Senior Justice Advisor
As an advocate for Connected Justice Solutions at Cisco, Daniel Stewart is dedicated to helping the Criminal Justice community improve the use of technology with clear returns on investments and increased safety and security.
Prior to joining Cisco, Stewart’s efforts as Chairman and Commissioner of the New York State Commission of Correction led to one of the widest growing video integration projects in the country. By year-end 2011, over 50% of New York State’s County Jails were operating on video platform technology enhancements for inmate services.
Stewart led the regulatory oversight agency of the New York State Correction System including state prison facilities, county jail facilities, New York City Department of Correction (Riker’s Island), secure juvenile facilities and police department lockups. Stewart served three terms as Mayor to the City of Plattsburgh, New York, where he helped achieve the national ranking of #1 Small City in the United States by Site Selection Magazine for small city development opportunities. He was a team member in the re-use of the former Plattsburgh Air Force Base upon its closure, widely recognized as the best re-use example of a military facility asset in the United States.
Stewart served his country as a Sergeant in the United States Air Force as a member of the Strategic Air Command. He was awarded achievement medals for professional service and actions taken during an operational situation, good conduct, and outstanding unit ribbon while on active duty.
Stewart’s time in local and state government service gives him a keen knowledge and understanding of the many implications and challenges involved in the decision making process for projects at the local and state government levels.
