The National Conference on Public Employee Retirement Systems (NCPERS) released a study entitled “Economic Loss: The Hidden Cost of Prevailing Pension Reforms” that documents the costs to the economy if the public sector abandoned defined benefit (DB) pension plans; NAPO has pledged its support for Senate Bill 1311, the Abolish Human Trafficking Act, which would boost support for and protection of victims of human trafficking by increasing law enforcement resources, enhancing victims’ services, and increasing penalties in an effort to combat child sex trafficking, child pornography, sexual exploitation, and human trafficking; NAPO attended the House Judiciary Committee oversight hearing on state and local law enforcement grants within the Office of Justice Programs, Department of Justice (DOJ). One of the main concerns raised by the committee was that DOJ spending is not efficient, often duplicative, and needs reform. NAPO is working to get departments better equipment and training for their officers including full access to military surplus; Register now for NAPO’s 39th Annual Convention July 22-25, 2017, in New York City and/or become a NAPO event sponsor.
