Lafayette Group Supports Chiefs of Police

November 15, 2017

The Major Cities Chiefs Association (MCCA) held its annual conference on October 19-21, 2017 in Philadelphia, which occurred prior to the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) 2017 Conference. For almost 20 years, Lafayette Group has supported the MCCA, which represents the 69 largest law enforcement agencies in the U.S. and the 10 largest in Canada, and has worked with Members of Congress and the Executive Branch to provide them with information on public safety issues in metropolitan areas, find legislative and policy solutions that ensure the preservation of civil rights and liberties, and address the issues in a way that best serves the public.

The Annual Meeting is an opportunity for Chiefs from around the country to gather on key legislative issues, policy positions, training, and other issues law enforcement face nationwide. This year’s conference featured distinguished speakers, including: Jeff Sessions, Attorney General of the United States; Christopher Wray, Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation; David Glawe, Under Secretary, Department of Homeland Security, Office of Intelligence and Analysis; and Kristen Mahoney, Deputy Director for Policy, Bureau of Justice Assistance.

To support MCCA, Lafayette Group organized committee sessions and compiled briefing documents to guide a discussion on homeland security, violent crime, technology, and other public policy issues of importance to the Chiefs.

Technology Committee

Lafayette Group led on-site meeting support for the MCCA Technology Committee meeting. During the meeting, Lafayette Group captured key insights on topics such as: investigative technologies, the future of land mobile radio and mobile broadband, and lessons learned about critical technology infrastructure during the Texas and Florida hurricanes.

Intelligence Commanders

Intelligence commanders from MCCA and the Major County Sheriffs’ Association (MCSA) received a briefing from the FBI on the current threat environment and discussed closer collaboration between both organizations. The commanders exchanged information on current threats and common operational concerns.
