The police from around the country and world train together and collaborate and, beginning this decade do so with private security firms as well.

The International Association of Police Chiefs provides a lot of training. Oddly, I was able to access this link and then I was forbidden. So, good luck. Give it a try. Good news
THE ANNUAL IAPC MEETING IS IN JANUARY, 2012 in SAN DIEGO! Occupy?
Welcome to IACP 2012
Join us in San Diego on September 29 - October 3, 2012 for the 119th Annual Conference and Exposition.
The International Association of Chiefs of Police has had a long reputation for providing top-notch education on the most pressing law enforcement topics of the day.
This year, IACP 2012 is your best opportunity to learn, network, and problem solve at a one-of-a-kind event dedicated specifically to law enforcement professionals.
With renowned keynote speakers, forums and technical workshops, and the largest exhibit hall of products and services in the law enforcement community, leaders from around the globe come together at the IACP Annual Conference to foster a continuing exchange of information and experience.
Will they discuss the OCCUPY MOVEMENT and Public Disorder at this years convention? You think?
Understanding this helps us to understand why we see the same police behaviors/equipment throughout the US and around the world. They train together. The same vendors are at these gatherings selling their wares.
It is good that police receive training and that they also do so internationally.
And it explains why there is so much similarity in behavior.
I think there are lots of stories that can be gleaned from this information. I wonder if the media is interested in reporting them.
This also answers the question about the NYPD working with Private Security firms. BUT DID YOU KNOW that the NYPD police can BE Private Security Guards, too? For the wealthy in NYC?
If you’re a Wall Street behemoth, there are endless opportunities to privatize profits and socialize losses beyond collecting trillions of dollars in bailouts from taxpayers. One of the ingenious methods that has remained below the public’s radar was started by the Rudy Giuliani administration in New York City in 1998. It’s called the Paid Detail Unit and it allows the New York Stock Exchange and Wall Street corporations, including those repeatedly charged with crimes, to order up a flank of New York’s finest with the ease of dialing the deli for a pastrami on rye.
The corporations pay an average of $37 an hour (no medical, no pension benefit, no overtime pay) for a member of the NYPD, with gun, handcuffs and the ability to arrest. The officer is indemnified by the taxpayer, not the corporation.
This is absolutely contrary to the purpose of government law enforcement. And it creates clear conflicts of interest, especially at a time when the NYPD is responding to protests against their benefactors.
I recommend reading the whole article. Over $11 million last year. Do the math.
Sorry for the ramble. But there is something very wrong and I wanted to get more eyes on this issue of the Department of Justice funding grants for the PDs and Private Security partnerships. Hope you can help.
