Todd Foreman’s role as ISRI’s director of law enforcement outreach focuses on building law enforcement partnerships across the country, which gives ISRI a unique opportunity to become a resource in metals theft prevention. In June, Todd represented ISRI at the National Sheriff’s Association (NSA) Annual Conference in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he shared ISRI tools and strategies to curb metals theft, as well as on-site, ISRI local law enforcement programs. More than 1,100 law enforcement and staff members attended the NSA annual summer conference.
ISRI members play an important role in Todd’s national and local work. Members of ISRI’s Michigan Chapter who were on-hand to meet with attendees included Greg Brown with Benlee, Joel Conn with Friedland Industries, Inc. and Jeff Crowe with Schupan & Sons, Inc.
“When I represent ISRI at law enforcement meetings, it’s beneficial for our local members to be engaged, as well,” said Todd. “Interacting with ISRI members helps us forge those local law enforcement relationships and share ISRI resources by offering a perspective on the industry from its leaders.”
As part of Todd’s presence at law enforcement events across the country, he schedules visits with local recyclers on-site at facilities. While in the Grand Rapids area, Todd visited Beacon Recycling, Padnos and Shroyer Auto Parts where he discussed local issues and made arrangements to return for local law enforcement training.
Todd’s next event is the FBI National Academy Associates taking place July 28-Aug. 2 in Denver, Colorado.
