Safety and security is a foundational expectation for any community around the world. The challenge and the opportunity to deliver on this base need have never been more acute. The consumerization of technology and the rapid advance of sophisticated communication tools have changed the dynamic for agencies charged with maintaining a stable community.  Public agenicies are no longer alone in these concerns as private enterprise is now both requesting and providing help. 

The planets biggest democracy, second most populous country and world’s biggest religious melting pot has a population of more than 1.1 Bilion people. Diverse, vibrant and open for business with global recognition in fields from technology and medicine to literature and filmmaking, India serves as an instructive example for answering difficult questions. 

Join us as we journey into the heart of India’s Safety and Security endeavors visiting with key officials and community leaders who share both a depth of experience and an optimistic plan for leading their nation, their community, and their neighbors.

The examples are local but the concerns are global.  No matter what part of the planet you are responsible for, you will benefit from this revealing look at four key trends shaping today’s government agency: 

Borderless Threats – criminal endeavors don’t adhere to predefined notions of jurisdictions.  Information sharing and collaboration cannot be considered an aspiration, but a baseline.

Technology Consumerization – the most advanced communications in our history are now found in the hands of the individual.  Government agencies struggle under the weight of an aging, inflexible infrastructure that must lead and interoperate.

Budget Shortfalls – citizen expectations are rising in contrast to budgets that are falling. Creative use of technology that respects the unique demands of public agencies and increases the efficacy of first responders is now paramount.

Critical Infrastructure –Infrastructure vital to government operations has come under increased scrutiny from the domino effect with any lapse in protection.  Private industry is both asking and offering help – the reality of integration remains key.
