This study presents recommendations to improve recruiting and retention in the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD). The recommendations, tailored to the unique circumstances of the NOPD, include using civilian employees for some jobs now performed by officers; developing a proactive recruiting program; providing housing; increasing the frequency of promotion examinations; eliminating the backlog of promotions; restructuring compensation; establishing a first-responders charter school; and rebuilding the police infrastructure.
Presents a systematic and comprehensive presentation of temporary excavation shoring and earth retention systems used to construct permanent facilities inside them. These systems are used to construct underground pipelines, tunnels, tank and storage facilities, foundations and structures. Each chapter presents a shoring system type description, how it is constructed, equipment requirements, cost analysis, etc. Safety, inspection and testing codes and methods included throughout.
Proceedings of the 2010 Earth Retention Conference held in Bellevue, Washington, August 1 4, 2010, organized by the Earth Retaining Structures Committee of the Geo-Institute of ASCE. The 72 papers presented in this proceedings examine the major developments in the design and construction practice of earth retaining structures worldwide, over the past twenty years. The topics analyzed in this proceedings include: ? supported excavations ? mechanically stabilized earth retaining walls ? seismic evaluation of retention systems ? numerical analyses of retention systems ? load and resistance factor design ? landslide stabilization
This is the 41st Report by the Armed Forces' Pay Review Body, and provides independent advice to the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for Defence on remuneration and charges for members of the naval, military and air forces of the Crown. As last year the Secretary of State for Defence directed the Review Body to confine recommendations on an overall pay uplift to those earning £21,000 or less because of the two-year pay freeze imposed across the public sector. The main recomendation is for an increase of £250 in military salaries for those earning £21,000 or less. A number of other recommendations are made on targeted pay measures and accommodation and food charges.
An unbiased, comprehensive review of helical pile technology andapplications Helical piles have risen from being merely an interestingalternative for special cases to a frequently requested, morewidely accepted deep foundation adopted into the 2009 InternationalBuilding Code. The first alternative to manufacturer-producedmanuals, Howard Perko's Helical Piles: A Practical Guide toDesign and Installation answers the industry's need for anunbiased and universally applicable text dedicated to the designand installation of helical piles, helical piers, screw piles, andtorque anchors. Fully compliant with ICC-Evaluation Services, Inc.,Acceptance Criteria for Helical Foundation Systems andDevices (AC358), this comprehensive reference guidesconstruction professionals to manufactured helical pile systems andtechnology, providing objective insights into the benefits ofhelical pile foundations over driven or cast foundation systems,and recommending applications where appropriate. After introducingthe reader to the basic features, terminology, history, and modernapplications of helical pile technology, chapters discuss: Installation and basic geotechnics Bearing and pullout capacity Capacity verification through torque Axial load testing, reliability, and sizing Expansive soil and lateral load resistance Corrosion and life expectancy Foundation, earth retention, and underpinning systems Foundation economics Select proprietary systems IBC and NYC Building codes Covering such issues of concern as environmental sustainability,Helical Piles provides contractors and engineers as well asstudents in civil engineering with a practical, real-world guide tothe design and installation of helical piles.
