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.

Measurement of stress levels may be flawed

first_imgMeasurement of stress levels may be flawedOn 1 Feb 2002 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article How organisations measure stress levels and their impact on the health ofworkers may be flawed, a study commissioned by the HSE has found. The review, the first ever carried out by the HSE on measures of workplacestressors, found the amount and quality of evidence on different measures waslimited. There was only sufficient evidence available to provide a detailedanalysis of five of the 25 common stress measures used in UK organisations. Even where good evidence was available, it tended to be inconsistent andunreliable and there was an almost complete lack of evidence on theirpredictive power. This, said the team from the Institute for Employment Studies and BirkbeckCollege, London, was particularly worrying because this was the main purpose ofsuch measures. It warned that stress measures therefore may not be accurately measuring theaspects of the work environment that lead to ill-health. This meant that organisations could be focusing on changing aspects of theworkplace that were not necessarily harmful and failing accurately to diagnosereal stresses. More information was needed on the reliability and validity of existingstress measures, the study, A critical review of psychological hazard measures,concluded. www.hse.gov.uk Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more
