About the event

Cost: $100


GSPCC is very excited to launch our inaugural Law Enforcement Leadership Symposium. The leadership symposium’s overarching theme is LEADING THROUGH ADVERSITY. Our mission is to gather current and future law enforcement leaders to learn from experienced leaders in how they navigated adversity by utilizing sound leadership strategies. This one-day event will feature a diverse array of speakers who have demonstrated leadership through difficult conditions and were successful on the other side.

Speakers: Bill Hart, Retired Chief of Police, Londonderry, NH Helen Hanks, NH Commissioner of the Dept. of Corrections Justin McKinney, Comedian Steve Murphy & Javier Peña – Retired DEA and Authors of: Manhunters: How We Took Down Pablo Escobar

Keynote Speakers: Agents Javier Peña and Steve Murphy are retired from the Drug Enforcement Administration. Living examples of leading through adversity, Agents Peña and Murphy risked their lives to help the Columbian government pursue and ultimately take down Pablo Escobar. Agents Murphy and Peña were assigned to the Bloque de Búsqueda, the joint Colombian-U.S. taskforce created to end Escobar’s reign of terror. For eighteen months, between July 1992 and December 1993, Steve and Javier lived and worked beside Colombian authorities, finding themselves in the crosshairs of sicarios targeting them for the $300,000 bounty Escobar placed on each of their heads.

Undeterred, they risked the dangers, relentlessly and ruthlessly separating the drug lord from his resources and allies, and tearing apart his empire, leaving him underground and on the run from enemies on both sides of the law. Agents Peña and Murphy will take you on their journey and explain how they used sound leadership tactics to work with Columbian officials and ultimately bring justice for the Columbian people.
