As the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) gathers for its annual meeting, technology is at the top of their agenda. Chiefs and their top staff are asking: can communications technology be a better crime-fighting tool? Can new databases support smart policing? Can I keep my officers and community safer with handheld law-enforcement applications?

Sergeant Straka from the St. Paul Police Department knows the answers to those questions and more. His department deployed a handheld application to his officer’s BlackBerry smart devices that provides instant access to NCIC, motor vehicles, and other critical databases. Even better, St. Paul PD is prepared to quickly adopt other new applications as soon as they are developed.

Join us for a live, interactive webcast to help your force get a head start on these critical issues. You can tap this panel of national experts from Emergency Management magazine, the St. Paul Police Department, Sprint, and GrantsOffice.com – all without leaving your office. You will hear:

  • Sergeant Straka of the St. Paul Police Department share real-life “tools of the trade” from his force’s experience with handheld law enforcement applications
  • Mark Albro give an insider report on handheld law-enforcement apps that are already available for BlackBerry on the Sprint Network – and a forecast of what’s on the way
  • Michael Paddock of Grantsoffice.com advise you on finding new funding for critical projects
