Meeting Your Colleagues & Staying Current With Your Profession

Although keeping up with the Law Enforcement industry may seem to be just one more thing to add to your To-Do List, there are several important benefits. By keeping plugged in, you'll make better decisions about your career, both current and future. You'll be able to spot trends and opportunities early on, which can give you a competitive edge. This is especially important if you contribute to shaping your organization's strategy.

Secondly, keeping up-to-date with your industry is key for building relationships with the people who matter. By developing expertise in your industry, you'll earn the trust and respect of the people around you. From a leadership perspective, this is invaluable!

We are accepting only pre orders for the coin. Once we have enough orders to cover the total cost of production, at that time we will place the order. Each coin will cost $10 each.

If you are interested in purchasing the coin, there are two ways to do so:

1- You can purchase them in person at one of the meetings, or
