Each year at the IACP Annual Conference and Exposition, the host agency provides an educational track to share their ideas, programs, and achievements with attendees. These lessons learned shared are transferable to other agencies, regardless of size or population served. This year, the Chicago Police Department will be focusing on a number of issues including procedural justice and police legitimacy, technology, partnerships, and crime prevention and reduction.
The sessions in this track will provide valuable insight to agencies from all over the world that deal with many of the same issues and are looking for successful tools, strategies, and resources. Here are just a few sessions in the 2015 Host Department Track:
- Training Our Youth – The Chicago Police and Fire Fighter Training Academy Program (CPFTA)
- Taking Care of Our Own – In-House Counseling and Employee Assistance Program
- Bridging the Divide – Chicago Alternative Policing Strategy (CAPS)
- The Gang Violence Reduction Strategy of the Chicago Police Department
- City of Chicago Long-Term Evolution (LTE) Broadband Pilot
- The Chicago NATO Model—Bringing Order to Disorder While Ensuring 1st Amendment Rights
- Operation Virtual Shield—The City of Chicago’s Camera Surveillance Program
