PURPOSE <br /> <br />-being and success is of the utmost importance, <br />and contributes to a healthy work environment. By providing the Department <br />with early intervention risk indicators, the purpose of this system is to address <br />trends or patterns in undesirable behavior or poor performance before they <br />culminate into disciplinary matters. This policy establishes the responsibility, <br />authority, and parameters for the Department Personnel Early Intervention <br />System (PEIS) that provides for a systematic review of specific written materials <br />and incidents, and highlights personnel tendencies that may otherwise be <br />overlooked. <br /> <br />II. POLICY <br /> <br />A. The Surprise Police Department has a responsibility to its members and <br />the community to identify and assist members that demonstrate <br />symptoms of job stress and performance issues. Although no particular <br />set of criteria can regularly determine these traits, it is important that <br />certain "risk indicators" be reviewed routinely as possible indicators of <br />patterns of undesirable behavior or poor performance. <br /> <br />B. The policy of the Surprise Police Department is to: <br /> <br />1. Document all assertions alleging violations of misconduct, <br />performance standards, or attendance standards outlined by EPM <br />or SPD Policy by members of the Surprise Police Department. <br />2. Track and maintain all allegations in a Personnel Early Intervention <br />System. <br />3. Provide members with referral information to the Employee <br />Assistance Program (EAP) or other resources to address both <br />personal and professional issues, when appropriate. <br /> <br />
