Broadcaster Press 5 January 28, 2020 www.broadcasteronline.com DPS Secretary Price Appointed To Presidential Commission On Law Enforcement And The Administration Of Justice PIERRE, S.D. – South Dakota Department of Public Safety Cabinet Secretary Craig Price today was appointed by Attorney General William P. Barr to the Presidential Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice during a ceremony in Washington, D.C. “I am honored to be part of this commission, and I look forward to working on issues that impact law enforcement and the officers who work every day to protect our citizens,” Sec. Price said. “Law enforcement is a profession that is vital to our society.” Sec. Price is a life-long South Dakotan who began his law enforcement career in 1997. He has held positions of correctional officer, state trooper, special agent, supervisory special agent, assistant director of Criminal Investigation, and served as the 13th Superintendent of the South Dakota Highway Patrol until January, 2019. He was appointed DPS Cabinet Secretary by Gov. Kristi Noem. “Secretary Price is an exceptional choice for this commission,” said Gov. Noem. “He has made tremendous strides for law enforcement in our state, and I look forward to seeing the ways he will amplify our state’s public safety successes at the national level.” On October 28, 2019, President Donald J. Trump signed Executive Order No. 13896, authorizing and designating the Attorney General to create such a Commission that would explore modern issues affecting law enforcement that most impact the ability of American policing to reduce crime. The launch of the Commission also was announced at today’s ceremony. “There is no more noble and important profession than law enforcement. A free and safe society requires a trusted and capable police force to safeguard our rights to life and liberty,” said Attorney Barr. “But as criminal threats and social conditions have changed the responsibilities and roles of police officers, there is a need for a modern study of how law enforcement can best protect and serve American communities. This is why the President instructed me to establish this critical Commission, whose members truly reflect the best there is in law enforcement. Together, we will examine, discuss, and debate how justice is administered in the United States and uncover opportunities for progress, improvement, and innovation.” The Executive Order instructs the Commission to conduct its study by focusing on the law enforcement officers who are tasked with reducing crime on a daily basis. It also directs the Commission to research “important current issues facing law enforcement and the criminal justice system,” and recommends a variety of subjects for study, such as, but not limited to: The challenges to law enforcement associated with mental illness, homelessness, substance abuse, and other social factors that influence crime and strain criminal justice resources; The recruitment, hiring, training, and retention of law enforcement officers, including in rural and tribal communities; Refusals by State and local prosecutors to 1305 Office Employment 1360 SECRETARY Part-time position with electrical contracting company in Vermillion.
