Not only do we fight hard for our members, but we pay 100% of the costs associated with representing a member during internal investigations and disciplinary appeals (including arbitration fees). We also pay 100% of the costs associated with defending a member against criminal charges that resulted from the member’s performance of official duties. In addition, we pursue affirmative litigation to enforce the provisions of local and/or state law when the public employer fails to comply with those laws.
We provide expert political assistance to members and affiliated local associations in preparing for and winning local elections for civil service, collective bargaining, and pay raise referendums. Our staff of full-time lobbyists give thousands of law enforcement officers the strongest possible voice in Austin.
Regional representation by our full-time labor relations staff assists members and associations on a wide variety of collective bargaining and labor-related negotiations issues. We also provide assistance to members wishing to form a local association, including the preparation and filing of state-required documents.
