A notice of claim was filed to make sure SWAT officers are compensated appropriately. Diplomacy did not work when we notified administration many times that this was occurring. This same scenario is happening all over the state, and
Mesa is not the first city that has claims like this being made.


If you feel you were asked to work a questionable flex schedule, on-call and were not compensated for it, please make sure to call our attorney, Kathryn Baillie, on her cell phone at 623-293-8980.


Unfortunately, we have had to litigate against the city twice before and were successfully. Our preference is to work things out with the city to the extent possible. However, we don’t have much of a choice if the city continues to take advantage of our officer’s good will. We hope for a just and amicable resolution.
