PPSLA Goes to Washington, D.C.
By Lt. Mark R. Hafkey, President
PPSLA was able to send three representatives this year to Washington, D.C. during National Police Week to attend NAPO’s 15th Annual TOP COPS Awards Ceremony and NAPO’s Legal Rights and Legislative Seminar, i.e., Sgt. Sean Mattson, Lt. Larry Jacobs, and I. Mike Galloway, of Galloway Asset Management, funded the expenses for two of us so that PPSLA would be represented well at these events.

15th Annual TOP COPS Awards Ceremony This year, 3 officers from the Phoenix PD were among those selected for this prestigious award. PPSLA had heard about the officer involved shooting involving a suspect armed with an Uzi inside of Metro Center Mall and contacted their supervisors to have the officers put in for NAPO’s TOP COPS award. Ultimately, they

were selected with an elite group of other officers from around the country. The ceremony in D.C. was impressive and extremely moving (see photos). Emotions filled the air as John Walsh and an accompaniment of other celebrities described the many heroic events involving each of the TOP COP recipients. Also during the event, NAPO’s President Thomas Nee and Executive Director William Johnson awarded John Walsh a beautiful plaque for hosting our TOP COP ceremonies each year.

Legal Rights and Legislative Seminar On May 13th, your PPSLA representatives attended the Legal Rights and Legislative Seminar which focused on the physiological and psychological effects and the civil and criminal legal NAPO’s Executive Director, William J. Johnson consequences of deadly force (on the left) and two of the featured speakers at the NAPO Legal Rights and Legislative encounters (see photo). Some of the impressive 13, 2008. Several representatives from PPSLA attended the training. itinerary included: • The dynamics of deadly force encounters and their effects of the officer, including the physiological effects, memory lapses and exclusions, and how these effects impact an officers ability to give a statement or assist in the initial investigation. • The collateral effects of deadly force encounters, including media attention, stress and support for the officers family, doubt, and guilt Continued on next page

The seminar was informative and will greatly assist PPSLA in representing its members involved in such encounters. Visiting Arizona’s Congressional Representatives While in Washington, PPSLA spent time meeting with many of our congressional representatives and/or their top staffers throughout the capital (see photos). Some of our stops included: 1. Congressman Trent Franks 2. Senator Jon Kyl 3. Congressman Ed Pastor 4. Congressman John Shadegg 5. Congressman Jeff Flake 6. Senator John McCain
PPSLA representatives Sgt. Sean Mattson, Lt. Larry Jacobs, and Lt. Mark R. Hafkey posing for a picture with Arizona Senator Jon Kyl in his Washington, D.C. office. Sen. Kyl was one of many representatives your PPSLA team met with to discuss critical issues for law enforcement in Arizona, e.g., collective bargaining and skyrocketing healthcare costs for retirees.

From left to right, Sgt. Sean Mattson, Lt. Mark R. Hafkey, Arizona Congressman Jeff Flake, Mesa Police Association representative Jeff Cutler, and Lt. Larry Jacobs. Congressman Flake was kind enough to leave the floor in Washington D.C. to take time to meet with us and discuss critical issues effecting Arizona law enforcement personnel.

During these visits, we lobbied for support for H.R. 980 ñ the national collective bargaining legislation and issues related to the increased healthcare costs for our police retirees. Interestingly enough, while leaving John McCain’s office, we ran into our own Police Chief Jack Harris and Phoenix City Councilman Tom Simplot who apparently had the same idea. Experience gained from these visits was invaluable to understanding national politics and their effects on local law enforcement issues. National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial Also, while in D.C., we had a chance to visit the National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial (see photos). We were awed to see so many officers from around the country. The streets were packed with more than 20,000 officers paying homage and respect to our fallen heroes.


NAPO Update
By Lt. Mark R. Hafkey, Area 1 Vice President
John McCain or Barack Obama? With the 2008 Presidential elections quickly approaching, presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama have made substantial efforts to reach out to NAPO to win their endorsement. NAPO makes its presidential endorsement during our annual convention that takes place the summer of the election year, which, this year, was NAPO’s 30th Annual Convention July 30 - August 4. Lt. Dave Adams and I attended the convention. On July 31, during NAPO’s Executive Board meeting, both candidates called in separately for a conference call with NAPO’s elected officers and area vice presidents. Executive Director Bill Johnson took the lead on the conference calls, asking both candidates questions regarding the Association’s top priorities. Topics discussed included the creation of a national Law Enforcement Officer Bill of Rights, collective bargaining, funding for state and local law enforcement grant programs, the extradition of cop-killers from Mexico, racial profiling legislation and the importance of giving NAPO a seat at the table when it comes to making decisions that affect the rank-and-file law enforcement community. Both candidates voiced their strong support and gratitude toward America’s law enforcement and promised that NAPO’s voice would be heard when it came to developing and implementing policies that concern state and local law enforcement. Their positions on NAPO’s priorities reflect the beliefs and goals of their respective party platforms, each of which focus federal support of state and local law enforcement in different ways. John McCain believes that most decisions regarding state and local law enforcement belong at the state and local level, while Barack Obama believes that the federal government has a larger role to play in regards to state and local law enforcement. Both candidates made impressive arguments to our Executive Board as to why NAPO should endorse them. In addition to the conference calls, both campaigns sent surrogates to address NAPO’s 200 assembled delegates during the last day of the convention. Former Oklahoma Governor Frank Keating spoke on behalf of the McCain campaign and Senator Joseph R. Biden, Jr. represented the Obama campaign. After Governor Keating and Senator Biden spoke, the NAPO delegates, representing NAPO’s member organizations, cast votes first on a motion for NAPO (From left to right) NAPO President Thomas J. Nee of the Boston Police Patrolmen’s Association, one of to endorse Barack the many featured instructors, and NAPO Recording Obama for President. Secretary, Michael J. Madonna of the New Jersey State This vote did not Policemen’s Benevolent Association at NAPO’s 30th get the two-thirds Annual Convention. PPSLA and hundreds of other majority necessary to police association leaders from around the country pass. After that vote reviewed NAPO’s accomplishments during the 2nd failed, the delegates session of the 110th Congress, planned association business for the 12 months ahead, and worked on cast votes on a political endorsements for the upcoming presidential motion for NAPO to endorse John election during the four day convention.

McCain for President, which also was not able to get a two-thirds majority. According to NAPO’s bylaws, due to the inability to get a twothirds majority in favor of either candidate, the vote now goes to the Executive Board. It only requires a simple majority vote of the nearly 50 person board to endorse a candidate. Historically, democratic presidents tend to support labor/employee issues more than their counterparts, yet most police employees tend to be conservative in their views. The Executive Board will meet late September to decide who NAPO will endorse for President for the 2008 elections. PPSLA will be there. Bill Introduced to Clarify Pension Protection Act of 2006 On June 26, 2008, Congressman Charles Rangle (D-NY), Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, and Congressman George Miller (D-CA), Chairman of the House Education and Labor Committee, introduced a bill that provides technical corrections to the Pension Protection Act of 2006 (PPA). This bill, H.R. 6382, makes two important clarifications to the PPA: first, it makes certain that self-insured retirees are able to take advantage of the H.E.L.P.S. Retirees benefit; and second, it ensures rates of interest utilized under State or local governmental plans are not in conflict with the new federal requirements. The H.E.L.P.S. Retirees provision allows qualified public safety retirees to use up to $3,000, federal income tax-free, annually from their retirement plan to pay health care premiums. Congress Passes NAPO-Endorsed FISA Bill On July 10, 2009, President Bush signed into law an electronic surveillance bill that will overhaul and modernize the 30-year-old Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). Over the past year, passage of this bill has been stalled due to a congressional standoff over the issue of granting retroactive legal immunity to telecommunications companies being sued for their cooperation in the federal government’s surveillance program after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Understanding the necessity of passing this FISA legislation, Democratic and Republican Congressional leadership began discussions over compromise language. Negotiations were halted numerous times because House Democrats were unwilling to accept the immunity provision as part of the bill and Senate Republicans vowed to block any bill that did not protect telecommunications companies from prosecution. In March, NAPO stepped into the fray, urging lawmakers to support the retroactive immunity provision. In June, a compromise was made: a federal district court will rule that all existing lawsuits against third parties that assisted in surveillance would be waived if there was substantial evidence they received written assurances that the program was legal and authorized by the president. NAPO supports this compromise, which was passed by Congress on June 9, and is certain that the court will dismiss the lawsuits. The National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO) is a coalition of police unions and associations from across the United States that serves to advance the interests of America’s law enforcement through legislative and legal advocacy, political action and education. Founded in 1978, NAPO now represents more than 1,000 police unions and associations, 238,000 sworn law enforcement officers, 11,000 retired officers and more than 100,000 citizens who share a common dedication to fair and effective crime control and law enforcement.

Over 250 officers took the sergeants written test on Saturday, September 13th. At least 80 will score high enough to be invited to take the oral board and assessment exams. Many of the promotional candidates indicated that they decided to take the sergeant’s test due to the recent contract negotiated by PPSLA.

Lieutenants Mark R. Hafkey and Dave Adams confer with PSB investigator Lt. Lisa Ruggiero at the scene of the officer involved shooting involving Sgt. John Ferranti. This was one of many supervisor involved critical incidents this year.

Charles Anderson (62B), Leroy Potter (N63), and Tim Hallahan (T43) pose for a picture after being the first three to complete the written exam. Each is hoping that their score will be high enough to proceed to the next stage.

Many supervisors have been involved in critical incidents this year. Sgt. John Ferranti, for example, was involved in an officer involved shooting on July 28th. PPSLA representatives were on scene to represent him throughout the investigative process and provide him legal counsel if desired. Thankfully, John was not injured during this incident and did an excellent job.

PPSLA was on hand providing refreshments to the many officers taking the sergeantís written exam. We were delighted to see that so many senior officers decided to throw their hat in the ring.

Lt. Mark R. Hafkey shaking hands with one of the prior presidents of the APA - Andy Swann. Both PPSLA and the APA endorsed retired DPS Officer Andy Swann for Arizona House - District 20 (Ahwatukee and Chandler area). We welcomed the opportunity to assist Andy in campaigning in various neighborhoods.

Jury Duty Scam
The caller claims to be a jury coordinator. If you protest that you never received a summons for jury duty, the scammer asks you for your Social Security number and date of birth so he or she can verify the information and cancel the arrest warrant. Give out any of this information and bingo; your identity was just stolen. The fraud has been reported so far in 11 states, including Oklahoma, Illinois, and Colorado. This (swindle) is particularly insidious because they use intimidation over the phone to try to bully people into giving information by pretending they are with the court system. The FBI and the federal court system have issued nationwide alerts on their web site, warning consumers about the fraud, i.e.,

IRS Ruling Regarding Retirements
By Mike Galloway
The IRS has issued a rule that states normal retirement age for public safety personnel starts at age 50. It looks like the rule will go into effect on July 1, 2009. In our retirement system there is no such age requirement. We do not know if this rule will affect the Public Safety Personal Retirement System. However, your pension system (PSPRS) has retained legal counsel on this issue. For right now we are status quo and I will update you with any changes. Feel free to contact me with questions or concerns personally at 480.325.8668. You can link to the PSPRS web site by visiting and clicking on our links page.

The Miracle MOA
By Sgt. Ronnie Snodgrass, Trustee
Well by the time you read this I will be a wet sneeze away from retirement on December 19th. I just wanted to say it was a true pleasure working with the PPSLA Negotiations Team on the 2008 - 2010 MOA. I call it the Miracle MOA. It is by far the best of the 15 agreements I have helped negotiate at PLEA and PPSLA since 1983. I have spoken to no less than 150 members in the last few months showing them how they plug into the new $99,000+ sergeants and $119,000+ lieutenants top pay in this agreement which involves four separate raises. All of them were very content with the new Top Pay. Only a few were upset because of the way merit steps are paid. The pay ordinance is clear and since I was hired in 1971 merit steps have always been paid on your PMG or merit date. Some members looked at what other less senior member’s salary was, even though they were making the same amount before the raise, and were unhappy. This leads to this profound quote from me. Curiosity destroys contentment. Be content with what you got today and will get tomorrow. Special thanks go to Lori Steward, the PPD management team and especially Kathy Gleason who really is a miracle worker. But let’s not forget how we got to the market adjustment in the first place. I hope you are sitting down because credit goes to Jake Jacobson, Mayor Phil Gordon, Frank Fairbanks and a number of other un-named behind the scene players from police and fire labor. The truth is money had been set aside for the market adjustments for over a year allowing police and fire to catch up to get these much needed increases. So thank you Mark and PPSLA for talking me into running for the board of trustees and allowing me to go out on top. Of all the great things I have been involved in during my 37+ year career this was certainly one of the many wonderful highlights.

Immigration Conference On August 25-27, 2008, the Arizona Police Association held its 3rd annual conference at the Radisson Fort McDowell Resort & Casino in Scottsdale/Fountain Hills. This yearís topic was Understanding and Addressing Immigrationís Impact on Arizona Public Safety. Approximately 20 instructors representing ICE, Border Patrol, Department of Homeland Security, DOC, U.S. Attorneyís Office, MVD, DPS, various task forces, Lt. Mark R. Hafkey thanks Chief and even researchers from academia Robert W. Gilbert of Customs & Border Protection for his spoke over the three day event to participation in the immigration about 150 representatives from nearly conference. Chief Gilbert’s 40 public safety agencies around presentation was excellent. Arizona. Topic areas included the immigration process, culture, economic impact, globalization and insurgency, identity theft, fraudulent documents, motor vehicle issues, incarceration and detention, human smuggling, homeland security, federal, state, and local resources, employer sanction laws, legal (constitutional) issues, and more. PPSLA President Mark R. Hafkey chaired the committee responsible for putting the conference together, which included representatives from the Mesa Police Association, the Maricopa County Community Colleges Police Association, and DPS. Special thanks to ICE for partnering with us on the first ever immigration conference designed for public safety personnel.

PSPRS is Revamping Investment Policy
By Mike Galloway,
It all started with horrific losses after the Y2k911 market meltdown. Our system’s investment performance was so bad that sweeping changes were authorized by the fund manager board. The objective of these changes were to restructure our investment department. Our monetary losses were far worse than most other pension funds. It is critical that we turn the ship around and protect our member pensions moving into the future. We recently hired a new world class chief investment officer named Rob Brown from the corporate sector to steer the ship. In addition, I was just recently appointed as the chairman of the investment committee and will be in direct contact with Rob on a regular basis.

City Manager Frank Fairbanks and the chief negotiators for the PPSLA and City negotiation teams signing the 2008-10 Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) on June 18, 2008. Standing behind to observe are other members from both teams. PPSLA was successful in negotiating a new pay scale designed to widen the pay gap when promoted, add additional merit steps for all sergeants and lieutenants and substantially increase their base hourly wage. This contract was, by far, the highest wage increase for Phoenix police supervisors ever seen and will place sergeants #1 and lieutenants #2 in Arizona within the contract period.


A Simple Note
By Lt. Dave Adams, D&G Chairperson
What would you do? You are a supervisor and you have a problem employee; nothing illegal and no major O.O. violations, just a thorn in your side. It has come to my attention that we have varying opinions about how we should handle this situation. Some say do nothing because PLEA will go on the attack and you will find yourself under investigation. Others say fire/demote/transfer them immediately. I have done a little research and offer some thoughts for consideration. AS SUPERVISORS, we owe our subordinates some very basic communication. While you may think your verbal skills are superior to the rest of us on planet earth it is possible that you may not be relating the message you think you so masterfully orchestrated. Generating simple written notes is one of the best methods of communication with your employees. I understand that for most of the troops this seems like tedious work, but I assure you your troops love to see that you noticed what a great job they did when I also assure you, they will heed your well thought advice and try to make changes for the better if they know you are fair. For the 2%er’s the contemporaneous notes routinely reviewed with employees will leave little defense when it is time for the employee to seek a job more suited to their abilities. Not to mention it just seems fair and reasonable to tell an employee they are not cutting the mustard and give them time to correct the behavior! AS EMPLOYEES we have a responsibility to give our best effort which includes supporting decisions made by our Department. It is our obligation to bring our expertise to the table and discuss issues with our superiors to reach a conclusion that is best for the Department (by Department I don’t mean you). Once a direction is reached it is our obligation to support the decision, barring any legal issues of course. Consider how you would like it if you give direction to one of your troops and they refuse to support you by rallying the squad? It is not any more productive when you do the same. Organizational structure mandates that there is a boss and the boss must make the final call, hopefully, after careful consideration of input from the experts (you). The beauty for you is that they also carry the responsibility of the decision. FOR ALL OF US our first concern must be the Department

and what is best for it. Our employees are the greatest asset of the Department and should be treated as such. It should be our goal to treat everyone fairly regardless of likes, dislikes and rank. I recommend that you communicate with your employees in writing at least monthly (I vaguely recall a policy!) and document problems along with solutions, frequent reviews and allow time for behavior modification to occur. Following basic fairness guidelines will probably correct the problem but in those rare occasions, the solution is much easier to deliver and accept. Lastly, ensure that you are working with your boss, not against them, for the betterment of the organization. In our hearts and in our laws, we must treat all our people with fairness and dignity. We are all on the same team. Do unto others as you would have them do unto to you. If I could walk a mile in your shoes.

Hello All!
By Lt. Pat Tortorici, Trustee
Well, we finally made it to Iraq, which is just as wonderful as I remember! The accommodations are much better this time, as I’ve graduated from sleeping on a truck to working in Al Faw Palace in Baghdad. It’s not quite as fancy as it sounds, as the term “palatial” is relative to one’s location. Still, we have it much better than some of our Soldiers, and I’m grateful for that. As you can most likely tell from my somewhat preposterous signature line, I wear a few hats over here, which is cool with me, because I like to stay busy. In addition to being the commander for the Phoenix Reserve Company we brought over here, I am the officer in charge of the Borders and External Influence Unit. Military Intelligence is a fascinating branch, and much of the “border issues” (sound familiar???) Iraq faces deal with smuggling of everything from cigarettes to foreign fighters from Syria and Iran. I have the opportunity to go “outside the wire” as they say and make site visits to the Points of Entry (POEs) on the border. Corruption is a pretty systemic institution over here, so most bad guys prefer to grease a few palms at the POEs to facing the uncertainty of crossing a wide swath of unforgiving desert. Each area of the border faces specific challenges predicated on the country on it faces. Obviously, Iran is a tremendous threat, and they keep us busy. The cooperation between the Iraqi Army (IA) and Coalition Forces (CF) has never been better, and we have the enemy on the ropes in several areas. More specifically, the vastly increased operational skill set of IA forces has been a true game changer for us. Much of the intelligence analysis my team focuses on is roughly equivalent to organized crime back home, it has given me a new found appreciation for Phoenix PD crime analysts on our professional staff. That’s about it for now, please know I miss you all and I am looking forward to returning to my family and Phoenix PD brothers and sisters. Stay safe, sometimes I think things have slowed down here enough that it’s kinda like Maryvale East.... WAY east!! Patrick T.
