Introductions
Introduction of a new CPAB board member Sam Dobry by Larry Stearn.

Constitutional policing:
Captain Pitcher explained what constitutional policing is and how we do it.  He explained that in order to facilitate a detention, we need reasonable suspicion.  And to arrest, we need probable cause.  He stated we will be having a community meeting with guest speaker that will go into more depth and further detail.

Crime Update:
Captain Pitcher stated we are in the midst of a (4) year crime reduction in Devonshire.  He further shared that while the City has enjoyed a lengthy decline, Devonshire is the only division that consistently lowered crime, year by year.  The credit goes to the Officers for being so proactive and hard working. If everything goes well, we could be looking at a total crime reduction of 36-37% for the last four years.

Captain Pitcher spoke about shoplifting, as it is a major issue in Devonshire.  In addition to his plan of deploying officers and VST members to the shopping centers, he asked to get feedback or ideas from CPAB members for our event action plan during the coming holidays. Shoplifting is an issue every year, especially around the holidays, and he is looking for ideas to combat the crime.

He spoke about aggravated assaults and explained how that was tied to Domestic Violence.  Officer Caplette addressed the trends in reporting and the breakdown of who is committing the crimes.  There was a discussion on the frequency of domestic violence and the cultural factors involved between the different ethnic groups.

Reception Area remodel update:
Larry Stearn addressed the group and stated the funds for the remodel was at about 60% raised with future commitments which will exceed the fund raising goal.  Larry communicated that Dennis Dishaw had contacted a couple of large banks and they pledged $2500 and $5000 respectively.

It was also discussed the need for an itemization estimate to submit to the donors.  We also needed to complete our fund raising efforts by the end of the year, as it was our 2014 goal.

New business:
Larry Stearn spoke of the upcoming CPAB summit that will be on November 1, 2014.  He added that he and the captain would arrange transport for the CPAB members who wish to attend.

Larry Stearn spoke of his experience at roll call on August 6, 2014, and thanked the members who attended.  He felt that a majority of the officers were not familiar with CPAB’s purpose, goals, and its members.  He suggested CPAB needs to be more visible.  He also spoke about his ride-along experience with Sgt. Scott and his visit to Valley Communications Division.

The Business Watch program that was started was not initially successful.  Dennis Dishaw proposed a website for businesses only to address their needs.  He stated by next meeting, there will be a better version to explore the site and have the board members review the design and functionality. He also stated he is looking into a councilperson to address the financial needs of the website designing and maintenance.

Officer Caplette took photographs of the attending CPAB members for their new identification cards and verified the current roster for verification.  Larry further stated he will reach out to non-attending members for clarification on their intent to stay on the board and reiterate the boards’ expectation from its members.

Meeting was adjourned at 2000 hrs.
