conference? Note: Always advise the officer’s family before speaking or writing about the death. • Assess your own leadership style as it relates to this viewpoint. What is your bottom line? Are you prepared to defend your position if you had to deal with an officer suicide tomorrow? Tonight? Today? These are only a few viewpoints designed to stimulate further inves- tigation, discussion, and action. Suicide prevention is complex and multi- faceted. Yet that should not be a deterrent to getting started. The next time you witness a huge American flag being unfurled at an event, watch the logistics of this huge project. Many people work together hanging on to their two-foot piece of responsibility knowing how vital it is to the big picture. Together they pull off an arduous task making it look seamless and flawless. We can do the same with law enforcement suicide prevention. About the Author: Mary VanHaute is a civilian member of the FBINAA Officer Safety and Well- ness Committee.

• Considerations for Hardening IMEI and Additional Device Identifiers

ously listed. The FCC, law enforcement and ecoATM takes this issues seriously and works together to combat cell phone theft and pros- ecute those that commit these crimes. The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), unanimously passed a resolution in December 2017 regarding cell phone theft as outlined below: Reducing Mobile Device Theft Submitted by: Crime Prevention Committee and Police Investigation Operations Com- mittee The IACP reaffirms its position that, due to the vital need for access to all avail- able evidence in criminal investigations, all mass-market device manufacturers should be required to maintain the capability to unlock their devices and make the contents available to law enforcement in response to appropri- ate legal demands, and that maintaining such a capability is consistent with long-standing tradeoffs on device security and privacy. The IACP calls upon all law enforcement agencies to strongly support developing pub- CPC.002.t2017

lic awareness materials educating and encour- aging community members to activate on-de- vice security features on their mobile devices in an effort to prevent and reduce crime. Fur- thermore, the IACP encourages all law en- forcement agencies to use the global GSMA Device Check database which to identify and investigate lost or stolen mobile devices. 4 ments/pdfs/Communications/IACP_Reso- lutions_2017_Final.pdf For more information regarding our services and cell phone theft, please contact the following: Max Santiago , Sr. Director of Law Enforcement Relations, ecoATM Michael McCann , Director of Law Enforcement Relations, ecoATM, Doug Muldoon , Director of Law Enforcement Relations, ecoATM, Footnotes: 1.

HARDENING IMEI AND ADDITIONAL DEVICE IDENTIFIERS “Across the US, law enforcement officers may not be aware of the significance or exis- tence of the device identifier (IMEI, MEID, etc.). Procedures to obtain the IMEI or ESN on devices vary among manufacturers and this complicates law enforcement abilities to ac- quire that information. Also, if the device will not power-on, this further complicates abilities. Across the US, law enforcement officers are not fully aware of how to access information that is in the GSMA IMEI Database.” – Taken from the Report of TAC Subcommittee on Mobile Device Theft Prevention (MDTP) Analysis and Recommendations, 4 Dec 2015. The reality is cell phone theft is a ma- jor issue and a concern for all parties previ-
