Chief Kroeker attends terrorism conference in Israel

January 03, 2003 00:00

  

On Thursday, January 9, 2003, Portland Police Chief Mark A. Kroeker will leave Portland and travel to Israel joining several law enforcement leaders from throughout North America in the first ever conference on "Law Enforcement in the Era of Global Terror." Chief Kroeker will travel to Israel as a guest of the event organizers. While en-route to Israel, Chief Kroeker will join police chiefs from several large metropolitan areas throughout the United States for a terrorism meeting in Washington D.C.

The major goal of this conference is to exchange and share information and to gain a better understanding of the current problems facing law enforcement agencies. Conference attendee's will also participate in a simulated terrorism attack.

In anticipation of this conference, on Tuesday, January 7, 2003, at 11:00 a.m., Chief Kroeker will meet with members of the Jewish and Muslim communities, along with the Co-Chairs of the Chief's Forum, to obtain public input and brief community leaders on his expectations for this seminar. The meeting will take place in the Chief's Conference Room on the 15th Floor of the Justice Center. The media is invited to attend.
