The police department recently changed its policy. Today, if candidates don't have the college courses or military experience, they may qualify through work experience.

A department recruiting web site, , spells out the details:"five years of full-time responsible, verifiable work experience and a High School Diploma or education equivalency."

Any applicant who qualifies under this rulemust obtain an associate's degree within four years of the date of employment.

“We don’t necessarily see it where the standard was dropped. We see it as where we deferred it," said Memphis Police Director Michael Rallings.

"Because again, we recognize that agencies that surround us, including the Shelby County Sheriff’s office, don’t require college, but they still have some of the finest men and women serving in law enforcement that I’ve met."

Memphis police officers stand at attention during the Fallen Heroes Remembrance Service at Memorial Park Funeral Home and Cemetery in East Memphis on May 10, 2018.

Sheriff's spokesman Earle Farrell confirmed the department doesn't require a college degree and said thatlike MPD, it also allows transfers of officersfrom other police agencies.

"We're constantly looking for people just like the MPD is," Farrell said.

The MPD also offers a different route to join the force - Police Service Technicians are unarmed employees who handle tasks such ascrowd control andresponding to minor car crashes. These employees can be young as 18 , and the department offers college tuition support and a fast-track process through the police academy, should they wish to become full-fledged officers.

Memphis Police AssociationpresidentMichael Williams said his organization opposes the loosening of the college requirements for new police recruits.

He said college classes help ensure thatofficers have the writing skills to complete the reports that can help decide court cases.

He said citizens deserve quality officers:"They don’t think of us lowering the standards which have been successful in the past to be able to garner more officers. If that’s the case, then there’s a problem somewhere.”

Williams argues the city should fully restore the retiree health insurance and pension benefits that the Memphis City Council reduced during a bitter public fight in 2014. City officials have described the benefit changes as painful but necessary steps to stabilize city finances.

It's not clear exactly when MPD's change of the college rules went into effect. Williams said it was in the last few months,though Rallings, the police director, said he wasn't sure.

Police academy graduates faced family and friends during a graduation ceremony at First Baptist Church-Broad on Thursday, August 10, 2017.

The old standards that required college were still listed on a Dec. 26, 2016 snapshot of an MPD recruiting web site available through the Fine Jewelry Genuine Blue Topaz and Cubic Zirconia 14K Yellow Gold Over Brass Ring htntwA

KANSAS CITY -- Another game, another slam, another win. Don't you love it when a plan comes together?

Yan Gomes gave the Indians a 6-4 come-from-behind victory over the Royals at sizzling Kauffman Stadium on Tuesday night with a sixth-inning grand slam that turned a two-run deficit into a two-run lead.

It was the eighth slam of the year for the Indians and the second in as many days. Francisco Lindor's slam Monday night in the fourth inning broke a 2-2 tie and ignited the Tribe's 9-3 win.

Cody Allen pitched the ninth Tuesday for his 17th save and first on the trip. It was Allen's 139th career save with the Indians, tying him for the franchise lead with Bob Wickman.

Danny Duffy (4-8, 5.99) entered the sixth with a 4-2 lead. He walked Edwin Encarnacion and hit Brandon Guyer with a pitch to start the inning. Yonder Alonso sent a double-play grounder to shortstop Adalberto Mondesi, but he couldn't handle the ball cleanly and the Indians had the bases loaded.

Manager Terry Francona raved about Guyer's hustle to second base.

"It's like instant energy, especially when you're on the road," said Francona. "Those are plays that don't show up in the scorebook, but he got a very good secondary lead and he hustled his butt off to second and all of a sudden, we have bases loaded and nobody out."

Mondesi wasn't scheduled to start, but when third baseman Mike Moustakas was a late scratch because of back spasms, veteran shortstop Alcides Escobar moved to third and Mondesi came off the bench to play short.

Gomes wasted no time against Duffy. After taking the first pitch for a ball, he drove an 84 mph change up over the left field wall for a 6-4 lead. It was the third slam in Gomes' career and gave him 10 homers for the season.

"That's one of the things where, you get a chance like that to cut the lead a little bit and I was able to get a pitch up and drive it," said Gomes.

Gomes said all the pressure is on the pitcher in a no-out, bases-loaded situation.

"The advantage is totally on our side," said Gomes. "Whether you chop one into the ground to get a run home or something like that. He has to make a pitch and all I have to do is put the bat on the ball and let it drive someone in."

Rookie right-hander Shane Bieber (4-0, 2.97) went six innings for the win, but the Royals put some scuff marks on him. They reached him for four runs on nine hits.

The Indians took a 2-0 lead in the first. Lindor and Michael Brantley opened the game with singles to put runners on the corners. Jose Ramirez singled off Duffy's glove to score Lindor.

Duffy loaded the bases on a walk to Brandon Guyer, and Alonso delivered Brantley with a sacrifice fly.

The Royals came right back to take a 4-2 lead against Bieber with two runs each in the first and second innings. Lucas Duda hit a 436-foot two-run homer in the first. Bieber allowed three hits in the second as Whit Merrifield made it 3-2 with a single and Rosell Herrera doubled home Merrifield for a 4-2 lead.

"That was an interesting start," said Gomes. "The first two innings, whether they're hard hit or not, they're moving the ball around and gives up four runs.

"You just don't see many young guys be able to (recover) and take that through six innings and settle in. That was the definition of settling in."

Bieber did not let the Royals expand the lead. Guyer helped him in right field as he made a sliding catch against Jorge Bonifacio with Duda on second to end the fifth inning. Duda reached on a long double to the gap in right center.

In the second, Guyer chased down Hunter Dozier's long drive to the fence in right to start the inning. If not for that catch, the Royals may have had a bigger inning than they did.

Guyer was left the game after fouling a ball off his left knee in the ninth. X-rays were negative.

The Royals, who are 36 games below .500 and have lost 16 of their last 19 games, challenged again in the eighth. Dozier, with Salvador Perez at second, singled through the middle with two out off Allen. Perez tried to score as Lindor, thinking Perez would stop at third, took the relay throw with his back to the plate.

When he saw Perez was trying to score, he threw home to Gomes. Perez was originally called safe, but the Indians challenged the call and it was overturned after a short replay review.

What it means

The Indians, by rallying for Tuesday's win, finally pulled even at 4-4 on this nine-game trip. If they can beat the Royals on Wednesday, they could go home with a winning record, which certainly seemed unlikely as they went 2-4 on their first two stops in St. Louis and Oakland.

The pitches

Duffy threw 105 pitches, 64 (62 percent) for strikes. Bieber threw 95 pitches, 65 (68 percent) for strikes.

Thanks for coming

The Indians and Royals drew 19,005 fans to Kauffman Stadium on Tuesday night. First pitch was at 8:15 p.m. with a temperature of 94 degrees and a heat index of 102.


Right-hander Trevor Bauer (7-6, 2.45) concludes this nine-game trip when he faces the Royals on Wednesday night at 8:15. SportsTime Ohio, WTAM/1100 and WMMS/FM will carry the game. Ian Kennedy was scheduled to start for Kansas City, but he was placed on the disabled list before Tuesday's game with a strained left oblique muscle. The Royals did not announce who would start in Kennedy's place.

This will be Bauer's third start against the Royals this season. He's 0-1 with a 3.55 ERA. He's 2-4 against the Royals in his career.

Kansas City is expected to start right-hander Trevor Oaks, who is 5-3 with a 2.00 ERA in 13 starts at Class AAA Omaha.

Standing outside one of Tokyo Station’s numerous exits on a recent summer day, it was easy to see the effectiveness of this deterrent in action. Weary salarymen and aged obaachan passed under the sonic deterrent without changing pace. Among uniform-clad students, however, the reactions were evident—a suddenly quickened pace, a look of confusion or discomfort, and often a cry of urusai! (Loud!) None appeared to connect the noise to the deterrents placed almost flush in the ceiling panels above.

Pointing the best way forward

Rail employees are not exempt from the behavioral hacks of their employers. Perhaps most famously, Japanese train conductors, drivers, and platform attendants are mandated to use the “ Angara Vintage Swiss Blue Topaz Cocktail Ring in Rose Gold qGqdfFZh
” method—called shisa kanko— in executing tasks. By physically pointing at an object, and then verbalizing one’s intended action, a greater portion of the brain is engaged, providing improved situational awareness and accuracy. Studies have repeatedly shown that this technique reduces human error by as much as 85 percent. Pointing-and-calling is now a major workplace safety feature in industries throughout Japan.

So, why don’t train workers everywhere do this? Like so many aspects of Japanese transit culture, shisa kanko has proved resistant to export (though pointing-and-calling has been adopted in modified form by New York City’s transit authority ). In this, as in so many things, Japan’s rail system stands largely alone.

*CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story incorrectly identified this frequency in hertz, not kilohertz.
