Why would Obama want to meet Dupnik?

Original caption: President Barack Obama shakes hands with Sheriff Clarence Dupnik as he and first lady Michelle Obama arrive in Tucson, Ariz., to attend a memorial service for victims of last Saturday's shooting rampage that killed six people and left 14 injured, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Wednesday, Jan. 12, 2011.

Why was it so important for Obama to meet Sheriff Dupnik? Why would he even want to be associated with him, considering that at best Dupnik's department missed the glaring warning signs that Loughner was about to go nuts and kill someone?
