July 11, 2016

(Washington, DC)  The Hispanic American Police Command Officers Association (HAPCOA) was called upon on recently to provide public commentary on national Spanish language television news stations regarding the situations in Milwaukee and Baton Rouge and then again to provide post Dallas commentary regarding the shooting of 5 brave Police Officers.

HAPCOA’s Executive Director Anthony Chapa provided commentary. Interviews were conducted in Spanish with correspondents from both TeleMundo and Univision (two interviews).

HAPCOA continues to be the “go-to” organization for commentary and presentations regarding the national Hispanic law enforcement perspective on issues to include community policing, command level training, evolving technology, diversity in policing and the overall future of law enforcement.  HAPCOA National Capitol Region Chapter members continue to be invited to the White House to discuss issues regarding the Presidents Task Force on 21st Century Policing. 

Executive Director Chapa was also recently invited to provide a formal presentation at St. Mary’s University before its 2016 Upward Bound summer class and also to address a recent FBI National Academy Alumni Regional Training luncheon at Trinity University both held in San Antonio.
