Atlanta Police Chief Elected to Major Cities Chiefs Association National Board

 

The Atlanta Police Department is pleased to announce that Chief George N. Turner has been elected to the position of 2nd Vice President on the Major Cities Chiefs Association (MCCA) Executive Board.  Chief Turner will serve in this post until December 2017.

 

“I am honored and humbled to be on the Executive Board of the Major Cities Chiefs Association,” said Chief George N. Turner. “The conversations and trainings that are held at Major Cities Chief’s meetings are helping to shape police policy by bringing together some of the most innovative and forward thinking chiefs of our nation,”

 

The Major Cities Chiefs Association (MCCA) is a professional organization of 70 police executives representing the largest cities in the United States and Canada.  MCCA provides a unique forum for urban police, sheriffs and other law enforcement chief executives to discuss common problems, to share information and to create problem-solving strategies. MCCA articulates the public safety needs of large cities in the formulation of criminal justice policy.

 

Through the organization’s regular meetings and its relationship with the National Executive Institute and the International Association of Chiefs of Police, members of the Major Cities Chiefs Association receive up-to-date information on the latest topics in the fields of policing, executive leadership and criminal justice legislation.  The Major Cities Chiefs Association in conjunction with the FBI, the National Executive Institute and other criminal justice organizations, conduct occasional studies on issues of national concern.
