    This week John Picker, the DNA Board member who Chairs the Public Safety committee, met with the Savannah Police Department  to review the crime data displayed on the DNA website.  The stats revealed minimal violent crime that was not a result of either a family dispute or situations where individuals knew each other.  Crimes against property are mostly crimes of opportunity and a result of items   being left in the open.  Please don’t leave items unprotected, or cars unlocked, with valuables visible.

     Also discussed was SPD procedures, and policies, in light of current protests and activism.  The previous Chief, Joseph Lumpkin, adopted much, if not all, of the Obama task force on Policing for 21st Century.  

    The SPD shared the below information with us so that we are aware of their policies.

    "8 Can’t Wait"

    With the nationwide call to action to address use of force policies in law enforcement, the Savannah Police Department became aware of the “8 Can’t Wait” campaign. After reviewing the policy adoptions proposed by the campaign, Savannah Police was found to be in compliance. Despite the recently announced suspension of the Bilateral Neck Restraint Technique, these policies have been in place at SPD for years.

    The Savannah Police Department is committed to the mission of not only protecting but serving the community. This commitment requires the implementation of policies that uphold SPD’s ethics and reduces use of force incidents with community members. SPD will continue training proper verbal and physical-de-escalation strategies to officers and continue evaluating policies to align them with best practices in this area.

    The information below illustrates SPD’s policies on each proposal addressed by the campaign. Complete copies of relevant policies are available upon request.

    1.  Ban chokeholds and strangle holds       

         Neither technique is allowed by SPD policy.

    2.  Require de-escalation training                      

          All officers are trained in verbal and physical de-escalation training.     

    3.  Require a warning before shooting

       Our policy states, “A verbal warning will be issued prior to the discharge      of a firearm, if practical.”

    4.  Exhaust all other means before shooting        

         Officers receive training in verbal de-escalation and conflict resolution       and are required to use the amount of force that reasonably appears           necessary.

    5.  Duty to intervene

    Any officer present and observing another officer using force that is clearly beyond that which is objectively reasonable under the circumstances shall, when in a position to do so, intercede. SPD policy also requires that an officer who observes another employee using force that is beyond reasonable under the circumstances promptly report those observations to a supervisor.
    The SPD Oath of Office, Ethics and Conduct Policy states “any employee that observes serious misconduct will take appropriate action to cause the misconduct to immediately cease regardless of rank.”

    6.  Ban shooting at moving vehicles     

    An Officer WILL NOT discharge a firearm at the occupants of a vehicle (moving or stationary) or from a moving vehicle, except in self-defense or the defense of another.
    Officers WILL NOT discharge a firearm at a moving vehicle in an attempt to disable the vehicle.

    7.  Require use of force continuum         

    SPD does not follow a specific continuum for use of physical force as Officers are to operate under state and Federal law which is defined as, “a reasonable amount force and/or   amount of force to affect the arrest.”

    8.  Require comprehensive reporting

    After any use of force by a member of the department, a supervisor shall be notified, and it shall be documented promptly. All use of force incidents are reviewed by a Precinct Commander or above.

    Downtown group opposed to STVR bill

    The members of the Savannah Downtown Neighborhood Association stand opposed to House Bill 523, which seeks to prohibit Georgia municipalities from regulating in any way short-term vacation rentals, commonly referred to as STVRs.

    As many are aware, Savannah enacted an STVR ordinance in 2014. The ordinance was revised through protracted negotiations involving stakeholders from all sides of the STVR issue. It fairly addresses the needs of all stakeholders and provides a predictable roadmap for managing STVR development.

    HB 523 would have this agreement invalidated and removed. It eliminates local control of a purely local issue and changes the future course of the City of Savannah and the rights of its citizens and local government to determine what is in the best interest of their community.

    Should HB 523 be signed into law there would be no restrictions on the number of residential units bought and converted into a STVR. We have already started seeing homes being developed, marketed and sold as potential STVR investment property. These sales remove from the marketplace housing that could be available for longer-term renters from the local workforce and raises the cost of homeownership, therefore pricing homes far above what young families can afford.

    Additionally, the bill eliminates all oversight and inspection from the city on any STVR property. This issue alone is enough to concern any reasonable public safety official. We ask you to think about the potential for overcrowding, as STVR owners typically charge per bed, resulting in overcrowded homes and the potential lack of fire safety systems. The potential for loss of life is one potential result of this elimination of home rule for Savannah.

    We are asking our state legislators to oppose HB 523 and instead support home rule for the city of Savannah and the demands of its citizens.
