Law Enforcement Conference features impressive lineup

An excellent array of speakers and workshops is planned for the Ohio Attorney General’s Law Enforcement Conference, set for Oct. 25–26 at the Hyatt Regency Columbus.
A look at this year’s speakers:
  • FBI Special Agent George Piro leads the group that interrogates detainees thought to have information most likely to prevent terrorist attacks. In a previous FBI role, he spent seven months interrogating Saddam Hussein and other Iraqi figures.
  • Jason Thomas had just completed active military duty when the 9/11 terrorist attacks occurred. He donned his uniform and rushed to the World Trade Center, where he and another Marine dug through rubble to save two Port Authority police officers.
  • Jack Park is a noted football radio personality with the Ohio State Football Radio Network and Columbus station 97.1 FM. A former business executive, he also is a leadership development advisor and author.
With a theme of Protecting Ohio’s Children, the conference — organized by the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy — will feature 30 workshops on officer-involved shooting investigations, opiates, child sex trafficking, survival mindset training, responses to the Chardon school shooting and Muskingum County exotic animal release, and other topics.
The $75 registration fee covers the workshops and breakfast and lunch both days, including the Distinguished Law Enforcement Awards Luncheon. Registration will be available soon at www.OhioAttorney
