Critical Incident Briefing: June 10, 2022 – 91st Avenue and McDowell Roadhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/2397Police6/24/2022 10:00:00 PMhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Dyrzqgg5X4Critical Incident Briefing: June 10, 2022 – 91st Avenue and McDowell Road<div class="ExternalClass981DB1335D1C4D3EB02FFF2DDD533B68"><html> <p>​</p> <p> <strong>WARNING: The attached video may contain strong language as well as graphic images which may be disturbing to some people. Viewer discretion is advised.</strong> <br> <br>The Phoenix Police Department has released a Critical Incident Briefing (CIB) video that includes audio, visuals and information related to an in-custody death which occurred on June 10, 2022.</p> <p>This incident occurred in the area of 91st Avenue and McDowell Road when Phoenix police received several calls about a man believed to be under the influence, banging his head against a vehicle, and acting erratic.</p> <p>Officers were dispatched to the scene and learned the subject of the call may also be bleeding. Tolleson fire personnel were also dispatched. </p> <p>The first officer to arrive at the business saw the subject of the call, later identified as Caleb Blair, and attempted to give him commands via a public announcement system. The officer saw Blair nude, and acting erratically. Additional officers arrived and Blair was detained for his safety and taken to a shady section of the parking lot. Officers also requested fire personnel, who were staging nearby, to respond to the scene.</p> <p>Minutes later, the Tolleson Fire Department arrived on the scene and began treating Blair. After a short time, his handcuffs were removed to better provide medical care.</p> <p>While being treated, Blair lost consciousness. Life saving measures were rendered, and he was taken to a local hospital where he died from his injuries.</p> <p>The officers involved in this incident are assigned to the Maryvale-Estrella Precinct and have 5, 6, and 7 years of service respectively, with the department.</p> <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. An internal investigation by the Professional Standard Bureau is currently underway, in addition to a criminal investigation. Once the criminal investigation is complete it will then be reviewed by the Maricopa County Attorney's Office.</p> <p>Public records law requires 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> <p> <br> </p> </html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideo

Last year, this team collected nearly 700,000 tons of refuse, recycling and green organics. Join us in thanking these public servants during <a href="https://www.wasterecyclingworkersweek.org/" target="_blank">Waste and Recycling Workers Week</a>, and every week, for their dedication to making Phoenix a clean and sustainable place to live.</p> <p>Solid Waste Equipment Operators (SWEO), or garbage truck drivers, are at the heart of this massive operation. These professionals are reliable yet flexible – they always get the job done, but still make time to high-five excited toddlers along their routes.</p> <p>As Phoenix rapidly grows, so does the need for these essential workers. The Public Works Department is actively recruiting to fill more than 40 SWEO vacancies. </p> <p>A career as a SWEO is rewarding and has many opportunities for advancement and on-the-job training. There are opportunities for current CDL drivers and apprenticeships for those seeking their CDL.
