WHY: Safety and security issues are increasingly complex. For effective management, access to real time information, quick responses and often a high degree of inter-agency collaboration and cooperation is necessary. As the number of technologies and threats increase, how can communities bring order to the flow and management of information? How can they improve the efficiency and speed of response? How can they improve coordination and information sharing across agencies?
  During the session, Sergeant Gaw and Mr. Fowler will discuss:
   • How to share technologies to easily identify, visually verify, and obtain details of a situation to protect citizens and assets;
   • How to analyze and correlate vast streams of data as well as IT security systems to identify and prioritize situations in real time; and
   • How to share the right information with the right people at the right time for effective situation management and resolution.
  Register for this live webinar to learn how to improve safety and security in a connected community to save time, money, and in some cases lives.
