Norma Lee (Chairperson CPAAA) and I have had several discussions over the past
six months regarding the future direction of CPAAA.
Last month we sat down
with Chief Wick and discussed the upcoming budget cuts and his vision of
de-centralization the Arvada Police Department. We all agreed that CPAAA
members are a valued and potential resource to help with these challenges and
haven't been utilized in the past as they could have been.
We have decided to
form a task force of CPAAA members to meet with Chief Wick and his command staff
on a monthly basis and explore the needs & vision of the APD and match them
to the interests of CPAAA members.
This is for current and future
planning. We're looking at one Wednesday every month (all his command
staff meets on that day) with a time to be determined possibly 7:30
