It is difficult for me to believe that the first year of my three-year term as 11-99
Foundation Board of Directors Chairman quickly is coming to a close. Where does the
time go? It also is amazing to me that it soon will be 2009; wasn’t it just yesterday
that the world was anticipating the turn of the century and all the challenges that
watershed moment would bring? Much has changed in the world since that time, and
during this past year in particular. The 11-99 Foundation has weathered its share of
change as well.
In early October, I sent a letter to all of our donors sharing news of recent changes the members of our Board of
Directors made to some of the recognition items we provide to donors. In that letter, I also outlined some of the
long-term plans the members of the Board determined were necessary to better prepare our beloved organization as
we embrace the opportunities and address the challenges that will arise in the years ahead. The decisions the members
of our Board made after very, very careful consideration and often wrenching discussions over several years were
formed in large part to preserve the integrity of our enterprise and our relationship with the brave and worthy men
and women of the California Highway Patrol, and to protect our much-valued donors.
We appreciate each of the comments and suggestions we received from our donors regarding these changes. Many
donors expressed an interest in purchasing some of the donor recognition items displayed in the inserts that were
included with my letter. Based on their donation levels, these items are provided to new lifetime-level donors. As
noted in the inserts that accompanied my October letter, the availability of certain donor recognition items is limited
to particular donor levels. If you are interested in purchasing new donor recognition items, I encourage you to send
us an email to email@example.com or send us a letter. The members of our courteous and dedicated staff will
be pleased to do their best to address your requests for donor recognition items.
Earlier this year, in addition to the growing illegal sales and defaming marketing challenges we moved decisively to
address, as noted in my October letter, concerns arose in the media regarding the relationship between CHP employees
and 11-99 Foundation donors. CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow recently emphasized to all CHP employees that he
expects every CHP Officer to enforce the law fairly and equitably and do all each Officer is able to preclude any
perception of undue influence or favoritism during the exercise of her or his law enforcement duties.
I believe it is very important for all of us who are committed to supporting the 11-99 Foundation and the men and
women of the CHP to rededicate ourselves to maintaining the highest standard of conduct as we travel our state’s
roadways. All of us who have championed our association with the 11-99 Foundation and our support of the CHP
with pride should continue to do so, but should do so recognizing that our status as donors to the 11-99 Foundation
and supporters of the CHP does not entitle any of us to any leniency or preferential treatment in any contact involving
any law enforcement agency.
I hope you enjoy reading through this issue of our Star newsletter, which features just a few examples of the dramatic
and lasting impact the assistance provided by our donors has had on the members of our service population during
just the last several months alone. I extend my sincere appreciation and gratitude to each of you and your families
for your continuing support of and dedication to the 11-99 Foundation’s vital mission of service to California Highway
Patrol families. Along with the men and women of the CHP, who selflessly and tirelessly work around the clock to
maintain the safety of our families, you, the donors to and supporters of the 11-99 Foundation, are my heroes!

excited to hear he was the Grand Prize Winner, and would have to choose between a
$50,000 Cash Prize or 2009 Corvette Convertible made possible by TEAM Chevrolet of
Vallejo. Our guests were particularly appreciative when Mr. Silverman said, “Let me tell
you, the men and women of the CHP do an incredible job, and they deserve our support!”
We congratulate all 10 of the major prize winners, and especially June Jaramillo who
won the Super Bowl tickets and package. June is a retired CHP Officer and is the widow of

A Message from the Commissioner
J. A. FARROW
California Highway Patrol
P. O. Box 942898
Sacramento, CA 94298-0001
The radio code “11-99,” Officer Needs Help, brings to mind a vision of crisis. For many
California Highway Patrol employees, it is the recollection of a specific time in which a friend and
co-worker confronted a life altering event. Since its creation in 1981, the 11-99 Foundation has
joined the men and women of the CHP during these times of crisis, providing support that otherwise
would not have been available. Throughout its history the 11-99 Foundation has touched the lives
of countless employees and their families. On their behalf, as well as that of the entire CHP family,
I express our deepest admiration and appreciation to the members of the 11-99 Foundation’s
leadership team and every donor. You have never wavered from your commitment to the welfare
of CHP employees.
Nearly 80 years ago, the CHP was founded with the fundamental mission of providing quality
public service through the enforcement of the law without fear, favoritism or discrimination. Although
the mission of the CHP has grown over the years, our founding principles have never changed. Over
time, concerns have arisen regarding the relationship between the CHP and the 11-99 Foundation,
including the conduct of CHP employees and 11-99 Foundation donors under existing state laws,
policies, and guidelines. I recently emphasized to all CHP employees that I expect them to enforce
the law in keeping with our long standing principles. I appreciate the fact the members of the 11-99
Foundation’s Board of Directors have taken and continue to take steps to preclude any perception of
undue influence or favoritism.
The 11-99 Foundation and the CHP share a long and rich history of service. We must jealousy
protect this history and our excellent reputations, while also continuing to vigilantly ensure neither
perception nor fact is allowed to tarnish either. I am confident the men and women of the CHP and
the members of the 11-99 Foundation family understand this reality. When a CHP employee strays
from accepted practice, we move quickly to correct the behavior. I know the members of the 11-99
Foundation’s leadership team have done and will continue to do the same when a donor conducts
himself or herself inappropriately.
As CHP Commissioner, I sincerely appreciate the unselfish support provided by the members of
the 11-99 Foundation family. The CHP is a public service agency that must remain independent
and focused on its mission. The men and women of the CHP will continue to serve without fear,
favoritism or discrimination. The generous and steadfast support of the 11-99 Foundation family
enhances that proud service. Please accept our humble gratitude.
