Dear Police and Law Enforcement Executive,

The Annual International Conference for Police & Law Enforcement Executives was held in Phoenix, Arizona on April 27 to 29, 2014 with the theme being Expect the Unexpected...It's Not a Matter of If. The conference was hosted by Chief Garcia of the Phoenix Police Department, Chief Milstead of the Mesa Police Department and Chief Villaseñor of the Tucson Police Department.

As Police & Law Enforcement Executives are increasingly being scrutinized for their department's results, actions and effectiveness, there is no longer the luxury of having unlimited budgets, resources or unwavering public confidence. Expect the Unexpected was about defining how police services are measured by stakeholders, internally and externally. In unpredictable and uncertain times, police services must be a constant source in providing public confidence while continually improving the level of performance. Expect the Unexpected has had significant impact on executive careers and departments that fail to prepare suffer the unenviable consequence.

The following international executives gathered for dynamic, candid and open discussions, sharing their experiences with living "the unexpected."
