Bexar County sheriff works to prevent jail suicides
Star-Telegram
For Bexar County Sheriff Susan Pamerleau, mental illness is personal. She learned sensitivity for mental illness from him and from a brother who was bipolar, long before there was a name for the condition. As an adult, she endured emotional and physical abuse from a husband who committed suicide the day she finally left him in 1978.

So when recent data showed the Bexar jail had the highest number of suicides in the state, Pamerleau was taken aback. While it's acknowledged that in previous years, the jail had difficulty handling inmates with mental illness concerns, Pamerleau's administration has made numerous changes to help improve the situation.

Detectives did it by secretly using one of the government's most powerful phone surveillance tools — capable of intercepting data from hundreds of people's cellphones at a time — to track the phone, and with it their suspect, to the doorway of a public housing complex.

7 reasons why electronic citations are better than paper
PoliceOne.com
Traffic citations are seldom anyone's favorite thing. Most cops would rather be doing something else, and the violators hate them even more. Electronically generated citations make the task a bit more palatable on both sides of the transaction, and bring even more benefits. The eCitation Coalition is trying to beat the drum so that more state and local agencies embrace this technology.
