harry Parsonage, forensic triage expert at ADF Solutions. "The results of the NPIA e-Forensics pilot reflect the success we have achieved at all our client installations in the U.K. and worldwide."

"ADF is pleased to have made such a positive contribution to this successful NPIA program," said J.J. Wallia, co-founder and CEO of ADF Solutions. "We have consistently outperformed all other forensic triage tools in head-to-head evaluations."
