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.

Steve Taylor will share how, from an engagement with Oregon State Police, the development of the PR*VIDE Asset and Inventory Management suite of solutions came to be. He will detail multiple cases and capabilities whereby an Agency can not only obtain fast payback on the investment but continue to make savings and improve responsiveness both to the public and internally.
In addition, he will share insights into how small groups can participate in a capability normally outside their resources and contribute to multi-agency capabilities.

Pulling It All Together - Managing All Classes of Assets As One
For more information: www.provista.com

So what have we got and where is it? And is it operational and who has it?

There’s Finances view, there’s Operations view, there’s the Lieutenant’s spreadsheet and there’s that other spreadsheet as well (I think)….

So much equipment these days, so much investment and we just can’t get a full picture of it all – or at least one that we believe is accurate. So how can we control and manage what we don’t know? By applying a multi-location, multiclass Asset and Inventory Management solution across your organization, you start to gain insight on what is really happening to all that “stuff”. And with that insight comes the ability to plan, manage and execute appropriate actions that will reduce risk, maximize skills and assets, improve officer safety and “squeeze more juice” out of both valuable and limited resources in your care.

Come and see how it all fits together in a demonstration of the PR*VIDE solution suite.

“The police are the public and the public are the police…” The very essence of community policing began in 1829 with these words from Sir Robert Peel. Explore how crowdsourcing can expand the scope, reach and frequency of crime fighting and involve citizens from around the world. With over one billion users on Facebook and over five hundred million on Twitter, social media can shrink the world for law enforcement and the criminals they pursue.
