PLEA Treasurer Darrell Kriplean was recently elected to serve on the City of Phoenix’s Local Pension Board representing all sworn Phoenix Police Officers, regardless of rank.
Under Arizona Revised Statutes, employers participating in the Public Safety Retirement System, PSPRS, form Local Boards which act as the local administrative bodies to the main, statewide system. The City of Phoenix Retirement Office serves as Local Board staff and the Retirement Administrator serves as the Local Board Secretary. This board consists of one Local Board for sworn police employees and one Local Board for sworn fire employees. Each board consists of two elected members, two citizen members, and a Mayoral appointee.
PLEA would like to congratulate Darrell and would also like to thank and acknowledge everyone who took the time to participate in this year’s election. Darrell will officially be sworn in later this month at the June 27th City Council Meeting.
