Joe Surges, State Legislative Representative

Legislation has a direct effect on the jobs we perform daily in law enforcement. It is important to keep yourself aware of these changes. To learn more, our CLEARS Legislative Representative is working hard to keep the members of our organization on top of the daily events.

But that's not all our legislative teams can do. A single letter of recommendation to the CLEARS State Executive Board recommending legislation changes in any area of law enforcement records can make a difference for everyone.  Your effort in taking a moment to draft a letter and participating in the efforts to change help legislators could have a positive impact in the future development of your position or the future records personnel in California.  Be sure to contact your Chapter legislation representatives or the State CLEARS Legislative Representative today.

CLEARS Legislative Successes

CLEARS was successful in the Governor vetoing SB 1425 and AB 1987 which would have made big changes to the retirement benefits currently being received. In a letter to the State Senate, the Governor wrote...

"To the Members of the California State Senate:
   I am returning Senate Bill 1425 without my signature. The enactment of this bill is contingent upon the enactment of Assembly Bill (AB) 1987 (Ma). I am vetoting AB 1987 because it doesn not provide real pension reform. I am still hopeful that the Legislature will pass an acceptable bill that really addresses California's pension problem.  For this reason, I am unable to sign this bill." ~ 

CLEARS was legislatively successful in the vetoing of a bill that would have required agencies to report on how many untested rape kits were being maintained each year by agencies which would have placed a financial burden on local agencies...the Governor agreed. This bill had been supported by victim's rights groups but was opposed by law enforcement, led by CLEARS. LE would have supported this bill had funding been included with the proposal but it was represented as an unfunded mandate.

One of the primary goals of CLEARS is to promote the exchange of information and communication among its members and the law enforcement community as a whole. As the organization has grown over the years, so has the need for an effective vehicle to achieve that goal.

Since its inception in 1981, the California Police Recorder (CPR) magazine has grown from a small newsletter type publication into a professionally published quarterly magazine.

Our objective is to...

  • To produce an informative, professional publication on a quarterly basis;
  • To further the professional image of CLEARS and law enforcement records managers;
  • To further communication and information exchange between law enforcement agencies;
  • To strengthen the unity of the statewide CLEARS organization

CPR is staffed by managing editor(s), a publication committee and one representative from each Chapter.

 

Each individual CLEARS Chapter is responsible for maintaining their respective Chapter information in accordance with the CLEARS State By-Laws prescribed and governed by the CLEARS State Executive Board.  Each President is responsible for reviewing the content created by their respective Web Site Representative on behalf of the Chapter Boards. The following Chapters include: Superior, Northern, Central, Central Coast, Southern, Inland and Border. Membership applications for all of the CLEARS Chapters are available for download on each Chapter Web site.

It is the goal of the CLEARS organization to develop its maximum potential and to be a complete resource for its members.

The CLEARS Strategic Plan is comprised of three (3) initial goals:

  1. To enhance training
  2. To further internal organizational development
  3. To further external organizational development

The CLEARS Strategic Plan is intended as a catalyst to encourage planning and development by each Executive Board.  The time frame is not absolute; it allows flexibility for future boards to adapt the stated goals to the current needs of the organization.  With this strategic plan, as CLEARS moves forward with this focus, we will constantly measure our progress and evaluate outcomes to ensure we are meeting our goals.

The objectives for each goal are broad statements drawn from the needs and desires expressed by the membership.  This allows for the creativity and imagination of the organization in accomplishing the goal.  Each and every objective fulfilled is an important step toward the stated goal. 

It is intended that each new board assess the status of the plan, amend if appropriate and throughout its terms, report on its contribution toward fulfillment.  The assessment will be conducted by the last quarter of each year and any recommended changes will be assessed and then adopted by the first meeting of the following year.
