I hope everyone is staying healthy and well during these unprecedented times. These are certainly challenging times for all Public Safety Officers. As a result of the pandemic, all Police Week activities have been cancelled, postponing the National Conference of Law Enforcement Emerald Societies’ National Convention. Many of our activities will be postponed until the Fall Business Meeting in Arizona.
In regards to the election of the new Executive Board members, all positions were uncontested. As of May 15, 2020, the new Executive Board will be as follows:

3rd Vice President Thomas Cody – Illinois PES

I would like to thank the outgoing Executive Board and Committee members for their hard work and a job well done. Additionally, I would like to thank the Board of Directors and the membership of this organization for the twenty-four good years that I spent as a member of the Executive Board. Especially, the last three years as the president which certainly has been a high point in my law enforcement career.
