Anyone know what came out of the federal investigation in response to the killing of Officer Jayme Biendl?

Shakey you are absolutely correct in your post.

Not to ridicule or throw blame as this is the potential of the job we do every day. The risks are real and in place 24/7, anyone who thinks the offenders we’re in charge of are there for your entertainment and you feel comfortable around them needs to re evaluate. The best defense is to stay aware of your surroundings and know where your partners (co-workers) are. We watch each others back so we can continue doing what we do for family, friends and the community.
The best defense we can do for ourselves is to stay alert, keep physically fit and if you can form a sparring program with your co-workers for your off time workouts. We only get one training session per year in defensive tactics and unless you work on a post that requires continued use of force practices, proficiency is non existent. When it comes to a life threatening situation, you have the right to defend yourself. Job site training is not enough, offenders will use anything and everything as a weapon against us. In closing, you do what you have to to stay alive. This job is not worth dieing for.

.Rest in peace Jayme Biendl and may lord take your hand of and walk you thru those heavenly gates and show you the everlasting joys within.
I just love the way administration always back peddles and seem so concerned about our safety and how they never knew that there was a problem in those areas of concern. We’ve had situations where a couple of officers and staff members were seriously hurt or murdered over the last few years, Officers are like “hey, we have a problem with this situation here, can we get this fixed” and it’s always " oh, it’s ok” or “nothing going to happen". only after the officer or staff member gets hurt. or as in a couple of those cases murdered, will they jump up and try to fix it, well at least for a little while that is.
After one staff member was murdered, they implemented the two man (woman) theory, where you had to have another staff member/officer with you at all times or at least have a visual on you. After budget cuts and a couple of years later, it was replaced back to the way it was before, because they now conceder the man down system (which we have carried even before the incident occurred ) as another person, so we are just as well protected as before. (Even if sometimes the system can’t properly locate you and you have officers running around the area, yelling your name to find you???)
It breaks my heart that we have to lose officers because of budget cuts or just plain mismanagement. Is it not bad enough that we have to deal with the criminal master minds and outcast from our communities, because of their social inequities or evil ways . The only resources we have to work with, is our training and equipment both which are somewhat outdated or useless but we also have to be guided by inept, narcissistic leaders and officials that have no real understanding of the jobs we do and are in it only for personal or political gain.

Deepest sympathy to her family, friends and co-workers. Her murder has been a hot topic on sites that aren’t even related to corrections.
