AAPD to receive
$27,996 for Law
Enforcement
Intelligence Device
ByADAM RUBENFIRE
Daily StaffReporter
Following a series of recent
unarmed robberies and multiple
assaults in July, the Ann Arbor
Police Department has received
federal funding for new technol-
ogy to assist in finding perpetra-
tors.
At its meeting last night, the
Ann Arbor City Council unani-
mously voted to accept and
appropriate funds from a 2011
Edward Byrne Memorial Jus-
tice Assistance Grant from the
U.S. Department of Justice.
The grant was awarded to the
AAPD to help them implement
a new and sophisticated crime
mapping "dashboard" called a
Law Enforcement Intelligence

Device, whichwill allowpoliceto
better identify trends in crimes,
such as the times or places they
frequently occur, according to
the AAPD's grant application.
Currently, members of AAPD's
support staff are responsible for
crime analysis, crime mapping
and generating statistics. How-
ever, the new software will allow
"patrol officers, investigators and
police managers" real-time avail-
ability to the information, rather
than having to wait for statistics
and maps to be generated by
staffers.
The application notes that
the total cost of purchasing
and implementing the LEID is,
$48,514. The JAG granted the
city $27,996, and the remaining
$20,518 for the device will come
from state or federal forfeitO
funds thatthe AAPDhas alreadN
budgeted for.
The LEID may also assist
police in determining where
and when to increase patrols in
response to recent crimes close

MICHIGAN'S PETER PARKOUR

- Editor's Note: This is the first
of a three-part series about
students' one-of-a-kind
summer experiences.

Devoted Chicago Cubs fan
Doug Fischer fulfilled a life-long
dream this summer.
Fischer, a senior in the School
of Kinesiology, got the chance to
intern with the Cubs at Wrigley
Field in Chicago, working in the
newly created Fan Experience
department.
"Working at Wrigley was
incredible. It's just such a his-
torical place," Fischer said.
A highlight of his job was get-
ting to meet former Cubs play-

ers, like Ernie Banks and Lee
Smith, who told stories about
the team while Fischer led sta-
dium tours alongside them.
"Lee Smith came in, and he
was just hilarious," Fischer said.
"He just came in and was mak-
ing fun of everyone and telling.
these cool stories."
From the baseball fields of
Chicago, to the presidential
motorcade, to a media mogul in
L.A., students like Fischer left
campus this summer to expand
their educational and life expe-
riences and jumpstart their
future career paths.
LSA junior Ariel Halpern

executive department at Talmer

in Troy. At the beginning of the
summer, he never imagined that
a few months later he would be
driving White House staffers
around Michigan.
It turned out the chief of
staff at Talmer was the chief of
staff for former Michigan Gov.
Jennifer Granholm. Through
this connection, Halpern had
the chance to participate in
the presidential motorcade and
drive national officials from an
airport in Holland, Mich. to a
