From the President:
The leaves are starting to turn and we are still on lockdown; as you may have gathered, the October meeting is canceled. It looks like the PBA Valentine’s Dinner/Dance may be our best chance to get back to some sense of normalcy, if things improve with the virus. A tip of the hat to the members celebrating their birthday this month and a bow of the head to those who are no longer with us. Along the same lines, it was learned that Jess Sanchez #1954, passed on October 7 th . There is no further at this time. I provided Leroy with a short list of members for whom the PBA does not have a birthday month. My apologies for not having the information. Send Leroy or me the proper month or if you know the month for a departed member and it will be updated. The photos sent in to Leroy of your breakfast or lunch gathering is much appreciated. Please continue to share for the rest of the members. It is always nice to see pictures of former PD members. I am still looking for someone to break the ice and submit a birthday photo; all it takes is one and the rest will follow. Take care all and be safe,
Phyllis Ann Trussler was born on September 24, 1936 and passed away on May 1, 2020 and is under the care of Rogue Valley Funeral Alternatives.

Steve Jeffrey’s Candidate Statement for POA Vice President
As we all are abundantly aware, we as law enforcement officers and as a police officers association are in the midst of some unprecedently times locally and throughout our country; and have faced an extreme level of scrutiny in all aspects of our professional and personal lives. The current political environment is proving to be a very difficult challenge now and will certainly continue to be in the future. The numerous proposed statewide legislative changes will continue to be challenge in the years to come and we must be prepared and willing to stand up for what is right to ensure that we protect our officer rights and to ensure that we all have to the opportunity to safely do our jobs. It is my belief that in times like these it is more important than ever to remain diligent in our support of each other and stand strong together as we traverse these turbulent times.
A trustworthy, membership focused association is vital during the crucial times we currently face. We are a brotherhood that must remain united; and trust must be at the very core of this association. The current association regime has shattered that trust by failing to perform its most basic function of membership support. This is not acceptable. We are an association that needs to get back to the basics by supporting our members and creating an environment where we all can thrive both professional and personally. The current times are not perfect, and the foreseeable future will be difficult, but I believe a change is necessary within our association and we must give ourselves the opportunity to once again thrive as an association through membership support and a positive outlook.
If elected to the position of Vice-President of the San Jose Police Officers Association, I purpose the following areas of focus:
- Immediately work tirelessly to regain the trust of our entire membership
- Negotiate for better wages and benefits for our entire membership
- Improve the quality of our work environment with a focus on employee attraction and retention.
- Provide proper representation and membership support
- Provide increased communication and transparency of association activities
- Increase our political footprint through aggressive political action
- Increase our engagement and support of the communities we serve
I have worked for the City of San Jose for 22 years. Throughout my career with the San Jose Police Department I have served as a patrol officer, Field Training Officer, Traffic Enforcement Unit, Special Events Team and Criminal Intelligence Unit. I am currently assigned to patrol as a District Sergeant. Prior to my law enforcement career, I was a member of Sheet Metal Workers Local 104 and San Jose International Firefighters Local 230. I am also proud to say that a large portion of my family are members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers IBEW 595. I have been associated with labor my whole adult life.
Therefore, I am seeking your vote for the position of Vice-President of the San Jose Police Officers Association. Your voice matters and this November, you and the entire membership will have a choice to move forward with a positive purposeful change or remain rooted in the current stagnant existence. I believe that we must adapt as the world changes around us and as we face significant change it is extremely import to have a police officers association that has its entire membership’s best interest at heart and an association that is willing to protect its own to the end.
I recognize that our police officer’s association is not the executive board’s association or their political platform, it is an association that belongs to all the hard working men and women of the San Jose Police Department who deserve better; who deserve to be heard and protected at all costs. If elected, I will work diligently to help create a police officer’s association that we can all be proud of and an association that we can all feel confident in knowing we will be supported in both our professional and personal lives.
Remember: This is OUR association! YOU are a critical part! We must ALL stand as one!
Thank you for your consideration.
