Instruction & Introduction of Case Management & Assignment

Case management in law enforcement may not be the most exhilarating topic to cover when discussing law enforcement issues, but it is essential nonetheless. All law enforcement officers, but especially law enforcement officers operating in an investigative capacity must be trained and proficient in their department or agency’s case management system and evidence management system in order to do their jobs effectively.

Child Abuse Investigations

Both physical and sexual child abuse are horrible crimes that may have long lasting effects on the victim, even into adulthood.

In remembering Officer Vargo, when you see police at an intersection, road, or highway, directing traffic, sitting with a broke down vehicle, or even on a traffic stop, slow down, move over to the farthest left lane, and if you’re intoxicated, call Uber. We owe this to Officer Vargo and the life he never got to have.
