Solve Police Challenges with Data

February 4, 2016 1:21 pm PST | Public Safety

From the White House to police departments to individual citizens, there is recognition that data-centered police-community relations will better meet the needs of both the police and those they serve. Transparency is the foundation of trust and ultimately engagement. In the past year we have witnessed a complete shift with many police departments today embracing data transparency as the foundation to enhancing, or in some cases restoring trust.

Join Bill Schrier, Chief Information Officer of the Seattle Police Department and Cam Caldwell of Socrata for an engaging discussion on the Open Policing Movement on Tuesday, February 9, 2016 at 10 a.m. PST / 1 p.m. EST. Together, they’ll discuss tactics for using open data to take on law enforcement challenges.

Schrier brings a unique perspective from the field. Only a few years ago, when the Seattle Police Department faced a federal investigation, the department took the opportunity to embrace reforms in oversight, training, and reporting. Today, his department has established a much stronger relationship with citizens and has even found ways to reduce operating costs.

Webinar participants will learn exactly what to consider before incorporating and deploying new technologies to improve public safety. Specifically, the webinar will showcase:

  • How crime data transparency delivers results
  • Examples of public safety data transparency in cities
  • How the latest available tools can reduce costs and increase efficiency

City leadership, data analysts, and law enforcement professionals are encouraged to attend this important discussion on open data and law enforcement.
