The Community Awareness of Policing Program (CAPP) is a first for law enforcement agencies in Australia.

Developed by the NSW Police Force Customer Service Program, CAPP is providing the leaders of our communities with a unique and unprecedented insight into policing in NSW.

Participants spend a number of evenings and/or days in Sydney and a day at the police college in Goulburn learning about and participating in elements of policing never before experienced by members of the general public, including:

Local Area Command

The Public Order & Riot Squad

Marine Area Command

Tactical Operations Unit

Counter Terrorism & Special Tactics

Education & Training Command

State Crime Command

Forensic Services Group

Police Prosecutions

Communications Group

State Protection Group

Commissioner Andrew Scipione APM talks about CAPP: “Participants also see and take part in aspects of weapons and officer survival training. They interact with police from these commands, from constables to commanders, and through realistic exercises are put in the shoes of these officers as they respond to public order incidents, investigate crime scenes, direct maritime search & rescue missions and face armed offenders. In return, these leaders are encouraged to pass on to members of their communities word of what they have seen, heard and done.”

    Here is a legitimate question:

    Yair Miller can model whatever big toys he wants, but where was he last Tuesday when SBS – the ones we criticise for treating the Jewish community unmfairly – presented “Insight” !!?? NOT ONE of the numerous local Jewish legitimate leaders had the courage to represent our community while a complete team of anti Israeli anti Jewish rumblers were having a field day in the studio, with the exception of Michael Harzog, the brave Israeli who fronted up in the studio.
    As it happened, the ONLY local Jewish….leader was Larry Stillman. As far as the ordinary punter out there is concerned, Larry Stillman DID represent the Australian Jewish community simply by the FACT that he WAS there.To the ordinary John “Jewish Democratic Nonsense etc. ” sounds Jewish enough and the bloke had a clear Aussie accent, so he must have been the real stuff !!
    I have it from VERY reliable first hand sources that the leaders of the Jewish communities in Australia WERE invited by SBS but they DECLINED. Obviously sailing the treacherous waters of Sydney Harbour in that big toy, or leaning on an alpha male awesome truck does a lot more for image, substance notwithstanding….
    Photo opportunities make for some model of a President, but how about modelling communal responsibility and being seen in REALLY important places and saying something of relevance and leadership inspiration in-between organising some David Landau to address some “intimate” gathering at the Board of Deputies !!!

    This is a serious and valid commnent, one which cannot be discarded, not that I expect any of our leaders to face up to my criticism….

    So far in this comic interlude contest: JWire 1 – Otto 0.

    How about we all remember the famous: “By your Mum you are a Captain, by your Dad you are a captain, by YOU you are a Captain, by a Captain you ain’t a Captain !!!”

    Please Henry, IT IS OK, NOT everything must be taken seriously !!
