A lengthy list of initiatives implemented at the Los Alamos Police Department since Police Chief Wayne Torpy took the helm in early 2005 have continued throughout 2007.
This year, Los Alamos is one of just a few states initially invited to use the Law Enforcement Information Exchange (LInx) developed by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. LInx allows operators to input data by suspect name, alias, address, telephone number, or illegal act and to access relevant information from all participating agencies through the national data warehouse.
In 2007, police set two principal priorities – lowering traffic accidents and burglaries, Torpy said. To address traffic accidents, the department implemented the Strategic Traffic Enforcement Plan or S.T.E.P., aimed at reducing both traffic accidents and citizen complaints by targeting dangerous driving behaviors, and directing specific enforcement efforts at high accident locations around the county.
