Blue View by the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP)

The Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) is the component of the U.S. Department of Justice responsible for advancing the practice of community policing by the nation's State, local, territorial, and tribal law enforcement agencies through information and grant resources.

The work of the COPS Office is vital to State and local law enforcement agencies and, by extension, to the safety of our communities. The COPS Office is the cornerstone of our national policing strategy—community-oriented policing. The hiring program, its work on collaborative reform, and efforts to improve officer safety and wellness is critical, especially at this time.

On this episode of the Blue View Podcast, National President Patrick Yoes sits down with Hugh Clements, the Director of the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) to discuss the current state of policing, the resources the COPS Office provides, as well as the partnership the two organizations have.

Hugh has extensive experience in virtually every aspect of policing and law enforcement, a career which began in 1985 with the Providence Police Department as a patrol officer and culminated with him becoming the agency’s chief in 2012. Hugh was also a long-time member of the FOP’s National Board of Trustees. He is a decorated officer and is a nationally recognized expert and speaker on law enforcement trends.
