Defence, Security and Justice
National Insights – Fall Edition

Thursday, September 22, 2022 | 12:00pm – 2:30pm ET / 9:00am – 11:30am PT | Online

Event Overview

Strengthen Public Safety Relationships and Safeguard First Responders with Emerging Technologies in the Times of Disruption and Distress

Exponential technologies, big data, and advanced analytics are revolutionizing the work of first responders across Canada. While these tools will not replace the human element and back-to-basics policing, they are disrupting traditional public models for the better.

These technologies are providing new ways to help citizens to connect with first responders, build trust, and strengthen relationships with communities. They also enable the first responders to protect themselves in case of distress and unplanned attacks and events.

Join our Defence, Security and Justice: Q3: National Insights – Fall Edition, where the experts and practitioners will share their quest to capitalize on emerging technologies to help improve how they can protect our citizens and enhance their staff’s safety.
