STATE FARM™ grant helps DRIVE SMART COLORADO
spread the word about marijuana and driving with the new
Fatal Vision Marijuana Simulation Experience
DRIVE SMART COLORADO, a community traffic safety education program based in Colorado Springs since 1989, is pleased to announce that State Farm has awarded a $25,000.00 grant to purchase new educational tools in traffic safety. DRIVE SMART COLORADO currently works in eight Colorado counties educating the public on a variety of traffic safety issues such as the importance of wearing seat belts, car seat education, distracted and impaired driving, safe teen driving, and older driver issues.
The recently purchased traffic safety tools include The Fatal Vision Marijuana Simulation Experience Kits which provide different activities to help DRIVE SMART COLORADO educate our community about the potential dangers that can result from recreational marijuana use. These six evidence-based interactive activities provide an experience of cognitive impairments associated with recreational marijuana use and allow program participants to experience the modeled effects of distorted processing of visual information and alteration of visual perception, slower decision making, and loss of short-term memory.

Additionally, AIM® (Awareness In Motion) Distracted Driving Lenticular Posters have been purchased and will be distributed to each of the area high schools that participate in the DRIVE SMART High School Traffic Safety Challenge that takes place each fall. DRIVE SMART COLORADO will be using these 20" x 28" crowd-stopping posters to catch people’s attention and send a message about the dangers of distracted driving. This poster uses lenticular lens technology to put into motion an all-too-common occurrence of a texting driver and the tragic consequences that can result. At first glance, the driver appears to face no immediate danger and believes to have complete control of their vehicle. A slight shift in your viewing angle shows a tragedy about to occur.
Lesson learned – there is no text message or cell phone call that is worth a serious injury or fatality!
Traffic fatalities are preventable and with the support from State Farm, DRIVE SMART COLORADO will continue its mission to reduce traffic-related injuries and deaths through community education.

MORE THAN 1,000 SUSPECTED CHILD SEX PREDATORS ARRESTED DURING OPERATION BROKEN HEART

WASHNGTON—Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Forces arrested 1,012 suspected child predators from more than 40 states during a two-month nationwide operation following the investigation of more than 69,000 cases, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) announced today.

The arrests marked the end of Operation Broken Heart, a coordinated investigative operation to intensify efforts to identify and arrest suspected child sexual predators during April and May 2017. The 61 ICAC Task Forces, funded through OJJDP grants, comprise more than 4,500 federal, state and local, and tribal law enforcement agencies that participated in the operation.

“As technology and social media evolve, predators are quick to figure out how they can use these new tools to reach—and exploit—our children,” said OJJDP Acting Administrator Eileen M. Garry. “Our greatest strength on this ever-changing battlefield is the partnerships we have with federal, state, and local agencies. Our combined efforts across jurisdictional, state, and even national boundaries make both the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force program and Operation Broken Heart effective.”

The operation targeted suspects who: (1) possess, manufacture and distribute child pornography; (2) engage in online enticement of children for sexual purposes; (3) engage in the commercial sexual exploitation or prostitution of children; and (4) engage in child sex tourism—traveling abroad for the purpose of sexually abusing children in other countries. ICAC Task Forces first conducted Operation Broken Heart in 2014.

The task forces also delivered 1,245 presentations on Internet safety to more than 99,000 youth and adults during these two months.

In 1998, OJJDP launched the ICAC Task Force Program to help federal, state and local law enforcement agencies enhance their investigative responses to offenders who use the Internet, online communication systems or computer technology to exploit children. To date, ICAC Task Forces have reviewed 705,963 complaints of child exploitation, which resulted in the arrest of 75,688 individuals. In addition, since the ICAC program's inception, 585,604 law enforcement officers, prosecutors and other professionals have been trained on techniques to investigate and prosecute ICAC-related cases.

The Office of Justice Programs, headed by Acting Assistant Attorney General Alan R. Hanson, provides federal leadership in developing the nation’s capacity to prevent and control crime, administer justice and assist victims. OJP has six bureaus and offices: the Bureau of Justice Assistance; the Bureau of Justice Statistics; the National Institute of Justice; the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention; the Office for Victims of Crime; and the Office of Sex Offender Sentencing, Monitoring, Apprehending, Registering and Tracking (SMART).

Title
100 N. Tejon Street
Location
During the week of July 12, 2017, CSPD officers responded to a counterfeit currency incident in which counterfeit new $100 bills (Serial #LB23104201U) were passed at several businesses downtown. On the front and back of this counterfeit bill were several pink stamps of Chinese symbols. The person who passed these bills was unaware that these bills were counterfeit, therefore no one was arrested.

Detectives from the Financial Crimes Unit searched the serial number listed on this counterfeit $100 bill. There have been several CSPD cases [documented this year] in which $100 counterfeit bills (containing this same serial number and Chinese symbols) have been passed.
The Secret Service was later notified. Agents from the Secret Service are aware of these counterfeit $100 bills in several additional cities and states.

Several U.S. Post Offices in Colorado Springs recently received several counterfeit older generation $100 bills containing the same pink Chinese Stamps. The Secret Service advised that these counterfeit bills containing these pink Chinese symbols come from Japan and China and are sold as novelty notes on the internet.
