On-demand webinar: Looking over the horizon: a discussion of US public safety trends for 2022
Hear how agencies can be the driver of change from panelists with decades of experience in public safety practice, innovation and technology.
The last few years have been some of the most challenging for public safety in recent memory. Public safety agencies in the US have had to contend with the arrival of COVID-19, nationwide protests and public unrest that followed the murder of George Floyd, a historic rise in violent crime, and a general decline in goodwill toward first responders. It has been an exhausting few years that have seen many changes. The term “Reimagining Policing” came into common usage as part of a national conversation about the presumed mission of public safety agencies. Responsibilities that were once considered basic functions of public safety are now being re-examined, leading many to ask, “How do we move forward?”
Join this discussion of public safety trends and best practices, and hear how public safety agencies can be the driver of these changes from panelists with decades of experience in public safety practice, innovation, and technology.
