Introductions

Introduction of new Devonshire Patrol Captain Robert Marino by Larry Stearn

Introduction of new CPAB board member Bud Mauro by Larry Stearn

Crime Update:
In the absence of Captain Marino and Pitcher, Sgt Jerrold Wert was tasked with the crime update to CPAB on their behalf. Sgt Wert explained he was new to the division and provided crime status.  He stated property crime was down, but violent crime was up.  With that said, he clarified that homicides were zero for the year, but aggravated assaults were up, which drove up the violent crime numbers.

Sgt Wert was asked about the volume and types of calls during July 4th holiday.  He was unable to provide specific information related to the evening.  However, he stated the evening is typically very heavy on calls and that he was not aware of any major incidents.  Jim Dellinger came forward to state he was working that evening and was also not aware of any major negative events.  Dellinger conducted several directed patrols at problem locations from past years, prior to the large local event. Officer Caplette also stated he was working that day and 5 years prior, but was not working this year.  He further stated that Shepard of the Hills church has a large and well attended event that draws many people from the Valley in hopes to abate the desire for smaller illegal fireworks at residences.

Constitutional policing:
Officer Caplette discussed Constitutional Policing and what it entails. He explained the Department has very specific criteria in order to detain or arrest.  The criteria are reasonable suspicion for a detention and probable cause for an arrest.  Nowhere in the criteria does it allow for any bias based on race, religion, sex, age, etc.  All detentions and arrests must be made on articulable facts solely.  There is zero tolerance for any action that does not adhere to these criteria.

New business:
Larry Stearn gave an update on the fund raising efforts for the front desk remodel project.  He stated we are nearing our goal of $15,000, with current total of $10,270.00 (either funded or en route).  He added that eight members had funded the majority of the fund raising efforts thus far, and he would be following up with the remainder to ensure equity.

Larry then asked the members about their roll call and ride along attendance. While some had attended roll calls and ride-alongs, several more were yet to attend.  One member spoke of his experience with roll call, his ride-along, and several discoveries he had made.  He encouraged other members to do the same to gain perspective. 

Another member inquired about how to reach the most officers at once.  Jim Dellinger explained the purpose of maximum deployment days.  Max Deployment days can be utilized to develop rapport with as many officers in the division.  Larry stated he would find out the next maximum deployment day and advise the board.

Several members expressed their appreciation of the Community Police Academy and encouraged those who had not yet attended to go through the process.  Those who attended found it helpful and insightful.

Lorraine New spoke of the upcoming golf tournament benefiting the PALS Center for youths. Several members had already purchased tickets and lauded her efforts.

An update was given on Erica De Smith.  She is recovering well but still has a long way to go to get back to her prior strength.  The Board wishes her get well soon.

National Night Out was brought up and one of the board members offered his contacts to help make the night more enjoyable for the attendees.  There was a concern regarding the lack of food at the venue for all who attended.

With no other business the meeting was adjourned at 1947 hours.
