2005 IPMBA Conference

Many thanks to Chief Alan Rodbell and the Scottsdale Police Department for hosting the 15th Annual IPMBA Conference. Countless hours go into hosting this event, and Scottsdale did a near-flawless job. Participants from 34 states and seven countries enjoyed the fine hospitality offered by the members of the Scottsdale Police Department, the community, the merchants, and the neighboring agencies. On the lips of many participants rang the sentiment, “will you host us every year?”

Thanks to Our Hosts

Many thanks to Chief Alan Rodbell and the Scottsdale Police Department for hosting the 15th Annual IPMBA Conference.  Countless hours go into hosting this event, and Scottsdale did a near-flawless job.  Participants from 34 states and seven countries enjoyed the fine hospitality offered by the members of the Scottsdale Police Department, the community, the merchants, and the neighboring agencies.  On the lips of many participants rang the sentiment, “will you host us every year?” 

Special thanks to Officer Ron Gorski, whose more than ten years experience in attending the IPMBA Conference shone through from every angle.  Lt. Tony Gibson guided the conference into smooth waters at every turn, aided by Sgt. Chris Wilson and the officers of the Scottsdale PD Bicycle Unit:  Craig Abernethy, Chet Anderson, Darren Hinrichs, Mark Johnson, Jason Kibsey, Craig Malley, John Miller, Jeromie O’Meara, and Kevin Watts.  They were supported by Community Liaison officer Chris Vassall and many other members of the department. 

Many other local departments provided personnel to assist with the conference.  IPMBA appreciates the efforts of Sgt. Dave Moore (Phoenix PD); Dan Elting (Phoenix Regional Community Policing Institute); Capt. Ray Morris and Firefighters Ken Coomber, Pat Schuller, David McCall, Todd Pendleton, and Robert Chisholm of Rural/Metro; Sgt. Steve Harvey and Officers Andy McIlveen, Jason Barnes, Preston Pierce, Dave Sitz, Dave Selvidge, and Dan McQuillan of the Chandler PD; Officers Heather Penner and Steve Robertson of the Tempe PD; Lt. P.J. Janik of the Prescott Valley PD; and Melvin Young of Navajo Nation EMS.  We are also grateful to the Mesa PD for the use of their firing range.  And, of course, Tri-State Regional Community Policing Institute of Cincinnati, Ohio, once again provided AV support and the help of Al Jones and Roger McHugh. 

As always, the exchange of information that took place at the conference was staggering.  It is safe to say that IPMBA is living up to its reputation as the premier provider of training and networking opportunities for public safety cyclists.
