NEWS BRIEFS: Sacramento Police Department, a founding agency of the NCPOA, once again hosted an outstanding meeting at the SPOA Hall. Although Chief Hahn was out of town, the department was well represented by members of SPD and Deputy Chief Ken Bernard. We were also honored to have Sacramento District Attorney Anne Marie Shubert in attendance. Our District Attorney is deeply troubled by some of the legislation coming out of Sacramento and continues to be a strong advocate for public safety and victim’s rights. SPD has a new contract with their personnel which should help in recruiting and retention of officers. We did receive a demonstration of the newest body camera and the capabilities. Also had their newest all terrain vehicles and personal water craft on display.  
The NCPOA is continuing to gather Scholarship Applications and if you know of any worthy candidates time is running short to get the application filed. We shall present the scholarships at the March 15, 2018 meeting in Sacramento.  

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:  Due to scheduling at the West Sacramento City Hall Galleria, the November luncheon will be held on the second Thursday, November 9th. This meeting will be hosted by the West Sacramento Police Department and Chief Tom McDonald. We will also welcome a co-host, Maria Sandoval, Assistant Executive Director of the Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training. The City Hall Galleria is always a good venue and we encourage our membership to attend this luncheon and bring a friend. New members are always welcome and great to see all our old friends.  

SAD NOTE: Detective Eugene “Geno” Chapman, Sacramento Sheriff’s Department and one of the founding members and longest serving part of the Sacramento Pig Bowl Football Classic passed away after a brief illness on September 24th, 2017 at the age of 79. Rest in peace, old friend. 

SCHOLARSHIP DONATIONS: Kathleen Shannon won the monthly drawing and Sharon Nichols was the successful bidder on some Sacramento Police Department collectables and both donated the proceeds to the Scholarship Fund. 
The NCPOA remains financially stable and the Board of Directors have authorized a donation of $2,000 to the Scholarship Fund. This is only possible through the dues and attendance at our monthly luncheons. Thank you for your support. 

NEW MEMBERS: Don and Mary Savage met retired LA Sheriff’s Captain Bruce Fogarty at a social function and told him about the NCPOA and the luncheon the next day and Bruce made the trip and joined. Welcome aboard. 
Mary Savage and John “Dusty” Deryck are the newest life members. Members over the age of 50 with five years membership can become a life member for just $200. Name tags are complimentary for Life Members.

TREASURERS REPORT: The Red Book of luncheon receipts and checkbook expenditures are available at the Treasurer's desk at every meeting. Membership renewals are going great for this year. Remember to pick up your membership card from the Treasurer at the next meeting. If you don’t know if you are current, ask the Treasurer, he has the roster at all the meetings or email him at rdenham@ncpoa.net. The treasurer will either endorse your membership card or issue you another upon request. We will mail you a membership card upon request if you include a SASE or you may pick yours up at a luncheon.
If you do not have an NCPOA name tag or are having a hard time remembering your name, the name tags are $8 and can be obtained from the Treasurer.
