June was an exciting end of the IN THE CLASSROOM year as we graduated many L.E.A.D. programs in over 11 states.
Tennessee intensified its L.E.A.D. efforts and we were proud to be a participant in the TNSRO Conference in Pigeon Forge Tennessee.
As always the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police Conference was held in Atlantic City. We were proud to have participated in the conference, as many L.E.A.D. family members were in attendance.
Congratulations to L.E.A.D. Advisory Board Member, Chief Gary Gubbei as he was sworn in as President of The New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police. !
We also are proud to have participated in the Night at the Races Event at the Meadowlands with Residential Home Funding. At the event, we launched our L.E.A.D. Associate Member Program. This outstanding opportunity will help L.E.A.D. chapters promote and grow their program to get much needed resources.
We also launched our ON THE STREET program with the Bergen County Prosecutors Office. Stay tuned for more information on this exciting opportunity.
Please have a healthy and fun summer. We look forward to another huge IN THE CLASSROOM year!
