Stop being mean to me, Greg. You're going to make me cry. All over my OPTAG (Obscure Prosecutional Term Abbreviation Guide). And then NOBODY will know what I'm talking about, including me. I guess maybe we have individual office acronyms--ACBI/FV is just what we've always called family violence cases here, in writing, at least, back to the dark ages. I assumed that's what everyone else did, too, but I guess that's what you get for assuming.

Personally, I think "Janie's Got a Gun" should be first on the list.

You don't have her translating lolcats, do you, Andrea?

And do all the songs on Maroon 5's Songs About Jane count even though Jane isn't in the titles of any of those songs?

Regarding songs with "Jane" in the title, I vote of "Lady Jane" by the Rolling Stones.

Janette A

I'm just joshing. I only want you crying if it is because you are laughing so hard.

The acronym part will surely make Jane happy.

What, by the way, is a "crackronym"?

I believe it's a form of Tourette's that only afflicts employees of the federal government.

That's good, Gretch. I hadn't thought of that one.

Isn't that by TP?

Whoa, another acronym!

Well, I guess it would have to, wouldn't it?

Greg, could you help me get in touch with American Corporate Benefits, Inc.? I have heard some CEOs of even failing companies have managed to do a lot better than I have ever dreamed of doing as a prosecutor (though from uncowobborated sources), and I believe I could use some of those corporate-style benefits. Thanks in advance, or TIA.

Vallejo Police Outsource Report Writing

Police department in cash-strapped Bay Area city has third-party firm taking down notes

By JACKSON WEST

The police department in cash-strapped Vallejo, Calif., may have found a way to save a little money.

The Police Department is now using a transcription service based in Tennessee -- Nashville-McLintock Transcription and Consulting Services -- to write up its police reports.

The reports are dictated into a digital audio file then sent via a secure connection to Nashville-McClintock, where retired law-enforcement officials write them up.

Here's, the rest of the story.

I read about that on fark.com (always a great source for interesting news, with creative headlines). Personally, I think as long as they keep the digital audio records also for later comparisons to the reports, and include them as part of the file to prosecutors, then the *idea* behind it is an innovative way to handle report writing. It certainly gets officers back on the street sooner. However, they would have to be scrupulous about who they were using and how the data was transmitted. The privacy concerns about using a non-LE company are warranted.

I just learned that my defendant's father was a "crack attic".

A defendant just informed me by letter that his case should be dropped because the case against him is nothing but "hear say she say."

In a recent report...

"Officer *** was able to locate the two individuals and attached them to this report."

We're gonna need a bigger file...

From a transcript of a domestic assault trial:

"He called her a profound name, and then called her a liar."

So what counts as a "profound" name? Plato?
