WASHINGTON, February 8-9, 2017 – The Major Cities Chiefs Association (MCCA) and Major County Sheriffs’ Association recently held their law enforcement policy conference in Washington, D.C.
Every two years, chiefs and sheriffs from major cities around the country gather in the nation’s capital to listen to speaker presentations and have roundtable discussions on key legislative issues, policy positions, training and other issues law enforcement face nationwide.
Lafayette Group supported the conference by providing legislative analysis, policy development, and communications and conference support. This included coordinating communications activities, such as sending invites to legislative speakers, organizing and producing event agendas, producing presentations on new and ongoing legislation, and producing event collateral. Lafayette Group also coordinated with the White House, Members of the House and Senate for their presentations to the chiefs and sheriffs from across the Nation.
This year’s conference featured distinguished speakers, including:
- President Donald J. Trump
- James Comey, Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation
- General John Kelly, Secretary of Homeland Security
- Key Members of Congress and the Senate who represent the Judiciary, Homeland Security, and Appropriations Committees
The President delivered his first major policy address on crime and followed the speech with three Executive Orders on violent crime and drug trafficking.
For almost 20 years, Lafayette Group has supported the Major Cities Chiefs Association, which represents the 68 largest law enforcement agencies in the U.S. and Canada, and has worked with Members of Congress and the Executive Branch to provide them with information on public safety issues in metropolitan cities, find legislative solutions that ensure the preservation of civil rights and liberties, and address the issues in a way that best serves the public.
