COMMUNICATIONS

Special Victims cases issue ongoing.  Poor communication coming from and inside the department.  The reaction and execution have caused more problems than we started with at the beginning.  The ADC meeting was yesterday morning, and more cases are being opened now due to the discovery letter and investigation.

Please give monthly to PAC if you are not already doing so.

Officers in crisis, how can we help? Tell people about the problem. City policy needs to change.  AA meetings have started at union hall.

Shut down rumors and get the truth out.

Resources are there to help all around, but we do not know what we are not told so get information out to those that can help.

ATO has ongoing fundraisers. Golf Tournament is in October. More fundraisers and events coming up and police memorial services in May.  Thank you to Tim Whitaker for all you do.
