Vancouver police department funding passes full senate

U.S. Senator Patty Murray announced that the $500,000 she included in a 2010 spending bill for a new Vancouver Records Management System has passed the full Senate. The new RMS represents a major step forward in technology for the Vancouver police department, enabling it to perform better crime analysis, deploy personnel in a more effective manner, share information more effectively, and pinpoint areas where patterns of crime are occurring.

The RMS will enhance Vancouver’s ability to partner with regional law enforcement agencies in Southwest Washington and the Portland, Oregon metropolitan area. It will also allow police to communicate with citizens online.

When the current information system was originally purchased in 1996, Clark County and its cities served a population of 298,000. Today, Clark County has more than 425,000 citizens.

The funding was included in the fiscal year 2010 Senate Commerce, Justice, and Science Appropriations Bill, which passed the Senate by a vote of 71-28. Senator Murray is a senior member of the Appropriations Committee.

From far out to mainstream


Sally Tomlinson

Psychedelic posters were the signature art form of the 1960s. They decorated college dorm rooms, homes and offices across the United States and around the world.

Clark College will host its 2009-2010 Faculty Speaker Series with “From Far Out to Mainstream: Lifecycle of the Psychedelic Rock Posters, 1965-73," at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 12. The Faculty Speaker Series event is free and open to the public and will be held in the Penguin Student Lounge, located in Clark’s Penguin Union Building, 1933 Fort Vancouver Way.

The Faculty Speaker Series, established by Clark College with support from the Clark College Foundation, honors individual faculty members and celebrates academic excellence. Sally Tomlinson, professor of art at Clark College, will lead the discussion.

Tomlinson, who resides in Vancouver, has written essays on the rock posters for the San Diego Museum of Art, Penguin Books’ Portable Sixties Reader (ed. Anne Charters, 2003) and the Tate-Liverpool’s “Summer of Love” exhibition of 2007, in addition to her master of arts thesis which was completed in the early 1990s. In September 2009, she was invited to speak about the posters for an exhibition opening at the Flint Art Institute in Michigan.
