Re: RCMP and Versadex

Versadex is the CAD (dispatch) side of the equation. In my opinion, it is inferior to the older CIIDS system. Versadex is much like a DOS based system, versus CIIDS, which was a windows based system. I'm told that a Windows version of Versadex is coming but I have yet to see it. For a number of reas...

Re: PC and Winter Tires?

Even here on central Vancouver Island we have winter tires put on the cars. Although we don't get alot of snow on the island, when we do it makes a real mess. It's just like bumper cars out there, you get into your car and takes your chances Numerous PC's who have not had the tires installed yet usu...

Re: 4 Officers shot and killed...

Thoughts and prayers are with the families of the fallen officers at this difficult time. They are
also with the larger law enforcement community of Lakewood and area. RIP brothers and sister.

Stay safe.... :(

Nikon P90 Coolpix

Just looking at upgrading my current point and shoot digital (Olympus C5000) to a Nikon P90 Coolpix. The P90 is a 12.1 mp with 24X wide angle optical lens. Anyone have any experience with this camera, and any opinions good or bad. I am not a professional photographer - just looking to get good pictu...

[/quote] This is no longer the case. VPD set up an effective non-emergency number about five years ago.[/quote] Sorry - wasn't aware of that. Everytime I try to "educate" a caller on the use of 9-1-1, they tell me "when I lived in Vancouver we were told to call 9-1-1 for everything&qu...

Re: Should you call 911 for non-emergency accidents?

Stump you would be a person that might have some better insight into this angle. We have wonderful telecommunications technology today and we can see how 9-1-1 works reasonably well as it is simple for Joe and Jane Citizen to use (properly or otherwise....) so would it make sense to create an easy ...

Re: Should you call 911 for non-emergency accidents?

In one word "NO" . I have been a police dispatcher, and dispatch supervisor for over 23 years. The centre I work in is a PSAP - Public Safety Answering Point. We get ALL the 9-1-1 calls for police, fire, ambulance, and sometimes the coast guard. Calls are transferred via speed line to the ...

Re: Mountie Makers

I've had the opportunity to read this book a couple of times, and would recommend it for anyone interested in joining the RCMP, or anyone interested in law enforcement in general. Although I spoke to the author Bob Teather on numerous occasions, I never had the priviledge of meeting him in person. B...

Re: Park Wardens & Conservation Officers

I have read the Canadian Geographic article and found it to be better than I expected. I would have liked to see the writer present a bit more on what the current and future duties of the Wardens will be, ie: how they deal with poaching complaints, what evidence they look for, etc. That being said, ...

Park Wardens & Conservation Officers

I would like to see a story on Park Wardens after their transition to sidearms has been completed. It will be interesting to hear of the challenges that they have gone through, and the future challenges they face. They have a unique job in law enforcement, protecting our national parks. It will be e...
