President's Welcome Message
Dear CATI Members,
I am proud and excited to be leading the CATI organization for the second time in my career. I would like to recognize and thank last year’s president, Bill Johnson, for his service and dedication to the CATI board. This past year, CATI has worked closely with the Colorado Auto Theft Prevention Authority to provide support for the continuation of funding to the Colorado State Legislature for the CATPA Bill. As a membership, we provided evidence of successes in combating motor vehicle crimes in the state of Colorado. I would like to thank Robert Force of the Colorado Auto Theft Prevention Authority for his continued support of our membership. As a result of our efforts and teamwork, on May 10th, 2018, Governor Hickenlooper signed the CATPA Bill which guarantees funding for the next eleven years. This funding is crucial to the continued prevention, public education, and prosecution of motor vehicle crimes. Our organization has come a long way and, along with CATPA, is recognized internationally for the cutting-edge public educational programs, operational standards, and training we provide to our membership and the public.
It’s my honor to be serving on this board with Beth Daniel (Wheat Ridge PD) who is in the position of Treasurer, Lisa Frank (Colorado State Patrol) who is in the position of Secretary, Sean Templeton (Lakewood PD) who is in the position of 1st Vice President and Mike Boggs (El Paso County Sheriff’s Department) who is in the position of 2nd Vice President. I would also like to recognize the hard work of Joni Tangeman (Arapahoe County), Scott Mehle (Westminster PD), Kim Johnson (State Farm) and Chris Tyus (Country Financial) over the years in support of the CATI board and membership.
CATI is a strong organization leading the way in motor vehicle crimes prevention and investigations. Other states are modeling their organizations after CATI and CATPA. This year, we will continue to identify and provide cutting-edge training for the state of Colorado and work with our partners CATPA, IAATI, CAAT, and ATICC to battle motor vehicle crimes. Through our initiatives, CATI has a bright future.
