A Network of Support for Lasting Change

Coming Up

June 17, 2021 | 2pm Eastern

Join us for this virtual event. This year has brought an increased number of protests, riots, and violence, making the role that law enforcement has within our communities more relevant than ever before. Each day, leaders from numerous departments, agencies, universities, organizations, and associations across the country work together to learn, lead, and listen for ways to improve policing and strengthen communities.

This program will aim to bridge some of those communication gaps by introducing our audience to key supporters from the law enforcement community who will share examples of how they and their organizations contribute to creating safer communities.
