Division of Adult Parole Operations (DAPO) recently attended the National Asian Peace Officer Association (NAPOA) Annual Training Symposium and Exposition in San Diego.
Co-hosted by the association and San Diego Police Department, the symposium ran from July 31 through Aug. 4.
The national association serves as the voice of over 3,000 Asian American and Pacific Islander law enforcement officers and special agents in 23 local chapters across the country.
The group’s mission is to promote diversity within the law enforcement community and open doors for advancement through leadership training, education, and mentorship.
The annual event provides networking with peers from several law enforcement agencies throughout the country.
The DAPO agents participated in various training sessions, including:
- Combating Law Enforcement Suicide
- Interviewing Preparation
- Active Shooter Debriefing/Tactics
- Women in Law Enforcement
- and Mentoring Program/Career Development.
In addition to training, DAPO agents also connected with federal, state, and local agencies. They also met DAPO co-workers from different parts of the state.
