3:00 am
involved in the ois in the same county. but [speaker not understood], that's simply where there may be a jurisdictional issue. >> and i can jump in, my fellow commissioner. if there is an issue of the conflict, the importance of the independence of the investigation. so, if there is a suggestion there is conflict within the d.a., the department of justice in the state can investigate except for budget cuts. it still is more difficult and they tend to do it in smaller police departments that don't have any ability to do that themselves, so. >> one more question. similar to the question officer loft us asked about, whether they're out of policy finding have been for the d.a., do you know just in recent history have they ever charged for an ois -- * >> charge an officer? >> um-hm. >> not -- just having reviewed like the last 10 years
3:01 am
recently, certainly not in the last 10 years. i'm not offhand aware of a case where there's been a criminal charge. not in my memory. >> not mine either. okay. and then with the firearm discharge review board, you included a list of the composition of that board. and i wanted to ask if there's any changes in that composition. i remember a couple months ago we did talk with the chief, some of us, about including someone from training and potentially from tactics. i wondered if that is in here. >> this reflects the current structure. so, there haven't been any changes. this varies a little bit from the general order because it reflects the change in the department command structure so the general order is a little kind of off, it's a little behind the times a little bit in that regard specifically.
3:02 am
but as far as anyone else that we'd like to add, this reflects the current structure. >> i do believe someone from the academy has been at the last couple fdrbs. >> yes. and also, the range master is part of the academy in training. >> right. >> but the way you listed it, this is based off of what the dgo requires, correct? >> yes. >> okay, that's good to know. the reason i ask that is that sometimes for thing they might not be out of policy, but it might be recommendation for further training or a change in tactics and in policy. having someone in these meetings so they can identify that need. okay. and then lastly wanted to ask about the behavioral science critical incident. and this might be -- this might be for that unit, but i know that president ma zzucco and myself have been focused on
3:03 am
that issue and giving officers as much support as possible. * we had asked for a change where there's more services provided, more mandatory briefings. i wanted to ask how that's been going and maybe that's a different presentation. >> there is mandatory debrief after every shooting. officers are afforded additional things through their health care plan should they need counseling. the behavioral science unit follows up on top of that. frankly, we were fortunate in that we didn't have an ois in the last quarter and much of which you're discussing happened after that unfortunate last year a low year all the way around for ois, although we had 16 for the entire year. >> i'd like to follow-up on that. one of the questions, we had a presentation about the officer's well-being is that they further mandatory briefing thereafter. the ptsd, posttraumatic stress syndrome doesn't kick into
3:04 am
place until about 90 days afterwards. so there was a request the 90 day remark around there, there was a follow-up with our mental health professionals in the department. so, i think that that was instituted. i just want to make sure. >> yeah, it was, but again in the last 100 something days we haven't had one. >> are bsu folks have followed up with the last couple of officers. i know they follow-up every 36 -- there's a follow-up days and weeks after with the officer. they're checking. and also we're integrating -- we've integrated some of this -- some of what bsu does with regard to posttraumatic stress is going to be a natural consequence of a lethal force encounter. it is a -- but posttraumatic stress injury or posttraumatic express disorder is an injury that after about 90 days, if
3:05 am
you're retaining some of the symptoms, that may be a sign there is something more than simply posttraumatic stress. what's great is we have a class for supervisors on officer involved shootings and we have the behavioral science unit folks come out and they have a block in there and they talk about recognizing the stress -- the symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder. it's a block of instruction for the supervisors. so, we're making sure that the field supervisor who is keeping an eye on this officer kind of understands what to look for and what to do in the event they see there is something else going on. >> great. >> also we do have dr. martin coming out this month to talk to the officers about emotional survival 3 sessions, one at the airport and one up here in the city. >> great. well, sergeant krudo, thank you very much. it was a great presentation and i appreciate all the hard work and effort that went into it. thank you. >> thank you.
3:06 am
>> and then the final piece of the presentation, that is budget presentation overview by director maureen gannon and her able number 2 carolyn we will shall. >> good evening, commissioners. i'm maureen gannon. i've been with the department since june of 2012, but with the city for several years, 15 years. so, it's a pleasure to work in the department. and i hope to meet with you individually as the need arises. so, tonight carolyn and i are just going to go over kind of a budget overview at a relatively high level. our sworn hiring plan so you know how we're doing on that. a recivilianization or recivilianization effort, the new building, the public safety building, our technology initiatives that we're seeking funding for and other capital
3:07 am
improvement projects and vehicles which is the major push for our budget this year. as you may recall, last year we presented and the board voted on a two-year budget. so, that's our budget is pretty much set. we're just sort of tweaking things that have come up. in addition, in the current year the mayor's office asked us to cut $1.5 million off of our base budget and we were able to do that with revenue solutions and some expenditure adjustments which did not impact operations or staffing. so, as you can see, our budget for next year, this is our revenue. and as you can see, most of our revenue comes from general fund, city support. state revenue on the 41 million is prop 172 public safety tax. our federal revenue is actually primarily the money that we get
3:08 am
from the housing authority to provide the additional service there. it's hud money. the airport of course pays for all their services. other departments pay for our services. and then [speaker not understood] charges, those are just permits such as alarm, responding to alarms, thing like that. so, our next slide talks about how we spend all of our revenue and not surprisingly most of our revenue -- most of our expenditure is in salaries and fringe benefits, about 88% of our budget goes to staffing and nonpersonnel and professional services, it's about 13.6 million. and what that includes are our annual i-t costs, licensing, rents, the litigation and judgments is in this category, copying services, entering the expenditures are in that
3:09 am
nonpersonnel professional service. material and supplies, you know, office equipment, this is also where we budget for ammunition and bullet proof vests, leather gear for our officers. capital outlay, this year it's primarily related to the new public safety building, about $8 million has been budgeted for furniture fixtureseses and equipment for our new building that's being constructed. and then the services of other departments. we pay other departments for services. primarily that's our workers' comp, central shop and that's about it. this slide just gives you sort of a sense of the services that we provide for our other departments. the airport, of course, being our largest client, if you will. mta funds 80 total positions
3:10 am
for us, support for two positionses and some overtime. public utilities funds one position out at their new headquarters. the library is for overtime. and human service agency, we provide security at the location where food stampses are applied for. so that help them therethv moscone center as needed. treasure island and dpw on there, some security as dpw goes out in the neighborhood for a speedy abatement. so, our next slide talks about our positions. as i mentioned, you know about 89% of our budget is personnel. so, it's important to look at as our sworn fte. last year, we have 22 13
3:11 am
positions, sworn positions budgeted. next year we will be at 22 01, which seems a little downtowner intuitive, but we are in a major hiring initiatives. and the reason for that is is that we have more people retiring than we have hiring right now. civilian positions are going on, part of our recivilianization plan getting officers back to do patrol duties, and having civil yens be at headquarters basically. there is a breakdown of the airport and our other sworn officers and civilianses as well. we have civilians at the airport for public services. and then all others are in administration essentially. this next slide is interesting, i think, because it shows the progression of when we
3:12 am
implement our hiring plan, it's a very aggressive plan but it will take us to december of december 18 to get to full staffing. so, i think you know, last year with the mayor's help we were able to get a lot of money to get up to full staffing. but as you can see, what would have happened, the purple line indicates what would have happened had we not been funded for all these academy classes. so, you can see that there was a recognition by the mayor's office as well as others that we really did need to hire. it's also interesting to note that this summer in june of 13 we will be at 1644 is a pretty low number. so, the good news is that the hiring plan is going very well. we've been able to recruit a
3:13 am
lot of people. so, our goal for each year is 150 recruits. and the 30 that you see in 2012-13 are additional 30 positionses that the airport is funding. so far we've hired 110 people and they're in process. we've had a class of laterals and two full academy classes. we plan to hire 20 laterals in april and another 50 recruits in may. and our recivilianization plan, essentially the concept is that throughout the years we have lost civilian positions due to budget cuts. and, so, officers have come back into administrative duty. so, with the mayor's help in april when we started to negotiate, we identified 52 positions that are performed by officers that could be aloely
3:14 am
performed by civilians. so, in 12-13, we got 21 civilian positions then allowing 21 officers to go back on the street. and in 13-14 that number is 31. and we have made a lot of progress in hiring our 21 positions. fully half are either filled or in recruitment status or backgrounds. so, that is going very well. in addition to our hiring plan of academies, civilianization, last year there were some scheduling efficiencies that were instituted. primarily what that entailed, we had officers working 10-hour days or working four days a week. and they were switched to working five 8-hour days.
3:15 am
so, essentially by doing that we have about gained 56 ftes per year at no cost to the department. so, that's an incredible savings that is ongoing. and significantly more officers are now able to be assigned to nights and weekends. so, our new public safety building is going well with steel construction began last month. construction is slated to be completed in 2014 with the department moving in in october of 2014. so, that's very exciting for those of us who have our offices at hall of justice. we are working with dpw to develop the new strategy as
3:16 am
well as finalize the furniture, the fixtures, the i-t equipment that's going to be inside that building. every year we are asked by the controller and the mayor's office to put together a list of it projects that we would especially like to cull out or major initiatives. so, these are the four items we have specifically asked for funding for through the mayor's office. it goes through a committee. the [speaker not understood] committee and they make recommendations to the board. we would like to expand our current data warehouse to include search capabilities and develop an application for a mobile device. we need to improve the connectivity of the network essentially in the patrol vehicles. so, the laptops are more efficient. we are looking at trying to secure funding for mobile devices for all of our officers
3:17 am
and that device has not been determined yet, but that's something that we're working very hard to. and finally, we're asking for money to develop a website which is a community sharing of crime information sort of an interactive website where the public can ask questions, give us information, you know, provide videos, photos from crime incidents. it's very exciting. so, that's another initiative that we're asking for. we will not know till probably mid april what the recommendations of the [speaker not understood] committee will be. the capital improvements i believe are modest. we've gotten in last year, as you recall, we're in a two-year budget. we were approved for the stables. we received 2 27,000 for a roof and repair to a structure. *
3:18 am
and like we said, range renovation was a half a million dollars and those projects are on -- ready to go. and in 14-15 we've asked for a couple of important things. the mission station needs some security sensing, skew me. it's a high-risk area. so, this will provide some limited access into the station. the traffic division needs to be relocated from the hall of justice. because we're going to be vacating the hall of justice. so, we're looking for a spot for the traffic. and then there is very specific district station in the academy improvement. the sally 4 parking lots, hvac, water heaters which are, you know, things just our stations are older and they need, they need improvements. and i don't think we're going to get new stations in the next budget.
3:19 am
and finally, we are going to be approaching the mayor's office and asking for some additional money for vehicles. our fleet is very, very old. if you see it outside the halls of justice, 79 or 27% of our marked cars have over 100,000 miles. we have vehicle service since 1985, we have six. 350 of our vehicles are allowed because, as an exception to the city's environmental clean air policy because we're public safety. so, you know, the need is great and i believe there is a recognition of that from the mayor's office. however, we're just hoping that we can push that priority this year. it is an unfunded liability. obviously we have a five-year replacement schedule that we're looking at implementing with the mayor's office.
3:20 am
it's quite detailed, and it really articulates well our need for new cars. and i think if you talk to any of our officers, none of them would dispute that. and, so, i know that was pretty fast and furious, but you know, we're open for any questions now or later. >> great. you just heard dr. marshall, this has been an incredible presentation. thank you. it's right to the point. it has the exact numbers. it's excellent. so, thank you very much. with reference to the fleet, i see that, 350 of our cars are 12 years or older? >> that's correct. >> and the rule is were they nonemergency vehicles, we wouldn't be allowed to use them by the current code. so there is an exception in the code for emergency vehicles and director began on and carolyn did just a terrific job with the budget. we're so lucky to have them. one thing that's not in there,
3:21 am
though, in the thing, it's sort of unspoken or common sensical. the maintenance on these cars, our maintenance bill is tremendous. and, so, if the fleet were newer, if the fleet were more efficient, with the uncertainty of gas prices, a lot of variable costs would all of a sudden become very predictable if the cars were on a five-year replacement schedule, on warranty and on and on and son. so, just from a common sensical reason, i'm sure those 1985s are off warranty and pretty much on the city dime. >> it is also an officer safety concern. we're putting our officers in bad equipment. and the public, so, thank you very much for doing that. and, again, this was an excellent report. again succinct to the point and this is perfect. i'm going to keep this one. commissioner kingsley? >> ms. gannon, thank you very
3:22 am
much for the presentation and the materials. the capital outlay, is that primarily the new public safety building? you're nodding yes. >> yeah, 8 million of that is for the new public safety building. for the furniture, for just cubicle computers equipment, anything that's not attached to the building is the way the engineers have told me. that's what the 8 million coffers. the other 1.6 is essentially the debt service on our leased vehicleses. as you may know, we supply some of our vehicleses directly through the general fund and some are paid through public finance. so, there is like an interest payment on -- and that's an accumulation of several years. >> are we directly working with the construction company that
3:23 am
is building the public safety building or is that going through a different arm of the city government? >> well, dpw is taking the lead. they're the project managers. however, we have, as you may recall, retired captain john goldberg is working with dpw. and interfacing with the construction. and captain connolly is working directly with project managers. i can say that the design team has been involved the staff a lot. i mean, they've come by with presentations and samples and taken us over to the puc building to see what works, what doesn't work. so, i think it's been an interactive process. >> nor oriously construction projects get out of hand or go beyond budget. * notoriously bay bridge, fine example.
3:24 am
do we have -- is department of public works, are we using a dispute resolution board on the side to make sure that, you know, this stays on track? what do we have to assure us that this is going to be built within budget? >> well, i know that dpw is very concerned about constantly staying on track and they have a very sophisticated project controls system that monitors the cost. in terms of the dispute resolution, i'd have to get back with you on that. >> that's okay. i'm more concerned around safeguards that we have in place to assure that we don't get, you know, 75% the way through and find out in the last few months that we need to come up with another, you know, 3, 4, $5 million or something of that nature. >> i think the mayor's office is going to help us stay on
3:25 am
target for that. >> good. >> and we do have a good model. the new public utilities building was built within budget and on time. and that's sort of the model that they're using and there is an engineering [speaker not understood] escapes me at this moment, but it's like a parallel process so it's designing and building. so, that has sped up the process. and i know that the mayor's office has been meeting with dpw and our representatives quite frequently about the cost. >> i also know that the recession, we are hurt in a lot of areas, in the areas of construction it helped because there was so much value engineering done for a lot of the bids that were -- came in at x, came in at y. which helped with budgeting actually all budgets across the city, not just the police department. >> great, thank you. >> commissioner chan. >> thank you for your presentation. i just have a question about the it projects.
3:26 am
this is something i ask every year because i'm always hoping this is something that will happen. for the mobile devices, i assume it means like blackberries and specialized devices to give officers a connection to criminal databases. my hope is this also includes cell phones for officers -- >> it means a phone. >> they can use it for all of the above? >> it means a smart phone. >> is this related to fingerprint, being able to take fingerprints in the field also or is that different? >> you know, director griffin -- at some point in time the answer to everything is hopefully yes. now we're shopping for the smart phone that would best give us access and we're working closely with folks in the attorney general's office to figure out how we can clip that on a smart phone. the security is called fip, not secure enough on an i phone
3:27 am
which is just as well because it would be outside of our price range. [speaker not understood]. it appears that an android type smart phone would be capable. san diego had it out, but it didn't meet the [speaker not understood] requirement so they were told they had to take it back again. so, right now we believe that there is a mobile oracle map that matches with our data warehouse at the very least take the crimes out of warehouse and allow the officers to have a phone. and as we get more access, again, all the rules with regard to criminal justice information were all written before there was the ability to get things electronically. so, we're engaged in those conversations, but yes, fingerprints, however, would be clep data. it's all a work in progress, all part of the plan. >> thank you. and just [speaker not understood], i think it would
3:28 am
be great to have mobile devices that will allow the officers to access [speaker not understood] line and include as many of those related language budget items as possible. do think the mayor's office and board of supervisors would be receptive to that piece. >> it will. >> thank you. >> dr. marshall. >> wonderful presentation, great. i've seen a lot of these and go right to the top. it looks like the two-year budgeting idea was a good one. it allows you to -- gives you a little planning and you can tweak things here. this also allows you to see where your ideas and your priorities lie for the next year. i like this a lot, the sworn hiring plan. it's interesting to see where we would have been [speaker not understood] by the middle of what, june?
3:29 am
we've been down to 14 80 officers, 500 away. my only thought here, i just want to make sure this is true. in terms of reaching full duty by december 2018, if these [speaker not understood] academy classes are projected to be, i'm assuming this takes an anticipated retirement, right? >> yes, it does. >> just want to make sure. thank you. >> for our timeline, when do we get to see the actual proposed budget? this is a presentation that summarizes budget -- the budget plan. when do we get proposed budgeter? do we not see it for two years? >> next week. >> we're still awaiting some members from the mayor's office and from some of our other departments. but next week. >> essentially, this is what it looks -- >> essentially this is what it looks like. we haven't loaded it into the budget system.
