His death marked the first time in the history of the Pasadena Police Department that a sworn officer was killed in the line of duty.The public is invited to attend the dedication ceremony which is a joint effort between the Pasadena Police Department and Assemblymember Chris Holden (D-Pasadena) whose office passed a Resolution (ACR 170) authorizing the memorial sign. A section of the I-210 Freeway between Rosemead Blvd. and Allen Avenue will be called the Richard Morris Memorial Highway. Assemblymember Holden along with Pasadena Police Chief Phillip Sanchez, Pasadena City officials, Caltrans and members of the Morris family will be on hand at the ceremony. The public is invited to attend.At the time of the shooting, Agent Morris was part of an undercover team investigating an assault on another police officer. A struggle ensued when officers went to the suspect’s home and Agent Morris was shot by the suspect. He had been with the department for seven years.“At great personal risk Agent Morris engaged an armed suspect who clearly had violent intentions. After he was shot, Agent Morris was surrounded by his partners who risked their lives to save his, but in the end he did not survive. Agent Morris is gone but not forgotten. His warrior spirit lives on in our contemporary Pasadena Police Officers who continue to serve with honor, integrity and courage,” said Police Chief Sanchez.“This memorial was long-overdue,” Assemblymember Holden explained. “I was proud to lead the effort in the Legislature to add Agent Morris’ name to the list of those who died in service to the community.”* Agent Morris Memorial Sign Dedication* Friday, March 13 at 9:00 AM* Pasadena Police Department, 207 N. Garfield AvenueNo state funds are used for the memorial signs.

Beware: Section 21 is ‘biggest change to private rental market’ in a generation

first_imgHome » News » Beware: Section 21 is ‘biggest change to private rental market’ in a generation previous nextRegulation & LawBeware: Section 21 is ‘biggest change to private rental market’ in a generationLeading evictions specialist Paul Shamplina says removal of Section 21 from the Housing Act 1988 is biggest threat to landlords and letting agents ‘in years’.Nigel Lewis2nd August 20191 Comment1,381 Views A leading evictions specialist has warned that the removal of Section 21 of the Housing Act 1988 is the ‘biggest threat to landlords in years’ and that if it goes ahead, the number of Section 8 evictions will double and lead to chaos in the court system.Paul Shamplina of Landlord Action says the proposed reforms to Section 21 put forward by the previous Conservative Housing Secretary James Brokenshire will drive more landlords to leave the sector than previous policies.These include the additional stamp duty, the withdrawal of Section 24 mortgage interest relief or even the tenants fees ban.The consultation is asking for industry views on the removal of Section 21, improving section 8 eviction grounds and setting up a housing court.Shamplina says the Fair Possessions Coalition, which includes his company as well as ARLA Propertymark, Safe Agent and both landlord associations, has jointly filed a response to the Section 21 consultation opened by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government on 21st July.It says: “A thriving private rental market that provides choice for tenants hinges on landlords having confidence that they can regain possession of their property in a timely and efficient way.“At present, only Section 21 repossessions provide that certainty. It should be kept unless and until a new system is in place that provides landlords with the same level of certainty. The other routes currently available for repossessing properties do not meet this test.”Shamplina is urging all letting agents to complete the government’s consultation survey and have their say about ‘one of the biggest reforms of the private rental market’ for generations.paul shampllina Landlord Action August 2, 2019Nigel LewisOne commentJulian Blackmore, BNE BNE 2nd August 2019 at 9:36 amSince when has the government ever taken any notice of consultees? They just go through the process, ignore the result and continue with their one size fits all approach to people pleasing potential voters. This is another failure waiting to happen.Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion? Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.Please note: This is a site for professional discussion.
