        observed the suspect pull out a small black semi auto handgun.  When the
        employee asked if he was going to shoot him, the suspect stated he now
        knew his face and would come back. Suspect desc: M/B, late 30's, 5'10",
        180  Vehicle: Mid '80's, (possibly Buick), maroon, 4dr, poor condition,
        possible first 3 digits of plate "CH6".

        Traffic incidents can be extremely dangerous encounters.  Don't engage
        a driver who exhibits aggressive behavior toward you.  Avoid responding
        with antagonistic behavior including "flipping" the person off,
        tailgating and slamming on your brakes.  You have no way of knowing if
        the other driver is armed with a dangerous weapon.  A better response is
        to create distance between your vehicle and the other driver by slowing
        down, changing lanes or turning off onto another road.  If the other
        driver continues to follow you, call the police (if you have a cell
        phone) or drive to an open store or gas station and ask the clerk to
        call the police.

        Stolen Christmas Lawn Ornament Recovered
        On 11/30, a resident of Acewood Blvd reported that their 8 foot high
        inflatable snowman had been stolen during the night.  While checking the
        area around his house, the resident found the stakes from the snowman
        and a wallet belonging to a 16 year old boy who lived a few blocks away.
         The officer contacted the boy, who admitted to the theft and returned
        the snowman. 

        Vending Machine Break Ins

        Det. Michelle Riesterer met with representatives from various vending
        machine businesses to discuss the ongoing problem occurring city-wide
        with vending machines being broken into and the coin boxes removed.
        (This cost the businesses in excess of $300,000 in damages and losses).
        She also became the "go to" person for pulling together information from
        the numerous cases and provided necessary information and updates to
        Patrol Officers leading to the eventual apprehension of the primary
        suspect.   Great job Michelle. 

        Traffic Enforcement

        On 11/26, traffic officers did speeding enforcement on 5100 block of
        Commercial between 7:20 am and 8:20 am.  During that hour, 13 citations
        were issued.

        October traffic enforcement in the East District by traffic officers is
        attached.  It is a Word document.

        Madison Police Policy and Procedure Manual

        If you have ever wondered about the policies and procedures that the
        Madison Police Department sets for its employees, you can now look at
        our policy manual on line.  The topics it covers includes: how we must
        dress when on duty, how we must act when on duty (and in some cases when
        off duty), when we can use force and how much force can be used, how we
        conduct certain investigations and how we respond when our employees are
        affected by traumatic incidents.  These are only a few of the policies
        and procedures.  You can look at our policy manual by going to
        www.cityofmadison.com. Click on "Agencies".  Then click on "Police"
        in the list on the left side.  Look for the Policy Manual in the list on
        the left side of our webpage.

        It's That Time of Year Again

        Every year, all commissioned employees take part in a re-assignment
        process.  Captains and Lieutenants, who are not members of the police
        union, serve at the pleasure of the Chief.  Each Fall, the Chief
        determines where each Captain and Lieutenant will work for the following

        For the East District, it has been determined that I will continue to
        serve as the Captain and Lieutenant Tom Snyder will continue to be in
        charge of the patrol operations.  Detective Lieutenant Sandy Theune has
        been re-assigned to the North District Detectives.  Her replacement in
        East District will be Lieutenant Sherrie Strand.  Sherrie had previously
        been the Officer in Charge of the night shift.  Thanks to Sandy for her
        dedicated work to the East District and welcome to Sherrie.

        The remaining commissioned personnel are members of the police union
        and their re-assignment is governed by contract.

        Detectives are allowed to pick their shift by seniority and express an
        interest in a specialty (the type of crime they investigate).  The
        detective assignments are made primarily by seniority, but we also
        consider the detective's skills and the needs of the Department.

        We will be adding one detective to our East District, bringing the
        total number of East Detectives to eight.  Four of our current
        detectives will be returning next year and four will be new to our

        Patrol Sergeants and officers pick their assignments by seniority.
        They are able to select the District they work in, the shift they work,
        the beat they ride and their day off rotation.  Patrol sergeants and
        officers work 6 days with 3 days off.  Obviously, the lower in seniority
        the officer is, the fewer choices they have in each of these areas.
        These assignments were made last week and will go into effect on Jan.

        The Darbo Neighborhood Officer will also change in January.  Many of
        you may be familiar with the current officer, Denise Markham.  Denise
        will be returning to patrol in the South District.  She will be replaced
        by Officer Greg Rossetti.  Greg has worked in the East District on the
        evening shift in the Darbo area and will also be able to provide
        exceptional service to this neighborhood.

        Officer Anh Sweeney will continue as the Educational Resource Officer
        assigned to LaFollette High School.

        In January, I will provide a list of the East District Personnel and
        their assignments.  I can assure you that once again the East District
        enjoys an exceptionally talented and dedicated group of sergeants,
        detectives and officers.

        That's all for now.  Hope your holidays are wonderful.
        Be careful.  Be safe.
