City Architect Honored with Medal for Career Achievementhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/street-transportation/2575Street Transportation11/22/2022 5:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2575/gary nelson - aia architects medal (newsroom crop).jpgCity Architect Honored with Medal for Career Achievement<div class="ExternalClassCE8E1B7EBD9F4421B07198AA331190C6"><html> <p>​Gary J. Nelson, an architect who works in Phoenix's Office of the City Engineer, was recently awarded the prestigious Architects Medal by the <a target="_blank" href="https://www.aia.org/arizona">American Institute of Architects (AIA) Arizona Chapter</a>. Since the award's inception in 1981, he is the first African American to receive this honor. Nelson also is the first African American architect to be employed by the City of Phoenix.<br></p> <p>The AIA Arizona Architects Medal is awarded to honor and celebrate members of the organization who have advanced the profession of architecture, recognizing their outstanding professional achievements and sense of social responsibility. The nominee's achievements must be viewed as an advancement of the profession.<br></p><p>Nelson was presented with the medal during the AIA Arizona Design Awards Gala held on Saturday, November 12 at the Phoenix Art Museum.​<br></p> <p>During his 37-year career as an architect, including four years with the City of Phoenix, Nelson has compiled an impressive list of professional achievements and serves as an advocate for minorities and women within his profession.<br></p> <p>As an architect with the City of Phoenix, highlights of his projects include the Weather Respite Shelter on 27th Street and Washington Street, the Phoenix Convention Center shoring wall, Fire Station 62, the renovation of the Footprint Center in downtown, and Operation Patch and Paint neighborhood commercial rehabilitation.</p> <p>A registered architect in 20 states, his private sector work includes project architect of Phoenix's Chase Field, and George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center, and project management of Atlanta's Mercedes Benz Stadium. He also led Michael Baker International's expansion of its architecture practice in the western United States, and was the company's first African American assistant vice president. </p> <p>Nelson is the founder of the <a target="_blank" href="https://nomaarizona.org/">Arizona Chapter of the National Association of Minority Architects (NOMA)</a>. NOMA is a community-based multicultural organization that has programs to introduce architecture to youth in underserved communities, mentor college and emerging professionals, and increase the number of minorities and women in architecture. Less than 2 percent of registered architects in the United States are African American. In October 2022, during its national conference, NOMA selected NOMAarizona as large chapter of the year.</p> <p>In his second term as NOMA West Region Vice President, Nelson led the organization's expansion into the West Region, growing it from three chapters in 2017 to eight by 2022, with the most recent chapter addition coming in Utah. </p> <p>In response to addressing discrimination following the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis in 2020, Nelson developed and led NOMAarizona's Call To Action.

He has also attended precinct patrol briefings to talk to the men and women directly serving the community. <br><br>As a result of his initial assessment, Chief Sullivan has outlined a plan to provide skills and options to officers aimed at successfully and safely defusing a range of critical incidents. His four-pronged plan includes: <br></p> <ul> <li> <p>Reinforced patrol briefing training on time, distance, and cover.  </p> </li> <li> <p>Arranging for national best practice scenario-based training on de-escalation. </p> </li> <li> <p>Reviewing the Department's Use of Force policy </p> </li> <li> <p>Expanding the Department's less lethal program <br><br></p> </li> </ul> <p> <strong>Reinforced Training</strong> <br> <br>The initial few moments after officers arrive on a scene are critical. “The decisions and actions of law enforcement officers are critically important and can change the course of lives in a matter of seconds. That responsibility forces us to constantly look at ways to get better and do better," said Chief Sullivan.<br><br>To ensure officers have the latest and best tools, information and approaches, mandatory patrol briefings have long been used as opportunities to address procedures and policies that change or need reinforcing. Chief Sullivan has directed a series of mandatory patrol briefings be conducted on the principals of creating time, distance and cover in critical situations in order to have time to develop a plan to address the situation safely for all parties involved. <br><br><strong>De-escalation & Scenario-based Training  </strong><br><br>Chief Sullivan will implement nationally recognized training developed by the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF). The training, known as ICAT (Integrating Communications, Assessment and Tactics), is scenario-based training for times when officers encounter volatile situations with erratic and potentially dangerous subjects who are not armed with a gun. <br><br><strong>Policy Review</strong><br><br>While the Department constantly reviews its policies, Chief Sullivan has initiated a deep dive into the use of force policy. His goal is to ensure Phoenix PD has the gold standard in law enforcement policies to support the most positive outcome for our community and our officers. This review will also take into consideration standards known to be approved by the Department of Justice. A draft of the policy will be released for public input and comment before finalization. <br><br><strong>Expanding Less Lethal Tools and Training  </strong><br><br>An expansion of the Department's less lethal program is underway. Starting this week, and for the following four weeks, 12 officers per week will be trained on less lethal tools, specifically the PepperBall. This tool allows law enforcement the ability to disable or deter threats, resolve situations without lethal force, and accomplish missions while preserving life. The goal is to equip an additional 400 officers with less lethal options before the end of 2023, 200 PepperBall devices and 200 40mm impact launchers. <br><br>“This plan revolves around the concept that preservation of life is at the core of policing," said Sullivan. “Becoming a self-correcting organization fosters continuous improvement which allows us to refocus on that core ideal which is more important now than ever." <br><br>The Phoenix Police Department prides itself on being a progressive, adaptable law enforcement agency and Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego extended her support to Chief Sullivan and the experience he brings to the job. “Chief Sullivan has led reform and modernization in major cities," said Mayor Gallego. “He has a record of bringing out the best in public safety and working to create stronger and safer communities. I am optimistic for the future of Phoenix Police and look forward to continued work with Chief to make Phoenix an even safer city." <br><br>All over the country police departments are facing a multitude of challenges and Phoenix PD is no exception. City Manager Jeff Barton cited Chief Sullivan's leadership characteristics as the reason he hired Sullivan. <br><br>“Michael Sullivan has a unique skill set to collaborate with communities, oversee reform, and implement changes needed to move the department through the current Department of Justice investigation and into the future," said Barton. <br><br>Chief Sullivan will continue to update the community on his vision for the department and the progress achieved in the coming months.   </p> <br> <br> <p> <br> </p> </html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeNewspolicePolice

Critical Incident Briefing: November 6, 2022 https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/2572Police11/18/2022 9:45:00 PMhttps://youtu.be/MCLaGm7mejgCritical Incident Briefing: November 6, 2022 <div class="ExternalClass9D5F7CFD865547118CA82E03C6081D85"><html> WARNING: The attached video may contain strong language as well as graphic images which may be disturbing to some people. Viewer discretion is advised.<br> <br>The Phoenix Police Department has released a Critical Incident Briefing (CIB) video that includes audio, visuals and information related to a critical incident that occurred on November 6, 2022.<br><br>This incident began in the area of 32nd and Glenrosa Avenues around 4:30 p.m. when a community member called 911. The caller told the 911 operator that a man was shot in the head. <br><br>The caller indicated his friend was shot by 5 black males who left in a white vehicle. <br><br>As a two-person patrol team arrived on scene, witnesses pointed at a white vehicle driving by and told officers the suspects were in that car. Officers followed the car to the area of 31st Avenue and Campbell Road where they attempted to pull it over. The vehicle did not stop so the officers turned on their lights and siren and went into pursuit. <br><br>The pursuit continued into an apartment complex in the area of 21st and Turney Avenues. The vehicle stopped and the passengers in the back seat got out and took off running. The car took off again and crashed into a parked car. The driver and front seat passenger got out and took off running. The officers chased the two males through the complex. One of the males then climbed a block wall, and that is when the officer-involved shooting occurred.<br><br>Surveillance footage was obtained from the apartments that captures the two males running from the officers. One of the males had a firearm in his left hand. <br><br>The two males were later found in the area uninjured. Another man was located in the area but was later released. The rear passengers were not located. The victim from the initial call was treated at the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. No other community members or officers were injured.<br><br>A firearm was located in the alley on the other side of the wall where the officer-involved shooting occurred. <br><br>The officer involved in this shooting has been with the department for 3 years and is assigned to the Cactus Park Precinct.<br><br>This incident is the subject of an administrative and criminal investigation into the actions of the officers as well as a separate criminal investigation into the man's actions. The criminal investigations will be turned over to the Maricopa County Attorney's Office for review.<br><br><p>Conclusions about whether the actions of the officers are consistent with department policy and the law will not be made until all facts are known and the investigation is complete.<br> <br>Public records law required redaction of certain personal identifying information before video is released publicly. That is why you may see some parts of Body Worn Camera (BWC) blurred or covered with a black box. Redacted video is released to local media in conjunction with the release of this Critical Incident Briefing for independent review and publication. Complete, unedited versions of the BWC are released to attorneys and the courts as evidence in a criminal case.<br></p><br></html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideopolicePolice
