From the Leadership
- President’s Message - October 2021
September 10, 2021, marked the end of the first year of a two-year state legislative session. Needless to say, we were in the breach again. Police reform and public safety issues were a key focus among legislators, who introduced over 44 bills proposing new public safety and law enforcement policies.
- Vice President’s Message - October 2021
With the 2021 state legislative session over, we get to regroup and evaluate the outcome of another difficult year here in California. Each year, there seem to be more bills focused on law enforcement reform. Unfortunately, even bills introduced by legislators with good intentions can have negative impacts without input from law enforcement professionals. Fortunately, we have a strong coalition of law enforcement leaders and advocates who work tirelessly to make sure our concerns are addressed.
- Treasurer’s Message - October 2021
On Saturday, September 11, my youngest son and I were at LaTour Demonstration Forest hunting for deer and bear. Last Christmas, I decided to get into bow hunting and bought a bow for both my boys and myself. I did ask my wife if she also wanted to go hunting, and she said, “NO.” We outfitted ourselves and began honing our skills in archery. We all took hunter safety classes, purchased hunting licenses and started planning our hunting trips. I had hunted for years as a child and when I was in the Marine Corps, but I had never taken my two sons hunting because of sports and other numerous youthful activities.
