HCSOCAAA Meeting & Presentation

November 2

Marty Braley, President HCSOCAAA will conduct a business meeting consisting of HCSOCAAA Board of Directors, members and Citizen Academy alumni. All alumni are welcome to attend!

Guest Speaker: Jeff Schemmer CMCP, ENP

Executive Director, Hamilton County Public Safety Communications


A tour of the Hamilton County 911 Communications Center is also a possibility.



As most of you know, Hamilton County Sheriff's Office Citizens Academy Alumni Association (HCSOCAAA) started as a stand-alone 501c3 corporation in 2013. At that time we were being introduced into a brand new world and no one knew how we would react. With that, the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office (HCSO) and the HCSOCAAA members were very cautious as we began this venture. Each elected Sheriff over the past decade has allowed HCSOCAAA to exist and operate based on its merit. HCSOCAAA has proven itself to the point where there is really no need for HCSOCAAA to be a separate organization, so the HCSO has invited us to become a part of the HCSO Community Foundation (HCSOCF).


The process of merging the two entities has been in the works for the past two years. There are many benefits to having HCSOCAAA become a formal subcommittee of the HCSOCF. There is a number of behind-the-scenes administrative work that goes on to maintain the HCSOCAAA organization, for example, maintaining a retail merchant’s license; federal and state taxes; being accountable to the Secretary of State, along with; retaining an attorney and accountant, just to name a few. With becoming a subcommittee of HCSOCF the aforementioned administrative duties along with the need to be self-funded or self-sufficient will no longer exist.


During the HCSOCAAA October 5, 2021 Annual Board/Member meeting, the members unanimously voted to ratify the Board’s decision to become a subcommittee of the HCSOCF. The HCSOCAAA will still have a Board of Directors that will operate independently but under the purview of the Sheriff’s Office. Most Alumni will not notice any difference in the functionality, vision, and goal of the HCSOCAAA. Our website, Amazon Smile, Social Media, logo, etc. will not be affected by the change. The HCSOCF wants us to continue doing what we do but obviously have a closer relationship with the HCSO which will promote benefits for HCSOCAAA.


The Chief Deputy of the Sheriff is the President of the HCSOCF and the HCSOCF board is made up of the Sheriff’s Office Captains. The Community Foundation will continue on an ongoing basis by newly appointed Chief Deputies and Captains as they are assigned. For the next two years, Marty Braley, President of the HCSOCAAA will also sit on the Board of Directors of the HCSOCF and thereafter, HCSOCAAA will have a Board Member representative assigned for two-year terms.


On October 12, 2021 HCSOCAAA received notification that the HCSOCF Board Members approved the amended bylaws and this approval officially makes HCSOCAAA a formal subcommittee of the HCSOCF. Both the HCSOCAAA and HCSOCF Board of Directors are excited about this partnership.


“I am excited about our continued partnership and the great things we will accomplish together for our community and employees.” - Chief Deputy, John Lowes


“I know that everybody is excited and looking forward to our continued and enhanced partnership. All of us throughout our HCSO community and the county will reap the benefits.” – HCSOCAAA President, Marty Braley


There are still a number of things to do to ensure a smooth transition, but great people from both organizations are working to make it happen. We look forward to continuing a strong, positive relationship with amplified support. Ultimately, the HCSOCAAA and its members will continue to honor others with their generous gifts knowing it’s not about what we are, it’s about what we do for others, because of who we are. 


Thank You,
