U.S. Conference of Mayors President Miami Mayor Manny Diaz to Kick Off Mayor’s ’08 Action Forums in Philadelphia


    WASHINGTON, Aug. 4 /EMWNews/ -- U.S. Conference of Mayors

President Miami Mayor Manny Diaz, along with Host Philadelphia Mayor

Michael Nutter, Miami Police Chief and Police Executive Research Forum

President John Timoney, and USCM CEO and Executive Director Tom Cochran,

will kick off the Mayors '08 Action Forums on crime in Philadelphia on

Wednesday, August 6th. Delaware Senator Joe Biden will join the mayors and

police chiefs for the luncheon portion of the meeting and the press

conference at 12 Noon.

    This forum will bring together mayors and police chiefs from around the

country to work on a new agenda to advance community policing, provide

police officers with updated technology, and create a plan that will

involve city residents in reducing neighborhood violence and street crime.

The recommendations that come out of the forum will be presented to the

next President of the United States during the critical first 100 days of

the new administration.

    According to a Zogby poll released by the mayors' organization earlier

this year, American people today are more concerned about street crime and

neighborhood criminals than international terrorists. Without a Federal

partnership that provides resources, personnel and technological support,

current crime statistics are unlikely to change.

    Mayor Diaz, the newly-elected President of the U.S. Conference of

Mayors, the nation's premiere bipartisan lobbying organization for the

America's cities and metropolitan areas believes, "National problems demand

national investments."
