New Canine Search Puppy and Phoenix Fire Handler Return to Phoenixhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/fire/394Fire9/19/2018 4:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/394/tallon k9 puppy 3 rotated.jpgNew Canine Search Puppy and Phoenix Fire Handler Return to Phoenix<div class="ExternalClass17CAFA317E14408DA48D2372F1616D0E"><html> <p>​Phoenix Firefighter Mike Smith and his new search dog "Tallon" will be available for any members of the media interested in meeting them when they arrive at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport on a Southwest Airlines flight from Philadelphia on September 21, 2018 at 7:40 p.m. on Southwest Flight #2490.  Tallon has been raised at the University of Pennsylvania Working Dog Center and has undergone months of training.  Mike has just met him for the first time and has spent the last few days training with him in Philadelphia. Tallon will continue his search dog training and become FEMA certified with Mike here in Phoenix in the next six to eight months.  He will live with and become a member of Mike's family.  </p> <p>What does it take to train a disaster search dog? An awesome dog, 2,000 hours of training, a lot of commitment by the handler, as well as the dog and their training group, and successful completion of a nationally administered certification test. The test involves the dog searching two 15,000-square-foot rubble sites, finding completely buried live victims and ignoring distractions such as hamburgers, steak, clothing and dog toys. A false alert on anything except a live victim is an automatic failure.</p> <p>A handler may look at 20 to more than 100 dogs before finding a canine partner that has the qualities and drive to do this type of work. </p> <p>Once certified, the dog and handler are qualified to deploy to international, national or local disasters with a FEMA Urban Search & Rescue team such as our Task Force here in Phoenix -- AZ-TF1. <br>AZ-TF1, manned by Phoenix firefighters, has been deployed to disasters including The World Trade Center, Hurricanes Florence, Katrina, Rita, Ike, Harvey, Irma and the mudslide disaster in Oso, Washington. Phoenix Fire disaster search dogs are also used locally to find missing people. Over the past few years, these local searches have been conducted for a missing toddler, Alzheimer patient and injured hikers and have included search operations as far south as Sierra Vista or east in the Show Low area. </p> <p>AZ-Task Force1 is one of 28 National Urban Search and Rescue teams prepared to deploy in response to local and national disasters.  Task forces are located throughout the United States.  The AZ-TF1 canines are purchased through funds raised by the non-profit (501c3) organization Arizona Search Dogs.  For more information about the organization, click on the following link: <span style="text-decoration:underline;">http://www.arizonasearchdogs.co​m/meetthesearchdogs.htm</span> </p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/fireNewsfirePhoenix firefighter Mike Smith and his new canine search dog TallonFire#ArizonaSearchDogssearch, dogs, canine, firefighterMichelle Miller602-621-3038602-495-7398michelle.miller@phoenix.govPHXFire

Critical Incident Briefing: Officer-involved Shooting Near 39th Avenue and Thunderbird Roadhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/1950Police6/14/2021 4:45:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1950/Critical Incident Briefing Graphic Twitter.pnghttps://youtu.be/J8M-0r6lBHsCritical Incident Briefing: Officer-involved Shooting Near 39th Avenue and Thunderbird Road<div class="ExternalClass2CAE20D1C90B4948814488F4C82F0630"><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 released a Critical Incident Briefing (CIB) video that includes audio, visuals and information related to an officer-involved shooting (OIS) which occurred on May 30<sup>th</sup>, 2021, in the area of 39<sup>th</sup> Avenue and Thunderbird Road.</p><p>This incident started at approximately 5:08 p.m. when officers responded to a report of a violation of an order of protection in the area of 39<sup>th</sup> Avenue and Wood Drive. The caller, a teenager, reported their father had been served with an order of protection two weeks earlier, and was not allowed to be on the property. The teenager said he was currently near the front door.</p><p>When the first officer arrived at the residence, he immediately encountered the suspect, later identified as 42-year-old Adan Carlos. Carlos was armed with a handgun and pointed the weapon at the first arriving officer as the officer was exiting his car. The officer and Carlos exchanged gunfire, and Carlos was struck. </p><p>The second officer arrived as the officer-involved shooting was occurring. As the officer approached Carlos, he ordered him to get away from the gun, and Carlos slid the gun away. The officers were then able to approach Carlos and take him into custody</p><p>Once officers had Carlos detained, the began providing first aid. Phoenix Fire personnel arrived and transported him to nearby hospital for treatment. </p><p>Carlos fired six rounds during the officer involved shooting. The firearm used by Carlos was recovered at the scene, and an extra magazine for the handgun was located in his pocket.</p><p>One of the rounds fired by Carlos entered an occupied residence approximately ½ mile away. No one at that residence was injured.</p><p>Carlos remains hospitalized for his injuries.</p><p>During the investigation, it was learned that a vehicle registered to Carlos was found earlier in the day, burned at a nearby location. It was also learned that Carlos was involved in an armed robbery a few hours before this incident, where he forced someone at gunpoint to drive him around looking for someone. Carlos was eventually dropped off near the residence where the shooting occurred, and let the person drive away. </p><p>The officer involved in this incident is assigned to the Cactus Park Precinct of the Patrol Division. He 26 years old and has 2 years of service.</p><p>​There were no injuries to officers or any other community members.<br></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><span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">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.</span></p> </html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideo
