"The Major Cities Chiefs Association (MCC) [...] is a professional association of Chiefs and Sheriffs representing the largest cities in the United States and Canada. MCC membership is comprised of Chiefs and Sheriffs of the sixty-three largest law enforcement agencies in the United States and seven largest in Canada. They serve over 76.5 million people (68 US - 8.5 Canada) with a sworn workforce of 177,150 (159,300 US, 17,850 Canada) officers and non-sworn personnel. MCC was formed in the late 1960s to provide a forum for executives to share ideas, experiences and strategies for addressing the challenges of policing large urban communities. While the forum remains a primary purpose, as MCC has grown its purpose has expanded to include: To influence national public policy on law enforcement matters; To enhance the development of current and future leaders; [and] To encourage and sponsor research. MCC's U.S. members are very active in advisory roles to the Department of Justice, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, and are frequently invited to testify before Congress. The association is non-partisan, serving member departments and the citizens of both nations and all political parties. MCC strives to provide effective solutions to modern day urban problems, as well as prevent, protect against, and respond to crime and hostile acts launched against the U.S. or Canada. Navigate through our website to learn more about our member cities, our leadership, and our positions on modern law enforcement issues and best practices."
