Addressing Major Crime and National Security Issues
The Milstein Criminal Justice Policy Forum of the Citizens Crime Commission of New York
By the start of the new millennium, the shock of 9/11 signaled new, global threats that re-ordered law enforcement priorities. The Milsteins altered their priorities as well.
In 2002, the Milstein Criminal Justice Policy Forum replaced the Milstein Lecture and Award, featuring speakers such as: FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III, Under Secretary of Homeland Security for Border and Transportation and Security Asa Hutchinson, and U.S. Senator Carl Levin, U.S. Court of Appeals Chief Judge John Walker.
Four years later, the focus of the Milstein Criminal Justice Policy Forum at the Citizens Crime Commission turned international. Given the cross-border cooperation needed to deal with terrorist cells, the Forum’s speakers featured speakers from our closest ally, the UK: Sir Ian Blair, Commissioner of London’s Metropolitan Police; British Home Secretary John Reid; Sir Jeremy Greenstock, Britain’s Permanent Representative to the U.N. and UK Special Envoy to Iraq; Sir Richard Dearlove, head of MI6; and Shaun Woodward, Secretary of State of Northern Ireland and Sir Hugh Orde, Chief Constable, Police Service of Northern Ireland; and Hon. Nick Herbert, MP and Shadow Secretary for State and Justice.
