MAPLE’s leadership is comprised of current, former and retired police officers and criminal justice educators. Combined they bring a tremendous amount of experience and expertise to the police reform discussion. Their backgrounds offer the organization significant expertise in its efforts to improve the police service. They understand through personal experience, what has worked and what has not worked. The Board of Directors is a good reflection of the membership itself, giving strong evidence that MAPLE is not only willing, but able to tackle the significant challenges facing American policing today.
