SAN ANTONIO (May 12, 2022) — The following is a statement from District 4 Councilwoman regarding City Council's vote on the Collective Bargaining Agreement with the San Antonio Police Officers' Association:

"After 33 public negotiation sessions honoring the City's commitment to a more transparent and accessible negotiation process, the Collective Bargaining Agreement with the San Antonio Police Officers' Association addresses some of the disciplinary process concerns that needed serious revisions even before the last contract was adopted in 2016. Although there is no perfect contract, thanks to the input of the public, the City's women-led negotiation team was able to rebalance the disciplinary process in a way that still allows for due process for the accused officer and gives proper weight to the Police Chief's decisions. If it were not for the outcry of people and egregious miscarriages of justice across our country, we would not be confronting uncomfortable truths and having conversations about the need to reform our justice system."

"While maintaining public safety spending below 66% of the General Fund, this contract also includes competitive wages and benefits which will help the City retain and attract police officers as the City continues to grow. Increasing the residency points for cadet applicants living in San Antonio from 1 to 5 is another is a component of this contract that resonates with the idea of what community policing means to our residents."

"The willingness of both the City and SAPOA to go through good faith negotiations for the past year demonstrates how compromises can be reached that serve the public good."
