If you or someone you know needs assistance, please reach out. For more information, visit Humantraffickinghotline.org/<br></p><p>Human trafficking does not discriminate. Anyone can fall victim to it, both men and women. </p><p>The trauma caused by the traffickers can be so great that many may not identify themselves as victims or ask for help, even in highly public settings.</p><p>Human trafficking involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. Every year, millions of men, women, and children are trafficked worldwide – including right here in the United States. It can happen in any community and victims can be any age, race, gender, or nationality. Traffickers might use the following methods to lure victims into trafficking situations:</p><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li><p>Violence</p></li><li><p>Manipulation</p></li><li><p>False promises of well-paying jobs</p></li><li><p>Romantic relationships </p></li></ul><p> <strong>Resources:</strong> </p><p>AATN Arizona Anti-Trafficking Network: <a href="https://aatnaz.org/" target="_blank">aatnaz.org</a> or 1-844-400-2286</p><p>National Human Trafficking Hotline: <a href="https://humantraffickinghotline.org/" target="_blank">Humantraffickinghotline.org</a> or 1-888-373-7888</p><p>Language barriers, fear of their traffickers, and/or fear of law enforcement frequently keep victims from seeking help, making human trafficking a hidden crime.</p><p>Traffickers look for people who are easy targets for a variety of reasons, including:</p><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li><p>Psychological or emotional vulnerability</p></li><li><p>Economic hardship</p></li><li><p>Lack of a social safety net</p></li><li><p>Natural disasters</p></li><li><p>Political instability</p></li></ul><p>The trauma caused by the traffickers can be so great that many may not identify themselves as victims or ask for help, even in highly public settings.</p><p>Many <a href="https://www.dhs.gov/blue-campaign/myths-and-misconceptions" target="_blank">myths and misconceptions</a> exist. Recognizing key <a href="https://www.dhs.gov/blue-campaign/indicators-human-trafficking" target="_blank">indicators</a> of human trafficking is the first step in identifying victims and can help <a href="https://www.dhs.gov/blue-campaign/human-interest-stories" target="_blank">save a life</a>. Not all indicators listed are present in every human trafficking situation, and the presence or absence of any of the indicators is not necessarily proof of human trafficking.</p><p>The safety of the public as well as the victim is important. Do not attempt to confront a suspected trafficker directly or alert a victim to any suspicions. It is up to law enforcement to investigate suspected cases of human trafficking.​<br></p><h2 id="tips04">Fire Department Tips<br></h2><p>Phoenix Fire is committed to providing the highest level of customer service and resources to our community, members, and visitors. Phoenix firefighters save lives and protect property through fire suppression, emergency med ical and transportation services, all-hazards incident management, and community risk reduction efforts. With 58 fire stations strategically placed around the city, Phoenix Fire has all hands-on deck in preparation for the influx of visitors and events within the city. Despite the city's preparation, Phoenix Fire also wants the community to be prepared:</p><p>• If you plan on attending any pregame festivities including concerts; Phoenix Fire encourages you to go prepared. That means, wear sensible shoes and clothing. But most importantly, go hydrated. Although the weather in February should be mild, the Phoenix sun can take its toll on those who are not used to it. ​<br></p><p>• In addition to Super Bowl activities, the City of Phoenix is proud to offer beautiful parks to its residents and visitors. Including more than 35 trails covering 320 miles throughout the city. But with its beauty, comes great responsibility.

Phoenix Fire and Local 493 Host Annual RBOhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/fire/2948Fire12/6/2023 7:00:00 AMhttps://youtu.be/Hkfygd50EPcPhoenix Fire and Local 493 Host Annual RBO<div class="ExternalClassAD63F804788E4CC9A8CDFBB42B57C99B"><html>RBO is a rich and successful aspect of the Phoenix Fire Department’s history and culture.<br><br>This year marks the 34th Anniversary of our annual Relationships by Objective (RBO) annual Labor Management process. It is an important retreat that allows the Phoenix Fire Department and its partners in United Phoenix Fire Firefighters Association (U.P.F.F.A.) Local 493 to identify organizational priorities that affect our firefighters and civilian support staff. Labor management members work collectively on naming and achieving goals that are critical to helping our department thrive. <br><br>The process began in the late eighties after tumultuous challenges began to erode the relationship between fire labor and management.  The RBO process, which is now deeply institutionalized, begins with a labor management retreat during which both sides bring organizational priorities to the table.  Goals are identified and representatives from labor and management are assigned to find solutions. It allows the fire department to seamlessly come together on issues which effect our members.  <br><br>This year’s annual retreat was held at the city of Phoenix Burton Barr Pulliam Auditorium.  Approximately 75 members attended with the first order of business, to review the 2023 action items.  The event was also broadcast live on the Phoenix Fire Department’s Youtube Channel and social media.<br><br>Action items from this year’s event included development of a strategic plan, examining staffing automation, evaluating a wellness fitness initiative, reviewing the labor management team procedure, an assessment of nature code responses, healthy work hours and a work schedule assessment, career development, and a pilot program on firefighter fitness and injury prevention.<br><br>In the afternoon labor and management leaders discussed new action plans for 2024.  Some action items were carried over, such as the Strategic Plan Implementation and nature code response assessment. Others are new, such as staffing automation and integration, payroll efficiencies and solutions, developing internal and external workshops, and strategies for internal communication. Co-chairs representing labor and management were named for each new action plan. Each sub-committee will name quarterly goals and report regularly to labor management leadership.<br><br>Sometimes a group decision is not possible or not in one or both parties’ best interest. In those cases, the appropriate party (labor or management) will decide. The Fire Chief has the final decision-making authority for management decisions, and the Union President has the final decision-making authority for labor decisions. This is agreed upon by the participants and is a key to the effectiveness of labor/management process. <br><br>The beauty of the RBO process is that it is a “give and take” for both sides and the outcome usually represents what is best for the “greater good” of the organization. That is a win that both labor and management can always agree upon.<br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/fireVideo
Critical Incident Briefing - November 20, 2023 - 25th Drive and Earll Drivehttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/2947Police12/4/2023 10:00:00 PMhttps://youtu.be/D86PxkHpX54Critical Incident Briefing - November 20, 2023 - 25th Drive and Earll Drive<div class="ExternalClass8994475272CB45F3948E2AC0310440A0"><html> <p>​<strong style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">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></p> <p>The Phoenix Police Department released a Critical Incident Briefing (CIB) video that includes audio, visuals and information related to an officer-involved shooting (OIS) which occurred on November 20, 2023 in the area of 25th Drive and Earll Drive.</p> <p>This incident originally began in the area of 24th Drive and Thomas Road when Phoenix Police contacted a man after an officer almost struck the man as he rode his bike midblock across Thomas Road. </p> <p>During this contact, the officer detained the man by escorting him to the ground. While on the ground the man did not follow commands. The officer saw a handgun in the man's waistband and order the man not to move. The man resisted and forced his way to his feet. The officer pushed the man away to create distance and took cover behind her patrol car. The man ran away west on Thomas Road. While running the man fired multiple rounds in the officer's direction.  </p> <p> </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 required redaction of certain personal identifying information before video is released publicly. This 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><br></p> </html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideo
