We’ll discuss upcoming campaign endorsements, 2025 session priorities, and host a featured training on use of force incidents and the ongoing BWC policy/contract issues with guest speakers Traci Anderson and Mark Makler, attorneys at Public Safety Labor Group.

A quick and informative meeting to attend with your fellow colleagues from around the state.
