On Saturday 12/14/13, between 1100-and 3pm, the Broward PBA will be the drop off point for a toy drive for Florida families of slain officers. If a law enforcement officer from another state, Canada, or the Caribbean islands was slain in the line of duty and your family now resides in Florida then this established entity will deliver a toy or gift card to the children of the officer on Christmas. This drive is being done in the name of Motorman Chris Schaub, a BSO Deputy who was killed in a traffic accident. Please stop by and donate to this worthy cause. Cheri Stekar, from the HPD Honor guard will be assisting.
Serria one CEW was offered a chiefs position in Dade County but declined and will continue to work with Scotty at BSO.
The $2,000 alteration FF/BK advised the commission would cost is now up to over $550.00 in permits alone. I have done a PRR on the City personnel who have worked on this, as well as the hours spent on the construction. After the complaint of the work being done without the proper permits, filed on 11/19/13, plans were submitted and additional permits were submitted, including an electrical permit. FF/BK is in charge of code enforcement and he is the same one who cites the public for such violations. Now he is exhibiting behavior that he would cite. We should anticipate the cost will be in excess of $2,000.
Yesterday the PBA sent a letter to CSR/KD asking for the air in the station to be tested for excessive mold. Members have complained about eye irritation as well as respiratory distress. Gail Reinfeld sent me an e-mail advising Lisa Powell would contact me on the complaint.
The Michael Nila mirrors have arrived at HPD and soon the Blue Courage initiative will be in full swing. I am sure most of you are feeling better already. BTW, great one on one contacts with the assessors for accreditation. Some quotes have to be saved for a happy hour session. LOL
Hope to see you on the 14th.
