Hospitality Room every evening Sponsored by Illinois Railroad Association Chiefs of Police

Keynote speaker:

Lt. Col. David Grossman, author of On Killing

Topic: "The Bullet Proof Mind"

 Police officers and soldiers know all about maintaining physical readiness, but it is the mind that must first be properly prepared, the mind that controls the hands, arms, eyes, and ears. From Lt. Col. Grossman, a former Army Ranger and an expert in the field of human aggression and the roots of violence and violent crime, you’ll learn how the body responds to lethal combat, what happens to your blood flow, your muscles, your judgment, memory, vision, and hearing when someone is trying to kill you or attack you. You’ll learn how to keep going and how to prepare your mind for survival instead of defeat.

PLUS: Kane County's Joe McMahon will speak about the Jason Van Dyke Trial

NAACP, ILACP announce
10 historic Shared Principles;
how to adopt them as your own

The Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police (ILACP) and the Illinois NAACP State Conference announced an affirmation of 10 Shared Principles that are designed to bridge the gap of mistrust between police and communities of color. The first of its kind in our nation’s history, the March 22, 2018, agreement between an NAACP state conference and a statewide law enforcement agency identifies the common ground between local law enforcement and communities of color in their commitment to safe communities.

ILACP President Brian Fengel encourages all police departments to adopt these principles as your own and have your department's name added to the list on our website.
