General Member Comments:

  • Concern raised regarding the PAT lawsuit. It was generally agreed that it is premature to discuss implications until the case is concluded, and thus it will not be brought forward to the monthly meeting with the Chiefs at this time.

Discussion Items:

  • Membership Update: Several board and staff members hosted lunch at both the CSO and Police Training Academies. More than 30 trainees signed on as members of the PPA; recruitment efforts are continuing with periodic visits to the range and academy.
  • Corporal Proposal Update: The Corporal posting is up and positions are on track to be filled for 2018; currently 24 slots are available, although that is subject to change. 
  • LEOSA CCW Update: Issuing LEOSA CCW compatible identification for separated, as opposed to retired, officers was discussed at the July meeting with the Chiefs. Consistent with current legislation, Chief Carey indicated he is receptive to issuing the necessary ID to officers completing at least 10 years with CSPD. Additional criteria to ensure compliance with respect to safety will be considered and discussed at a future Chiefs’ meeting.
  • Summer Barbecue: Approximately 150 CSPD employees attended the CSPPA’s first family summer barbecue event, held on July 22nd at Fox Run Regional Park. Given the positive feedback from attendees and its affordability, the Board agreed to host the barbecue again next summer.
  • Merchandising: Due to quality issues, 500 new CSPPA coins were returned to the vendor; the re-design is expected in early September.
  • Donation Requests:
    • Rocky Mountain Women in Law Enforcement: request made for silent auction items, conference goody bag items, or a monetary contribution for RMWLE Annual Conference.  The Board approved a $200 donation and gift bag.
