Posted by Mitchell Englander on January 23, 2015 at 12:00 PM
This week, I was honored to be reappointed to the National League of Cities (NLC) 2015 Public Safety and Crime Prevention Steering Committee. This committee is responsible for developing NLC federal policy positions on issues involving crime prevention, corrections, substance abuse, municipal fire policy, juvenile justice, disaster preparedness and relief, homeland security, domestic terrorism, court systems and gun control.
This committee has afforded many opportunities to partner with other municipalities for the benefit of all member cities. I was pleased to partner with Thousand Oaks City Councilman Joel Price, to initiate a national conversation on License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology and data retention. With the City of Los Angeles leading the country in the implementation of on-officer camera technology, I look forward to a collaboration that will enhance the ability of our public safety professionals to protect themselves as well as the communities they serve.
The National League of Cities is dedicated to helping city leaders build better communities. NLC is a resource and advocate for 19,000 cities, towns and villages, representing more than 218 million Americans. Click here for more information on NLC’s other committees and councils.
