CCMH is celebrating our "Rock Stars of healthcare”-that’s the theme for this year’s National Hospital Week, May 10-16, 2015. It celebrates the men and women who, day in and day out, remain committed to improving the health of their communities through compassionate care, constant innovation and unwavering, unmatched dedication. This is the annual opportunity to thank the dedicated individuals—physicians, therapist, technologist, nurses, support staff, volunteers, administrators and so many more—for their commitment. It’s also a great time for us to tell the hospital story and publicly reinforce the vital role hospitals play in their community’s overall health, which extends far beyond strictly providing medical care.

March 21, 2014 – Denver, CO – Author and police Sgt. Timothy Newton offers a fresh take on urban policing and tactics for winning the war on drugs in his newly released true crime book Property Cop, the Patrol: My Time in the Concrete Jungle of Phoenix, Arizona. The non-fiction is published by Outskirts Press.
When criminal justice student Timothy Newton applied for work private policing a group of apartment complexes, he found himself in a morass of urban warfare that pitted law enforcement against gangs, and law and order against out-of-control crime. Newton became a man on a mission: to create a safe and crime-free environment for honest, law-abiding citizens in the most violent policing precinct in Phoenix, Ariz.
In Property Cop, Sgt. Newton shows how the seemingly insurmountable war on drugs can be won and how urban apartment complexes and housing projects can be made safe. Sprinkled with fascinating, suspenseful and even humorous tales of his patrol experience, Newton’s book offers an entertaining and fast-paced ride on the wild side of urban policing.
From academic writings on the community policing model, the “Broken Windows” crime theory, use of “stop and frisk” and strategies on architectural design and lighting to fight the war on drugs, Property Cop, the Patrol serves well as both educational collegiate reading and an entertaining memoir.
Property Cop, the Patrol: My Time in the Concrete Jungle of Phoenix, Arizona is available online in paperback through Outskirts Press at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore. The book is sold through Amazon and Barnes and Noble for a maximum trade discount in quantities of 10 or more.
