APROA regrets to inform our members of the recent passing of
six of our former colleagues.

The In Memoriam button on the Members' pages main menu is active.


ADVANCED NOTICE: Retiree range qualifications have been reduced to once per quarter for 2021. We have attached the schedules (on the Members page) so that you can begin to plan your qualification.


Reduced-cost group Rockies games for members will hopefully be a thing again next year.

We'll let you know if and when we are able get our reduced APROA rates for the coming Rockies season.


The APROA board met on January 31st, 2020, and the minutes have now been posted (on the Meetings & Minutes page). Meanwhile, persuant to the recent member-approved changes to our Charter and Bylaws, the board has now appointed two members to fill the vacant VP and Trustee 2 positions.

We welcome them and hope that you will do the same. The Governing Board page is now updated. Log in to see the details.

Also, we are actively seeking activities and benefits for members in 2021. Since 2020 was a rough year, we hope to make the next one a better year. Please give it a thought and offer a suggestion to any board member.


New activities for the new year will be planned soon, so please send your suggestions to the Governing Board for consideration.

You can contact us on our Facebook page as well.

Dear Aurora PD Retirees:

Aurora PD PIO McCoy and Aurora TV Channel 8 Producer Alexis Kikoen are producing a short history documentary about Aurora PD. Alexis wishes to interview five to ten retirees from various units, e.g., K-9, MCU, Patrol, CSI, Dispatch, who have stories to tell.

The interviews will be conducted at the new Channel 8 Studio in the City Building or in your home, if you wish, and there is enough room in the home for lighting, cameras, people, etc.

Alexis will ask questions about the changes you observed during your career - for better, for worst; why you joined APD; most interesting tasks; most challenging calls, and most rewarding experiences.

If you have APD memorabilia you are willing to share for the documentary, the items will add visual interest to the documentary.

(This is an evolving project, and dates have been... fuzzy. The project is still a "go" supposedly, but when things will get "going" is not yet firmed up. If you are interested in participating, please contact Kathy.)

Kathy Buttke
APROA Trustee
(for Kathy's contact information, log in or ask on our Facebook page)

Your Governing Board will be meeting soon to discuss the next year's activities.

Please send your suggestions to any board member. If you are interested in either of the two vacant board positions, let us know.

For those of you who don't know, I just published my debut psychological thriller novel, "Blood Letters." It's available to order in hard cover from most book stores at $29.95 and it's available on Kindle, too, for $9.99. I hope you'll check it out and if it's the kind of novel that interests you, give it a read.
