WEBINAR: The New York State Professional Policing Act;
Is your agency prepared?
June 24, 1:00 PM EST

Friday June 24th, 2022 at 1:00 pm Lexipol in partnership with the New York State Association of Chiefs of Police will present a webinar entitled The New York State Professional Policing Act; Is your agency prepared? This webinar is presented free of charge, please register at the following link;.

The New York Professional Policing Act (PPA) of 2021 has placed an unprecedented requirement on all police agencies – comply with the PPA or face decertification. Mandated hiring standards and practices as well as required decertification reporting are already in effect. Are your policies and practices updated to reflect these requirements?

Every law enforcement agency should be committed to hiring and retaining members who can be properly entrusted with the role of protecting their community, and the PPA supports this goal. Join us to learn more about the legislation and other strategies your agency should explore to reduce risk associated with hiring.

You’ll Learn:

  • The requirements of the PPA and key dates for compliance reporting
  • Why the PPA mandates represent sound hiring and retention practices
  • Additional issues pertaining to hiring and retention—beyond the PPA—that agencies must address to reduce risk and better serve the community
  • An overview of the Governor’s recent executive order on terrorism and the recent updates to the Extreme Risk Protection Order legislation

The New York State Association of Chiefs of Police Annual Conference has been our premier training event since 1902, bringing together like-minded leaders representing jurisdictions of all sizes.

The rich traditions of our conference draw police leaders who are intent on learning, sharing, and shaping our proud profession. Esteemed speakers will be discussing a variety of issues, particularly, events from the past year which continue to impact the way we perform our jobs. Presentations will also cover areas of officer wellness, professional development, and leadership. We are joined by an array of exhibitors showcasing the latest in technology, products and services.

This year's conference will be held July 24th - July 27th, 2022. Events include the President's Reception, the popular Lake George Dinner Cruise on the Lac du Saint Sacrement, and the installation dinner on a new night this year. 

New this year—dual tracks! Throughout the conference our schedule will include two simultaneous educational platforms: our Traditional Track which will feature topics on contemporary issues in law enforcement; and our new Police Executive Training Track, specifically developed for new and aspiring police leaders. This new track has been developed based on feedback from our peers who have been seeking relevant training for today’s police executives that is often difficult if not impossible to find. Regardless of the track for which you register, attendees may float between tracks in the event they want to attend a topic that is of interest to them. This flexibility affords an even better educational experience for all of our registrants.

Join us at The Historic Queensbury Hotel in Glens Falls—located in the beautiful Lake George-Adirondack Region of New York. The location and facilities provide an excellent atmosphere for learning and networking. Details inside.
