As some of you may be aware, a proposal has been put forward to explore the consolidation of the KCPD Communications Unit within a MARC Regional Communications Dispatch Center.
I wanted to let our members know that Lodge 99 and the CBU have been involved in discussions pertaining to this proposition and that we have voiced our opposition to it.
I strongly encourage you all to join us at our next meeting on May 7th to hear more about where this issue stands.

Brothers & Sisters,
PO Joe Malena's wife passed away on Saturday after years of fighting cancer. During her battle Joe spent a significant amount of time and money traveling for her treatment. Brother Malena is now left to plan a funeral, care for his 2 young children, and recover from the financial hardship this has caused.
Joe Malena is a very strong and proud man. He has not requested any help from his LE family and in fact initially refused. But, as family does, we have insisted on helping carry Joe through this difficult time.
So, the KCFOP has created the Jackie Malena Memorial account at the KC Police Credit Union. This account will be gifted to Joe Malena and his family to help cover funeral cost, past medical bills and travel expenses, and any future expenses the family may incur.
Donations can be made directly to the credit union by requesting deposit into the Jackie Malena Memorial account or to any FOP E-Board member or Steward.
Family always takes care of each other, please help out with what you can.

The Kansas City Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #99 was happy to sponsor KCPD Friends and Families' 2015 Easter Egg Hunt!
Thanks to the Friends and Family for hosting this great event, and to our very own Steve Miller for representing the Lodge!!
This is to announce that the KCFOP Lodge 99 will hold their monthly general membership meeting and all FOP members are cordially invited to attend.
The meeting has changed this month from Tuesday to Thursday April 9, 2015. One Recognized Organization, One strong united Voice… For more information, refer to the attached flier or visit the FOP website.
When: Thursday April 9, 2015
Where: 3rd floor, 527 West 39th Street (parking to the north and south of the lodge)
Time: The meeting starts at 7 p.m.
The Kansas City, Missouri Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge #99
Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge #99 Political Action Committee
endorse the following candidates in the:
Kansas City, Missouri City Council Primary
April 7th , 2015
District Candidate 1st Heather Hall 1st - At Large Scott Wagner 2nd Dan Fowler 3rd - At Large Quinton Lucas 4th Jolie Justice 5th Alissia Canady 5th - At Large Dwayne Williams (write-in candidate) 6th Kevin McManus 6th - At Large Scott Taylor
These candidates are those who will do the most to advance the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department, our Lodge, and most importantly, our Members.
It has been reported to me that there are rumors circulating around the Department that the FOP, Lodge 99, will only support a member during a criminal investigation of a duty related incident, but once the member is indicted or charged, the rumor is that the Lodge will no longer pay for the member’s defense. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY NOT TRUE.
The Lodge provides legal defense to criminal charges, including a jury or bench trial, for any member that is charged with a crime when the alleged criminal conduct occurs within the scope of the member’s employment. We have Lodge attorneys that handle all of these matters for Lodge members. We also have relationships with other criminal defense experts, who will be brought on board to work with our Lodge attorneys on a particular case.
If a member decides on his or her own to retain his or her own outside attorney who has no relationship with our Lodge, we will support the member’s personal decision, but the member will be financially obligated to pay for that outside attorney.
Again, any rumors or suggestions that our Lodge will not support members who have been charged or indicted for actions within the scope of their employment are simply not true.
I hope that this information puts an end to these baseless rumors. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me

Brothers and Sisters,
By now, many of you may have heard about our brother Jake Ramsey. We have issued a press release and it’s our intent to not try this case in a public forum. Lodge 99 has stood behind Jake throughout this process, and will continue supporting him through this trying time. Jake will need all of our support and as such the FOP has opened the Jake Ramsey account at our Credit Union. Please make sure that you take the time to help his family out.
Additionally, there will be calls to address this issue in social media, please refrain from doing so. Officer Ramsey is an amazing officer with a stellar career and he deserves our support. Its okay to support our brother, but please don’t put yourself into a position where your personal thoughts could cause different issues.
Always remember, we take care of our own.
KCFOP, Lodge 99
FOP Lodge 99 Statement RE: OFFICER JACOB RAMSEY
Officer Ramsey justifiably defended himself against a felon previously convicted of resisting arrest, narcotics and illegal possession of a firearm. Officer Ramsey’s actions were in compliance with state and federal law and all Departmental policies.
The FOP and its members stand firmly behind Officer Ramsey, who has a flawless record and is an impeccable police officer. The FOP will devote all of its substantial resources to the defense of Officer Ramsey, and will stand by him throughout this process, which will ultimately lead to his acquittal.
The FOP and Officer Ramsey will not have any further comment on this issue and we ask that the media respect Officer Ramsey’s privacy as he and his family prepare to fight this baseless charge.
