RUN - HIDE - FIGHT
Surviving an Active Shooter Event

The City of Houston has released a video designed to teach people how to react during a workplace shooting by emphasizing a three-word mantra: run, hide, fight. The video was funded with $200,000 in federal grants and was released following last month's movie theater shooting in Colorado. We hope that you will find this video instructive and helpful in both your work environment and your everyday life. Please feel free to forward this around as you see fit to inform others in your company or those close to you.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5VcSwejU2D0&feature=youtu.be

This is a short very informative video regarding "active shooter" scenario!
This might apply to you or someone you know in your family or workplace.
It is better to be prepared than caught by surprise! Please pass along to your family & friends!


 







Local Law Enforcement Agencies Need Your Help

The State Police and the Taos Police Department have recovered numerous items they believe to have been stolen. These items were recovered during traffic stops of known burglary suspects or from persons with suspicious property which these persons could not account for.

The police agencies are asking for any citizen that has recently been burglarized to make a police report so that the recovered items may by identified and returned to the rightful owners. The police have construction tools, jewelry, household electronics and other property.

To make a claim for any recovered item, the owner must be able to prove ownership. The owner must supply proof with receipts, serial numbers, or a photo inventory list to make identification possible and have the property returned.

Take time now to make sure that you can provide proof of ownership for all of your possessions. Proof can be provided with sales receipts, a written list of inventory items with descriptions and serial numbers, photos or videos of your property items. The rightful owner must be able to identify their own property from that of their neighbors.
