Who says you can't go home?


I recently returned from the 117th Annual Conference of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) held in Orlando, Florida. It was a tad surreal to be back with the association members and colleagues with whom I worked so closely for almost eight years when I called IACP my professional home prior to joining SAS. My time at IACP was dedicated to providing meaningful guidance to law enforcement leaders regarding policy and operational issues of import.

Albeit surreal, we picked up right where we left off – having meaningful discussions around big issues facing today’s police leaders. Budget crises, officer layoffs, morphing threats and disparate shiny-box systems are all part of the modern-day police leader’s lexicon. Doing more with less is no longer a catchy cliché but now a mantra and representative of the normal course of business.

While my scenery may be slightly different, I am dedicated to what I have always been dedicated: providing meaningful solutions for law enforcement; working to prevent unnecessary deaths and injuries; providing tools to safeguard officers; and, helping agencies strategically allocate their finite resources.

It’s good to be home.

  1. The IACP helped to develop and/or promote many tools currently used by law enforcement agencies. These tools include the use of fingerprints, Uniform Crime Reports and the Federal Bureau of Investigation's National Academy for state and local police.
