1 Annual Report 2013

2 No TMPA Without You No TMPA Without You On behalf of the TMPA board of directors and staff, I would like to sincerely thank you for your membership and support. Without you, we would not have such a strong and powerful association. As you look through the pages of this annual report, you will see some of our accomplishments of the past year. Out of all the good things we have been able to do, the one thing that I continue to be most proud of is the fact that we take care of our members like no one else. Member service continues to be top priority with the board and staff and that philosophy is nothing new. We did not just decide one day that we were going to start taking care of our members; that is something we have been doing for a very long time, it has been ingrained into every decision we make. You are the reason for our success and your trust in us is greatly appreciated. Your President Over the past year, we have grown our membership to over 20,000 members, solidifying the fact that we are the largest law enforcement association in Texas. TMPA assets have continued to grow while our liabilities have shrunk. We also created the Texas Law Enforcement Council, which is a partnership with the Dallas Police Association and Houston Police Officer s Union to identify and work towards accomplishing common goals. Our influence with the Legislature is growing every day and requests for our endorsement in political races has reached levels that I have not seen in my tenure on the board. Our training division and special programs such as SAFVIC, LEADRS and SFST continue to train thousands of officers every year, increasing the professionalism of law enforcement and making our communities safer. Please remember that TMPA is here for you anytime you have a need. Our goal is for you to feel completely confident that we are covering your back so that you can go out and serve your communities with confidence. As the pressures of your job continue to grow, TMPA is committed to doing everything we can to assist you and your families. Thank you again for your support of this great organization and I am honored to serve as your President. Stay safe and may God bless you, Josh Thurlkill, President

3 Saddle Up Saddle Up Above my desk, proudly displayed is a recent gift from my oldest sister a photo of John Wayne, framed in fence-board and barbed wire, with the caption: Courage is being scared to death and saddling up anyway. That has long been my favorite quote from The Duke, because it embodies the very essence of law enforcement. We have to do the things that others can t or won t do for themselves. We have to see things that most don t even want to admit exist. And we have to do all this while enduring unending criticism from the very people we are protecting because they often don t like the way we do it. But we keep saddling up. The Executive We do this for what is typically below-average pay often below poverty level little job security, and even less appreciation. We work odd, long hours and have to miss many important family events because of the job. We have to be careful not to arrest the wrong people for fear of repercussions. We have to keep count of how many people of each racial group that we stop, cite or arrest for fear of being accused of racism or discrimination. But we keep saddling up. Of late we have been used as pawns in the national debate over public sector pensions. We have seen significant changes to many of our retirement plans. The legislature made changes to TRS and ERS; TMRS changed its mortality tables thereby reducing retirement benefits for those who retire after this year. All this despite the fact that the average public-sector retiree in Texas receives a benefit of less than $2,000 per month and 70% don t participate in Social Security. But we are still accused of having rich retirements. There is a push to eliminate all defined-benefit pensions for public employees and replace them with 401k type plans. This push is typically championed by people whose interests are not in what is good public policy, but rather in how much financial profit they can reap in the process. But we saddle up anyway. Add to this the efforts of many of our administrators and elected officials to either eliminate or subvert the few job protections we do have, the push by some groups to force us into violent confrontations over issues like guncontrol, immigration and race relations, and at some point we have to start asking ourselves why we continue to do this job. But we keep saddling up anyway. It is truly amazing that so many dedicated, men and women continue to choose law enforcement as a career. Certainly it can only be from their own internal desires to do the right thing, give back to their communities and make the world a little better place. No other motivations make sense. And those dedicated individuals are the reason that TMPA exists and continues to flourish. As long as you keep saddling up, we will too. Take care. Kevin Lawrence, Executive

In FY 2013, TMPA funded 11 new law suits. These included suits for breach of bargaining contract, to compel a civil service appeal hearing on a termination, for violation of the written complaint requirement in LGC 614 and for violating LGC 143 by terminating an officer based on an alleged non-disciplinary termination (the chief terminated the officer because the local prosecutor wouldn t sponsor the officer as a witness). TMPA also provided the sole defense to officers in civil lawsuits against them where their employer refused to comply with their statutory duty to defend. THE VOICE OF TEXAS LAW ENFORCEMENT TMPA ANNUAL REPORT

8 Political Lobbying TMPA PAC The Voice of Law Enforcement at the Capitol 800 bills monitored For more than 60 years TMPA has represented the interests of law enforcement officers at state, local and national levels. Through the Political Action Committee (PAC) fund, TMPA contributes to the campaigns of those champions who support law enforcement by helping us pass legislation supporting better pay and working conditions while ensuring strong criminal justice. We are not aligned with any particular party; we support legislators if they support Texas law enforcement. In the 83 rd Legislative Session and subsequent Special Sessions, TMPA monitored almost 800 bills, including over 60 pension bills. At times we sat in a hearing through the night or were called upon to testify. Every day we were working hard to protect you and your ability to do your job. Did you know? Without the PAC, TMPA would not be able to lobby in support of or opposition to issues that are important to law enforcement officers, such as pensions, and we wouldn t be able to help candidates who support law enforcement get into office. The last few years have been an all-out attack on law enforcement officers. We are certain these attacks will continue in the 84 th Session in January 2015 including continued assaults on your earned pensions. Your TMPA PAC contributes to the campaigns of those who support our efforts and agree to protect your pensions. As a result, during the last session we were able to stop all the bills that would have cut, limited or changed your pensions. TMPA dues money cannot be used to fund the PAC; therefore, your PAC contributions are the only funds we have to support our friends in the Texas legislature. The voice of Texas peace officers is crucial to the legislative process and our continued success depends on your contributions. Visit to donate today or call (800) to set up recurring monthly donations. 8 TMPA ANNUAL REPORT 2013 THE VOICE OF TEXAS LAW ENFORCEMENT

9 Your PAC donations work hard at the Capitol, here are just a few examples of the enormous impact we have in the legislature. Some of the bills TMPA supported that passed include: HB 8: Increasing protections for victims of trafficking of persons and increasing our ability to prosecute and punish offenses related to trafficking of persons. HB 434: This bill makes it easier for officers to obtain a blood specimen from a vehicle operator to test for alcohol concentration or other substances by allowing more types of certified technicians to complete the procedure. HB 625: This bill increased the penalty for operating a vehicle without a license plate to make it easier for police officers to identify vehicles. HB 965: This bill protects an officer s employment record if terminated by removing allegations of misconduct if it is not supported by a preponderance of the evidence. HB 1009: This was a TMPA bill after changes were made to make the bill stronger and safer. This bill creates an optional new category of law enforcement officer, the school marshal, and establishes training to introduce effective law enforcement strategies and techniques and includes strategies for preventing school shootings and for securing the safety of victims. HB 1016: TMPA fought hard for this bill because of how important it is for law enforcement. There have been school districts and other entities that are considered school districts, such as community colleges, which have refused to defend their peace officers when they have been sued for actions taken in the line of duty. According to TMPA General Counsel, Randy Doubrava, this amendment makes it clear that if these entities want to have their own police force, then they must defend their officers from lawsuits based on actions they took as part of their duty. The TMPA PAC also works hard in opposition to bills that purposefully or inadvertently affect law enforcement negatively. These bills include: HB 1608: This bill tried to limit officer s ability to obtain location information from cell phones and other wireless communication devices. This bill had to be fought on numerous platforms as amendments as well as other identical companion bills. HB 526 & SB 13: Would have changed the rules and processes regarding whether or not member information in retirement systems is subject to open records. HB 1557 & HB 3356: Were both very ill-advised bills that would have, among other unintended consequences, adversely affected pension benefits for certain law enforcement officers..

11 Dedicated Member Support 172,270 miles traveled serving you TMPA s growth is due in large part to the dedication of our field services team. Our field representative numbers have grown thanks to our membership growth. Each one of them travels on a daily basis to serve our members at the local level. This year we ve traveled over 172,270 miles to bring TMPA directly to you. In only 11 months, membership in the Lubbock Police Department grew from 13 to This year we were excited to welcome the Denton County Sheriff s Department who changed their affiliation in favor of TMPA. We ve targeted the Panhandle and East Texas due to the large potential for growth in those areas and our efforts have paid off. Agency Support TMPA provides the help needed for our members to be successful at the bargaining table. This year we assisted with nine contracts. Many are still ongoing, but others have ended Baytown PD, Bridge City PD, Galveston PD and Groves PD obtain pay increases along with enhancement of other benefits successfully for our members. We helped Baytown PD, Bridge City PD, Galveston PD and Groves PD obtain pay increases along with enhancement of other benefits. In addition to contract bargaining, TMPA can help your agency complete management and salary surveys to fix issues such as low morale, high turnover or difficulty recruiting. This year, we worked on 25 salary surveys and one successful management survey at Pearland PD. Pearland has made changes since the survey was delivered and morale has improved. Memorial Truck The TMPA Memorial Truck made its debut at the 2013 Annual Conference in Austin. The truck is a moving memorial to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. We were proud to bring the truck to 15 events this year; we hope the presence of this memorial showed the families of those officers whose funerals we attended that they will never be forgotten. In addition to honoring the fallen, the Memorial Truck was also present at the Lakeway Public Safety event and the City of Lubbock 9/11 dedication of their First Responders Memorial, among many other events. Serving Members Our Emergency Response Team is there when disaster strikes. Whether natural disasters or a fertilizer plant explosion, our ERT will set up to provide first responders working to protect your communities with anything you need. This year, the ERT responded to the North Texas tornadoes, West fertilizer plant explosion and the Eagle Pass/Rio Grande River flooding. TMPA is also there to help make your local events successful. We attended over 50 law enforcement benevolent events this year, including golf tournaments, BBQ fundraisers, motorcycle competitions and more. We also spread the word about TMPA at 10 conferences, such as the TCOLE and ETPOA Conferences. THE VOICE OF TEXAS LAW ENFORCEMENT TMPA ANNUAL REPORT

12 Affordable, Statewide Training Brought Directly to You 24,448 4,239 officers trained training hours reported 159 classes taught TMPA is a certified Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) independent training provider. As one of the largest independent training providers in the state, we bring training directly to your agency at a very low cost. TMPA is committed to providing affordable training because we are dedicated to the philosophy that a well-trained officer will not only better serve the public, but will also enjoy a safer career in law enforcement. 12 TMPA ANNUAL REPORT 2013 THE VOICE OF LAW ENFORCEMENT

13 In line with this philosophy, TMPA also offers the state of the art PRISM Mobile Interactive Firearms Simulator for training. The simulator allows students to consider and use the proper force option as the scenario unfolds in real time. The system changes the outcome of the scenario depending on the officer s reaction, making it a realistic training tool. This year the simulator was used for training eight times. In addition to offering many TCOLE required courses, TMPA is constantly adding classes to provide new information to officers. In FY 2013, TMPA offered new Officer Safety and Survival and Officer Rights courses. Both courses were well received and we plan to continue offering them. Total Class Registrants 41.34% increase in registrants from }2012 to % increase in hrs. reported from 2012 to THE VOICE OF TEXAS LAW ENFORCEMENT TMPA ANNUAL REPORT

14 FREE TMPA Training Programs In addition to the wide variety of TMPA classes available, TMPA sponsors other training programs that provide free training to officers.

Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Training (ADAPT) 206 officers trained ADAPT Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Training The ADAPT program is funded through a grant received from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). ADAPT s mission is to prevent substance abuse on school grounds through increased training of school based law enforcement. These officers have a unique ability to prevent underage impaired driving through their interactions with students. In 2012, the ADAPT program began offering 8 hour classes for College and University Officers. One officer who attended a class in 2013 stated, This was one of the best classes that I have attended in my 24.5 years of policing.

15 Advanced Child Abuse Investigation 9,392 TCOLE hours reported The Advanced Child Abuse Investigation Training Program is designed to improve law enforcement s response to child abuse and neglect, particularly child sexual abuse, exploitation, fatality cases, and cases involving vulnerable populations.

During 2013, the program launched its stand-alone 1-day/8-hour Modules. The stand-alone modules are taught over 3 non-consecutive days in the hopes that it will be easier for officers in smaller agencies to find shift coverage to attend 1 day for each module rather than 3 days in a row, as is required when attending the 24-hour training. One set of modules was held in 2013, 52 officers and three nonlaw enforcement students successfully completed the modular training for a total of 416 hours. The program also developed two Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) Interactive Exercises which were premiered at the 2013 Crimes Against Children s Conference in Dallas.

LEADRS allows peace officers to enter arrest information online and print case reports and District Attorney-approved pre-filled forms associated with DUI/DWI cases. Initially, LEADRS aimed to reduce DUI/DWI arrest reporting time by 30% but has since been found to reduce reporting time by up to 50%. Since the program s inception, the number of officers utilizing LEADRS has greatly increased. During FY 2013 (October 1, 2012 September 30, 2013), 760 officers were trained and more than 3,000 training hours were reported to TCOLE.
