C. Discussion of Various PCSCs’ Best Practices.
The Roseville PCSC continues to examine the current PCSC
Rules and Regulations (R & Rs) as well as best practices of other cities
with the goal to: review the existing Roseville R & R’s for continuing
applicability, update as best practices may indicate, and then approve /
communicate the revised Roseville PCSC R & Rs.
PCSC Chairperson Anderson reviewed the highlights of her
best-practice information meeting with another suburb’s PCSC that she
conducted since our last meeting. Altogether, three other PCSCs have been
interviewed by Roseville PCSC Commissioners and the process is now completed.
The rest of the PCSC meeting was devoted to reviewing the
current PCSC Rules and Regulations against: current Roseville practices,
inputs from the best-practice interviews, and current laws and regulations
concerning data privacy, etc. About half of the current R & Rs were
reviewed and edited during today’s meeting. The rest of the R & R’s will
be continued at the next PCSC meeting.
It was stated by Captain Mathwig, and confirmed by Ms.
Bacon, that the City of Roseville does not have a formal affirmative action
plan / goals therefore, the applicable referenced wording in the current
Roseville PCSC Rules and Regulations needs to be one of the aspects that
needs to reconciled in the new version that is currently being revised by the
PCSC along with Captain Mathwig’s inputs.
Action Item: Captain Mathwig
Captain Mathwig will verify Roseville’s affirmative action
position with City Manager Bill Malinen.
It was agreed that once the revised Roseville PCSC Rules
and Regulations have been completed, reviewed, and approved, they will be
available to all affected Roseville P.D. employees via the internet as is
done by other suburbs contacted during the best-practices interviews.
Other Discussion Items at This Meeting:
The PCSC is primarily focused on RPD matters related to
human resource practices as defined in the State of Minnesota statutes and
City of Roseville ordinance; therefore, Ms. Bacon was invited to attend
future Roseville PCSC meetings at her discretion, as a contributing observer.
Her inputs at today’s meeting were appreciated.
The next meeting of the Roseville PCSC is scheduled for
Tuesday, February 16, 2010. Chairperson Anderson will arrange with the City
Manager to have an agenda distributed prior to this meeting.
Once Captain Mathwig has updated the current progress on
the R & R’s and e-mailed to the PCSC, each Commissioner should review the
revised draft before the next meeting in order to be better prepared to
discuss the content and best utilize the time of all concerned.
No other items were brought up nor any other discussions.
There were no other matters brought up at this time to the
PCSC, therefore the meeting was adjourned at 2:35 pm.
