imageIowa State Police Association (ISPA) Local 19, Ames, is in the final stages of preparing for the 82nd Annual ISPA Conference October 13-15, 2014. We look forward to seeing old friends and making new connections. If you haven't made plans to attend, there is still time! More information and convenient online registration can be found on our website.

The conference will begin on Monday, October 13 at 10:00 a.m. with our annual golf tournament (registration begins at 9:00 a.m.). That evening, Sgt. Rory Echer of the Ames Police Department will be smoking meat as a throwback tribute to past president Claire Keigley, who started the tradition of the Monday cookout with a hog roast at his conference in 1989. We will also feature craft beer from local Ames brewery Olde Main.

By Dave McFarland, ISPA Director

image Closing in on almost two years since being elected to the Iowa State Police Association (ISPA) Board of Directors, I can truly say I have enjoyed my time on the board and look forward to the next five years. I hope I have done a good job representing the ISPA and working for all its members, and will continue to do so in the future.

When I first joined the board, I took over the day-to-day management of the ISPA website from Past President Rob Burdess. At first there was a large learning curve, but I think I may finally have an understanding of what I'm doing. Over the last two years, the board has made many updates to the website, including:

California Casualty is in search of ISPA heroes to honor!

Since 2012, California Casualty has been sponsoring the "Nominate a Hero" program. It grew out of our desire to create a platform for people to say "thank you" to the heroes we are so honored to serve. On top of that, we wanted to add a chance for one hero to win a dream vacation valued at $10,000! It is just our small way of saying thanks for all you do.

Over the last year-and-a-half, we've received thousands of nominations, shared dozens of stories and gained an even deeper appreciation of the sacrifice our customers make on a daily basis.

imageBy Tiffany Ehler, Board President of Iowa C.O.P.S.

Iowa Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) has a large mission to uphold — to provide resources that assist in rebuilding the lives of surviving families and affected co-workers of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. There is a proactive portion of our mission, as well, and that is to provide training to law enforcement agencies on survivor victimization issues and to educate the public on the need to provide ongoing support to the law enforcement profession and its survivors.

My name is Tiffany Ehler, Board President of Iowa C.O.P.S. It is truly an honor for me to serve survivors, law enforcement officers and families of Iowa in this capacity. My passion and devotion to Iowa C.O.P.S. has enabled me to become part of a national community of people that wish they never had to come together as "survivors." But because of C.O.P.S., they are able to survive!
