OC Sheriff Hutchens hosts MCSA and Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch

Posted by CotoBloggz

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA - Orange County Sheriff Hutchens, President of  the Major County Sheriffs’ Association (MCSA) began the Winter Meeting at the JW Marriott Hotel, in Washington, D.C.   with a moment of silence  in honor of law enforcement officials killed in the line of duty, including Harford County, Maryland Senior Sheriff’s Deputies Mark Logsdon and Patrick Dailey, who were killed yesterday. 

According to its website, the The MCSA is a professional law enforcement association of elected sheriffs representing counties or parishes with 500,000 population or more,  dedicated to preserving the highest integrity in law enforcement and the elected Office of the Sheriff with membership representing over 100 million Americans.

Attorney General Lynch remarked that yesterday’s tragic events highlighted the dangers public safety officers face every day – and the courage and commitment they routinely demonstrate in the fulfilment of their duties.  She thanked the sheriffs and their deputies for their hard work, acknowledging the difficulty of their jobs and the immense sacrifices they have made for the people they serve.  All this in sharp contrast to what her  DOJ is doing in Furguson, Missouri 
During the meeting, Attorney General Lynch also discussed challenges facing law enforcement officials today, such as countering violent extremism, treatment of mental health issues, and challenges presented by technology.
