Leadership is not always the easiest position to hold. One must be bound together by grit & determination - to make the tough decisions - overflowing with compassion & understanding - to fairly meet the needs of others - and reflect the highest moral and ethical virtues, ensuring the next generation is led by example. As the Oregon Association Chiefs of Police celebrates 71 years as an association, we would like to thank those leaders who have laid the foundation - and have continued to build upon it, for decades. Their early beginnings (and your continued effort) to work together in a multitude of facets, ensure our communities are growing and continually strengthened.(We'd love to see any images you have to share as well.)
