Assignment 2: Crime Alert Bulletin
Prepare a 3-5 page crime alert bulletin for patrol officers pertaining to the incident described below. You will entitle the bulletin “Extra Surveillance.” Feel free to reference the crime alter bulletin samples in Course Documents and use them as a starting point when creating your document.
Ask officers to attempt to locate and/or identify the offending vehicle, and report any information about possible suspects back to your office or to the detective in charge of the case (you can make one up).
You would of course need to include your identifying information such as title, phone number, and e-mail address (you can make these items up). Be creative but succinct; officers like concise information in an easy-to-read format.
Date and Place
11/1/2010, 15:35, 1500 Main Street, Liverton, IL
Tim McMurray, 10/20/1999, Male/White, 5’3, 115 pounds, 234 Lincoln Street, Liverton, IL
Unidentified, Male/White, approximately 25 years of age, scruffy facial hair, shaggy brown hair, and dirty appearance; last seen wearing a red flannel shirt, blue jeans, and black tennis shoes.
On 11/1/2010, McMurray was walking home from school when he was approached on foot, from behind, by the suspect. The suspect asked McMurray, “Kid, which way to the hospital?” As McMurray started to give the suspect directions, the suspect attempted to grab McMurray in a bear-hug. McMurray was able to fight his attacker, kneeing him in the groin area. While the suspect was incapacitated momentarily, McMurray fled southbound on Main Street; he looked back to see the suspect get into the passenger side of a blue Chevrolet Camaro, unknown license plate. McMurray did notice red paint transfer on the passenger quarter panel and a dent in the same area. He did not see the driver clearly, but believed it was a woman, after catching a glimpse of someone with long blond hair behind the steering wheel. The vehicle made a U-turn and traveled northbound on Main Street. McMurray continued to flee to a friend’s home in the area he was in, where he immediately telephoned police.
