I One of his plans is, if elected, to get some of his Deputies trained in Bomb detection and removal.  I couldn't believe that anyone would be dumb enough to waste the training time or the expense for the equipment needed to do this as we have those who are already trained and equiped on the Fort to assist us when needed.

I could be wrong in this statement and maybe JB can correct me ifso. I believe FLW EOD will only respond under two conditions; 1 the device is military ordinance or 2 if the civilian EOD can not respond for one reason or another and requests for FLW EOD to respond in there place. I believe MSHP has a bomb team possibly and if not I know that the FBI has one that can be contacted. JB please correct this if I am wrong.

From KY3
WAYNESVILLE, Mo. -- A judge issued a warrant for a man accused of shooting four people outside a nightclub in St. Robert on Saturday morning. Robert Ray Brown, 28, is charged with four counts of first- degree assault.
Investigators say a police officer on patrol near the club heard several gun shots and discovered four men with gunshot wounds. Three were flown to a Springfield hospital for treatment. The condition of the four men have not been released. While investigating the shooting, the Pulaski County sheriff's department arrested two men believed to be at the scene; they face unrelated drug charges. Brown was not in custody on Sunday evening. Anyone with information regarding the shooting is asked to call the St. Robert police department.

OK, I said I was tired, I just reread you post and #9 is only half wrong. The manpower needs in the jail would be met with this tax but we could not build a new jail with the tax. So the working conditions in the jail and our ability to reduce the Counties liability risk would be greatly enhanced by this tax.

An afterthought as far as possibly not getting support from the municipal voters because they are not getting a piece of the pie. Is it possible to write the tax so that after the first year or 2 then a portion of the money gets diverted to the municipal departments. That gives PCSD 1 or 2 years of the extra funds to try and get ontop of things and then still gives PCSD and CITY PD the benifits of the tax and benifits of larger budgets down the road.

I totally understand that when multiple hands reach into the cookie jar that someone is going to come up with nothing. I was just thinking of things that may keep the LE tax from getting full support. The reality is that even if the tax was just for PCSD it still supports the municipal departments just in an indirect fashion. How many times does County assist the city departments and vise versa. The reality is if the PCSD was able to hire more officers to put on the road then the city PD would have more assistance for there calls by PCSD if needed. Also the more enforcement that can be put on the drugs and criminals out in the county will reduce the crime in and out of the municipalities. The bottom line is if the tax is passed equals;
1. more deputies
2. more cars
3. more equipment
4. dedicated narcotics enforcement
5. more support to municipal departments (if needed)
6. keeping seasoned and experienced deputies and staff
7. quicker response to the citizens
8. SAFER Pulaski County
9. BIGGER and Safer Jail environment

I could continue but I think everyone gets the point

Very informative and agree 100 percent. Couple questions. I believe awhile back when this was being talked about there was a portion that was going to go to each of the municipal police departments also. Is this still in the guidelines? or is this strictly for the PCSD? Don't get me wrong I agree that the PCSD is in desperate need of help. Also if this was passed what happens to Richlands LE tax that has already passed? If this tax is not going to give anything to the municipal departments than what support can you see from the voters that live within the city limits? Just a few thoughts that come to mind. Again just a few questions and I am in full support of the tax and will vote yes on the tax if placed on the ballot.

Just a small side bar, statute does say that you will yield the right of way to approaching emergency vehicles, doesn't say from which direction the emergency vehicle has to be coming so if you see the lights move over.

Lets not forget that even if you are approaching a stationary emergency vehicle with lights on move to the other lane and slow down and if that is not possible slow down to a safe speed. You never know what may happen as you are passing a traffic stop and there is a law that states you must slow and move over when approaching an emergency vehicle.

Ok, I will use the same theory I use on my 12 year old. If you feel you are being picked on then follow the law and they will either have no choice but to stop pulling you over or you will have a good argument and better evidence of possible harrassment. Otherwise, you are breaking the law and they have a legal right to ticket you. If you choose to continue your current behavior, knowing you are breaking the law, suffer the consequences and stop whining.

From the photos of her car it appears to have some custom work done. That is kind of like the window tint, if it is factory done I don't think you could be fined for that, but if you put aftermarket tint on and it does not fall into the state requirements than it is your responsibility to get it fixed. Mounting a plate is not difficult, they sell mounting hardware at auto parts stores.. may not look as nice but it will make it legal.

RSMO 301-130 5. No motor vehicle or trailer shall be operated on any highway of this state unless it shall have displayed thereon the license plate or set of license plates issued by the director of revenue or the state highways and transportation commission and authorized by section 301.140. Each such plate shall be securely fastened to the motor vehicle or trailer in a manner so that all parts thereof shall be plainly visible and reasonably clean so that the reflective qualities thereof are not impaired. Each such plate may be encased in a transparent cover so long as the plate is plainly visible and its reflective qualities are not impaired. License plates shall be fastened to all motor vehicles except trucks, tractors, truck tractors or truck-tractors licensed in excess of twelve thousand pounds on the front and rear of such vehicles not less than eight nor more than forty-eight inches above the ground, with the letters and numbers thereon right side up. The license plates on trailers, motorcycles, motortricycles and motorscooters shall be displayed on the rear of such vehicles, with the letters and numbers thereon right side up. The license plate on buses, other than school buses, and on trucks, tractors, truck tractors or truck-tractors licensed in excess of twelve thousand pounds shall be displayed on the front of such vehicles not less than eight nor more than forty-eight inches above the ground, with the letters and numbers thereon right side up or if two plates are issued for the vehicle pursuant to subsection 3 of this section, displayed in the same manner on the front and rear of such vehicles. The license plate or plates authorized by section 301.140, when properly attached, shall be prima facie evidence that the required fees have been paid.
it states above that plates will be displayed in the same manner front and rear, also states that the must be displayed within certain height requirements and on the front and rear of the vehicle.. on the dash is not the front of your vehicle it is more like the middle. Also states must be plainly visible. dont know about you but plainly visibly pointing at the sky is not right to me.

Sway - I was not trying to insult you, I was just stating that just because you do not know you are breaking a law does not make it okay to do so, and if you have been stopped for improper display of plates then you are aware of the law and it sounds like you still choose to violate that law. There are numerous laws that do not hurt someone else that does not make it okay to violate those laws.

Waynesville plans for McCulloch retirement

Darrell Todd Maurina

Waynesville Police Committee members spent most of their Thursday afternoon meeting in closed session deciding their next step once longtime Police Chief Don McCulloch retires next spring.

McCulloch submitted his resignation on Aug. 28 and his last day in office will be March 1.
City leaders had planned to use a “chief-designee” position, but Police Committee Chairman Ed Conley said a legal review shows that may not work without a change in city ordinances.

“The wording is kind of ambiguous,” Conley said. “The second part of the paragraph apparently stops us from appointing a chief-designee as long as we have a chief.”

Conley said city council members will check with City Attorney Ralph Muxlow as well as William Morgan, the former city attorney who wrote the ordinance, to determine the intent of the ordinance and how to proceed.
No decision has yet been made on selecting a new chief, Conley said, and the vacancy has not been publicly advertised.

“Right now we’re just looking at what we want to look for,” Conley said. “We are trying to establish the criteria. Obviously, whenever you can promote from within, that is always considered to be the best way to go with things.”

In other business, police committee members discussed what to do about a fitness center owner on the corner of Historic Route 66 and Highway 17 who has posted “no parking” signs on his building.
“The chief said he will look into that situation, because obviously we are not going to enforce private parking regulations,” Conley said. “It is a city street and we control whether you are able to park in a particular situation.”

Installation of 27 mobile police radios obtained through a $56,000 federal grant is on hold for a few weeks until the city’s radio installer recovers from an injury, Conley said. The radios will also be installed in the city’s utility trucks, according to City Administrator Bruce Harrill.

“The purpose is to get us all in a disaster on the same channel,” Harrill said.
Comments are limited to 200 words or less.

Police Reform wrote on Sep 13, 2007 8:05 AM: " The City of Waynesville NEEDS to ensure that they hire the new chief of police from an outside agency! Please don't hire someone locally based on the "good ole' boy system." The vacancy announcement needs to be opened at minimum state wide. They need to hire a qualified individual from a larger agency outside of the area who is not tied to this community. Having someone who is willing to make changes and take a professional and progressive attitude towards policing would be a great improvement for this community. "

"  FitNFree wrote on Sep 12, 2007 5:25 PM: " As a patron of the fitness center on the corner, I am amazed at the LACK of cooperation with downtown businesses to ensure them to have adaquate parking. The larger building attached to the fitness center is fortunate they have no need for local parking because they would starve! How did the supermarket do it?? Oh wait they had "JIMS PARKING ONLY SIGNS". "

Below is a link for the Waynesville Police Department Tip Line. This is completely confidential and is available 24/7 and is checked at least twice a day. If you have information about something within the city limits of Waynesville please feel free to use this service. I am not sure if Pulaski County Sheriff's Department has a tip line or any of the other departments for that matter. If you feel this is the only way you can get the information to the correct department please feel free to use this service. I will make sure that it gets to the correct agency. Just make sure you note that the location so that I can make sure the right agency gets the information.

Hmmm lets see one officer on scene within minutes and 3 to 4 cars on scene or in the area within what 5 minutes give or take. sounds like a pretty good response time to me. Considering some of those cars could have been in Dixon or Richland and would of had to respond from there. I don't think that was the case on this call but just think if it would have been like last night where at one point you had the cars on and they were all on one side of the county dealing with stuff. It probably would have taken alot longer and a lot less officers would have been able to respond, which could have put that officer that was on scene in a matter of minutes at risk and with only one officer or two officer's responding to a shots fired call you never know what you are walking into. My hat is off to the officer that responded from his residence with no radio and no update on what was going on and no idea how long before the on call car or cars would get there. Lets not question the time it takes, lets just applaud the men and woman for responding to a possibly very bad situation without any hesitation. Good Job guys and gals

Hull Drive - There are two options that you can attempt:

1. Go to WPD and talk to the Chief or Asst. Chief and ask for extra patrols, many streets have been hit in the last month or so with many complaints and the officers are trying to get those streets under control, but with anything it will only last for so long. WPD could run radar on your street for a week or so and then everyone will realize that they need to slow down but a month later they will be back at. If you know the peek traffic times on Hull Drive that would also be useful.

2. As for the speed bumps that is something that the City Council and roads would have to approve. This could also be something that maybe the subdivision could get together and assist the roads department in paying for the speed bumps.

These are just suggestions.

I can not tell you why they don't or why they wont. what I can suggest is get with your subdivision and have a spokesman come to the Waynesville City Council meeting and bring up the question to them. They would be the ones you need to talk to.
