Greetings CALEA Attendees and families!


Greetings CALEA Attendees and families!

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2017 Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement (CALEA) Summer Conference.  The State of Rhode Island is honored that Providence was chosen as the site for this year’s summer conference and the Rhode Island State Police is proud to be your host.  

During this conference, you will have the opportunity to attend various workshops on current issues and future trends, as well as view the latest technological advances within our profession.  Equally important, there will be many opportunities to network with peers, key government officials and subject experts. 

We have worked vigorously with Rhode Island Police Accreditation Coalition agencies to make this a memorable and meaningful conference.  I invite you to participate in the many planned activities that have been put together for you and your families.  The “Ocean State” boasts miles of gorgeous coastline and cities and towns brimming with history so please explore and discover Rhode Island’s famed history, arts, beaches and cuisine.  Please visit the conference website for more information.

On behalf of the men and women of the Rhode Island State Police, we wish you a productive conference and hope you enjoy your stay in this “little” State we call home.


Ann C. Assumpico
