"And the KTAR news at thanks so much for being here it's the Mike Broomhead show we appreciate you spending part of your Friday with us this is police week and we honor the the men and women who have paid the ultimate price and serving in their communities police officers across the country and one of the most one of the most heartfelt stories and things that really played on this community was dealing with covert nineteen and the death for the first time ever the commander with the Phoenix police department and commander Carmichael gave his life at a domestic violence call and one of the people I've had the privilege of working with here at KTAR news is alley vendor who covers first responders and does the best job of it in the valley by far and she acquired an interview with the family of commander chronicle first of all alley I wanna ask you got on a personal level they had to be tough had to be tough for you to do that interview it was it was a unique experience and as tough as it was it was incredible to see the amount of strength in this family obviously just months after a husband and a father and a grandfather passed away they opened up their home to me essentially a stranger and they just told me about the love that they had for him and have for him in to do C. B. in this man's home I sat at his kitchen table and I saw the pictures on their walls and it was a very surreal feeling when you are when you look at being able to speak with them but what a lot of people don't understand or maybe don't remember is that he was at you just months away from retirement and him and his wife were planning their golden years the next phase of their life and then to get that news it just it had to just be had to shake them to the court absolutely and you know even practicing my interview with them and talking to them and it's hard when you're trying to describe to people what an interview entails and something is emotional and raw as that I tried to set it up in the best way possible to focus on what they wanted shared and what they want told because a lot of the times I mean even as we talk about and you can't help but think of the highly decorated thirty one year veteran of the Phoenix police department but what else you know there with what about the other fifty six years of living in his life and I got a glimpse of that and his wife and told me about how they met at church and after seven years of friendship they finally figured out that they couldn't live without each other and she had to come to terms with what it was going to be like to be a police officer's wife and it was really it was difficult at first for her bye this is kind of how she described it to me when we got married I had to think about because he's an academy whether I could do this or not and I decided it wasn't worth having in my life so excited you just gonna do what I need to do throughout life to be a police officer's wife and it was it was incredibly inspiring to see her talk about that and how it wasn't easy bye she knew that if the commander Greg Carmichael wasn't that police officer he wouldn't have been the man she loves so much because that's how much he loved his job how about his children of that adult children but what do they have to say about their father I got to speak with two of his daughters his one daughter Rachel talked about how selfless he was and how he always put others before himself so much that there's little reminders of him all around their houses now she said this there's lots of little projects around the house that now that my brother and the son in laws completing because he never got because he was doing everything for everybody else and obviously just ahead a family man a handyman they talked about him being a tee ball coach for his grandkids and his daughter Rachel also emotionally told me about the night before he was killed in the line of duty her mom sent a photo of commander Greg chronicle watching a Pixar Disney movie called the good dinosaur by himself and he was in he and his wife said that he misses grandkids that much because he couldn't see them because of the corona virus so we started watching a a children's movie by himself because he would watch that with his grandkids and it reminded him of that while were you able to get a sense from the family that they were able to kind of feel the embrace of the community usually the one thing that the community does this is show these families how much we love and respect the service of these police officers and they make the sacrifice were they able to do it we would ask them about that we're able to feel that in spite of the distancing because a corona virus yes absolutely even when I saw their house as I walked in there were blue ribbons tied on the stop signs down the street and there were flags in the yard and even while I just kind of sat there and chatted with them and get in got to know them I started kind of picking up as they looked around the house there were these big American flags in the ones with the blue line down the middle that we often see and I asked the daughters how many of those do you guys have and she said and Rachel told me that someone is all these different people from the community they created these custom flags with his badge number and the commander written on it each person and their family now has one of these giant flags to display in their homes that's incredible I appreciate what you do I I know that earning the trust of of of law enforcement first responders is not an easy thing to do and it's a testament to your your time spent with family that you were able to get this interview it was it's phenomenal I hope people will will will will read and listen because it really was terrific and I appreciate you sharing some of it thanks Mike I appreciate it our that's our vendor and again we just been working together for a few months and that night texting back and forth with alley and and trying to figure out what was happening because all the information was so muddled but I I don't think that there's anyone in the valley especially with all due respect everyone else that works is hard to get the real story behind first responders like she does and yeah this interview was so compelling and what she was able to accomplish and if you we've not been able to hear from the family because of distancing it because what's going on the community didn't get to embrace them so if you want just a little picture of what is happening what happened and happening with this family is about as good a pictures you're going to get I hope you'll go and check it out as we end police week and it seems appropriate to say to the men and women that are serving right now especially in Phoenix PD we understand that this loss for your family it is still very very new and raw and to all of us appreciate across the valley in the country the service to your community that the what you do as men and women in that uniform to keep us safe and protect us never goes unnoticed by anybody on the show for sure and we appreciate so much the sacrifice you make not just giving your lives but giving of yourselves and the sacrifice your family makes you heard how difficult it was for his wife and to watch her husband to become a police officer's wife families of law enforcement and military and first responders in general Hale firefighters as well whatever your connection to someone in as a first responder you say goodbye to them knowing that any time the phone rings could be that call you never wanted to get there aren't a lot of jobs that are like that day in and day out and law enforcement is one of them so for police week just wanted to take a moment to say to the men and women that serve in that capacity or have served in that capacity you're sacrificing your service to your community is something we can never thank you enough for and I'll go and listen to an end and read about this interview it really is something special coming up in a moment we'll talk about the numbers in Arizona and another long term care facility right here in the valley with staggering numbers of code nineteen a death we'll get to that coming up in just a moment hi custom landscaping is a business that I am so thankful that I called I need my front yard done I'd buy procrastinated for over a year I'm not a fan of desert landscaping and that's

"Com that's why these they can find a location close to them absolutely has got all the details on the program in terms of what we're taking them for them that's incredible how long have you been doing this this program started nationally actually last week it rolled out in Houston and Indianapolis and this week we're actually bringing non clinics Dallas as well as parts of Florida we'll be expanding US cities you know shortly we'll sell it so it's good to talk to you again and I appreciate you doing this and I'll just kind of step it up like you always do as a business owner to help the community around yet this is a great idea thanks Mike and you know we're we're looking at is you know these first responders are really you know put it on the line for us and we were looking at ways that we could really help to support on and you know cleaning this is what we do and what we're trying to do is literally lighten the load up to these individuals are local heroes I mean think about it you know less than you want to worry about after ten twelve archer is dirty laundry well Hey we definitely can take that burden off of them so this is their lawns help them out so laundry in general it's not just their uniforms and things they work in absolutely it's designed for their personal laundry at home as well we have washing all program that you know takes care of all their needs in terms where shorts socks whatever anything we can do to really help these folks out and you know take one thing off the plate for them in our way of saying thanks Robert doing for us that's awesome Phil thank you so much for coming out and telling the story we're gonna help get the word out all right please go to you know hope that type cleaners dot com and all the details are on there and thanks for helping us out Martel it's my pleasure I thank still that's still believes right again a great success story started out as the leaders cleaners years and years and years ago twenty years ago and I think it's what I met Phil maybe twenty five and has grown his business twenty two locations now they're all called tight cleaners around the valley but hope dot tied cleaners dot com and if you're a first respond or you're working at a hospital whatever it is they're not just doing your uniforms they'll do your laundry I had that what eight an act of kindness I bring this up because we are doing that here at KTA are we helping people get the word out about acts of kindness it doesn't have to be a business if you had someone do something kind for you I've talked about a couple different business things that have happened there's another great story today food growers around the valley including our friends at Hickman farms and Shamrock donating eggs and milk and assess cities to foster families all over the valley to help cover the needs of these foster families what a great thing that they're doing but these are businesses the acts of personal kindness of you have someone that is acted and done something kind for you you can call six oh two two hundred twenty seven thirty three that six oh two two zero zero twenty seven thirty three and you can leave a message there and we're gonna play some of these on the air on this show all of our shows we're gonna play them on the air to give people a better look at who we are I saw the town of Gilbert has in Instagram page and I can't remember the the didn't tire name of that off the top of my head but I saw the other day somebody had set up a sharing table it was just a card table set up out front of somebody's house look like on the sidewalk people are keeping distant but if they had something extra they were leaving it on the table if they needed something that was on the table they're welcome to take it and it was just the neighbors trying to help neighbors out while remaining physically distant and I thought what a great ingenious way for someone you know for people to help each other out but also to show who we are as a community it's one thing to be able to do something for someone when everything is going very very well for you I have noticed whether it's the gold star mothers mothers who have lost children in combat they seem to be the ones that are motivated to help other mothers other military families along the way a great organization called ma'am military assistance mission was started by Margie bonds Marty lost her son Michael was a marine and she lost her son and she started this organization called military assistance mission that has grown to be one of the greatest military support groups in Arizona and she did this with a heavy heart I mean this is a mother who has done her duty she's paid her price and you know my mother reaching out to other mothers when the notification came that they had lost their son or daughter and when people in times of trouble look outward and not inward it shows you who they really are and if you've got one of these acts of kindness around you and and again it does not matter fact we prefer it's not about a business a friend a neighbor someone you witnessed an act of kindness from person to person six oh two two zero zero twenty seven thirty three is the number and I'm looking forward to telling a lot more of those stories in the days to come we have enough bad news we know we're dealing with a very difficult time the president has warned us the governor is warned us all the medical experts have warned us this next week or so we're going to see Graham numbers but everyone is also saying there is a light at the end of this very dark tunnel and that light is really what we need to focus on and part of that light is not losing hope and you don't lose hope when you're able to help someone else I just think I I maybe I am way too optimistic but you haven't let me down yet there's something about who we are that when trouble strikes somewhere the good in us comes out and in a moment we're gonna deal with something fairly tragic the the death of the hero commander Greg Carmichael laid to rest today the Phoenix police department will be broadcasting a special tribute to commander Carmichael we're gonna carry that live coming up in the next segment of the show we are going to honor him in our way there's going to be a moment of silence for everyone to join in so if you can stick around please do and I would ask you please notify your friends and neighbors to turn it on to ninety two three because we are going to honor this hero because we can't be with him and his family and his co workers we want to be there with them virtually as the Phoenix police department pays tribute to one of their own it's going to happen in just a moment as we talk about the troubled Financial Times when right now two solid days will take gains on Wall Street for the first time and however long it's been what do you do now and what do you do next why would tell you right now you contact Trajan wealth these are experts at their jobs they make sure as a fiduciary your needs come first in other words are not going to try to sell you something that benefits them not you they are always looking out for your needs they're bound to by law but these are just good people with great advice to help you navigate me climb out of this navigate when trouble comes again to make sure you're prepared to retire when ever it is that you are going to retire it's what they're great at and you should contact them today you're going.

"KTAR news app thanks again for being a little bit of good news and silver lining on a very dark cloud here in the city of Phoenix the second police officer that was injured in the shooting that killed commander Carmichael was released from the hospital Nerissa tao hand was shot Sunday while responding to a domestic dispute between two roommates the commander was killed also Alicia Hubert was also injured in the shooting they were released also Hubert was released in the hospital on Tuesday and then the Dow has these two were brought back together Phoenix police posted a photo of the office of the union on Saturday the photo showed an emotional humor embracing Dow Hannah she was being wheeled out of the hospital on a Gurney Dow hands left leg appeared to be still heavily bandaged uniformed officers can be seen watching and applauding the reunion in the background this is about the best news you can have in a situation like this I'm gonna go back to something we've been talking about with the social distancing that's going on isolation is already something that is damaging to people's psyche it's used in you know when you got prisoners are trying to get information from we know that isolation is something that is damaging to the human psyche and extended periods you're talking about a traumatic situation that's happened to young officers both twenty three and twenty two years old Dow analyst is twenty three Hubertus twenty two these are two young officers that were injured in the line of duty and their commander was killed in the same incident being able to see each other for a few moments is an amazing amazingly positive thing that happened but to the entire Phoenix police department to the conical family who has not been able to feel the embrace of the community this is something that is isolation is just so damaging and there's no way that we can convey on any level can we can convey to this family how we feel and one of the things that has been so moving every time I've gone to the funeral the police officer a trooper is the outpouring from the public the number of people that these funerals are usually held at Christ Church of the valley at sixty Seventh Avenue and Happy Valley road because it's the biggest facility and can hold the most people and to see the public turn out for a police officer's funeral to watch as normally they they will line then like almost like a parade route from the church to wherever that officer is going to be in terms but there is a there are people that will line the streets with American flags or there's thin blue line flags and signs of support and flowers and showing you know well just standing with their hands over their hearts the entire families young children as as the people are as the family is driven by that's not going to happen at least in the short term it's not gonna happen for these families but what a great moment for these two young officers that work together and it two officers it doesn't matter that range these two officers to have a few moments with co workers and a moment of normalcy where the last time these two work together it was chaos their their boss had been killed they were in a firefight with a maniac and they were taken to the hospital and then they were you know basically they were quarantined everybody was quarantined that that things have changed so dramatically this is I just wanted to share some good news if you want to go to KTAR dot com then there's a story there the picture that the police had posted on Instagram is there it is a great read it is it will give you just a moment to see the smiles on their faces really you can tell it was a moment that was really needed by these two officers and I'll remind you yeah not to belabor the point but we are we still have first responders out there that are dealing with the public and they have families and they're worried about going home and bringing covert nineteen home with them and so many of them whether they're working in the medical industry or medical field in a hospital somewhere or if they're first responders on the streets going to incidents they're dealing with the public and many of them are going home and their children have been separated from them and other homes because I want to get their kids sick many of them have older parents they're not seeing their elderly parents either because they're worried about it they're doing things to sanitize their clothes their cars every single day if you have an interaction with the first responders if you get pulled over for some reason if you have to call the police if you're a witness to a crime whatever the circumstance might be they may start asking you questions about your health just comply no one's going to ask you to break hippa laws but they want to be informed if they need to do whatever precaution to take whatever precautions necessary when they come in contact with you it's just been something again everybody says what can I do these are mine Danes but there are little things that we can do if you come in contact with a first responder realize Hey well the way we're supposed to behave our friend my friend Tina the nurse on the air said pretend like you have it and pretend like everybody around you does too and you don't want to catch it for you to be able to you say I at the end pretend you have it I don't want to give it to a first responder I wouldn't want them to have to take it home to their family and remember the first responders are coming in contact far more with the public then you and I are right now and we don't want to catch it from them either but if we have an interaction if you have to call nine one one whatever the circumstances are be a little more aware the reason why I'm saying this is listen to these numbers in New York there are about four thousand EMT paramedic teams about four thousand people are currently staying home from work the NYPD has about sixty five hundred members that called out sick at the end of last week and those numbers are not expected to improve over the coming days there are over ten thousand first responders out sick in New York City now that doesn't mean that they're all covert nineteen positive but they're all symptomatic and staying home ten thousand first responders in New York City if we want to stop the spread we're doing the right things in our home if for some reason you have to be in touch with or in contact with a first responder keep those numbers in mind keep them healthy and keep their families healthy what we're gonna do just after the top of the hour president trump says we have a major disaster that's been declared here in the state of Arizona we just were talking about the Phoenix city council in the economy in Phoenix well the new numbers are out we'll talk numbers we will talk about disaster relief now what that looks like in trying to feed Arizona families mental health counselling what we'll do up on the Navajo nation on the other you know the other native American tribes and things we can do here in Arizona all that's coming up in just.

"You gonna give it to a hospital or first responders that can use them the people they can't avoid can avoid contact with the general public I can do my I mean all the sound proof studio where I can do my show skeleton crew in the building I can go to the grocery store off hours during the day I can physically keep my distance from anyone even if they are not necessarily being aware of keeping their distance from me I can do all of those things my job does not require me to interact with people I was driving home yesterday and two things I saw that struck me number one was I saw the fifty one being shut down going north bound and it was being shut down to transport the the body of commander Carmichael from the coroner's office to a mortuary and so it was very stark reminder that families got some is going through some very dark times but as I got off on the fifty wanted Thomas and I was going east on Thomas road there were two Phoenix police officers pulled over the bus stop and they were arresting someone they had a suspect in handcuffs now there was no physical altercation going on there was no fight happening but the officers were hands on with the suspect they cannot avoid those situations first responders must make contact so you wash your hands you do what you can after but you are a much higher risk of spread we'll talk New York and what's happening there again because we saw how quickly it's been spreading in the city of New York the devastation that's happening in the state and the city of New York to their first respond or into the general population should be a lesson for everyone of what we can do again the advice that was given by a nurse on the shoulder name is Tina was you should always behave like you have it and you should also behave like everyone around you has it as well behave like you have it don't want to spread it and behave like everybody around you has it and you don't want to catch it if we were mindful of that when in public there is no one no one is upset no one has hurt feelings because you're not in close contact right now there's plenty that we can do to remain safe and and maybe Dodge a bigger bullet here maybe we can really not have the devastation that was happening other places maybe this ends a little faster in Arizona that other places because we were on the front side of it and the funny thing is is it's all maybes we know what happens if we don't do it that's the issue I coach football the guy that said would tell the team every year during summer weights and everything else that I cannot guarantee you that if you show up every day and lift weights and do the right thing and try as hard as you can to practice each week I cannot guarantee you will win a state championship but I can guarantee you if you don't do those things we won't so there's no guarantee that we're going to avoid a mass outbreak of this you know really bad in Arizona if we do the right thing but if we don't do the right thing you can be guaranteed bad things are gonna happen coming up in just a few moments we're gonna be talking of about in the state is Arizona ready because our talk to Gatos with B. Q. poll question of the day that's right around the corner Hey if you're now we're I was just talking with someone about what do you do when at home right now not just to stay in shape but watching what you eat if you're in a place right now we are trying to lose weight it's difficult we are able to exercise it's difficult when you're boarding people do that bored eating or stress eating if you want to lose weight now is the.

"Being here it's the Mike Broomhead show very difficult time in the Phoenix police department first time in its history commander killed in the line of duty two other officers were wounded at the same time in the same incident had the privilege of speaking with chief Jerry Williams chief Williams and I talking about this incident and she knew the new this commander Carmichael for over thirty years so I started off by asking her chief how are you really trying to be here for my employees trying to stay healthy for them I'm trying to be that strong show of support and just really checking in on my employees to just make sure that we check in with each other if we need mental health services the services are there and just really trying to be that person that just trying to wrap our arms around amount of mind around what happened do you need scenario here the first time in the history of Phoenix at a commander's been killed in the line of duty and I was talking with some people of the lives he has influenced his influence the law enforcement leaders in Arizona he worked with you for thirty years he worked with Frank Milstead the outgoing DPS director and he had a close relationship since high school with Paul Penzone Maricopa county sheriff this man was an influence on all of our law enforcement leaders well here is a strong influence but then in the past twenty four hours or so you've been getting text messages and email messages from people using words to describe crack it's good man family man troop leader topically sound a great presence those kind of courts speak to the epitome of the fact that he was definitely a cop's cop when when you get your arms around this I know must be difficult emotionally and personally but also professionally on the other side of this as you as you're moving for with your officers what do what do you say to the younger officers about officer safety great question so will definitely work out we now have body worn cameras we train our employees with the highest standards of training not just new economy but throughout their careers were encouraging people to stay focused and stay positive to stay true to you and I know it's cliche but we talk about find the blue when you stay true to that that's in you and and our employees my kids you know because you you are picking up one portion every day in spite of those challenges happened Sunday night the men and women are still putting their uniforms honestly coming to work the crime scene checklist altering attaining the communications operators are still taking calls for the Phoenix police department is is moving on and moving forward but with heavy hearts one of the things I've I've noticed I've seen in law enforcement is when a tragedy like this strikes it's almost as if it galvanizes you even more and you become even better at your job I would absolutely one hundred percent agree with you I will wear out the hospital I'm not before last I could see that coming together I also recognize if I may on our help you all the things in courting out on Sunday night that they were using universal precautions to which is great Alps opportunity open the governor's office of highway safety and I don't know like if you were paying attention to the billboards on the freeways I will definitely come in being correct as well also tell the NCOs who showed up on scene as well so it's a taxon support internally and externally and we will be eternally grateful to everyone how are all officers Hubert and I doubt him recovering great questions I do want to reach out to both Oscar down in here today so they are recovering are they are supported by their families are not the chance to meet both of their moms at the hospital on Sunday night they have a strong show of support I'm I'm actually talking just a little bit at the moment because not only did we have there are blood family there they had officers who weren't even at work and heard about the incident he showed up off just wanting to see what they could do to be there to support so I'm I'm just blessed to have the Phoenix to the family that the house we've talked before we've talked about the covert nineteen and how it's changed policing let me just ask a different question with the the the new US new orders in place by the governor have you had conversations with them about how that enforcement is going to happen is how your agency is going to enforce any of these things since our guests we have direct contact with the governor's office opportunity into most of our valley law enforcement is going to be pretty much we're going to go make educational contact individual I'm going to abide by the order I definitely look into that I'm still waiting for the stock from all G. forms to be filled by the president when we decide to do some other things we need a little bit more clarification from the local army lot lot lawyers to tell us what we can really do and I think the government order status all right so my last question is we've talked we talked last time in the air about this what what can the citizens of Phoenix do to make it easier find your officers when they come in contact because of social distancing how can you do your job and what can the citizens that come in contact with your officers do to make that easier thanks for that question mark so if you have a cold let us know if you have a car let us know if you believe it or not you were trusted with code nineteen let us know so that party going on in that scene my employees my officers can die whatever protective equipment featured on an order for all of us to be safe as far as the executive order please abide by the executive order make it simple make it easy on us order in or go out hi techs walk Pixar all that will make it a much better and safer place for the teams to support chief I I it's I it's horrible to talk you under such circumstances but thanks to your leadership and I look forward to talking to you soon Mike take care thank you that was chief Jerry was the Phoenix police department very difficult time in policing in general with the changes because of covert nineteen we've talked about changes in procedures arrest versus summons we know that the jails are are trying to do what they can to limit the amount of traffic in and out of the jails they're letting people that are on work release stay home in many cases we know that they're doing this in the D. O. C. the DLC has made an announcement that here in Arizona department of corrections has made an announcement they've worked out a deal with the jails to not introduce new inmates into the jail systems into the prison systems and the jails are agreeing to hang on to some of these inmates what they're trying to do with that transfer cobit nineteen into the system now I'll be honest I don't know to what level they have been doing a lot of testing within the walls of the jails and prisons but we have not had any confirmed cases the spread in the community right now is harsh and that is with social distancing physical distancing almost impossible to do physical distancing within an institution and this could be something that could be horrendous inside the jail or prison systems so just something to keep an eye on your interaction with police officers what you can do is make sure that you are giving them information is so that.

"Repair called Howard Air sharper points commentary presented by Schwartz laser eye center I'm embarrassed to say that my wife and I had some crossword yesterday but it showed me that I need to follow the advice about the serve up right now we need to calm down during our lock down especially about stuff that's out of our control like an invisible virus having very visible effects on the health of many families and for most of us are families economic health we also can't control governor Doug Ducey's are president trump's decision we will be extending our guidelines to April thirtieth whether those decisions go too far or not far enough we have to accept them calmly because we can't change them but we do have control over is how we respond to what takes place within our own home if I may I'd like to quote the nineties band smashing pumpkins despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage our homes can feel like cages with so many of us working from home living on top of each other twenty four seven and if you're jobless and stuck at home that pressure cooker can easily blow its lid and a minor domestic disagreement can lead to a major crime we lost a true hero article was a thirty one year veteran of the department while he was on duty commander Carmichael oversaw patrol operations for the entire Phoenix police department but he took his first duty to protect citizens seriously enough that he rushed into a home where a domestic dispute was going on between roommates he was shot and killed just a few months before his planned retirement domestic violence situations often start with a small disagreement and when people pour drugs and alcohol on their stress you can become a raging fire we're practicing social distancing by staying home let's also practice a motional distancing within those walls in the form of tolerance love and quick forgiveness Hey we should already have a lot of practice at this right when it's a hundred ten outside the we all pretty much shelter in place join Jim Sharpe Jamie west and the toward Dan every weekday morning at five right here on Arizona's morning news lawmakers in Washington have passed the largest stimulus package in American history yeah there's already concerned it might not be enough if the fourth phase were to happen what would include and when would it take place just days after the passage of a historic two trillion dollar stimulus package hints that more action might be needed Republican senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska told reporters today all of us need to be thinking about it as for what a fourth phase would include accounts he said we need to look at mental health and behavior health issues she also mention energy tax credits house speaker Nancy Pelosi also brought a fourth phase talking about stronger worker protections expanded like pensions an increase in food stamps and more money for state and local governments though both bodies of Congress are expected to be on recess at least until April twentieth Alex for shape ABC news Washington it's six twenty one and as you've heard here on KTAR Phoenix police officer was killed last night former DPS director Frank Milstead joins the Mike Broomhead show this morning and says he knew commander Greg Carmichael you would spend quite a bit of time with commander colonel do you guys serve together yes I've known him basically my whole career we were traveling together world motors we worked technical support zero we worked out on the west side and merry bill together he was just one of those guys who is always there he's always street cop as supervisor for you know crew police operations I'm not even sure you ever really had a true administering minutes career he was always out like crime yet to to be is late in his career as he was and to be the seniority that he had for him to be on a scene on a Sunday night a lot of cops are saying was showed everybody the kind of copy was all the way through his career yeah that's exactly it so the duty commander position though and I was promoted to duty commander as a new commander and it's really the the job of the duty commander to be the chief of police in the off hours of that apartment so you know after five or six o'clock in the evening and on weekends you're out there to represent the cheats and all these situations and to be out and about and I think what people are saying is exactly true that doesn't mean you have to be out on the street going to calls with officers but that's the kind of guy he was he went out and he was part of the team he was a shoulder to shoulder work kind of guy real short guy I mean you know I I think the picture of him when I saw it last night at the TV as much as it hurt to see the picture it made me smile in the sense that he's got no expression on his face and that duty photo I mean that just kind of him he was that guy that was always store can never got rattled this is a community hard you know three officers shot in one incident I don't know that that ever happened in Phoenix but for someone like yourself that spent so many years and now you are enjoying your retirement this is gonna be a blow to his family him being just months away for that retirement the family guy that he is or was we have had heard these tragedies opinions PT before out on nineteenth Avenue in Las Vegas off your walls and white were both killed and another officer was shot it's it's happened a number of times and it's when John the musky and Anthony were killed in a crash at seven St Hubert we lost to that same day it's it's very difficult to know that your friends get killed at work and I've lost so many good friends I've been around the families of those who have lost I've done you would use for those who have been killed in the line of duty it is a violent job most days are great most days herb incredibly rewarding but these days are very difficult to overcome and it not only takes a toll on that family who will be forever devastated it takes a toll on the entire department because you are once again reminded how fragile your existence here is and how fragile life is if you'd like to hear more be sure.

"But grew up with these officers so if you look around at the lives that have been touched by and interacted with in the leaders that have come out of the same time period or generation as commander Carmichael Carmichael Frank Milstead DPS director who just will retire this Friday will be his last day worked hard with this officer and I was talking about working with with our commander Carmichael for such a long time this is the former the outgoing DPS director Frank Milstead I've known him basically my whole career we were tracking here together world motors we worked technical support bureau we worked out on the west side and merry built together he was just one of those guys who is always there he's always street cop as supervisor for you know true police operations I'm not even sure you ever really had a true administering minutes career he was always out like crime your Phoenix police chief Jeri Williams talks about her time knowing great Kerr particle for over thirty years I can tell you this about Greg I knew him for thirty years he and I worked together in a precinct and used to enjoy way too much church's chicken on duty so to be able to stand here today and say that one of my good friends as losses troubling Mercedes fortune who is the P. I or the public information officer for Fenix PD in an update this morning and was talking with there is on the news with Jim Sharpe talked about her interactions with the commander the interaction that I did have with him an incredible man love to be a police officer and he actually wanted to before you retired he wanted this assignment he wanted to be leading the operations for patrol think about it is working weekends thirty one years of service so he really wanted to do that job we are we in some degree pay our respects on the error to when things like this happen but more so now the prospect that there will not be a proper send off a proper thank you and a good bye from the community as much for the family as it is for the community is a part of what we're dealing with with covert nineteen it has been for me personally it's been a horrible week I lost two cousins this week none of them to cope with nineteen I will not be able to attend their funerals because there won't be public funerals now I make it a point to try to attend the funerals for first responders the fall in the line of duty as a show of respect for what they do and and that won't happen for these families for this family for the family of commander conical they will not be able to steal and see the embrace from the community and I can tell you having lost a brother in the war in combat there is something comforting about the embrace of the community at large I understand that there are those that lose loved ones every single day two and they love them as much as I love my brother is this family loves this commander and they won't feel that embracing the community it is about what my brother did to serve his country but it's also about the thirty one years that this commander spent serving his community that the community would love to thank the family you're at the very tail end of your career you've got a few months left before retirement the expectation was going to be that they were going to ride off into the sunset together and they would live out their days enjoying retirement and yesterday afternoon slash evening this family was given the news that that's not going to happen that their lives are changed irreparably now normally under these circumstances and I'm sure that their officers there is an officer assigned to the family that they are going to have a liaison that there will be something that happens within the agency but one of the things when walking this dark road that is comforting is the comfort of the community at large and sadly that's not going to happen in the short term the only thing I can hope is that what happens in this time is the community doesn't reach out in the community goes back to its sense of normalcy and there is no such thing as normal for that family ever again and there are some dark days where there is loneliness and there is then their sadness and anger maybe and that's when the people closest to them for the most instrumental maybe and I don't know this maybe when all of this covert nineteen stuff is over there will be a time when there can be a public display of gratitude and maybe it will come at a time when the family needs it most in the meantime I would say to the police community at large we as citizens can reach out to them today there are a lot of places you can donate the Phoenix police officers association you can donate to them you can donate to plead the Phoenix law enforcement association there are a number of places where those donations go directly to the family they will go directly to the family of not only the fallen officer but the two injured officers as well and there's a number of ways that you can do that there are ways that you can thank police officers in general whether it's with your children that are home now making up cards let them up read about it you know read about this officer's career and the respect that it's it's not just that he lost his life in the way he lived that we honor the fact that thirty one years into his career with only a few months to go he was still the commander over patrolling on a Sunday afternoon was out there with the cops on the street doing the job of the street cop that is a unique attitude in a police officer that there's not a day that this officer is saying Hey it's time for me to slow down until I hang it up for the last time so it is a desperately sad time for this family for the community for the Phoenix police family if there's something you can do find the precinct where you live you know they all have and they all have names in Phoenix but everywhere there's different places you can find out and there's something you can do to encourage them to thank them to let them know that you're praying for them because you understand the sadness there feeling now net this is another level of us coming together as a community and if for some reason you have an interaction with a police officer whether you're pulled over or you have to call the police or something happens give them a break give them some space let them know you understand what they're going through make them feel safer about what's happening I just think it's the least that we can do in a moment in Arizona man in killed himself ingesting a dangerous product to clean his his aquarium now there are warnings that are out there but there's another level the story we have to revisit we'll get to that in just a moment if you want to do something for your home while you're sitting around your home when you're looking around at what needs to be done if you have a home that was built and they were billed with builder series equipment your windows and doors could be the first thing you change out that.

"The KTAR news app you will get up to the minute information on all the things that are going on tragic story beginning yesterday afternoon in the north valley about a Phoenix police officer who had spent over thirty years with Fenix PD killed in the line of duty two other officers injured we understand the dangers of police work we have been talking about covert nineteen and the dangers of covert nineteen to first responders I have friends that are with the fire department I have friends that are in police I have a lot of very close friends that are in first responders are working in the nursery as nurses or doctors it is a dangerous time to be in the medical health field or first responders how dangerous is it right now the numbers in Arizona which are prone to choke cherry change at a moment's notice they could change at any time there are over seven hundred cases of covert nineteen now confirmed in a New York City they are saying that it could be over nine hundred by the end of today this is within the NYPD this story a Harlem detective the first NYPD officer to die from corporate a virus nearly seven hundred members tested positive and then an updated story this morning said that number could jump to as high as nine hundred there are almost as many confirmed cases inside the NYPD as there are total cases in all of Arizona what we know so far is that in the city of Phoenix one officer tested positive for corona virus had not returned to work since vacation that's the only positive case we know of in the city of Phoenix with any city employee one employee with the Maricopa county sheriff's department also testing positive for covert nineteen they were taking necessary steps to try to prevent the spread and to kill the virus so we have been blessed fortunate lucky whatever word you want to use that it hasn't permeated our first responders now without getting too and I'm not I don't want this is not a day on any level to start getting political about things but I have been speaking for years I have been the most the longest rants I have gone on is about how immensely understaffed the Phoenix police department is that they are way understaffed this statistic that everybody that lives in Phoenix should be listening to the city of Philadelphia is smaller in population and smaller in land mass than the city of Phoenix both categories Philadelphia is smaller than Phoenix they have double the amount of police officers in the city of Philadelphia and the city of Phoenix does double you talk about a covert nineteen outbreak we now are seeing community spread there are people rattling the cages now saying that we should have a state wide closure I'm not necessarily in agreement with that but first responders are just that they are on the front lines so where as of Phoenix fire and I'm saying Phoenix I apologize the other agencies around the valley I live in Phoenix that's why talk Phoenix but Phoenix fire the weather's paramedics EMTs firefighters have the ability in most cases to get the P. P. E. in place before interacting with someone in hospital settings in medical settings they also have the ability to be in the full PP personal protection equipment before interacting with people police officers do not always have that ability so when you call nine one one for the police they may be asking you questions they don't normally ask in order to keep officers safe just comply I understand that there are HIPAA laws that are enacted that are out there you're protected a lot of ways I agree with you but in order to keep law enforcement as safe as possible to give them the ability because as you saw last night with the horrible tragedy that happened we're gonna talk more about it than just a few moments that police officers are reactionary force they only apply the amount of force necessary dictated by the person that they're interacting with when you get pulled over by a police officer they may seem a little short with you at first a little bit apprehensive at first because they don't know you and they don't know how that traffic stop is gonna go when I get pulled over all the windows in my vehicle all four windows in my vehicle go down my hands are either on the door frame around my steering wheel and I don't reach for documents until the officer tells me to I always inform them that I have a firearm in my vehicle and where it is because I want them to understand that I'm putting their safety first and when you do that nine times ninety nine point nine times out of a hundred that interaction goes completely differently in the next five minutes when an officer I understand you're making them feel safe we have an added level of that now with an airborne illness that they have to assume everybody has because one police officer become symptomatic or exposed that officer is off two weeks quarantine in an agency that is already stretched very thin staying healthy making sure you're staying within protocol is very important but when something goes sideways that officer doesn't have time to glove up in mask up and do other things and there's a lot of times when they can't maintain social distancing it is a requirement of their job to take you into custody or someone so New York City is dealing with over seven hundred and I don't know the exact number this morning the projection was by the end of today by today the numbers would be at nine hundred NYPD officers covert nineteen positive now the obviously a much bigger city much more densely populated and a much bigger agency dealing with the pandemic that is spread a lot thicker and a lot faster than it has in Phoenix only one cop in Phoenix has been diagnosed as positive and as far as we know that cop did not interact with any co workers after getting back from vacation went straight into quarantine in a moment we talk about the tragedy that happened in north Phoenix a commander with the Phoenix police department over thirty years experience gives his life in the line of duty we're gonna talk about commander Carmichael and the other officers involved we're gonna do that coming up next you know zero rise is been in the valley for quite a long time the product that they use for services called powered water no soap no detergents no harsh chemicals it is an excellent cleaner I use it on my countertops and appliances I don't want chemicals near the food I eat but now more than ever the biggest filtering your home your carpets what about your couch what about your chairs your mattresses and the germs in the allergens in the things that they hold in place if you want to have one level of clean and protection the above and beyond what you've been doing lately they are working hard there people will still come out they're taking all the necessary precautions but they'll make sure that your home is ready and.

"Being here it's the Mike Broomhead show I'm here until noon we appreciate you spending part of your morning with us a lot of choices we appreciate you get your information from my speaking of which social media at Broomhead show was the show Twitter account at Broomhead KTA ours my personal Twitter account please follow both loved interactive you are neither one of those to the Mike Broomhead show fan page on Facebook or Mike Broomhead all one word on Instagram while you're at it download the K. T. A. R. news app every bit of information you're going to get from what had that tragedy last night in Phoenix for covert nineteen you're gonna get all the information on the app as soon as it's happening brand new numbers out of the state of Arizona one hundred eleven hundred fifty seven confirmed cases in Arizona of of covert nineteen all fifteen Arizona counties now having at least one case of covert nineteen and so now we've got those numbers twenty confirmed dead the updated numbers are obviously on the increases was predicted and the big news is that the governor of Arizona has called it went along in conjunction a joint statement being made with the superintendent public schools Kathy Hoffman that in alignment with yesterday's updated federal guidance today we are announcing the closing announcing the extension of school closures through the remainder of the school year so at least now errands can plan for not having their children in school through the end of the school year now what this looks like for graduations I have a niece in Florida who's a senior in high school what will her graduation B. like obviously Arizona Florida different states but if they do this in Florida what does this do for her walking across the stage that's a big day for people in the grand scheme of what's happening in the world it is not a big deal in the grand scheme of her life it will not be a big deal long term but in the short term this is what people are talking about a forsaking graduations whether it's college or high school graduations you know eat your your children in a sea of promotional ceremony our kids going to be promoted on to the next grade what will that look like there are eight there are standards that must be met to move on to the next grade level and long term if you move some of these kids on to the next grade level without the proper preparation what does it do to them down the road we know that for the reason why third grade is such a big deal is we understand reading at grade level in third grade prepares you for everything else teachers will tell you that we are they learn to read through grade three they read to learn for the rest of their education and preparing them to read at grade level by the third grade is instrumental in the possible success throughout the rest of their education that's why we're there is such a push to get third graders to read at grade level we understand that in Arizona we were not meeting that they were under fifty percent of Arizona students that were reading at grade level in the third grade both for this challenge is a challenge for everyone and the discipline that it's going to take in homes can you get your children is this the time that maybe maybe part of the silver lining will be parents being more involved in the education of their children finding out exactly where your children are right now and I think that's making the best use of this time is going to be helpful are we able to sit down with our kids now and decide okay where are you find out and then help them one of the things I'll give credit to to my to my ex wife has served as my our grandchildren she has done a terrific job with them because she was able to she was able to be with them for extended periods of time when they were very young teaching them how to read and and to do those kinds of mind games that prepared them and the success seen with my grand children now in schools is that they learned early they had a really good foundation going into the school system then you know my my daughters as well working with their children and it's just a big benefit and maybe now as we are asked to quarantine in place self quarantine social distance physical distance how many different terms are gonna come up with is the silver lining now that we're being forced to take that deep breath and see what we can do to make sure on the other side of this we didn't waste the time and I understand it's a difficult situation for parents child care is an issue anyway but when you're talking about no school whatsoever it becomes for a lot of people in ominous problem and so we've got a lot that we're dealing with but the governor saying schools will be closed throughout the rest of the school year so now we plan for what do we do if if we are returning to some sense of normalcy before the normal summer months come what happens with the children then can the churches and civic groups step up and open their doors when it's safe when kids can congregate again if it's before the end of the school year what we do in that regard there's a lot of unanswered questions as we move forward the president the United States of the new number saying that we are extending the the the requirements are the right but I should say requirements the suggestions on what to do through the end of April the president says he believes we are going to start seeing a peak in all of this nationally by Easter I'm anxious to see where the numbers are in Arizona what I mean by that is how we compared to the rest of the nation we were talking police agencies if you won't moments ago and more details on this as we go along but we know that there are over seven hundred police officers to prediction it would be it would be nine hundred police officers in the city of New York that are coded nineteen positive they're almost as many police officers in the city of New York that are a covert nineteen positive as there are entire cases in the state of Arizona at last count only one city employee in Phoenix and that is a police officer positive with covert nineteen that number may go up but we know that it has not permeated policing yet like it has in New York what are we gonna do to make sure that doesn't happen if you have large numbers of first responders that need to be quarantined it could be very very dangerous so coming up in just a few moments we're gonna talk about commander Carmichael and a little more of an update on what happened the situation of the Phoenix police officer killed in the line of duty that's coming up next you know if you are considering that many people are right now refinancing your mortgage for a number of reasons number one interest rates have never been probably never will be as low as they are right now so if you just want to lower your interest rate on your mortgage and mortgage payment financially that'd be good for a lot of families right now now is the time another reason is the necessity for cash taking some of that equity out right now.
