What's on tap for Accelerate 2018

With the advent of new technologies, policing is rapidly evolving. Accelerate gives you the info you need to keep up—and get ahead. Whether you’re a chief at the helm of a large department, a line officer looking to advance, a seasoned trainer, a Chief Information Officer or a busy prosecutor, Accelerate will give you the fuel to do what you do even better.

HERE’S JUST A SMALL SAMPLING OF SESSIONS AT THIS YEAR’S CONFERENCE.

 

Body worn Cameras: The Most Underutilized Risk Management Tool

Uses for video gathered in the field don’t end in the courtroom. Body-Worn Cameras can enhance transparency and reduce citizen complaints, but they can also be used to reduce physical risk to the individual officer, as well as the significant financial risk to the law enforcement agency. This training session will show you how to reduce agency liability, identify training gaps and improve police-citizen encounters.

Presented by Chief Jonathan Parham, Linden PD

 

KEEPING THE SUPER HEROES SUPER

Public safety professionals are passionate about serving others; however, this calling can take its toll. High stress, low sleep, dealing with the worst of society and witnessing human tragedy reduces employees' mental/physical health. This class will explore the differences between stress, burnout and compassion fatigue and describe how to address each one.

Presented by Kimberly A. Miller, Ph.D., MISCP

 

LEVERAGING BWCS TO ENGAGE WITH THE COMMUNITY AND HUMANIZE YOUR OFFICERS

Since Boynton Beach Police began using body cameras in May 2017, Public Information Officer Stephanie Slater has been reviewing officers’ videos for interesting calls for service that will help the agency promote the positive work officers do in the community. PIO Slater will speak about how your agency can tap into this resource to showcase the work your officers are doing to serve their communities.

Presented by Stephanie Slater, Boynton Beach PD

LONDON MET GAMIFICATION STUDY

The Metropolitan Police (MPS) has achieved the largest rollout of Body Worn Video (BWV) delivering cameras to 22,000 officers across London. This session will cover the rollout journey from pilot to installation and showcase the three types of online training utilized. A training exercise will follow to clearly illustrate how this type of learning intertwines police culture with technology.

Presented by Sandra Wood, The Metropolitan Police

 

SWIFTER PATHS TO JUSTICE: HOW BWC FOOTAGE CAN IMPACT COURT PROCEEDINGS

Can body-worn camera footage help us get to the truth faster? Come learn about the successes and challenges that have arisen in this new era of digital evidence. Session leaders will discuss both body-worn cameras and the Evidence.com platform as a whole, delving into each one’s potential impact on conviction rates, rates of guilty pleas, and time to trial.

Presented by Brent Berkley, former prosecutor

 

GETTING THE RIGHT PEOPLE TO THE TOP OF YOUR LIST: RUNNING A BETTER PROMOTIONAL PROCESS

Many promotional processes focus on asking employees to jump through several hoops to prove their worth on one day rather than assessing the employee's behavior/history of interactions over time. This class will focus on the benefits of running a historically-based promotional process, describe specific components of the process and provide examples of exercises and questions that will separate your real leaders from impostors.

Presented by Kimberly A. Miller, Ph.D., MISCP
