Conference Spotlight: Host Department Track

HostDepartmentTrackEach year at an annual IACP Conference and Expo, the host city police department puts together an entire educational track to showcase topics that are not only relevant to them, but to the entire law enforcement community. We’re taking IACP 2014 to Orlando from October 25-28, so this week’s Education Track blog will feature the Host Department Track! Look for this icon on the conference website and in the program to indicate Host Department Track workshops.

Here are a couple sessions the Orlando Police Department will showcase:

Planning and Implementing a Security Plan: The Zimmerman Trial: Florida was home to the most-watched criminal trial of 2013… so how did the law enforcement agencies involved juggle security for the media and the players involved in the court case? Swing by on Sunday, October 26, at 1:00 PM for a sneak peek into the planning and operations that took place behind the scenes.

Interoperability and Inter-Agency Cooperation Models for Success: Examining Brazil’s Public Safety During the World Cup: Speaking of most-watched events, hear from experts on the mechanics behind Brazil’s plan for operating security between national and international public safety organizations at the FIFA 2014 World Cup. Hear about what worked and what lessons can be learned by coming at 3:30 PM on Tuesday, October 28.

As you can tell by the two aforementioned workshops, the Host Department Track offers some invaluable and current information on issues that are pertinent to law enforcement. This track is offered throughout the entirety of the conference from October 25-28, so there is plenty of time to make room for the Host Department Track!

While we’re on the subject of Orlando, there’s plenty for your family to do while you’re attending workshop, and great places to hang out after a day packed with networking and education. Find information on attractions and special discounts here!
