As our teams are gearing up (and packing up) for the IACP Conference (#IACP2014) next week in Orlando, the excitement has been building. The conference offers law enforcement agencies, officials and officers an opportunity to better their operations. We will see strategies, new ideas and new technologies shared amongst law enforcement around the world.


With over 200+ sessions, the opportunity to participate in educational sessions targeted to the requirements of law enforcement is unsurpassed. So, we are proud once again to be facilitating sessions this year. One will take place on Monday (10/27) and is titled “Emergencies Do Not Make Appointments: Creating a Connected Public Safety Agency”. It’s an opportunity to hear from several police departments as they highlight a new way of thinking about how public safety infrastructures and communication systems are designed, built, and managed.


Of course, we are once again proud to bring you the IACP and Cisco Community Policing Awards and reception. The competition honors those departments worldwide that have prevented and decreased crime and terrorism by partnering with the communities they serve. The winners and finalists will be honored and recognized at the invitation only event next week.

Chief’s Night, President’s Reception and Annual Banquet

A few other events we are looking forward to and sponsoring are the Host Chief’s Night on Monday night at Universal’s Islands of Adventure Theme Park, and the President’s Reception and Annual Banquet. The annual banquet will feature the formal swearing-in of the president and board of officers for IACP.
