This report highlights contemporary policing issues discussed during a meeting of 40 rank-and-file law enforcement officers.

The participants were officers, deputies and troopers from a wide range of law enforcement agencies. The meeting in August 2017 provided insights and recommendations for ways in which officers, law enforcement leaders, and communities can work together to reduce crime — in particular illegal immigration, drug trafficking and violent crime. They also discussed the need to support officer morale, safety and wellness, and explored emerging issues such as the growing opioid epidemic.
