Support for El Mirage PEA 

Welcome to the El Mirage Police Employees Association (EMPEA) website. 

The EMPEA is dedicated to the employees, both Civilian and Sworn, of the City of El Mirage, Arizona Police Department.

In January 2011, a new Executive Board was voted into office. In an effort to provide information to members in a timely manner, this webiste was created.

It has come to our attention that some voters in our area may have received a deceptive flyer spreading misinformation regarding Dysart Unified School District and tax rates associated with the proposed override.

The fact is that the property tax rate needed to fund the Override is estimated to be $1.70 per $100 of assessed value, which is only a 56 cent increase over the current tax rate.  You learn the facts from the Dysart Schools Website or from   

Don’t be fooled.  The people behind the committee spreading the misinformation do not live in our community and are actively opposing school issues in other areas as well.  They don’t care about our quality of life, our property values, or our students. 

Please join your neighbors, teachers, parents, local business leaders, Mayors, city councilmembers, police and fire organizations in voting Yes on the Dysart override.

You may remember that back in November 2010, AZCOPS and the El Mirage Police Employee Association worked together to change the political environment on the city council. Not only did we change the environment, we changed the entire mayor & council. The new Council, lead by Mayor Lana Mook, are true supporters of public safety and have made it very clear their support is unwavering, so much so they want to build a new state of the art police station. They have also listened to their constiuancy who have asked for a YMCA facility, with a pool, for all to enjoy.  Mayor & Council decided that they should promote this endeavour through a voters Bond election, rather than through a city referendum. In doing so, the community has responded very positive to this. On November 8, 2011, the City of El Mirage will ask the voters to vote for the Bond, so that the city will not only have a much needed, updated new police headquarters building, it will have its first YMCA recreational facility. The leaders of our El Mirage PEA affiliate are asking for our assistance for their Bond election through financial support to the "Committee for Yes on Question #1". The committee can accept individual contributions up to $410; however, any kind of contribution will help. Contributions can be done at any Chase Bank under account #952057107. Your support in this cause is truly appreciated.
