Cal-OSHA Article Statement From CACEO


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

December 19, 2019

On December 13, 2019 “Cal-OSHA Reporter” published an article regarding the issue of code enforcement officer safety on their website and in print.  The article contained statements and information given by an individual who was not authorized to speak on behalf of the California Association of Code Enforcement Officers (CACEO).  The article indicated that CACEO intends to author legislation containing specific officer safety mandates.  CACEO’s Legislation and Officer Safety Committees are currently working on an officer safety bill, but have not yet finalized the content or specific language of the proposed bill.  CACEO intends to collaborate with its partners on this important and necessary piece of legislation.

Although the personal comments included in the article regarding the dangers faced by code enforcement officers are valid, they do not necessarily align with those of CACEO. However, the comments do bring to light the underlying message and fact that more needs to be done to protect code enforcement officers.

“Cal-OSHA Reporter” spoke with CACEO President Darrell Revier on the subject.  However, Revier’s comments were not included in the article. CACEO has contacted “Cal-OSHA Reporter” requesting clarification and corrections be made that accurately reflect the position of the California Association of Code enforcement Officers on this important subject.

All questions regarding this information may be directed to CACEO President Darrell Revier via CACEO’s Executive Office, which can be reached at 916-492-2223.

 

Respectfully,

 

 

Darrell Revier CCEO

President

California Association of Code Enforcement Officers
