Henderson, Nev. – Henderson Police Chief Patrick E. Moers will meet this week with White House officials and law enforcement leaders from across the country to discuss the national police initiative called 21st Century Policing.
On Wednesday, July 6, senior administration officials will brainstorm with police executives on ideas about how to enhance public trust and confidence in the justice system while maintaining public safety.
“I am honored to be a part of this important law enforcement initiative,” said Chief Patrick Moers. “I look forward to incorporating the new ideas being discussed into improving our services to the Henderson community.”
On December 18, 2014, President Barack Obama signed an Executive Order establishing the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing. Twenty-first Century Policing focuses on six pillars: Building trust and legitimacy, policy and oversight, technology and social media, community policing and crime reduction, training and education, and officer wellness and safety.
