Technology Convergence--Key Trends & Operational Priorities in Public Safety Technology
Technology is transforming justice and public safety operations in fundamental ways. New and emerging technologies are playing an increasingly crucial role in the daily work of frontline police officers, equipping them with enforcement and investigative tools that have the potential of making them significantly better informed, safer and more effective. Technology is also changing the structure and operation of agencies, enabling administrators to more efficiently manage and deploy resources, monitor crime trends with greater precision, and target intervention and investigative assets with greater effectiveness. Technology is facilitating closer and more collaborative relationships between public safety agencies and the community, empowering the general public and raising their expectations regarding the transparency of government agencies. This keynote presentation will examine key trends in technology, policy and practice, and will explore operational priorities facing justice and public safety agencies throughout the nation and around the world.

i2:  Gateway for Fusion of Intelligence Led Analytical Discovery with Tactical Law Enforcement Applications of Data Mining
The tactical direct use of dynamic situational data within public safety operations has long been limited by access, human absorptive formatting, and timeliness.  Data mining systems now bring reference and recent information to the enforcement edge... The next generation of solutions will also fuse dynamic data based discovery with tactically available referent systems enabling officers in the field to ask, tailor, and receive highly focused information that expands their situational vision and multiplies their tactical insight based on their operational environment.  Complex and often dangerous tactical situations can be simplified and in many cases preemptive tactical options can be applied based on "Left of Boom" understanding that will save lives in both the protected population and within the policing force.
