This testimony compilation is from the May 17, 2017 hearing, "Challenges Facing Law Enforcement in the 21st Century," before the U.S. House Committee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations of the Committee on the Judiciary. From the opening statement of Bob Goodlatte: "Local law enforcement officers are the first line of defense in our neighborhoods and communities, making sure that our streets are safe, the most helpless in our communities are protected, and those who commit crimes are brought to justice. These brave men and women selflessly give their time and sometimes their lives to ensure the protection of their fellow citizens. Next week, as we mark Police Week, the House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing to highlight the vital role law enforcement plays in communities across our country and will look at the latest strategies and technologies available to our officers. It is our job as Members of Congress to ensure our police officers have resources at their disposal to continue serving to the best of their abilities." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: James P. McDonnell, Alonzo Thompson, Chuck Canterbury, and Art Acevedo.
