The University of San Francisco (USF), in partnership with the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD), will host the 18th Annual Law Enforcement Leadership Symposium Monday and Tuesday, Jan. 7-8. Narcotics: Examining Leadership Strategies is the theme of this timely event, addressing the crippling combination of drugs and crime in our communities.
This year's topic of narcotics is a highly contemporary issue that affects our national crime rate, our prison population, and fuels gangs and cartels in our society, said Anthony Ribera, director of the International Institute of Criminal Justice Leadership at USF. Our attendees will be exposed to the magnitude of the problem, effective strategies used by other cities around the nation, and an honest discussion about the core issues law enforcement must grapple with in order to better combat narcotics-related crime.
The two-day forum will include panel discussions, individual presentations from nationally recognized experts, and open forums. San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee and Chief of Police Greg Suhr will give opening remarks on Monday morning at 8:30 a.m.
