California Police Chief- Fall 2013 - Page 4

WELCOME FROM CHIEF BOYD Dear CPCA Members: Welcome to the Spring 2014 edition of our magazine, California Police Chief. This is the second edition of our rebranded and reengineered magazine designed to keep you up-to-date on relevant, innovative programs as well as association activities. Our magazine highlights some of the great successes our members have had with new programs that can serve to inspire other agencies. Cal Chiefs is in the middle of a challenging legislative year. We are sponsoring four bills and have several other legislative priorities. Fortunately, we have a very strong Legislative Team including an involved Legislative Committee that continues to stay well-engaged at the Capitol. Highlights of our recent efforts are included in our “Cal Chiefs at the Capitol” column. Our 37th Annual Training Symposium in Monterey was very successful and featured some outstanding speakers and workshops; a summary is included in this issue. Also featured in this edition are articles by our Strategic Partners and a listing of our partners and Corporate Circle Members. We hope you enjoy this second issue of our newly revised magazine and encourage you to follow Cal Chiefs on Facebook and Twitter; your feedback is always welcome. Thank you for the critical role you play in making Cal Chiefs the voice of and resource of choice for California’s municipal police chiefs. Sincerely, Christopher W. Boyd, President California Police Chiefs Association 4 California Police Chief | www.californiapolicechiefs.org
