State Association of Chiefs of Police midyear meeting focuses on critical issues facing law enforcement community
Two members of Somerset Police Department’s leadership team traveled to the nation’s capital last week to discuss critical issues facing the law enforcement community with their colleagues and share those concerns with legislators.
Chief William Hunt and Assistant Chief Josh Wesley attended the State Association of Chiefs of Police Midyear Conference March 22-24, which, in addition to evaluating critical issues, provided an opportunity to identify best practices and enhance relationships with fellow officers. Kentucky Association of Chiefs of Police Director Shawn Butler also attended.
Conference topics included health and wellness, recruitment and retention, and national trends in law enforcement. Hunt, Wesley and Butler then met with Congressman Hal Rogers, U.S. Representative of the 5th District of Kentucky — which includes Somerset — about law enforcement needs and concerns across the state as well as grant opportunities within Pulaski County.
