first_img July 17, 2020 SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Criminal Justice Reform,  Español,  Press Release,  Public Safety En el día de la fecha y para continuar con la promoción de las reformas significativas a las fuerzas del orden público, el Gobernador Tom Wolf promulgó un decreto que crea la Comisión Asesora Ciudadana de la Policía Estatal de Pennsylvania. Esto promueve en mayor medida las acciones tendientes a abordar la reforma de las fuerzas del orden público y la rendición de cuentas que anunció en junio y el primero de dos proyectos de ley de reforma policial que promulgó el martes.“Mi administración está comprometida a realizar reformas bipartitas en materia de justicia penal que sean justas e inclusivas y apoyen la seguridad pública”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “Mi decreto nos hace involucrar más en el abordaje de las fallas sistémicas que han creado inequidades y desconfianza en la ciudadanía respecto de las fuerzas del orden público. Espero que la comisión mejore la relación que existe entre la policía y las comunidades y que fortalezca la responsabilidad del personal de las fuerzas del orden público”.La creación de la comisión surgió de las inquietudes planteadas por los residentes y en conversaciones que el Gobernador Wolf mantuvo con miembros del Caucus Negro Legislativo de Pennsylvania y líderes de las comunidades negras en Philadelphia y Harrisburg tras la muerte de George Floyd mientras estaba bajo custodia de la policía de Minneapolis.El decreto indica que el compromiso y la participación de los ciudadanos son esenciales para ayudar al estado a asumir el compromiso de identificar las reformas necesarias a nivel sistema para promover la transparencia, la equidad y la rendición de cuentas que involucran a los organismos de las fuerzas del orden público estatal.El máximo objetivo de la nueva comisión es mejorar las prácticas policiales dentro de los organismos de las fuerzas del orden público bajo la jurisdicción del Gobernador mediante el análisis de los eventos y la realización de revisiones de políticas, prácticas y procedimientos. La comisión, establecida en la Oficina del Inspector General del Estado, estará compuesta por 15 miembros designados por el Gobernador, incluido un representante de cada una de las áreas geográficas de las tropas actuales de la Policía del Estado de Pennsylvania, y específicamente de las áreas de la jurisdicción principal de la Policía del Estado de Pennsylvania, y seis miembros más elegidos de la ciudadanía en general.La comisión estará presidida por el Subinspector General de Supervisión de las Fuerzas del Orden Público, un nuevo puesto y oficina en la Oficina del Inspector General del Estado para los cuales el estado está realizando una búsqueda a nivel general. Los solicitantes interesados pueden encontrar las ofertas de trabajo aquí.El Subinspector General supervisará al personal en cuanto a las investigaciones de presuntos fraudes, despilfarro, mala conducta y abuso dentro de los organismos de las fuerzas del orden público bajo la jurisdicción del Gobernador y actuará como Presidente de la nueva comisión.La comisión está autorizada para examinar los hallazgos de investigación internos de los organismos en cuestión relacionadas con acusaciones e incidentes respecto del uso de la fuerza y la acción policial basada en el prejuicio, incluidos los tiroteos que involucran a la policía y que resultan en lesiones o muerte de civiles, y para preparar un informe si fuera necesario.“Deseo que con la información de esta comisión, los organismos de las fuerzas del orden público estatales puedan servir como un modelo de excelencia en todo Pennsylvania y el país”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf.Lea el decreto aquí.View this information in English.center_img El Gobernador Wolf promulga un decreto para crear la Comisión Asesora Ciudadana de la Policía Estatal de Pennsylvanialast_img read more

Schmidt optimistic over Ross

first_imgJoe Schmidt is “quietly confident” tighthead prop Mike Ross will be fit in time to ease Ireland’s front-row injury crisis against South Africa. Press Association Ireland will launch their three-Test Guinness series against South Africa at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday, November 8, without at least 15 regulars missing through injury. James Cronin will miss the entire series with ankle trouble, compounding loosehead prop resources and adding to Jack McGrath’s workload with Cian Healy a long-term absentee. Schmidt admitted he had to resist the temptation to pull the likes of Ah You and Archer out of club action this weekend, believing they must sharpen up ahead of potential Test action. “Obviously Rodney Ah You is playing for Connacht against the Ospreys, and Stephen Archer will have some time at Munster,” he said. “Tadhg Furlong will play for Leinster and Declan Fitzpatrick for Ulster, those are our other options. “It’s a catch-22, because Nathan White was the starting prop at Connacht and has really dominated the starting time (and) Rodney needs the game time. “Tadhg Furlong certainly needs to play; he’s been sat behind Michael Bent. “Declan Fitzpatrick has been massively underplayed because he’s had a succession of injuries and Stephen Archer the same. “So it’s not a lot of rugby for those guys in the last two weeks to then have a week off and go into a Test match, it would be pretty difficult. “So we’re just going to hold our breath and hope that those guys come through okay and that we’ll have some options live from that group.” Stephen Archer and Rodney Ah You are standing by to cover Ross from the bench, but the duo boast just three caps and no Test starts between them. Schmidt lamented the “catch-22” of sending undercooked Archer, Ah You and further tightheads Declan Fitzpatrick and Tadhg Furlong into provincial action this weekend just a week away from facing the Springboks. “Nathan White sustained some tendon damage in his biceps in an incredibly innocuous event, but a frustrating one for both him and us,” said Schmidt of the Connacht prop now sidelined for 16 weeks. “He just caught a player running past him, and it was just the angle, just the way it happened; it’s just one of those things. “Mike Ross is progressing pretty well, so we are quietly confident. He’s taken part in some of the more static aspects of training. And he involves himself in some of the more static aspects of the game, so hopefully he comes through and can be involved in some of those. “Absolutely it’s a concern (that Ross has not played for a month). But Mike has been working really hard, in his defence. “There’s nothing like game conditions though, to bring game awareness. You want guys to have had that; you want it to be second nature, what they are doing. “If it was a perfect world things might different but you work in the world that’s available to you, and I’d still say it’s an incredibly exciting challenge to play one of the form teams in the world, and certainly one of the top-ranked.” Ireland boss Schmidt conceded it is a worry Ross has not featured in a month through groin trouble, but still backed the 34-year-old to cope against the Springboks next weekend. Connacht tighthead Nathan White had been lined up for his Test debut against South Africa, but suffered biceps tendon damage in a training clash on Thursday. last_img read more
