Senior Lead Officer Updates
In January 2012, Select Patrol begin theconversion from a paper-based reportingsystem to an online format, which will notonly eliminate paper daily activity reportsbut also make our information immediately accessible toour members. Our software provider is Silvertrac Real TimeReporting of Irvine. Silvertrac is a strategic alliance partnerof our trade association, CALSAGA.Realtime reporting is a tool which is quickly becoming theindustry standard. The software essentially combines severalof the technologies we have put into service over the pastfew years, such as image transmission and patrol documen-tation. Silvertrac also provides the enhanced capabilities ofincident tracking. Contacts with people and events can beeasily recalled from the security officer’s Android device.Most of all, our members can look online to see EPSA officers’activities without having to wait for a written summary. Whenthe conversion process is completed in late March, I will pro-vide the easy steps to access the information you want.Your guard,Darin

Rampart SLO Lou Ford praised what is known asConstitutional Policing, which promotes a transparentpartnership between the police and the community thathas proven successful in lowering crime rates.
Residential burglaries are up in Angelino Heights, withmost crimes occurring between 7:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m.Often the criminal enters through an unlocked window,unlocked sliding glass door or unlocked garage door.Locking all doors and windows when you leave the houseshould be your rule. Keep records of the serial numbersof your electronic and computer equipment in a safeplace. An easy way to do this is towrite the serial number on theinvoice.
LAPD does not want you to con-front a suspect, but if you seeanything suspicious, phone 911.One recent Angelino Heights sus-pect was seen and ran off; he wascaught later.
The yearly Rampart Community-Police SLO Summit took place at St. Anne’s ConferenceCenter. In addition to reports from the captains, the Counter-Terrorism Unit’sCraig Adams and Detective Mario Mota ofthe Burglary and Scam Artist Crimes unit each gave veryinformative talks.
