FROM BOB MOIR:
The passing of Phil Norton is another loss of the "old time" San Jose Police Dept Phil was a man of many hats. A lieutenant at the SJPD.  President of the San Jose Police Officers Association (SJPOA)  A successful member of the State Bar Association and a practicing attorney as well as a dedicated husband, family man and father.  What more can you say about a life well lived and remembered.  Sure there were riots on Virginia and King....but remember, the cops always won.  There were cars torched, windows broken. heads bloodied and arrests of malcontents given a trip down to Laurie Smiths "hotel", but in the end a cop that wore numerous hats of the day .... and the cops always won.  Phil was an unusual multitalented individual.  Well respected as a Sgt and Lieutenant as well as the elected President of the POA ensuring the rights of the rank and file officer were protected. Although he was limited in mobility and was assisted in his "scooter" his mind was "sharp" and the SJPD was in a better place due to the efforts set forth during his tenure and dedication to the  membership .       
RIP Buddy

While the C-5 was turning over its engines, a female crewman gave the G.I.s on board the usual   
information regarding seat belts, emergency exits, etc .
 

Finally, she said, 'Now sit back and enjoy your trip while your captain, Judith Campbell, and crew take you safely to Afghanistan '
 

An old MSgt. sitting in the eighth row thought to himself,
 

'Did I hear her right? Is the captain a woman? '
 

When the attendant came by he said 'Did I understand you right? Is the captain a woman?'
 

'Yes,'! said the attendant, 'In fact, this entire crew is female.'
 

 

'My God,' he said, 'I wish I had two double scotch and sodas. I don't know what to think with only women up there in the cockpit.'

'Oh That's another thing, Sergeant,' said the crew member, 
'We No Longer Call It The Cockpit'

'It's The Box Office.'

The P.M.S. Co's steamer Northerner arrived on Friday night in San Francisco. "The Countess of Landsfeldt," or, more generally known as the "Divine Lola" was a passenger on the Northerner. She comes unheralded, yet her arrival has produced great excitement among the "quid nuncs" of the Union Saloon. We hear that she will immediately enter upon her professional career.

In recognition of National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week (4/14 - 4/20/2019) we want to to thank our SJPD Dispatchers. We appreciate you this week and every day of the year for what you do . Following is a Dispatcher Poem that captures so much ....

“You don’t know who I am; to you I am just a voice.
It was me who took your frantic call, when you had no other choice.
I spend many hours waiting, to help when you’re in need.
“Send help to me, please get them here is often what you plead.
To do my job is complex, but only a few tools are a must.
Put your faith in me, I am the one that you can trust.
My ears are a necessity; my mouth a mighty sword.
I must use my ears to listen, and then choreograph every word.
I am the protector of this land; I take pride in what I do.
I am here to listen and do what is best for you.
The day you place a call to me, might be the worst day you ever had.
At least today you know, I too was feeling sad.
I take your problems home with me, I know that’s not so good,
But as you felt your tragedy it was by your side I stood.
I walked with you to the door, to let them into help,
I guided you to safety, when all alone you felt.
It is not often we hear praise or even simple thanks,
But the cookies and cards are plenty through police and fire ranks.
The day you placed your call, and I picked up the phone
I hope I made you feel safe and showed you you’re not alone.
Remember who I am, I am not just a voice
I am the 911 Dispatcher you called when you had no other choice.”

By
Tracy Eldridge, Ret Dispatcher
Rochester, MA

!!!PLEASE SHARE!!! Hey everyone i want to take a moment to give some recognition to this man. Just a few moments ago Ashlee Paige and i were at chick fila on kroger center blvd. We were having a nice time eating and laughing. Ava grabbed a fry from the table and tried to eat it. Chesterfield County Police Officer King had just got there a few moments before and was waiting for his meal. We heard her coughing and realized she was choking. I picked her up from the high chair and acted quick patting her back. I saw Officer King standing by the door waiting for his meal. I ran to him with her asking for his help telling him she’s nit breathing and he saved her life. He took her and dislodged the fry and got her breathing again. Please give this officer some recognition for saving my daughter. I was crying i was so scared as was ashlee the first responders were quick and amazing with her. Thank you for your service to our community and i couldnt be any more grateful. Please have this man get recognized for his heroism.
