This groundbreaking summit was produced by the GWG Agency on behalf of the Black Chamber of Arizona in conjunction with the University of Phoenix College of Security and Criminal Justice and the Checkered Flag Run Foundation.

The event featured an interactive results-oriented dialog including seven police chiefs from across the nation and hosted by General Spider Marks, a CNN Military correspondent.

The audience comprised of law enforcement professionals, community-based organizations, business and government leaders. There was a main dialog with an audience of 160 and then more intimate break out sessions to foster more direct conversation between the audience and the chiefs.

The event gave the University of Phoenix insightful information to incorporate into their classroom curriculum. The Bridge Summit is now being replicated across the country.
