Thats when the two really struggled. Officer Nunlee pulls my pants down and we were tousling over my pants. Hes pulling them down and Im pulling them up. Officer Nunlee is. Im pulling them up and hes pulling them down. And he squats down on his knees, said the victim. The victim said thats when Nunlee licked around her private part. He then comes up on one leg and he pulls my shirt up and Im just telling him to stop and hes just telling me to be quiet., said the victim. Defense attorney Antonio Tuddles tried to discredit the victim because she didnt tell anyone of the assault until later and didnt tell police until the next day. You understood that another officer was downstairs badge and gun. You understood that right? asked Tuddles. The victim responded with a yes.

Wis. bill mandates rules for officer-involved deaths

The new bill applies to deaths that happen when an officer is on duty or while he or she is off duty but performing activities that are within the scope of his or her law enforcement duties. Internal department investigations are also still allowed but cannot interfere with the work of the outside investigations, the bill says. Walker signed the legislation into law Wednesday. "An overwhelming majority of police officers follow procedures and do a good job of protecting and serving the public," Walker said in a statement. "This bill just adds another level of transparency in the investigation process." Jim Palmer, executive director of Wisconsin Professional Police Association, echoed those sentiments. "There is a great value in having uniforms and standards applied across the board," Palmer said. "This represents a positive move forward." Palmer, Bell and Wisconsin State Rep. Gary Bies, who introduced the bill, say they believe this is the first law of its kind. The National Conference of State Legislatures, which tracks laws around the country, hasn't compiled a 50-state review of the issue, an official there said. Chuck Wexler, executive director of Police Executive Research Forum, also wasn't sure whether other states have similar measures. Bies spent more than 30 years at the Door County Sheriff's Department, serving some of that time as the chief deputy sheriff.

Mocarski rides for good friend, Matthew Melchionda who was killed on duty in a motor vehicle accident on March 8, 2006. "I will ride in memory of Matt every year until I am physically no longer able to," said Ptl. Mocarski. Melchionda was killed when a vehicle did not yield to his police vehicle and turned left as Melchionda was passing. Melchionda was killed instantly. Ptl. Trent Fettes rides for Ptl. Jonathan Molina, whom Fettes served in the United States Marine Corps in Kings Bay, GA. "I am honored to be riding this year's tour in his memory," said Ptl. Fettes. While off duty, Molina witnessed a group of criminals committing property damage.

John O'Donnell was Nassau's No. 1 earner in 2013 with $554,038 in total wages, including $122,759 in base pay; $53,425 in overtime and $313,341 in termination pay. Retired Lt. James McHale ranked second with $533,592 in total pay, including $144,977 in base salary, $41,812 in overtime and $339,072 in termination pay. Retired Capt. Alvin Johnson was third with $529,381, including $156,724 in base pay, $4,515 in overtime and $356,406 in termination pay. O'Donnell declined to comment, according to union president Brian Hoesl, and efforts to reach McHale and Johnson were unsuccessful. Hoesl said the termination pay is "earned, and I wholeheartedly believe they are entitled to it both contractually and morally." Tim Hoefer, executive director of the Empire Center for Public Policy, which promotes free market principles, described the retirement packages received by Nassau cops as a "prehistoric benefit" that should have been rescinded years ago. "These are benefits that no longer really exist in the private sector world," Hoefer said. PBA president James Carver said the termination pay policy "saves the county money" by allowing officers to store up sick and vacation time. If they had to use it as they earned it, other officers could have to fill in for them on overtime, he said. The report comes as the wages of about 7,000 full-time Nassau employees remain frozen by the Nassau Interim Finance Authority, a state monitoring board that controls the county's finances. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit <a href='' rel='nofollow'></a>

The three-year cap took effect in 2011 and ran until March 31. It was designed to rein in police and firefighter salary increases that were routinely in the area of 4 to 5 percent a year. Police and firefighter unions won these awards through an arbitration system that was skewed. As long as a bargaining unit in one town won an annual salary increase of, say, 4.5 percent, that award served as a guide for other units in the area. While no one questions the dedication and commitment of police and firefighters, such awards often prompted municipalities to make other cuts in services or personnel. That can certainly happen again, especially when you consider that the state's overall 2 percent cap on property taxes remains in effect. Keeping tax increases to a maximum of 2 percent when police salaries theoretically could rise by twice that amount is difficult. The most frustrating aspect of this debate is that agreement to extend the 2 percent arbitration cap was reached last week between the governor and the state Senate, which, like the Assembly, is controlled by Democrats. The Senate quickly approved extending the cap last week, but the Assembly didn't. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit <a href='' rel='nofollow'></a>
