Police officers demonstrated the T3 electric stand-up vehicle's siren and flashing lights.

The man accused of using a Burbank officer's gun against him and his partner during a scuffle at a Kmart last year was double-handcuffed because of his size and to allow for greater range of motion, according to testimony Tuesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court. Jamie Willard - the man accused of shooting at two Burbank police officers after he was able to wrangle one of the guns while under arrest at Kmart for an alleged shoplifting - required two connected handcuffs because his 6-foot-tall, 220-pound frame was too large for a single cuff, one of the officers testified during the preliminary hearing.

A woman enters unlocked homes, looking in mirrors combing what she thinks are silk worms coming from her head. A man is holed up in a room full of guns as he fights voices in his head that are telling him to kill himself. Prior to the establishment of a new mental health team at the Burbank Police Department, these sorts of calls would elicit a purely police-centric response that would do nothing to address the root of the problem, officials say. Now, the team is funneling these people away from the law enforcement grind and into a system where they can be connected to services that have a more long-term effect.
