Edmond Police Department 2013 Annual Report

2013 A nnual Report


Edmond Police Department eXECUTIVE sUMMARY

Bob A. R icks, Police Chief since 2003

Our 2013 Annual Report again reflects the high level of public service delivered by the men and women of the Edmond Police Department. In 2012 which is the last year that data is available, Edmond was ranked the 28th safest city in the United States for cities above 75,000 in population, according to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports (UCR). These are based on UCR numbers for violent crimes. Also, according to UCR Edmond was the safest city, among the top ten largest cities in Oklahoma, with regard to property crime and violent crime. For 2013 we saw a slight increase of 1.18% in violent crime, but we experienced a 5.28% decrease in property crime. These numbers should continue to support us as one of the safest cities in the country and our state. We believe that we continue to provide the most professional police services available to keep our community safe. We broke ground on our new Public Safety Center in September of 2013. We have seen much progress in construction, and it is anticipated that the Public Safety Center may be completed by July 1st of 2015. This new facility will be a boon to our ability to keep Edmond safe by upgrading our quality police services. We had a couple of very traumatic events during the past year. These were our participation in the response to the May 20th tornado in Moore, and the loss of one of our own during the year – Detective Matt Terry. These events are discussed in more detail herein, and we hope you take time to learn more about these life changing occurrences. Last year was a successful year for our city and our Department. Our men and women of the Edmond Police Department have worked tirelessly to keep Edmond a special place to live and grow, and we seek to improve continuously the level of services that we provide to the City.


2013 A nnual Report CRIME RANKINGS BASED ON 2012 FBI UCR DATA Edmond’s National Crime R ankings for Cities above 75,000:

28th for least Violent Crimes 59th for least Property Crimes 53th for least Total Part One Crimes

Edmond’s Crime R ankings in the State of Oklahoma for the 10 largest cities:

CALLS FOR SERVICE AND CONTACT WITH THE PUBLIC For 2013 we had a total of 31,151 dispatched Calls for Service, 8,400 Officer Initiated Calls, and 38,028 Traffic Stops. These total 77,579 Officer Responses, or an average of 213 calls/ contacts per day.

STRENGTH The current authorized strength of the Department is 116 sworn and 31 non-sworn personnel. We have had no increase in authorized sworn positions for seven years.

SUMMARY 2013 was another highly successful year for the City of Edmond and its Police Department. Again this is a tribute to the men and women of the EPD and the residents of this great city that give us their support. In 2013, under the direction of our City Leadership, we began the contruction of the new Public Safety Center. It is being paid for by an increase in sales taxes by half a cent. This will give us the ability to continue to provide a high level of service and meet the increased demands which the future will bring. Thanks so much to this fine community for showing such confidence and support for our Department.

Budget & Professional responsibility The primary responsibilities of this office are to provide oversight for the Police Department budget, administrative investigations and internal audits. This office works directly under the supervision of the Police Chief and also oversees Planning and Research, Crime Analysis and Uniform Crime Reporting for the Department.


The funding for the Police Department is defined by the City of Edmond Public Safety Sales Tax Ordinance of 2000. The section of that ordinance which details revenue sources for Police Department operation is cited below. “Future funding for the Police Department shall, at a minimum, be set at an amount equal to the projected revenues generated by the tax established by this Ordinance (1/8 of 1%), plus the baseline funding equal to 36.8% of the General Fund revenues. General Fund revenues are those which currently come from the following sources: taxes, licenses and permits, fines and forfeitures, charges for services, interest and miscellaneous revenues. Expenditures will not be charged against the public safety tax revenues until said 36.8% General Fund revenues have first been used or encumbered.� The Edmond Police Department budget is divided between the Special Services Division, Patrol Division, Criminal Investigations Division and the Animal Welfare Unit. This division of funds provides accurate tracking and forecasting of expenses for the various operations within the Department. The Edmond Police Department budget for FY 13/14, as adopted in June of 2013, is $20,415,903. The budget is separated into five budget categories; Personnel


Services, Materials and Supplies, Other Services and Charges, Capital Outlay and Transfers. The Personnel Services portion of the Police Department FY 13/14 budget was $14,536,056; accounting for 71.20% of the total budget. Salaries and benefits for all Department employees, both uniformed and civilian are paid from this budget category. The Materials and Supplies portion of the Police Department FY 13/14 budget is $1,607,440; accounting for 7.87% of the total budget. Fuel for Department vehicles, ammunition, uniforms, body armor, technical investigation supplies and all other necessary materials is paid from this budget category. This total includes $540,000 to fund the purchase of replacement laptop computers and an additional $50,000 to fund the startup of a digital citation program.

The Other Services and Charges portion of the Police Department FY 13/14 budget is $503,375, accounting for 2.47% of the total budget. Utilities for the five Police Department buildings is paid from this budget category as well as maintenance and repair of the buildings and equipment, consulting and professional services, contract services and other services and charges incurred during the operation of the Department.

Edmond Police Department Captain larry Campbell

Budget & Professional responsibility The Capital expenditures portion of the Police Department FY 13/14 budget is $72,750; accounting for .36% of the total budget. Capital purchases in this year’s budget included a digital fingerprint collection system, negotiator phone and an alternate light source used by technical investigators. Capital equipment is defined as those assets with a value of more than $5,000 and a life expectancy of at least two years. The Transfers portion of the Department FY 13/14 budget is $3,696,282; accounting for 18.10% of the total budget. Transfers are the allocations from other City Departments which provide services to the Police Department. The largest portion of these allocations is spent on Administrative Support and totals $2,587,245. The Police Department portion of the cost for Dispatch, Human Resources, Finance, Facility Maintenance and other City Departments is paid from this budget category. The Police Department’s Insurance Assessment is also paid out of the Transfers and this year it totaled $366,566. The other areas of Transfers cover the cost to maintain and replace the vehicle fleet. The vehicle maintenance portion of Transfers is $330,500, and the Fleet Lease Assessment paid is $411,971. Although the Police Department’s budget is $20,415,903 the Department actually has direct control of a much smaller portion of its total budget. Police Personnel Services expenses and allocations total $18,232,338 and accounts for 89.30% of the total budget. The remaining $2,183,565 or 10.70% of the total budget is used to purchase the necessary supplies and services to operate the Department and provide law enforcement services to the residents of Edmond.

Planning & R esearch The Planning and Research Section worked throughout the year researching new equipment for various units and Divisions within the Department. Keeping up with the latest technology and equipment enables Officers to perform their job assignments in the safest and most efficient manner possible. One of the largest projects for this year is the replacement of the Department’s records management system. Sara Cobb, the GIS Manager for the City of Edmond, was selected as the Project Manager, and she continues to work with Officer Bruce Leehan on this endeavor. Countless hours of work and effort have been spent on this project throughout 2013 and will continue on until the system is implemented. During 2013 the City of Edmond identified several issues with the existing computer aided dispatch system and the Fire Department’s records management system. Officer Leehan worked closely with Sarah Cobb and representatives from the Fire Department and Public Safety Communications to put 4

out a request for proposal for replacement systems which would be able to integrate with the Police Department’s Records Management system. The process was completed and New World was eventually selected as the vendor for both of these new systems for the City of Edmond. Officer Leehan, along with other applicable Department personnel, has been working with other City employees to implement these new systems. The anticipated “go live” date for all three systems: police records management, fire records management and

computer aided dispatch, is June 9, 2014. Some of the other major research projects for the Planning and Research section this year include: • • • • •

federal agencies in debit/credit card fraud cases. This is a growing area of concern not just for Edmond, but nationwide.

In 2013, Forensic Examiner/Detective Kushmaul and Technology Coordinator Brandon Pratt have been involved in approximately 53 forensic examinations of digital evidence that have often been instrumental in prosecuting ICAC related investigations. Education is a big part of being a member of the ICAC Task Force. In 2013, Detective Oak was able to conduct 15 lectures related to Internet Safety. Detective Oak was able to educate approximately 500 people. The lecture attendees included parents from various church/school groups, as well as, attending local schools. The students included 6th Graders to seniors in high school.

CID has two investigators assigned to Federal task forces involving the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) and the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force. Detective Mark Oak fills a part-time task force role in the FBI’s Innocent Images Task Force that investigates online child pornography. Detective Jason Kushmal is assigned to the AT&T Computer Forensic Task Force at the University of Central Oklahoma. This Task Force is sponsored by UCO and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation. They supply the training and equipment for computer forensic investigations at no cost to the Department. Detective Kushmal examines computers, cell phones and other forms of digital media that serve as evidence. He has conducted examinations for Homicide, Child Abuse, and Financial Fraud cases for our Department as well as other departments within Oklahoma.

Patrol Division

The Patrol Division is the largest, most visible Division in the Police Department. Our primary responsibilities are to patrol the city limits of Edmond, respond to calls for service, assist the residents throughout the City, and to detect and deter criminal behavior within its 87.5 square miles. We are committed to making our community a safe place to work and live.

The Patrol Division ended the year with 75 Officers assigned to the Division: 1 Captain, 2 Lieutenants, 9 Sergeants and 63 Patrol Officers. The Patrol Division is divided into three Patrol Shifts: Day Shift (6:45 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.), Evening Shift (2:45 p.m. to 1:00 a.m.), and Night Shift (8:45 p.m. to 7:00 a.m.). At the beginning of this year we changed Evening and Night Shifts from an 8 hour shift to a 10 hour shift. This created an overlap of those two shifts from 9:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m., allowing for better coverage during peak times of calls for police service. Also within the Patrol Division are the Traffic and Motors Unit, the Arcadia Lake Patrol and the School Resource Officers. The Lake Patrol Officers patrol Arcadia Lake during the summer months and fill the School Resource Officer positions for the Public Schools during the school year. Five officers are expected to graduate our Academy in the summer of 2014. These additional officers will help the Patrol Division reach its authorized manpower level of 85, and will assist us with continuing to provide the police service our community expects and deserves. Note: Currently, 1 Sergeant and 3 Patrol Officers are on Military Deployment. 9

A live at 25 Alive at 25 is a survival course developed by the National Safety Council and is designed to prevent the number one killer for people in the 16-24 age group - automobile accidents. The Edmond Police Department Traffic Division, in partnership with the Oklahoma Safety Council and the Edmond Municipal Court, teaches the “Alive At 25� driver education program. The course is delivered in a four hour program, focusing on the behaviors and decision making that young drivers and passengers display behind the wheel. Instructors hold candid conversations with students about what can happen if they practice risky behavior, or make other poor decisions in an automobile. Some of the areas of discussion include impaired driving, underage drinking, speeding, peer pressure, driver distractions, fatigue and the fear of being caught. Students are instructed on decision making, taking control and personal responsibility. These behaviors and implications are explored indepth through a combination of discussions and interactive teaching tools. The course is a court-ordered directive to drivers in this category who have violated City of Edmond traffic ordinances.

The program has continued to grow each year and serves as a model for other law enforcement agencies statewide.

School R esource Officer (SRO) School Resource Officers provide a safe learning environment in our schools, provide valuable resources to school staff, foster a positive relationship with students, and develop strategies to resolve issues affecting our youth. The SRO position encompasses three major components: law enforcement, education and counseling. The School Resource Officer program is highly sought after by the Edmond Public School Administration and Staff. Having a police presence in the schools provides a feeling of security for students, staff and parents. The schools have come to rely on the SROs as an integral part of their school staff and call on their expertise on a regular basis.


We ended the year with four full time SROs. Each of the three high schools and the Boulevard Academy had a SRO assigned to it. In addition, Day Shift Patrol Officers and K-9 handlers made regular visits to our schools to help provide a significant police presence.

Edmond Police Department CaptaiN Bob Pratt

Special Services Division The primary responsibilities of this office are to provide oversight for the Police Department Training Unit, Jail/Records Unit, Property/Evidence Management, Animal Services and Building Facilities Management. This office operates directly under the supervision of the Special Services Deputy Chief of Police.

The Edmond Police Department (EPD) Training Unit is dedicated to cultivating and maintaining the highest quality training the residents of Edmond have come to expect of its Police Officers. As a result, upgrades in training practices, equipment and facilities have been and will continue to be an on-going effort of this Unit. 2013 began with the continuation and instruction of the Edmond Police Department Academy Class 12-03. This class represents the third EPD in-house academy. By graduation, Academy Recruits will have received (760) hours of training prior to being assigned to field training. The year has witnessed many improvements to the Training Facility Complex. A new target-turning system was installed on the Rifle Range. To promote additional range safety and security, earthen berms surrounding the Live Fire House and Rifle Range have been enhanced and extended. In addition, new fencing has been installed around the northern border of the facility. With completion of the design phase, construction began on the expansion of the Training Center Classroom Complex. This expansion will add additional classroom and office space as well as provide expansion to the weapons storage and maintenance areas. With a budgeted construction amount of $200,000, the Edmond Police Department Training Center and Ranges will become one of the premier Police Training Facilities in the region. In an effort to maintain the exceptional quality of equipment issued to Edmond Officers, new weapons were purchased for various purposes and deployments. In 2014, each officer 20

will receive a new Glock 21 fourth-generation handgun to replace the existing fleet of aging weapons. This purchase will allow the entire agency to utilize weapons that are of like caliber. In addition, the purchase will streamline future weapons training and purchasing of ammunition and supplies. Also purchased were new Colt rifles for replacement of weapons that have reached the end of life expectancy projections. With the trade-in of older weaponry, this purchase was accomplished in a cost-effective way. In 2013, the Edmond Police Department Training Unit delivered more than 4,000 hours of in-service training to Edmond Officers, Jail Staff and Animal Services Officers as well as other law enforcement agencies. The Edmond Police Department Training Unit remains committed to ensuring that Edmond Police Department continues to be the most highly-trained agency it can possibly be.

ability to house up to 4 times the inmates currently held today, making Edmond a safer community and preserving the quality of life for all Edmond residents. During the booking process, jail staff are responsible for inventorying all prisoners’ personal property and securing it until release. A thorough medical screening is conducted and documented to allow jailers to provide appropriate medical attention, if required. Fingerprints and mug shots are recorded on every person who is brought to the Edmond Jail. Once booking has been completed, inmates are allowed two completed phone calls to attempt to post bond prior to being placed into a cell. Upon being hired as jail staff, recruit jailers are trained in a number of different areas such as baton, O.C. (oleoresin capsicum) and taser certification. Defensive tactics are a critical part of the training program in which all jail staff must become proficient during the probationary period. In order to remain at a proficient level, jailers attend on-going training throughout the year.

The jail is in the process of receiving a Live Scan Fingerprinting System which will allow jail staff to digitally scan fingerprints and submit the prints directly to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation for identification. The Live Scan system will also allow staff to At full staffing levels, the jail consists of identify possible wanted persons by checking nine full-time jailer personnel and 1 full-time fingerprints through the FBI and Oklahoma records clerk.

Property & Evidence Control In an effort to maintain an efficient and first class property and evidence management unit, staff members continue to strive and discover new and innovative ways to store and catalog property and evidence. The primary function of the unit is to establish and maintain a chain of custody for all evidence which will ensure the integrity necessary for successful prosecutions as well as returning lost property to its owners. The accountability of this unit is critical to proper and efficient case management. To date, the primary effort of property staff has been directed toward purging expired property items and conservation of space due to the limitations of the current evidence storage facility.

Special Services Division A nimal Services The Edmond Police Department Animal Services Unit is comprised of two components, Field Services and the Animal Shelter. The unit is staffed by a Supervisor, four Animal Service Officers, three Shelter Specialists and an Administrative Specialist. With the focus upon public safety, the unit’s primary goal is to promote a safe environment for Edmond residents and their interaction with domestic animals and wildlife. Animal Service Officers (ASO’s) are responsible for enforcing animal-related city ordinances and state statutes. They also routinely patrol the city in a proactive effort to address animal issues they may encounter. In regard to domestic animals and wildlife, ASO’s responded to 2,662 calls for service in 2013. The majority of these calls were related to stray animals, particularly dogs. Dealing with wildlife ranked second in total call volume for officers. The removal of deceased animals from roadways, the investigation of animal bites and responding to animal noise disturbances rounded out the top five categories of calls for service. In 2013, Animal Services received 89 reports of neglect and cruelty. Fortunately, most reports were unfounded. However, enforcement action was initiated on cruelty reports which were deemed legitimate. The operation and management of the Animal Shelter Complex which is located at 2424 Old Timbers Drive, is an important responsibility for staff members. Animals that are located running at large by ASO’s, strays found by residents and pets relinquished by owners comprise the population of animals housed in the facility. In terms of animal 23

housing enclosures, limitation of shelter capacity continues to be a challenge for staff. In 2013, 1,730 animals were booked into the shelter. Once an animal has become the property of the City of Edmond, it is medically and behaviorally assessed for adoptability. If an animal’s behavior and health are good, the animal is processed for adoption and receives vaccinations and if necessary, sterilization surgery. In this regard, animals deemed adoptable are held indefinitely, fostered or are sent to rescue. Staff members are continually seeking qualified homes to foster animals which benefit the animal being removed from the

shelter environment while convalescing from a minor illness, surgery or injury. At times, the shelter will house litters of nursing puppies and kittens whom, by being sent to foster care, may avoid exposure to diseases that could be present in the shelter environment. Foster families are often provided food for the animals while in their care. Outside of time and compassion, there is generally no cost incurred by someone willing to foster a shelter animal. While remaining in an animal shelter for a long period of time is not an ideal situation for a dog or cat, it is believed that euthanizing adoptable animals due to space or length of stay is not necessarily acceptable. Therefore, creative ways will continue to be explored to deal with a consistently overcrowed shelter. However, contrary to popular belief, the shelter is not a ‘no-kill facility’ and at times animals do have to be euthanized. The Animal Services Unit invests a great deal of effort to keep the euthanasia numbers to a minimum, and the numbers for 2013 reflect this. During the calendar year, only

198 animals were euthanized due to health or behavior/aggression reasons. The majority of animals handled by Animal Services staff are domestic dogs and cats. Common wildlife such as raccoons, skunks, opossums, rabbits, ferrets and deer are also commonly seen. In addition, the staff has encountered injured bats, hawks and Mississippi Kites. Probably the most unusual temporary shelter resident was a stray African Serval. This was likely someone’s exotic pet that was never reported missing. This beautiful, but clearly wild cat was roaming a creek line for several days before staff could bring her to the shelter. She was malnourished, anemic and had an old significant break to one of her legs. After a brief stay at the shelter, the cat was transferred to a sanctuary in Texas where she will be properly cared for and remain the rest of her life. Volunteers have been instrumental in maintaining the quality of life for animals 24

Walking and working with dogs and cats, assisting with the cleanliness of the facility and actively participating in adoption events are examples of the important and very much appreciated role performed on a daily basis by shelter volunteers. In addition, Paws For Life, Inc. has monetarily assisted the shelter by underwriting costs related to medical procedures that have exceeded shelter budget capabilities. In 2013, this assistance included several surgeries to dogs and cats, heartworm treatments and laser treatment for a dog that sustained injury consistent with being dragged by a vehicle. Edmond Animal Services will continually seek dedicated volunteers to assist staff members at the shelter.

As a result, he initiated a campaign to solicit donations for fifty beds for dogs housed in area animal shelters. On December 20th, the young boy delivered dozens of beds, dog toys and $800 cash to the Edmond Shelter with the request that every dog adopted go home with a new bed “knowing that they would be loved.� While supplies lasted, whenever a shelter dog was adopted, a bed was sent home with an explanation of the selfless act of one little boy.

2013 A nnual Report In Memory Of

In October of 2013, the Edmond Police Department lost one of our beloved members of our Department. Detective Matt Terry passed away unexpectedly of natural causes on October 2, 2013 while at home. Matt was just 41 years old. He was a 19 year veteran of our police force. Matt’s distinguished career started as a Patrol Officer and ended as a Detective. He was awarded the Medal of Valor in April 2002 for bravely rushing into a burning home to rescue the homeowner, and was named the EPD Officer of the Year in 2007 after working to identify and solve the murder of an unidentified victim. More importantly, Matt earned our undying friendship, respect, loyalty and devotion of his brothers and sisters in arms and returned it to them freely. Matt was always the life of the party and the happiest guy in every room. His gift for a well-timed joke and love of a good laugh will never be forgotten. He was the kind of person everyone loved to be around, especially when his Sooners were winning.


Edmond Police Department In Memory Of Wreath Making The death of our Detective Matt Terry was one of the most difficult times for our police family. Police work is a bonding experience. After years of working with each other side by side you develop a bond that is so deep it’s hard to explain. It’s a brotherhood. That strength and bond carries over

into the wives and other family members. After detective Terry’s passing the wives of the police department met and assembled wreaths to hang on each family members door, hang in the lobby of the police department and a wreath for each member of the Terry family.


A few weeks after his death, members of the Edmond Police Department, Fire Department and multiple law enforcement agencies and businesses joined together for a benefit softball tournament in honor of Matt Terry and his family. The tournament and auction raised more than $20,000 for Matt’s wife Kathy and daughter Heather. 28

2013 A nnual Report Special Events May Tornado: May 19th and 20th of last year proved trying as we were faced with tornadoes in our city and the following day in Moore. Our officers responded to the tornado that came through our city the afternoon of May 19th. Luckily we had no physical injuries and less than a dozen homes damaged. The next afternoon in Moore we watched as a massive tornado once again swept through the metro. We immediately dispatched teams of Edmond Police personnel to help with perimeter control, looting and some search and rescue. It once again was an event that deeply impacted our first responders. In all we had 30 men and women from our Department respond on this multi-day event.

Benchmark Cities Conference: In May the Edmond Police Department along with the Norman and Broken Arrow Police Department’s proudly hosted the 2013 Benchmark Cities Summit. Sixty police chiefs and administrators from 26 cities and 14 states attended the three day event. The Benchmark Cities was originally developed in 1996 by the Police Chief in Overland Park, Kansas with a group of 13. The agencies share comparable demographics, crime rates, etc. The group meets annually to discuss successes and failures, department structure, what initiatives work and what does not. May of 2013 was our turn to host the roundtable. We entertained the chiefs and their support personnel with dinner in Bricktown, a backyard BBQ and capped off the conference with dinner at the Oklahoma City Memorial Museum and a personal tour of the grounds and Museum. 29
