The Hispanic American Police Command Officers Association (HAPCOA) was invited to provide testimony to the President's Task Force on 21st Century Policing (Task Force).  This time HAPCOA provided testimony in support of the fourth public listening session on the topic of Community Policing and Crime Prevention.

The Task Force, established by an executive order signed by President Barack Obama on December 18, 2014, is charged with identifying ways to strengthen public trust and foster strong relationships between local law enforcement and the communities that they protect while also promoting effective crime reduction.  HAPCOA will also address these timely issues at its 42nd Annual National Law Enforcement Training Symposium in San Antonio, TX in November 2015.

The Community Policing and Crime Prevention listening session was held in Phoenix, AZ on Friday, February 13, 2015 at the Phoenix Convention Center.

Here is the testimony submitted for publication by HAPCOA National President Don Tijernia:
