EDMOND POLICE DEPARTMENT EXECUTIVE SUMMARY edmondpd.com/annualreport

BOB A. RICKS, POLICE CHIEF SINCE 2003

It is with great pride that we present our 2014 Annual Report. As the new Public Safety Center takes shape, the men and women of the Edmond Police Department are most thankful for the support they have received from the residents of Edmond and its city leaders. Overall most trends remain positive for the city. Edmond in 2013 was ranked the 34th safest city in the United States for cities above 75,000 in population by the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report (UCR). This is based on UCR’s numbers for violent crime in the United States. Again, Edmond was found to be the safest city in Oklahoma among the top ten largest cities for property and violent crime. In 2014 we saw an 8.49% decrease in violent crime for Edmond; therefore, we expect that we will obtain significant improvement in our rankings for safest cities next year. Our property crime rates fell 4.73% in 2014 which is also a very positive trend for the residents of Edmond. As mentioned above, the Public Safety Center is moving toward completion, and we expect to take occupancy this fall. It will be a beautiful building that will change the downtown landscape for years to come. One troubling issue that we are facing is the decline in Officers in the Patrol Division. We had a high of 84 officers in 2009, and at the close of 2014, we were down to 75 officers. It is our intent to have an Academy in 2015 comprised of 15 people to make up for this shortfall. Lastly, our personnel have observed the negative portrayals of law enforcement across the country. We have increased our efforts to strengthen the many partnerships that we have with our community, and we feel very fortunate to serve in a city where our efforts are being reciprocated. We hope you enjoy reading our Annual Report which captures some of the great efforts of your men and women of the Edmond Police Department.

SUMMARY 2014 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 2014, under the direction of our City Leadership, we continued the construction 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

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 14/15, as adopted in June of 2014, is $22,150,835. The budget is separated into five budget categories; Personnel Services, Materials and Supplies, Other Services and Charges, Capital Outlay and Transfers.

CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS DIVISION The Criminal Investigations Division is responsible for the follow-up investigation of criminal incidents that are reported to the Edmond Police Department. These investigations cover a wide range of crimes from simple property crimes to homicides, rapes, and other major crimes.

Investigators are trained on how to conduct interviews and interrogations, as well as, receive advanced training in the investigations of white-collar crime, cyber crime, sex crimes, crimes against children, auto theft, arson, and narcotics. CID also includes Technical Investigators, responsible for forensic crime scene investigation. Rockie Yardley and Melissa Taft perform full time TI duties and operate our digital imaging resources. The TI’s are supported by a trained cadre of patrol officers who also assist with TI duties. CID Supervisors reviewed more than 6,500 incident reports in 2014. More than 1,800 of those incidents reported to the Police Department were assigned to Detectives for further investigation. CID achieved a clearance rate of more than 36% for all assigned investigations. Each Detective carried an average caseload of 225 investigations in 2014. Our AFIX fingerprint ID system is now fully in operation. There are prints

from currently 12,023 known individuals and 502 unknown prints from crime scenes stored in our system. Having this database helps with solving multiple crimes that have the same suspect. In fact, a “hit” on a fingerprint helped to identify a suspect that committed 9 residential burglaries. In another case a print “hit” identified a suspect that broke into a vending machine. The suspect was surprised when later questioned about the burglary and confessed. 2014 was another successful year for investigations into crimes against children and cybercrimes. CID continued ICAC (Internet Crimes Against Children) investigations jointly with other agencies, to track and apprehend online predators. Cyberfraud and white-collar investigations continued in some cases with federal agencies into debt/credit card fraud, counterfeit checks, and internet scams. CID has two investigators assigned to federal task forces involving the Drug 6

Students are selected to participate and receive background and training in the practical application of forensic science and crime scene investigation. The students are trained by the Technical Investigators of the Edmond Police Department.

Narcotics officers conducted 163 narcotics investigations, resulting in 25 search warrants, and 96 arrests/charges filed. CID’s narcotics unit also seized marijuana, cocaine, meth, prescription meds, heroin, Molly and LSD. Over 30,000 dollars in cash was seized and over 15 firearms. DEA Task force investigations led to several arrests and the seizure of vehicles and cash of which EPD will gain a share of the proceeds.

2014 saw a change in personnel for CID. Mike Chesley and Tommy Evans were promoted to Sergeant. Sergeant Damon Minter was promoted to Lieutenant. All were given new assignments in the Patrol Division. CID Administrative Specialist Sharon Arnold retired after 20 plus years of service. Looking forward we hope to fill these vacancies and CID continuously promotes working with, transition our full time TI’s to civilian personnel. and supporting the Patrol Division and As a division we look forward with great promoting an atmosphere of synergy with anticipation to moving into our new home at the Edmond Police Department. the Public Safety Center.

ALIVE 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 in-depth 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 consists of 2 phases; the first phase focuses on educating the motoring public about safely sharing the roadway with motorcyclists, and the second phase concentrates on teaching motorcyclists proper skills and operating techniques. The program has continued to grow each year and serves as a model for other law enforcement agencies statewide.

SCHOOL RESOURCE 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.

Boulevard Academy had a SRO assigned to it. In addition, a SRO was assigned to work at the middle schools. We also had Day Shift Patrol Officers and K-9 handlers make regular visits to our schools to help provide a significant police presence.

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 SRO’s as an integral part of their school staff and call on their expertise on a regular basis. We ended the year with five full time SRO’s.

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.

TRAINING UNIT:

The Edmond Police Department 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. 2014 began with the start of our fourth in-house basic academy. Upon graduation from more than 800 hours of training, these new officers went on to 14 weeks of field training. In February our new addition and renovations to our training center were completed. This project more than doubled our classroom capacity and added much needed office and weapons maintenance areas. Our new training center increases the Training Unit’s efficiency and ability to serve those within our agency, and others whom we assist. The Edmond Police Department’s Training Center is truly one of the best in the region. In 2014, the Training Unit not only took in an inventoried more than 130 new Glock 21 pistols, but also implemented a system for the issuance and qualification with those new pistols that reduced overall timelines and overtime. This new weapon issue has ensured consistency throughout our fleet of weapons and each officer’s training. Fall of 2014 began the recruitment and hiring phases for our fifth in-house academy which is scheduled to begin in June of 2015. Throughout 2014, we administered more than 4,000 hours of in-service training in the core areas of Driver Training, Firearms, Rifle and other specialized units. 18


2014 ANNUAL REPORT CAPTAIN BOB PRATT

SPECIAL SERVICES DIVISION 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 crucial to proper and efficient case management.

In 2014, 8,309 property items were booked into the Edmond Police Department Property Room. Property items include firearms, cash and narcotics as well as a vast array of evidentiary and recovered lost and stolen items.

In order to provide a detailed and accurate account of all stored property and evidence items, staff members are in the process of inventorying the entire room. This effort is in preparation for relocation of the property unit to the new police facility which is currently under construction. The new facility will be To date, the primary effort of property staff equipped with proper storage rack systems as has been directed toward purging expired well as a greatly enhanced storage capacity. property items and conservation of space The ultimate goal for the staff of the Edmond due to the limitations of the current evidence Police Department Property and Evidence storage facility. During this process the Unit is to develop and maintain a unit that all two member staff has developed efficient law enforcement agencies will emulate. methods of cataloging and storing evidence for improved case management as well as better utilization of storage space.

JAIL / RECORDS ADMINISTRATION The primary function of the Jailer/Records Unit is to provide exceptional customer service in a timely manner by demonstrating and upholding the Edmond Police Department’s core value of “Trustworthy Service.” At full staffing levels, the jail consists of nine full-time jailer personnel and one full-time records clerk. In 2014, 2,228 persons were booked into the Edmond Jail by jail staff. The current six cell lockup facility provides the ability to house up to seven prisoners at any given time. With the construction of the new Public Safety Center, jail staff will have the ability to house up to four times the inmates currently held today, making Edmond a safer 19

community and preserving the quality of life for all Edmond residents. During the booking process, the highly trained jail staff is 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, a person is allowed two completed phone calls to attempt to post bond before eventually being placed into a cell.


EDMOND POLICE DEPARTMENT CAPTAIN BOB PRATT

SPECIAL SERVICES DIVISION 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 is 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. In 2014 the jail received a Live Scan Fingerprinting System which will allow jail staff to digitally scan fingerprints and submit them directly to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation for identification and records. The Live Scan system will also allow jailers to identify possible wanted persons by checking their fingerprints through the FBI and Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation databases. The implementation of the new records management system will provide a more detailed booking report and allow jailers to be more specific in reference to an inmate’s descriptors (tattoo’s, marks, and scars). In an effort to maintain an efficient and first-class jail and records management unit, jail and records staff will continue to seek innovative methods to provide, courteous and trustworthy service to the residents of Edmond.

ANIMAL WELFARE The Edmond Police Department’s Animal Services Unit is comprised of two main facets – field services and the animal shelter. The Unit is staffed by a Supervisor, four Animal Services Officers, three Animal Shelter Specialists and an Administrative Specialist. With a primary focus on public safety, the Unit’s main goals are to help provide a safe community for both humans and animals in their relationships with each other. Responsible for enforcing animalrelated city ordinances and state statutes, the Animal Services Officers respond to a multitude of calls each year dealing with both domestic animals and wildlife. The Officers also routinely patrol the city in a proactive attempt to address any animal issues that they may see. Within the 2014 calendar year, the four fulltime Officers responded to 2,370 calls for service. The vast majority of these calls were reports of stray animals. The investigation into animal bites and various reported violations of city ordinances and state statutes accounted for the second greatest number of calls. In addition to providing field services within the corporate city limits of Edmond, we also operate and manage the animal shelter; located at 2424 Old Timbers Drive in the Crosstimbers Municipal Complex. Animals that are found running at large by Officers, strays found by residents, and pets relinquished by owners make up the population of the animals housed at the shelter. The size limitations of the shelter in terms of animal housing enclosures continue to be a challenge for the staff, and 2014 was no exception. 1,682 animals were booked into the shelter during 2014, which resulted in populations well over the intended capacity on a daily basis. 20


2014 ANNUAL REPORT CAPTAIN BOB PRATT

SPECIAL SERVICES DIVISION One of the great misconceptions about our organization is that many people think that we are a “no-kill” shelter. While that sounds like a great concept, it is an impossible one for us as a municipal open-admission entity, meaning that as long as an animal originates from within the city limits of Edmond, we must take it in regardless of its health or behavior. A big challenge that we face because a lot of people think we are a “no-kill” shelter and because there are no resources for stray animals found in unincorporated areas, is that many animals allegedly found as strays within the city limits of Edmond are later discovered to have been found well outside of our jurisdiction. This places additional burdens on housing the animals in an already overpopulated facility. The reality is that once an animal has become the property of the City of Edmond, it is medically and behaviorally assessed for adoptability. Our resources in treating medical conditions are limited, and we cannot adopt out animals that we have reason to believe may be dangerous to humans, so in those cases the only alternative is humane euthanasia. However, if an animal’s behavior and health are good, it is processed for adoption (and receives all necessary vaccinations and sterilization surgery where applicable). In this regard, we do maintain a “low-kill” status and animals which are deemed adoptable, and continue to stay that way, are held indefinitely while they wait for an adopter. While remaining in an animal shelter for a long period of time is not an ideal situation for a dog or cat, we don’t believe that euthanizing adoptable animals due to space or length of stay is necessary or socially acceptable. Therefore we explore creative ways to help us with our constant over-crowding situation; we recruit foster families, send animals to local rescue groups, and encourage the adoption 21

of animals from our shelter through various mediums such as Facebook, media outreach, and special adoption events. Our standard adoption fee continues to be one of the very lowest in the area at only $25.00. The majority of animals handled by Animal Welfare staff are domestic dogs and cats, or common wildlife such as raccoons, skunks, opossums and deer; however on any given day any species of animal may come into our care. In 2014, in addition to dogs, cats,

The quality time the animals spend with volunteers is beneficial to them and gives the volunteers a rewarding feeling.

We appreciate the contribution of Paws for Life, Inc. – a local non-profit group that assists us monetarily by covering the costs of some medical procedures which exceed our budget capabilities. In 2014, this included several orthopedic surgeries, in-depth diagnostic testing and heartworm treatment for several dogs.

PUBLIC SAFETY CENTER UPDATE

Since the groundbreaking of the Public Safety Center and South Support Facilities in 2013 a great deal has transpired. During excavation, more than 4,000 trucks of dirt were removed; So far, 26 million pounds of concrete have been poured. The projects are still on schedule to be completed by Fall 2015. The project is funded by a 5 year half-cent sales tax that was approved by the voters in 2010. The 70,000 square foot Headquarters will house the Edmond Police Department and Public Safety Communications/Emergency Management. The 17,000 square foot support building will include the crime lab along with evidence and property storage. The architectural firm of Frankfurt-Short-Bruza (Oklahoma City) in partnership with McClaren, Wilson and Lawrie Police Architects (Phoenix) designed the building. Headquarters and the support building are being built by Timberlake Construction Company (Oklahoma City). Headquarters, located downtown, will have three stories above ground and a full-lot basement where the Detention Center and Emergency Operations Center will be housed. The building materials will feature red brick and cast stone that will fit with existing historic downtown, while also helping to modernize the look of the City campus and set the standard of future construction. The building will utilize an environmentally friendly and cost-efficient geothermal system for heating and cooling. This has been achieved by the drilling of 102 wells at a depth of 500 feet each.
