    PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

  • Vandals leave mark

    The Los Alamos Police Department is investigating a series of taggings or graffiti along Trinity Drive Wednesday.

    Vandals allegedly hit the Shriners Lodge, 1407 Trinity Drive, Elks Lodge, 1600 Trinity Drive, the Zia Realty truck parked behind the Shriners and some transformers located near the Shell Station, 2591 Trinity Drive.

    “Hopefully we can figure this out before they tag everything in town,” LAPD Cpl. David Boe said.

    Acting police chief Phil Taylor said Thursday morning it was an active investigation and there were no suspects.

    The owner of the truck is Zia Realty’s James Chrobocinski and he announced Thursday that he is offering a reward leading to the arrest of the people responsible.

    “My insurance does not cover the damage and we estimate the repairs to cost close to $3,000. I put all the logos on myself and will have to redo it myself,” Chrobocinski said in an email.

    “I am very disappointed to have this sort of thing happen in Los Alamos. I hope our police department is able to catch these people and prevent this sort of thing from happening to anyone else. “

  • AP Impact: Some ankle bracelet alarms go unchecked

    Three decades after they were introduced as a crime-fighting tool, electronic ankle bracelets used to track an offender's whereabouts have proliferated so much that officials are struggling to handle an avalanche of monitoring alerts that are often nothing more sinister than a dead battery, lost satellite contact or someone arriving home late from work.

    Amid all that white noise, alarms are going unchecked, sometimes on defendants now accused of new crimes.

    Some agencies don't have clear protocols on how to handle the multitude of alerts, or don't always follow them. At times, officials took days to act, if they noticed at all, when criminals tampered with their bracelets or broke a curfew.

    "I think the perception ... is that these people are being watched 24 hours a day by someone in a command center. That's just not happening," said Rob Bains, director of court services for Florida's Ninth Judicial Circuit Court, which this spring halted its monitoring programs after two people on the devices were accused in separate shootings.

    At least 100,000 sex offenders, parolees and people free on bail or probation wear ankle bracelets that can sound an alarm if they leave home without permission, fail to show up for work or linger near a playground or school.
