PebbleCreek Republican Club’s May meeting highlights

Liz Gibson

The PebbleCreek Republican Club welcomed members and invited guests to the Thursday, May 3 meeting in the Tuscany Falls Chianti Room. Following a social time at 6:30 p.m. the meeting began at 7:00 p.m. There was, as always, a complimentary snack table, provided through members’ dues.

We were pleased to have Jerry Geier, Goodyear Chief of Police, as our speaker. Chief Geier, who has an outstanding resume including Quantico, presented a lively and very informative view of the many aspects of Goodyear’s Police Department. With 128 dedicated employees, their mission statement is: “In partnership with the community, we contribute to the quality of life through diligent patrol, community-oriented policing and enforcement of the law to maintain the peace and protect the rights of those we serve.”

The Department takes great pride in providing excellent customer service to the community. Among the protective and proactive policing programs are the Police/School Substation Program, Prescription Drug Disposal Box Program, Police Assistant Program, Coffee with a Cop Program, and the integration of Social Media, resulting in a low crime rate. There will be a Q & A time following the presentation.

The PCRC has presented many outstanding and informative programs throughout the year which have enjoyed a tremendous response. This program gave us a great up close and personal insight into our community.
