Chicago was a great host city for the 118th International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) conference this week. This was my third year attending and I enjoyed the event more than ever. It was an honor to recognize the winners and finalists from the IACP Community Policing Award hosted by Cisco at Tommy Guns. Highlights include:
- IACP Community Policing Awards Reception
- Policing in the New Normal Workshop: New Economics, New Opportunities, New Strategies: Balancing Services and Technology to Address Community, Crime, and Terrorism.
If you missed this session, you can still watch the recording on webex.
