Measure Details — Official information about this measure

YES vote means

You want all new Airport peace officers to be enrolled in LAFPP, allow current Airport peace officers to transfer to LAFPP at their expense, and allow new Airport Police Chiefs the option to enroll in LACERS.

NO vote means

You do not want all new Airport peace officers to be enrolled in LAFPP, allow current Airport peace officers to transfer to LAFPP at their expense, and allow new Airport Police Chiefs the option to enroll in LACERS.

Summary

THE ISSUE:

Shall the Charter be amended to: (1) enroll new Airport peace officers into Tier 6 of the Los Angeles Fire and Police Pensions Plan (LAFPP); (2) allow current Airport peace officers to transfer into Tier 6 from the Los Angeles City Employees’ Retirement System (LACERS) at their own expense; and (3) permit new Airport Police Chiefs to enroll in LACERS?

 THE SITUATION:

 

Sworn peace officers who perform police and fire fighting duties for the Airport Department are currently members of LACERS, which provides retirement benefits primarily for civilian employees. LAFPP provides retirement benefits for sworn employees of the Los Angeles Police Department, Fire Department, and the Harbor Department. Tier 6 is the current LAFPP benefits plan provided to new employees. Both plans are funded from employee contributions, City contributions, and retirement plan investments.

Background

This measure would:

  • Enroll all Airport peace officers hired on or after January 7, 2018 into Tier 6 of LAFPP;
  • Allow those hired earlier to transfer into Tier 6 at their own expense; and
  • Allow new Airport Police Chiefs who are not already members of LAFPP to enroll in LACERS.
