Officers complete advanced training
LEXINGTON – Twenty-two officers from 10 agencies completed advanced emergency vehicle operations training Wednesday at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington. Law enforcement officers from around the state were able to put their skills to the test at Mid-Ohio’s premier 2.4-mile, 15-turn road race course.Using law enforcement casino training funds, Ohio Department of Public Safety and the Ohio State Highway Patrol Emergency Vehicle Operations Instructors, along with veteran race car drivers, designed the training to heighten the skill level of officers around the state to operate a patrol vehicle in the most efficient and safest manner possible. The six-hour training incorporated both classroom instruction and practical exercises.“The leading cause of on-duty deaths of law enforcement officers nationally is automobile-related traffic crashes,” said Director John Born, Ohio Department of Public Safety. Driving skills are perishable. This advanced training provides officers from across Ohio the opportunity to improve their skills.Before these casino law enforcement training funds were available, it was the responsibility of the individual agencies to incur the cost of sending officers to advanced training opportuni-ties like this.Allen County Sheriff’s Office participants included William Dickerson and Andre McConnahea.

Boston mourns two firefighters killed in blaze
DENISE LAVOIEAssociated Press
BOSTON — One was a fitness enthusiast who helped the wounded after the Boston Marathon bombings and planned to run the race himself this year. The other was a father of three young children who had firefighting in his blood.The smoke from a wind-whipped fire had dissipated Thursday, but a palpable sad-ness hung over the city as tributes poured in for Michael Kennedy and Edward Walsh, the two firefighters who died after becoming trapped in a basement in a brownstone apartment building.The cause of Wednesday’s fire, which also sent more than a dozen other firefighters and several police officers to hos-pitals, was unknown. Steve MacDonald, a fire department spokesman, said a conclusion could be months away.Outside Engine 33/Ladder 15, the station where Walsh and Kennedy worked, people stopped to pay their respects, some crying, others praying. Flowers were draped on the fire alarm outside the brick building and piles of bouquets accumulated.Firefighters continued their work.“Life goes on,” Dennis Costin said as alarms went off at the station. “It’s all we can do.”Kennedy, 33, joined the U.S. Marine Corps in 2001 and was on active duty for six years, including a deployment to Iraq, before joining the fire department in 2007.In April, he was among the first responders to the twin bombings at the Boston Marathon finish line, just a few blocks from the station.“He was devastated by it. He told us about helping to hold someone together, someone with bad injuries,” said Shelley White, the general manager of Personalized Fitness, a health and wellness center where Kennedy also worked as a coach in the CrossFit Together program.Kennedy wrote an essay to earn a spot in the marathon this year and had been training with other firefighters planning to run in the April 21 race, said Gov. Deval Patrick, who was among those who stopped by the station Thursday.Walsh, whose three chil-dren are all younger than 10, was a devoted family man who was physically imposing yet reserved, friends said.“He wasn’t one of these rah-rah guys, but he just had a presence about him,” said John Tobin, a Northeastern University administrator who lives a few streets from Walsh’s family in the city’s West Roxbury neighborhood.
