Operation ID
Operation Identification (Operation ID) is a nationally recognized burglary prevention program in which citizens make an inventory of their property and permanently mark their valuables with an identification number, preferably a Texas Driver’s License or ID number. This program has existed for over 30 years. In communities where it has been properly implemented, Operation Identification has shown dramatic results in its ability to reduce burglaries. There are three important steps required to participate in the Operation ID program.

1) Create a list of your property and important identifying characteristics.
2) Property is marked with an engraver using your state issued driver’s license number.
3) Operation ID decals are place on your doors and windows ONLY AFTER you have created an inventory and marked your property.

This program is designed to:
• Discourage the activities of burglars and thieves by marking your possessions and placing decals on your windows.
• Aid in the return of lost or stolen property to the owner.
• Discourage burglars from fencing stolen property.
• Assist in apprehending and convicting criminals caught with marked property.

Procedures
1) Prepare an inventory listing of all of your valuable property, including serial numbers, brand, make, model number, purchase price, and location of engraving. Inventory form is provided by the Cibolo Police Department. Keep this information in a safe place – preferably both online and hard copy.
2) Mark the property with the engraver on a permanent, non-removable part, in a place that can be seen without dismantling the object. Mark the letters “TXDL” and your Texas driver’s license or ID number on the object. Example: TX-B1234567 Avoid using your social security number.
3) Once you have completed the above you will be issued a decal.
4) Place your operation ID decal in a prominent place on your front door or a window.
5) Photograph or videotape your property. This and your inventory could help insurance claims after a burglary, fire, or flood.
5) As you acquire new property be sure to mark it and update your inventory list.

Additional Information
If you relinquish the property to another after marking it with your number, do not remove your number. The new owner should add their number next to yours.

An alternative to recording property information on a paper is to use the online resource of www.leadsonline.com. This website is an online investigative system used by law enforcement to recover stolen property and solve crimes. Leadsonline provides a free Citizen Property Inventory System. Citizens can use this system to record property information. You can log your property at - www.reportit.leadsonline.com.

Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide on the first Tuesday in August (Texas celebrates on the first Tuesday in October). Neighborhoods host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and various other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and much, much more.

 


C.R.A.S.E. - Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events


Law enforcement officers and agencies are frequently requested by schools, businesses, and community members for direction and presentations on what they should do if confronted with an active shooter event. The Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) course, designed and built on the Avoid, Deny, Defend (ADD) strategy developed by ALERRT in 2004, provides strategies, guidance and a proven plan for surviving an active shooter event. Topics include the history and prevalence of active shooter events, civilian response options, medical issues, and considerations for conducting drills.

Next event: January 11, 2018
Next event: May 3, 2018
Classes are also available at the request of your school, business, church, or organization.

Project Lifesaver
Project Lifesaver is a community based, public safety, non-profit organization that provides law enforcement, fire/rescue, and caregivers with a program designed to protect, and when necessary, quickly locate individuals with cognitive disorders who are prone to the life threatening behavior of wandering. The program is structured in a way that strategically combines state of the art locating technologies, innovative search and rescue methods, and community policing courses that educate first responders about cognitive conditions. The search times for certified Project Lifesaver agencies have been reduced from hours, potentially days, down to minutes. Recovery times for Project Lifesaver agencies average 30 minutes, which is 95% less time than standard operations without Project Lifesaver.

The method relies on proven radio technology and specially trained search and rescue teams. Citizens enrolled in Project Lifesaver wear a small transmitter on the wrist or ankle that emits and individual frequency signal. If an enrolled client goes missing, the caregiver notifies their local Project Lifesaver agency, and a trained emergency team responds to the wanderer's area. The first responders will then use the client's individualized frequency to locate the position of the individual. The knowledge given from the community policing courses is best applied in this situation because the first responders will know how to best approach the client once found, and allow them to be brought back to safety.

We hope to enroll our first clients in Summer 2018.

 Project Childsafe

Project ChildSafe is the largest, most comprehensive firearm safety education program in the U.S. It was developed by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the trade association for the firearms industry, and is committed to promoting genuine firearm safety through the distribution of safety education messages and free firearm Safety Kits. The kits include a cable-style gun-locking device and a brochure (also available in Spanish) that discusses safe handling and secure storage guidelines to help deter access by unauthorized individuals.

Project ChildSafe is a real firearm safety solution that helps make communities safer. Since 1999, more than 15,000 law enforcement agencies have partnered with the program to distribute more than 37 million firearm safety kits to gun owners in all 50 states and five U.S. territories. Through vital partnerships with elected officials, community leaders, state agencies, businesses, the firearms industry and other stakeholders, Project ChildSafe has helped raise awareness about the safe and responsible ownership of firearms and the importance of storing firearms securely when not in use to help prevent accidents, theft and misuse.

Among Project ChildSafe’s many firearm safety resources are our infographic and fact sheet. Many other are available in the Safety Resources section.
