Thomson Reuters, Proud and Longtime Sponsor of the MCSA
By Tom Palmer, Thomson Reuters
Last month in Nashville, TN, the Major County Sheriffs’ Association (MCSA) held their mid-year meetings at the Gaylord Opryland Resort. The MCSA is a professional law enforcement association of elected sheriffs representing counties or parishes with 500,000 populations or more. They are dedicated to preserving the highest integrity in law enforcement and the elected Office of the Sheriff. In their combined jurisdiction populations, the MCSA represents over 100 million Americans. The MCSA works to promote a greater understanding of law enforcement strategies to address future problems and identify law enforcement challenges facing the members of this association. They are also committed to advancing legislative issues that will enhance the safety of their communities. The MCSA is also affiliated with the National Executive Institute Association (NEIA), the National Narcotics Officers’ Associations’ Coalition (NNOAC), the Major Cities Chiefs Association (MCC) and the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP). All of these groups work together toward the betterment of law enforcement worldwide.
As a proud and longtime sponsor of the MCSA, Thomson Reuters attended the Nashville meetings and had the opportunity to learn from these influential leaders of law enforcement. In addition, all attendees welcomed guest speakers and experts who presented on such topics as Civil Rights Enforcement, County Terrorism Threat Status, Cyber Crime Threat and more. Presenters such as Assistant Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Louis Quijas, were among those speaking to the group. The MCSA believes that law enforcement and criminal justice organizations benefit greatly by having a forum in which to share ideas, concepts and resources. The MCSA facilitates that process by serving as a law enforcement information gathering resource.
Thomson Reuters and CLEAR are honored to be a partner with such an influential and important law enforcement association.
