Captain Charisse Rivers, Chief over the Criminal Investigations Bureau at the Walton County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) recently graduated as a part of the 129th Administrative Officers Course (AOC) at Southern Police Institute (SPI). The SPI is located at the University of Louisville in Louisville, KY.  The AOC is an in-residence, accredited college level program that lasts for 12 weeks and is designed to develop informed, effective, ethically and technically competent law enforcement managers who are capable of assuming positions of leadership in their respective agencies.  Officers from all over the United States, as well as from countries such as Turkey, attended the course.  According to the Southern Police Institute, the diversity of class members “ensures that class members will leave the Southern Police Institute with a network of graduates that will provide an outstanding resource from which they can seek assistance for organizational problems throughout their careers.”  The motto of the 129th Administrative Officer’s Course was “Ancora Imparo”.  This translates various ways, but really means, “And Still, We Learn”.

Shelby Reacts to CFTC IG Report on MF Global

Written by Eddie Lewis

 

WASHINGTON, DC, Tuesday, May 21, 2013 – Pursuant to a request by U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), a senior member of the Banking Committee, the Inspector General (IG) for the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) today issued a report regarding the agency’s oversight and regulation of failed investment firm MF Global.

 

The CFTC’s fundamental regulatory responsibility in overseeing firms such as MF Global is to protect investors.  Yet in the aftermath of MF Global’s collapse, $1.6 billion in segregated customer funds went missing.  The IG report responds to a range of questions posed by Shelby relating to the CFTC’s coordination with the Chicago Mercantile Exchange in overseeing customer segregated accounts at MF Global; the CFTC’s activities during the week prior to the liquidation; and CFTC Chairman Gary Gensler’s decision to recuse himself.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Martha Roby confirmed today that feared cuts to the Army Aviation Center of Excellence at Fort Rucker, Alabama will be averted thanks to a restoration of funds under the Army’s recently-authorized ability to better prioritize its budget.

 

In March, Congress passed and the President signed into law a measure funding the government, officially known as the Consolidated and Further Appropriations Act of 2013. Rep. Roby and many of her colleagues pushed to include language in that measure to provide greater flexibility to the Department of Defense in implementing sequestration cuts.

 

“This is wonderful news for Fort Rucker and the vital training mission it so ably executes,” Rep Roby said. “One of the worst aspects of sequestration is its arbitrary nature. When we passed the Consolidated and Further Appropriations Act, we included language aimed at allowing commanders to set priorities and adjust their budgets accordingly. I am pleased to know that this flexibility has been utilized, and that cuts to the Army Aviation Center of Excellence at Fort Rucker have been averted.”

A group of deputies with the Walton County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) recently attended a three day bike patrol course in South Walton.  Members of the WCSO POP (Problem Oriented Policing) Squad were chosen for the class and were trained in various riding techniques and scenarios involving obstacles which test both the technical aspects, as well as judgment skills of the riders.  A written exam was also administered.  Deputies logged in over 26 miles during the training, riding along the major highways and by-ways.  Trainers from local law enforcement agencies facilitated the training.

Roby Leads Bi-partisan CODEL to Afghanistan

Written by Eddie Lewis

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Monday, U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-AL) returned from a four-day Congressional Delegation (CODEL) to the Middle East, including her third visit to Afghanistan. Roby, who chairs the House Armed Services Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee, led a bi-partisan delegation of female Members of Congress to evaluate and promote the role of Afghan women.

A photo gallery of the trip can be viewed on Rep. Roby’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.651747398184973.1073741827.174519582574426&type=3.

Members of the Boys and Girls Club stopped by to chat with Sheriff Adkinson on Thursday to express their appreciation for his dedication to the field of law enforcement, and to the young people in the community.  He was presented with a thank you card by the organization and those visiting had their photo made with the top law enforcement officer in the county.  Sheriff Adkinson then invited his guests to take a tour of the Agency and get a behind the scenes look into a day in the life of a WCSO employee.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The House Committee on Agriculture last night advanced a new five-year Farm Bill that included reforms championed by U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-AL).

 

“I am proud of the work Chairman Lucas and Ranking Member Peterson put in to help create a much needed Farm Bill for our nation’s farmers,” Rep. Roby said.  “By consolidating duplicative programs, cutting waste, and reforming the nutrition title, this bill meets our country’s agriculture needs while also including past due conservative reforms.”
