The National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives hosted its Region V Training Conference Saturday in Baton Rouge at the Renaissance Hotel.
Mayor President Sharon Weston Broome said, “The truth is organizations like NOBLE allow me to reiterate to my fellow citizens that most of our law enforcement officers are here for the people. For all the people.”
The organization has been at the forefront of providing solutions to law enforcement issues, and celebrates the services of African American officers who put their lives on the line everyday to serve their communities.
James Jefferson with Louisiana State Police said, “We know from recent events not just in Baton Rouge but across the nation that it is some issues between the police and the community. If we have any hope to rectify those issues, we first have to recognize that it is an issues.”
NOBLE has prided itself for giving service by bridging the gap between police and communities across the nation.
“This has been a very well accepted organization in law enforcement. Really representing those African American, black law enforcement leaders to express their positions in law enforcement which is critical for us particularly now at this time,” said District Attorney Hillar Moore.
