Washington County Sheriff Taser Training - April 2011
Remember these guys and gals endured this harsh pain to qualify to carry a taser the actually prevents serious injury to non-compliant offenders.
Just be glad your job does not require you to do this:
1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do : The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do!
2. Learned this from a tourist guide. If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you. Chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you, and he will go for the wallet/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!
3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy. The driver won't see you, but everybody else will. This has saved lives.
4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc. DON'T DO THIS!) The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR , LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE.. If someone is in the car
with a gun to your head DO NOT DRIVE OFF, Repeat: DO NOT DRIVE OFF! Instead gun the engine and speed into anything, wrecking the car. Your Air Bag will save you. If the person is in the back seat they will get the worst of it . As soon as the car crashes bail out and run. It is better than having them find your body in a remote location.
5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:
A.) Be aware: look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor, and in the back seat
B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.
C.) Look at the car parked on the driver's side of your vehicle, and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)
6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot. (This is especially true at NIGHT!)
7. If the predator has a gun and you do not, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; and even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN, Preferably in a zig -zag pattern!
8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked 'for help' into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.
9. Another Safety Point: Someone just told me that her friend heard a crying baby on her porch the night before last, and she called the police because it was late and she thought it was weird.. The police told her 'Whatever you do, DO NOT open the door..' The lady then said that it sounded like the baby had crawled near a window, and she was worried that it would crawl to the street and get run over. The policeman said, 'We already have a unit on the way, whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.' He told her that they think a serial killer has a baby's cry recorded and uses it to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby. He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that they hear baby's cries outside their doors when they're home alone at night.
10. Water scam! If you wake up in the middle of the night to hear all your taps outside running or what you think is a burst pipe, DO NOT GO OUT TO INVESTIGATE! These people turn on all your outside taps full blast so that you will go out to investigate and then attack.
Stay alert, keep safe, and look out for your neighbors!

We are now accepting donations and annual sponsorships to help fund our yearly operating expenses.
Though our reward fund is flush with $40,000 in it, our operations fund is near empty due to rising fixed costs, decreasing probationary fee income, and a change in operational funding policies from the Texas Governor’s Office. Our program was just recognized by Governor Perry with a signed certificate noting our 26th year in operation, and we just completed our program certification good through 2012. For over a quarter of a century we have been operating a program for tipsters to provide information which helps both Brenham Police Department (BPD) and Washington County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) arrest offenders and convict criminals.
There are three ways for informers to safely convey critical information in a very timely and consistent manner. The first is our tip line of 979.836.TIPS that is professionally manned 24/7/365. They can also send in tips via our website BrenhamCrimeStoppers.com or even Text the information from the cellular phones directly to our TipSoft system. Each of these delivery systems immediately relays the tips to our law enforcement coordinator Investigator Damon Wagner of the WCSO directly to his Apple iPhone. Our program receives an average of 3-4 tip calls a week concerning stolen property, assaults, fugitives, and especially illegal drug activity. Because of the reasons mentioned above our budget has developed a yearly $2,000 deficit. The operational fund that keeps the infrastructure going is near empty and we are reaching out to other organizations for financial assistance.

The Purpose of Crime Stoppers
Crime Stoppers is not a law enforcement organization.
It is a civilian, non-profit Corporation established within a community to set up a Hotline to receive anonymous tips about criminal activity or wanted felons.
Tips received by Crime Stoppers are passed along to the law enforcement agency with the jurisdiction and responsibility for investigating the crime being reported.
