PHOENIX – On Monday November 17, 2014, The Phoenix Law Enforcement Association (PLEA) and the Phoenix Police Sergeants and Lieutenants Association (PPSLA) held a joint news conference to address mounting concerns from both memberships regarding the following issues:

A state of morale on the Phoenix Police Department that has steadily decreased since the arrival of Chief Garcia and is now at alarmingly low levels.

Chief Garcia's tyrannical and draconian mindset that punishes any who dare oppose.

A litany of missteps on the part of Chief Garcia since the beginning of his tenure two and a half years ago.

The mishandling of the situation involving former Officer Craig Tiger who had been diagnosed with PTSD and was subsequently terminated by Chief Garcia.

Both Associations with full support of their respective Boards have called for a vote of No Confidence against Chief Daniel Garcia. This is the first time in more than 20 years that a vote of No Confidence has been considered by PLEA. Together, PLEA and PPSLA represent approximately 99 percent of the Phoenix Police Officers.

Hard copy ballots will be mailed out to both memberships next week.
