IPMBA Conference Archives
2004 IPMBA Conference
Officers, medics, and security personnel from over 30 states and six countries descended upon the Adams Mark hotel in San Antonio for a 10-day training fiesta. Once again, the amount of experience and knowledge was staggering. Everyone went home from the conference with some additional tools to help them perform their jobs safely and effectively. The only things that they didn't take home were the medals from the competition--rainstorms and obstacle courses are not a good combination!
Thanks to Our Hosts
Many thanks to Chief Albert Ortiz and the San Antonio Police Department especially the Downtown Foot & Bike Patrol for hosting the 14th Annual IPMBA Conference. With the support of some neighboring agencies, including St. Mary's University PD, Our Lady of the Lake University PD, Cypress Creek EMS, San Marcos PD, San Antonio Airport PD, San Antonio Park Police, UTSA PD, San Antonio ISD PD, San Antonio FD, Bexar County SO, and Comal County SO, they put together an outstanding event.
The list of individuals who contributed their time and talents to the conference would fill the pages of this newsletter, but it is only fitting to mention the person who was responsible for it all: Officer T.J. Richardson. This two-time conference host demonstrated that without a doubt, his passion for IPMBA and bike patrol is as big as Texas.
