Antisipasi Teror, British Transport Police Hadirkan Petugas Bersenjata Laras Panjang

first_imgPaul Crowther, selaku Kepala BTP mengatakan penempatan para petugas bersejnata tersebut masih terfokus pada jalur kereta yang menghubungkan kota-kota besar. “Ini merupakan sebuah tindak pencegahan dan aksi pengamanan nyata terhadap serangan teroris yang bisa saja menyerang jaringan transportasi,” Ungkap Paul.Pertama kali, para petugas bersenjata laras panjang ini turut dalam Virgin Trains tujuan London Euston menuju Birmingham New Street pada Kamis (25/5/2017) siang. Crowther berharap, kehadiran para petugas bersenjata tersebut dapat meningkatkan keamanan di kereta. “Kami dapat memastikan kereta dalam kondisi yang aman,” tutur Crowther. “Petugas bersenjata tersebut dapat dengan mudah dicari, namun bukan berarti kehadiran mereka di kereta malah menambah ketakutan bagi para penumpang,”tambahnya.Paul juga meminta pada para penumpang agar tidak khawatir dengan kehadiran petugas bersenjata di perjalanan mereka. “Mereka hanyalah petugas biasa yang bersahabat, kehadiran mereka pun di-plot untuk bisa berinteraksi dengan khalayak ramai agar mereka bisa mensosialisasikan tentang masalah yang seolah menjadi santapan sehari-hari,” pungkasnya.Sejak pemerintah mengoperasikan Operation Temperer, BTP mendapat keuntungan dengan penyertaan petugas bersenjata laras panjang dari Kementerian Kepolisian dan Pertahanan, yang akan ditempatkan di sejumlah stasiun di London. Dibalik itu semua, Paul bersikeras bahwa BTP tidak memiliki intelijen spesifik terkait ancaman terhadap jaringan kereta api, namun meminta masyarakat untuk tetap waspada.Sejalan dengan Paul, Chief Executive dari Rail Delivery Group, Paul Plummer memuji langkah yang diambil oleh pihak BTP dalam mengentaskan tindak terorisme yang  diusung-usung sudah menjadi ancaman nasional Inggris tersebut. “Walaupun sudah ada polisi, semua orang yang berada di jaringan kereta api dihimbau untuk tetap waspada.” tutupnya.Sumber: KapanLagi.comBerbeda dengan di Indonesia, kehadiran polisi bersenjata api di kereta bukanlah dalam rangka untuk mengamankan penumpang pasca tindak terorisme, melainkan untuk mengamankan keamanan di dalam kereta api selama libur Hari Raya Idul Fitri 1437H yang jatuh pada tahun 2016 silam. Manager Pengamanan Operasional DAOPS I PT KAI kala itu, Suharsono, meminta bantuan keamanan Kepolisian Daerah untuk turut menerjunkan anak buahnya ke lapangan. Total ada 594 personil yang akan turun mengamankan jalannya mudik nasional tersebut.Baca Juga: Sambut Angkutan Lebaran, Per 1 Juni 2017 PT ASDP Jual Tiket Online via GadgetDalam keterangannya, Suharsono mengaku akan menempatkan polisi bersenjata tersebut di daerah rawan tindak kejahatan ringan seperti copet di stasiun-stasiun besar. Penempatan tersebut bukan tanpa alasan, mengingat stasiun besar seperti Gambir dan Senen biasanya selalu ramai dipenuhi oleh para pemudik dan memungkinkan untuk para pelaku kriminal melancarkan aksinya. Tidak hanya di stasiun, polisi bersenjata api pun turut ditempatkan di kereta-kereta. “Ada yang di dalam kereta, tetapi kami menempatkan di kereta makan saja tidak ikut kontrol,” tuturnya.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedSulit Diamankan Secara Maksimal, Bus dan Kereta Jadi Sasaran Utama Serangan Teroris20/09/2017In “Bus AKAP”Antisipasi Serangan Teror dan Bom Bunuh Diri di Stasiun, Singapura Gelar Simulasi Libatkan 120 Orang04/02/2019In “Darat”Diterpa Sejumlah Teror, Perkeretaapian Jerman Siap Tingkatkan Pengamanan07/11/2018In “Darat” Sumber: dailymail.co.uk Setelah serangkaian serangan yang melanda Tanah Britania terhitung sejak 22 Mei 2017 kemarin saat sebuah bom bunuh diri mengguncang Manchester Arena kala konser Ariana Grande, dan yang paling anyar adalah rangkaian teror yang terjadi di sekitaran London Bridge dan dan Borough Market pada Sabtu (3/6/2017) kemarin membuat sejumlah pihak berwenang menetaskan beberapa putusan yang diharapkan dapat mencegah dan menanggulangi aksi teror yang terjadi.Baca Juga: Pertaruhkan Nyawa, Penumpang Wanita Ini Halau Teroris Lakukan PenusukkanKabarPenumpang.com melansir dari yorkshirepost.co.uk, Kamis (25/5/2017), British Transport Police (BTP) mengumumkan langkahnya dalam upaya untuk mencegah tindak kriminal di jaringan kereta, mengingat meningkatnya level teror di Inggris, terhitung sejak 22 Mei 2017 silam. Langkah pencegahan tersebut berupa pengerahan beberapa anggota bersenjata laras panjang yang akan berpatroli di kereta jarak jauh. Sebelumnya, pada Desember 2016 lalu, para petugas bersenjata ini sudah mulai berpatroli di jaringan Underground, namun penerapan di kereta jauh merupakan yang pertama kalinya.last_img read more

UWF Football Ticketing Update

first_imgWe hope that this note finds you and your loved ones in good health and good spirits.Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, one of our goals is to remain transparent with you. As the pandemic and global response continues to evolve, we remain committed to providing flexible options as it relates to your current football season tickets.Sadly, over the past few months, we have continued to see COVID-19 impacting so many in our communities. There are many questions, including what impact this pandemic may have on the future and our 2020-21 sports calendars. At this present time, we are moving forward as scheduled and are relying on local and state government officials for clarity and guidance. Speculation about the global environment over the next several months from now is premature, and we will continue to follow the advice and directives of medical experts, health officials, and the NCAA. We are committed to doing whatever is necessary to protect the health of our student-athletes, season ticket holders, and fans.Many of you have questions about how an alteration or cancellation of a season might impact you. Again, while it is too soon to speculate, if any sports season were to be canceled in 2020-21, we have made temporary changes to our no-refund policy for your season tickets. An additional range of questions remains, including adjusting dates of games or the number of games that could be played. The speculative nature of these questions, coupled with a large number of potential scenarios, prevents us from reasonably defining the types of relief that could be available. As many of you may have heard by now, Florida Tech discontinued their football program in May. UWF Administrators and Coaches are working on securing a new opponent to replace this originally scheduled home game on Nov. 14th. We understand and share the frustrations caused by these uncertain times. We recognize the importance and community contribution that each donor and season ticket holder brings to West Florida Athletics, and we are committed to treating you with fairness and appreciation.Adjusted UWF Ticket Office Hours of Operations in June:Monday – Thursday 9AM – 2PM(850) 474-ARGO (2746)*Please leave a detailed voicemail as we are on the other line or have briefly stepped out of the office. Otherwise, we will not be notified of a missed call.Given the difficulties and uncertainties faced by so many, we felt it is more than appropriate to extend the renewal and upgrade deadline indefinitely amidst these extraordinary times.Please know that we appreciate and value your continued commitment to our athletic department and university. We will continue to provide updates as details emerge. Please contact our ticket office with any questions.For ticketing inquires, please call the Athletics Ticketing Office at 850-474- ARGO (2746) or email athleticsticketing@uwf.eduFor the latest information, please visit goargos.com or uwf.eduPrint Friendly Versionlast_img read more

How to take pictures of Sony Xperia 10 II – MobilMania.cz

first_imgThe camera segment on the back of the phone consists of three lenses. The main 12MPx sensor is complemented by an 8MPx telephoto lens and an 8MPX wide-angle lens. Even if you zoom in or out within the camera environment, the resulting photos are a full 12 MPx.To build a Sony Xperia 10 II camera:Main lens: 12 MPx, 1 / 2.8 “, F2.0, 26 mm, 77 °Ultra wide angle lens: 8 MPx, 1/4 “, F2.2, 16 mm, 120 °Telephoto lens: 8 MPx, 1/4 ”, F2.4, 52 mm, 45 °Selfie camera: 8 MPx, 1/4“, F2,0, 84°The camera environment does not deviate significantly from established habits. You will find several switches at the edge, all other options are then available in the settings menu. It changes according to the currently selected mode, which you switch just above the trigger. Above this switch between photos and video is a switch between individual lenses at hand.Camera environmentCamera settingsThe pictures taken are very decent. The colors correspond to reality, with the telephoto lens you will notice a slight decrease in saturation, the wide-angle lens is qualitatively comparable to the main sensor. The photos are sharp, with details, without significant noise, you will only occasionally come across overshoots. Autofocus does not always focus as you would expect, and focusing overall could be faster.Lens comparison:Sample photos:The possibilities of the video are a very pleasant surprise. For comparably equipped phones, the offer usually ends with full HD with 60 fps, Xperia will also offer 4K. Videos could be more color-rich, with more detailed details (especially in darker areas, they blend a lot), but qualitatively they do not lag far behind the images. Unfortunately, even here, the phone refocuses unnecessarily during shooting.Sample video (full HD, 30 fps):Sample video (full HD, 60 fps):Sample video (4K, 30 fps):last_img read more

Porziņģis will not take part in the Dallas match tonight due…

first_imgThe Mavericks and Pacers test, which is the penultimate for both teams before the season resumes, will start in an hour and a half, and Dallas club head coach Riks Karlails told the media before the match that Latvian striker Kristaps Porziņģis will not be in the team.The investigator yesterday forgot to take the Covid-19 test, which is mandatory for every NBA bubble resident every day, so that the NBA can ensure the resumption of the season at a time when the coronavirus pandemic continues to erupt in the United States. “The porter broke the protocol and forgot to take the test,” said Carlla. “As a precaution, he cannot join the team now. I talked to him and he regretted what happened. ”Kārlails expressed confidence that Porziņģis will be able to return to the team tomorrow. The Mavericks’ final test game before the start of the season is scheduled for tomorrow against the 76ers.“I think we can all use this situation as an example,” Carlisle continued. “This is another indication of how seriously the NBA and medical staff take established safety protocols.”Porziņģis is not the only NBA player who has forgotten about the required analyzes, for example, for a similar reason, Paul Milseps could not participate in the Denver game. The NBA protocol stipulates that a player who has passed the Covid-19 test must be quarantined for one day, ie until a negative result is obtained from his next Covid-19 test.Resources used:https://twitter.com/townbrad/status…last_img read more
