Property Appraisal Program

In order to ensure that Member buildings are properly valued, PEP has partnered with a property appraisal firm to conduct appraisals on qualified and scheduled buildings over a five-year period. The details of the program are as follows:
                     
 1. All buildings scheduled at $100,000 or more will be appraised
 2. If a Member does not have a building scheduled at $100,000, the building with the highest value will be appraised
 3. Members will receive a copy of all appraisals.
Members will receive an email advising them of their upcoming appraisal so that the appointment may be conveniently scheduled. Please note this service is being provided as a benefit of PEP membership. For more information, please click here. 

Law Enforcement Resources

PEP has partnered with a law enforcement vendor, Legal & Liability Risk Management Institute (LLRMI), to provide policies and online training that are compliant with both federal law and the laws of the State of Ohio and the Ohio Collaborative Community-Police Advisory Board. 

The Policy Learning Library contains more than 75 sample policies and forms that are available for downloading and customization.  All users will be notified in the event of a change to a policy or form so that members will always have access to current policies and forms. 
 
In addition to the policies and forms, more than 150 short, relevant online training modules are also available in the Online Training Learning Library for viewing.  Officers can train at their convenience, on topics relevant to law enforcement, and Chiefs will be able to access the data relative to officer training.
 
24/7 online technical support is available through the vendor.
