Many of us who served in APD during the ’80’s and ‘90s remember Winnie Moyer as that good-natured, soft-spoken and always wide-smiling custodial member of the housekeeping staff. Winnie worked primarily at “The Main” headquarters of APD and retired in 1999, but she is still part of the APD family.
Winnie receives a small pension, but is in need of some assistance with her residence, which is beyond repair and in dire need of replacement.
The APROA has partnered with the APA and the Austin Cops for Charities to raise funds to assist Winnie in obtaing a livable residential structure.
Generic templates for TEXAS wills are now available on the APROA website.

The renovations for the APD Range have been completed and the range is now open for business. Please call the range at (512) 974-6955 and schedule a time BEFORE going to the range. (They have cadet and in-service training that takes priority.)
As of right now if you are shooting a 9mm, .40, .45, or .38 the range can provide the ammo. Any other caliber will have to be provided by the retiree(s). This might change as APD transitions over to the M&P 40 caliber pistol. It is still not clear whether the Department will still purchase the other calibers.
All of the documents and instructions are posted in the FIREARMS INFORMATION section of the websiste.
New Documents and Procedures have been instituted for obtaining the approval to carry a concealed weapon as a retired peace officer.

At our September meeting Dr. Cook addressed the membership in regards to a possible claim you may have due to hearing loss. The years of sirens, gunfire and radios did take a toll on the hearing of many officers and you may have a claim.
Dr. Cook’s office indicated officers could come in for a free exam. For more information or an appointment contact Laurie Cook at (512) 260-2665.
Should the test indicate a hearing loss that could be job related, you will need to contact the City of Austin for claim information. Click HERE for more information on filing a claim.
Dues are now being collected. Dues are $35.00 per year and are a small price to pay to ensure that you have a voice at City Hall and the Texas Legislature to represent YOUR interests as a retired officer.
