Meeting called to order at 11:00am

Member Comments:

Political Donations: It was suggested that the Board seek a vote of the PPA membership prior to making political endorsements and contributions.  Due to the short window of time involved, it was explained that it is not feasible to seek a vote of the entire membership; rather, the Board employs a thorough vetting process, selecting only those candidates it believes represent the best interests of the membership.

Corporal Program:  The purpose of the Corporal program was discussed, specifically regarding a lack of goals and function.  It was also noted that there is a similar lack in NeoGov with respect to the Traffic Unit.  It was decided to bring the issue forward at the next meeting with the Chiefs.

Risk Management:  A new concern regarding Risk Management’s use of surveillance and the new Occupational Health physician were both discussed at length.  This issue is also to be brought forward at the next Meeting with the Chiefs.

Board Discussion Items:

  • Update on Meeting with the Chiefs regarding Officer Involved Shootings/ Use of Force/ Significant Bodily Injury: PPA representatives are continuing to meet with the chiefs regarding policies and protocols. Information will be communicated to members as it becomes available.
  • Use of Fallen Officer Fund vs. Fallen Officer Relief Fund: The CSPPA Fallen Officer Fund supports CSPPA members, and as such, will continue to provide financial relief associated with duty related critical incidents. The newly formed Fallen Officer Relief Fund, a 501 (c) (3) entity, serves as a vehicle to distribute designated community donations, fundraiser income, etc., to officers involved in critical incidents, whether or not they are CSPPA members. Non-designated funds will remain in the FoRF account for distribution as determined by its Board of Directors.
  • Manpower: As discussed at the August meeting, the Board is aware of member concerns regarding staff shortages within Patrol and the use of hire-backs for mitigation. The issue is to be brought forward at the September meeting with the Chiefs, specifically with respect to long-term planning.
  • Compensation Update: PPA representatives, along with Chief Carey, met with Mayor Suthers and Chief of Staff Jeff Greene to continue discussing compensation for 2019. Mayor Suthers remains committed to getting PD to market for 2019. Cost of labor will be factored in, as will comparator agency increases.
  • Civilian Pay Raises: Clarification regarding the timing of pay raises for civilian employees will be brought before the Chiefs at the September monthly meeting. 
  • Risk Management: CSPPA representatives, along with Chief Carey, met with Risk Management to discuss records release requirements. As discussed in detail in the August Centurion, claimants are able to select records to be released, rather than releasing their entire 5-year medical history. Additional concerns, as noted above in member comments, were discussed as well.
  • Retiree Board Seat: The Board of Directors voted to appoint recently retired CSPD Officer Drew Holland to a board seat for a 2-year term to begin October 2018 and end December 2020.

Board Discussion Items:

Protocols for Officer Involved Shootings/ Use of Force/ Significant Bodily Injury: CSPPA Board and Staff members received numerous inquiries regarding the grand jury indictment of a veteran CSPD officer in July2018. PPA representatives met with Chief Carey shortly after the indictment, and the topic will be discussed further at the August 22nd Meeting with the Chiefs. Discussion to include policies and protocols in place to guide the process when an officer is involved in such an event.

PPA Media Statements: It was reiterated that the CSPPA will make no statements regarding ongoing investigations. Statements regarding the support that a member officer receives from the PPA may be acceptable, but will be determined on a case by case basis and will not violate an individual’s right to privacy.

Fallen Officer Relief Fund: The Fund has received generous donations from the community, the vast majority of which are designated for Officer Cem Duzel. The non-designated funds will remain in the F.o.R.F. for needs in the future. Although not yet determined, there was also discussion that all or part of the funds that are currently in the CSPPA (c)(5) FoF account may be donated over by the Board of Directors to the new (c)(3).

Use of Member Benefits: The practice of non-members utilizing PPA member benefits on an a la carte basis, such as for background checks and attending the Christmas gala, has grown in recent years. The Board determined that this is not within the scope of the CSPPA, and as such, non-members will no longer be able to avail themselves of any benefits. The only exception to this is in the case of spouses; if one spouse is a member, then both are eligible to attend PPA member events.

  • 1st: T. Rekar
  • 2nd: M. Peterson
  • All Approved

Manpower (Patrol): The Board is aware of member concerns regarding staff shortages within Patrol and the use of hire-backs for mitigation. The issue is to be brought forward at a future Chiefs meeting.

Political Endorsements: It was determined that political endorsements will be determined on a case by case basis, but in general will be restricted to municipal candidates. Donations to candidates will entail a vote separate from the endorsement. 

Holiday Gala: Beginning with the 2018 Christmas gala, only members will be eligible to win prizes. Non-members; the CSPPA Board of Directors; and CSPPA employees and their families are no longer eligible to win prizes.

  • 1st:M. Peterson
  • 2nd: T. Rekar
  • All Approved

Miscellaneous:

  • CSPPA engagement in critical incident peer support was discussed and will be brought forward for discussion at a future meeting with the Chiefs.
  • Effective immediately, office hours will be from 8am – 4pm Monday through Friday. The office will no longer close at 2pm on Wednesdays.

Executive Director Report:

Quarterly Membership Review: There was a net gain of one member in 2nd quarter 2018, yielding a total membership of 925. There was a decrease in the sworn category due to the retirement of 10 officers, however, nine of these kept their CSPPA membership, transitioning over to the retiree category. These numbers do not reflect Academy recruits who have signed on as PPA members; they will be included in the third quarter report.

Retiree Reunion: Turnout was very high for the retiree reunion, held at Navajo Hogan on Friday, July 20th. The CSPPA will continue its financial support of this event moving forward.

CSPPA Picnic Wrap-up: While a sizeable number of retirees attended the CSPPA 2nd Summer Picnic on Saturday, July 21st at Bear Creek Park, there was a low turnout with respect to current members. As such, the Board decided to discontinue this event and will explore other avenues to reach out to membership in the summer months.

Compensation Meetings: PPA representatives continue to meet with City officials regarding compensation for 2019, advocating for a full market increase; the next scheduled meeting with Mayor Suthers is to occur in late August.

The meeting adjourned at 7:30pm; the Board convened executive session to discuss personnel related issues.

Meeting called to order at 11:00am

Member Concerns:

  • The PPA’s contribution to officers, their families, and the civilian affected by the EPSO/CSPD February 5th critical incident was acknowledged and appreciated. It was recommended that the PPA keep members and the community apprised of its outreach to the local law enforcement community.

 

Member Discussion Items:

State Legislative Review:

  • Several pending bills pertinent to law enforcement were reviewed. Specific to CSPPA member interests, HB18-1037, which would allow concealed handgun permit holders to carry concealed handguns on school grounds, was postponed indefinitely.
  • Senator Owen Hill indicated he may be interested in carrying a 2019 bill to permit law enforcement officers statewide to register personal vehicles at their place of business. CSPPA to meet with Senator Hill to further discuss.
  • CSPPA Executive Director met with Richard Radabaugh and Rachel Swazey to continue discussions on extending healthcare and worker’s compensation benefits for families of officers killed in the line of duty. In its current iteration the bill would apply to State employees only. An effort is underway at the Capitol to add the work comp component, which would apply to county and municipal employees, but is not gaining traction due to legislative rules regarding bill introductions. 

 

Retiree Event:

  • The CSPPA has been asked to host a gathering for retired CSPD officers on Friday evening, July 20th. Venue options and pricing are being explored. Retirees are also to be included the following day, July 21st, at the CSPPA Annual Family Summer Party at Bear Creek Regional Park.

PPA Media Request:

  • A local news media representative has requested an on-camera interview with CSPPA’s Executive Director to discuss financials dating back to 2013 – 2015. He was made aware that the CSPPA complies with transparency regulations, and that our Form 990 tax filing is available to any member of the public via the Secretary of State’s website.

 

Fallen Officer Fund 501 (c) 3 formation:

  • CSPPA Executive Director requested approval from the Board to pursue a 501 (c) 3 designation for the Fallen Officer Fund. Given its current 501 (c) 5 status, donations may be claimed as business deductions only; with a change in designation, however, donations will be considered tax deductible. This will improve capacity to solicit donations for the Fallen Officer Fund from the general public.
