MPA Response to Recent Police Settlements

Dear MPA Members,

There has been recent discussion regarding settlements the City of Mesa has made due to past officer-involved shootings. The city has every right to decide to settle on behalf of the citizens of Mesa.  However, we are reminding the public and the media that these pay-outs DO NOT suggest that the officers involved are at fault, and they have all been cleared administratively by the police department and criminal by the county attorney’s office. They acted appropriately due to protocol.

We back our members 110%, and refuse to let public perception get in the way of facts.
If you have questions, please feel free to contact a board member.
