Little Rock Conference

LITTLE ROCK, AR– The National Organization of Black Law Enforcement members are in Little Rock beginning Saturday. The event started with local children getting a history lesson on the first black deputy U.S. Marshal, Bass Reeves. “So when they become high school students and college graduates, they will have a better appreciation for law enforcement,” said national president Jiles Ship. The convention will also feature national speakers. Attorney General Eric Holder will be in town next week, as well as the parents of Treyvon Martin. “We want to let them know we are here to support you and follow the case all the way through through its entirety,” said Ship. Leaders say the Colorado shooting tragedy Friday is on the minds of each person here. There is even an Aurora officer staffing a booth at the recruiting fair. Even though she could not speak on camera, her colleagues are sending their thoughts of reflection. “Before every session, we stop and take a moment of silence in support of those individuals who are killed and hurt,” said Ship. By the end of the conference, leaders say they just want to train officers how to better serve their respective communities.
