Increased Security at Fanime 09
« on: December 25, 2008, 03:08:20 PM »

                   For the protection of all the attendees, staffers, volunteers and Guests of Honor. The San Jose Police Department, Santa Clara County Sheriff's Department, The CHP, Adult Probation Department, and Gang Task Force should patrol the perimeters of Fanime. which includes nearby eating places, A 3 city block perimeter towards Downtown San Jose and The Civic Audiotorium should a big name band makes their appearence. The con population will NOT be victims of outside curruption throughout the streets of San Jose.
         For a fun and safe FANIME 2009.

This is an odd proposal...

You want a lockdown con?  Even WonderCon and AX don't need to resort to those tactics.

Is there an actual threat you're thinking about, or just general overreaction to nothing?

We do have SJPD @ con, outside of con, and at the Civic. I don't know about 3 city blocks, that is kinda paranoid.

Sheriff's...? Adult Probation Department (WTF?)....CHP (ok......)....Gang Task Force....(....huh? cosplayers are gang members)

Is this a serious proposal or are you just being stupid? I vote for the latter.

it doesn't hurt to always play it safe right? i mean better safe than sorrie correct? but.. increased protection around the 3 blocks... i mean, wouldn't that cost money?

and unlike here in my city, san jose isn't bankrupt so your police patrol force is already doing their job with enough numbers...-

In the convention center, we have the presence that we believe is appropriate. For the area around the convention, the city and law enforcement is aware of our convention and I trust in their judgment and experience over the need for our con to specifically request or outline the level of law enforcement in the area.

Okay... even paranoid wise...

I can understand the SJP, the Alameda Sheriffs...

But why the hell would you want the CHP, Adult Probation, and Gang Task Force there?

... CHP... California High Patrol. Why would you want... officers that specifically work california freeways/highways... on location? They have like jurisdiction there for one... and what would they do?

Adult Probation. Huh? For what?

Gang Task Force. HAHAHAHAHA! Dude, do you even know what the Gang Task Force does?

 Im not a resident of CA so I dont know exactly who all of these people are.

 Question of extremety aside; I like the idea of having real law enforcement at a convention.

 Not so much to protect con-goers from the general populous, but because there is a seriosu problem ( at all conventions)  with  staff/ volenteers overstepping their boundaries and confusing Con poliocy, and  " I dont like" with law, and worst of all throwing their wieght around where they have NO jurisdiction. (ie public space)

Despite the title of "Increased Security at Fanime 09", what you're trying to point out probably isn't exactly relevant to what's being discussed here. I doubt having more "real law enforcement" would actually help replace the volunteers poor ethics. If anything, it'd be a better suggestion to just have the volunteers improve, otherwise, learn how to deal with them. If they're overstepping their boundaries, then point it out to them and/or bring them to a higher authority.

From what I know, SJSU officers are present on con grounds as is, and the above mentioned departments in the OP wouldn't do anything to the safety of FanimeCon in reality, other than being really paranoid.

As Eric and Steve stated, yes, we do have SJPD during the entirety of the convention.

When we had a popular band come (aka last year's MF guest, AN CAFE), we had professional security for the venue and every other possible safety precaution.

Your suggestions for other agencies to come and patrol the convention is a bit far-fetched. Just because you don't see the steps we take to protect our attendees, does not mean Fanime is unsafe and in need of higher security.  If the other attendees are respectful of each other and have enough common sense to be safe in a non-convention atmosphere (i.e. their hometown, school, etc), then there shouldn't be a problem in having a fun and safe time around downtown San Jose.

They've only made this single post, I'm hesitant to think they're series, but...
What brought this up?  I didn't think there were any problems last year that would involve the police, so why ask for an increase?

As you pointed out, this might be some kind of joke. I was actually a little concerned at first too since this is my first Fanime.

I'm not too familiar with the area. Plus, I'm going alone and had planned on staying offsite (not Hilton/Marriott). But the responses from everyone else are reassuring. That, and I try to be responsible when I travel and don't usually do stupid things. (Unless chocolate is involved. I'll pretty much do anything for chocolate  ;))

Cuz I'm a mod....I can:)

CHP also acts as state police and has jurisdiction over the entire state of CA.
