Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts and Chief Deputy Chris Hoy traveled to Washington D.C for the White House 21st Century Policing Briefing on July 22. Sheriff Roberts and other law enforcement leaders from across the United States are gathering to discuss the future of policing.

"It's a great honor to meet with law enforcement professionals from around the country to discuss how to strengthen community policing and build trust with the communities we serve," said Sheriff Craig Roberts.

On December 18, 2014, President Barack Obama signed an executive order establishing the Task Force on 21st Century Policing. This briefing is focused on discussion around their findings and recommendations. Some of the topics of discussion are officer safety, building trust and legitimacy, technology and social media, and officer training and education.

The Final Report of the President's Task Force on 21st Century Policing is available online here.
