What a great opportunity to learn from one another. Thanks Chief Schutz for helping to host this group of leaders from Indonesia.Yesterday we had the pleasure of meeting a team of investigators all the way from Indonesia! These women wanted to meet with other women in law enforcement during their visit to Oregon - Chief Schtuz and COS Quinsland (who managed to remember a little bit of her Indonesian language study) had the pleasure of showing them around the FGPD and introducing them to Forest Grove.
Terima Kasih temankita!
Special thanks to WorldOregon who arranged this awesome visit!

The Oregon Association Chiefs of Police was founded in 1953 with the intended purpose of enhancing the professionalism of Law Enforcement in Oregon. The founding Chiefs envisioned creating an association that would promote training and information sharing to facilitate the professional growth of Chiefs of Police, command staff, supervisors, line officers and support personnel. The Oregon Association Chiefs of Police rapidly became a leader both on the state and national level in the effort to enhance the profession.
