Who is PERF? They’re a non-governmental international organization of law enforcement officers in the US, Canada and the UK, financed by corporations and government agencies.
PERF’s executive director is Chuck Wexler, a former operations assistant to the Police Commissioner in the City of Boston. Mr. Wexler currently serves on DHS’ Homeland Security Advisory Council alongside police officers, representatives from private corporations, university representatives, current and former governors and others, including Bonnie Michelman, a professor of criminal justice at Boston’s Northeastern University, and Ray Kelly, police commissioner of the NYPD.
A representative from war and security industry giant Lockheed Martin also serves on the council. (Among other contracts, Lockheed was awarded a nearly $1 billion agreement to design and implement the DOJ’s massive new biometrics database,"Next Generation Identification," which aims to be the largest biometrics database in the world and will serve US federal and local law enforcement, providing information on millions of people including palm prints gathered from scenes of interest to police.)
