July 12, 2016

Montgomery County Police Chief J. Thomas Manger met with President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden at the White House yesterday, July 11, in the wake of the killing of five police officers in Dallas last Thursday, according to a statement from the White House Office of the Press Secretary.

   While specifics of the meeting were not released, the statement said, “The President and Vice President met in the Roosevelt Room with law enforcement leaders who represent chiefs, sheriffs and rank and file officers across the country.”

   “They thanked the leaders for their service and expressed condolences for their colleagues lost in the line of duty,” said the White House statement. “The President and Vice President wanted to hear directly from law enforcement officials about their ideas on best practices for building trust between law enforcement and the communities they serve. They discussed the implementation of the reforms and recommendations laid out by the 21st Century Policing Task Force. They also talked about ways to support officer training in safely deescalating confrontations and systems to ensure the safety and wellness of those who protect all of us.”

   Manger was among the five members of the law enforcement community at the meeting. He is the President of the Major Cities Chiefs Police Association. Also attending the meeting, according to the White House were; Sheriff Mike Chapman, Loudon County, VA, Major Counties Sheriffs’ Association; Chief Terry Cunningham, President, International Association of Chiefs of Police; William Johnson, Executive Director, National Association of Police Organizations; Jim Pasco, Executive Director, Fraternal Order of Police; Gregory A. Thomas, National President, National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives; Jonathan Thompson, Executive Director, National Sheriffs' Association; and Tom Wilson, Director of Applied Research, Police Executive Research Forum. Also at the meeting were, Neil Eggleston, Assistant to the President and Counsel to the President and Cecilia Muñoz, Assistant to the President and Director of the Domestic Policy Council.

   “The President recognized the importance of their continued partnership and emphasized his commitment to finding solutions to enhance public safety and reduce tensions between officers and the communities they serve. The Vice President committed to reconvening law enforcement and community leaders for ongoing consultation,” according the White House statement.
