WASHINGTON D.C. – Today I was honored, along with a number of other Florida Sheriffs and Chiefs of Police, to be present when our President, Donald Trump, spoke to Sheriffs and Chiefs of Police from around our country who were in attendance during the joint Major County Sheriff’s Association / Major Cities Chief’s Association that was held in our nation’s capital this week.
President Trump’s message was a call to action and the start of a national partnership for Law and Order in our country to fight crime, address mental health issues and battle the continuing plague of drug issues.
During the presentation, President Trump committed resources and support from the White House to assist Law Enforcement Officers and Public Safety members ensuring that we stand ready to protect our citizens, our communities and our country.
Being a member of the Major County Sheriff’s Association allows me to be actively engaged in the development of effective and efficient strategies and principals for the Association in the area of Communication, Advocacy, Research, and Education.
The Association is also an excellent opportunity for members to share best practice techniques with some of our nation’s premier Law Enforcement Leaders and Organizations.
