- Lieutenant Todd GrossSergeant Patricia HellenNicole ArchboldMaryLou FialaJennifer Rudlong-SmithDavid ShepherdThe above personnel make up the Respiratory Protection Group that wasformed to address significant shortcomings in the respiratory protectionsystems issued to MPD officers. The group determined that some officers
didn’t have
equipment, some were using non-serviceable equipment andmany were not adequately trained and proficient in using the equipment.
They also determined there wasn’
t a reliable system for tracking theequipment issued. Addressing these shortcomings posed significantchallenges for the group.The group began meeting regularly, despite this not being a part of theirregular duties, to address this recognized need for improvement in theequipment and training for officers.In 2011 they were able to coordinate with the city doctor to develop andimplement a medical screening system to track whether officers weremedically qualified to use respirators. Initially, respiratory medicalscreening for all officers was made available during in-service training.By 2012 this had been built into the monthly health fairs which are opento all employees. Additionally in 2012 the group successfully lobbied toacquire grant funding to purchase 300 new respirators.Throughout the two-year process this group worked tirelessly to rewritethe respiratory protection guidebook, which outlines roles andresponsibilities for every officer and supervisor. Part of the programroll-out will include precinct level training on proper care and storage.Given modern day threats, the respirator has become a standard piece of equipment for officers. As a direct result of the efforts of this group, theMPD has increased its response capability and the end result is thatOfficers will be safer and the City better protected. For all of their hard
work these employees are most deserving of the Chief’s Award of Merit.
