Meeting called to order at 11:00am

Guest: Michael Allen, Senior Deputy District Attorney, 4th Judicial District

  • Mr. Allen, in considering a run for District Attorney, 4th Judicial District in 2020, requested an introductory meeting with the Board of Directors. Topics discussed included creation of a cold case unit; turnover in the DA’s office; expediency of OIS findings; the Brady list; and IA records release to the general public. The Board invited Mr. Allen to return for a more in-depth discussion should he decide to run for DA.

General Member Concerns:

Workman’s Compensation: member requested that the CSPPA support a change in the use of sick time for short term leave due to duty-related injuries. The Board indicated that while such a change would require a State level fix, it would try to better educate members on the 3-day rule and reach out to risk management for clarifying points.

Medical Settlements: some members have signed settlement agreements with the City that precludes them from future employment with any municipal entity, thus disqualifying them from employment under the ADA.   To better understand the retirement process and any associated implications for post-retirement options, it was recommended that consideration be given to hiring a CSPD HR Navigator dedicated to this process. The Board agreed to move the discussion forward at the next meeting with the Chiefs.

Risk Management: Additional clarifying questions were asked regarding the joint CSPPA/Local 5/Risk Management meeting that was held on January 11th.

Subpoenas: Lateral officers that receive subpoenas from their prior agencies currently have to use vacation time to appear in court. A request was made to allow appearances to be covered as time worked. The Board agreed to bring this forward at the next meeting with the Chiefs.

Board Discussion Items:

Load Bearing Vests: The Uniform Standards Committee voted in favor of forming a load bearing vest subcommittee as well as conducting a pilot study. Both CSPPA and Occupational Health representatives are to be included in the subcommittee; information will be disseminated as it becomes available.

Local 5 Collective Bargaining Update: Local 5 again requested that the CSPPA consider supporting its ballot initiative for collective bargaining. The Board declined, reiterating that it has adopted a neutral position.

By Law Revision: The Board voted in favor of revising the by-laws to allow part-time civilian employees of CSPD to be active CSPPA members. While this has been practice for several years, the bylaws had not been updated.

  • ARTICLE II; MEMBERSHIP , Section 2: To become an Active Member of this Association, a person must be a paid sworn officer of the Colorado Springs Police Department, or a full-time civilian employee of the Colorado Springs Police Department. Any person meeting these prerequisites shall, upon application on the prescribed forms and establishment of dues payments, become an Active Member of this Association.

Risk Management: Several issues were discussed, including Rule 5-4 (C), which stipulates that a 5 year history of only those medical records pertaining to the claim at hand must be released. Dissatisfaction with the newly hired Risk Management physician was also expressed, specifically related to MMI rulings and continuing care for work-related injuries. The Board of Directors will continue to discuss these concerns with the Office of the Chief and individual members as warranted.

Miscellaneous: Ameriben representatives will be available at the PPA building on November 13th and 15th by appointment, to review individual concerns regarding health insurance claims.

The Hundred Club, which accepted tax deductible donations on behalf of the CSPPA for many years prior to the start up of the CSPPA’s (c)(3) Fallen Officer Relief Fund, is to return any remaining funds it is holding on the PPA’s behalf for deposit into the (c)(3) account.

Financial Reports: October banking statements unavailable as of meeting date; report to be given at December board meeting.

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

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.

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

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.
