Good morning. As always, it is good to be here.
I have been coming to the IACP since 2001. Year after year, I look out at all of you, and I ask myself the same question. Could I handle the challenges you face, day after day? Could I do the jobs you do with the same success? And the answer is no, for one simple reason: I could never bring myself to wear anything but a white shirt.
Your former president, Ron Ruecker, is now serving as our Director of Law Enforcement, and he is doing a great job. Several weeks ago, I asked Ron if he knew any good jokes to warm up the crowd. He suggested self-deprecating humor. And I said, “Sounds great. What are my weak points?” And Ron said, “Well, sir, you’re only speaking for 15 minutes…so let’s just hit the highlights.” I am sure that Ron will enjoy his new post in Yemen.
