Penn State Hosts International Conference to Help Police Fight Crime

University Park, PA (PRWEB) November 12, 2009

Budget cuts are plaguing police departments worldwide because of the global economic climate. Los Angeles, for example, has stopped hiring police officers and eliminated a new recruit class; Atlanta officials have hiked property taxes to end furloughs for police and firefighters, and in East St. Louis, Ill., a police officer commended at a City Council meeting for capturing a murder suspect was laid off the same day. What can police departments do? The 2010 International Conference on Results-Driven Policing aims to provide strategies and tools to help police maximize their resources. The conference is planned for May 6-7, 2010, in Baltimore.

“The most important element for fighting crime today is information and how you use it,” said Joe DeStefano, Penn State Justice and Safety Institute client and business development manager and conference organizer. “Police departments need the best possible technology and information to develop and implement effective strategies and tactics to reduce crime and improve the quality of life in their communities.”

Penn State, the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police and the Atlantic Police Academy, Prince Edward Island, have created a partnership to educate and train law enforcement executive and command staff, government managers, research professionals, criminal justice professors and community leaders. This is the first in a series of international policing conferences that will be held in alternate years in the United States and Canada.

Edgar MacLeod, executive director of the Atlantic Police Academy, has been involved in law enforcement for 34 years. He said, “The most pressing police challenge today is the increased accountability placed on police leaders and the increased pressure to provide effective and efficient public safety in our communities. Never before has the challenge been so great to deliver higher-level service without the corresponding resources.”

Peter Cuthbert, executive director of the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP), said, “The CACP looks forward to partnering with Penn State Justice and Safety Institute and the Atlantic Police Academy to participate in this inaugural international conference. The focus on the challenges in policing and the identification of best practices and potential solutions in maximizing resources to improve efficiencies and reduce crime is essential and at an opportune time.”

Conference participants will have opportunities to learn how to do more with less, as well as about the latest knowledge and best practices for effective results-driven policing from police departments successfully using these methods to fight crime. The format for sessions will be similar to town hall meetings, where participants can ask questions of speakers. Topics will include, but are not limited to, the importance of obtaining and sharing information in policing, how to increase accountability and effectiveness, develop force multipliers, link strategies and tactics, and predict and plan for the future.

In addition, a select group of exhibitors will be invited to attend the conference and exhibit their products and services, DeStefano explained.

“The whole agenda of this conference is about how we use data to develop more vibrant partnerships for better policing and improved public safety,” MacLeod said.

For more information and to register for the conference, visit Penn State Justice and Safety Institute online.

Penn State Justice and Safety Institute (JASI) helps thousands of law enforcement and justice system professionals improve their work skills. JASI serves a broad clientele and its services extend to courts, child support enforcement and domestic relations issues, such as training for federal, state and international clients, including the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service. JASI is the sole provider of mandated basic training to Pennsylvania’s deputy sheriffs and has developed and administers the Pennsylvania Child Support Enforcement Training Institute. For more information, visit Penn State Justice and Safety Institute online. JASI is part of Penn State Outreach, the largest unified outreach organization in American higher education, serving more than 5 million people each year, delivering more than 2,000 programs to people in all 67 Pennsylvania counties, all 50 states and 114 countries worldwide.

Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police) is dedicated to the support and promotion of efficient law enforcement and to the protection and security of the people of Canada. Much of the work in pursuit of these goals is done through the activities and special projects of a number of committees and through active liaison with various levels of government and departmental ministries having legislative and executive responsibility in law and policing.

Atlantic Police Academy (Atlantic Police Academy), a division of Holland College, is the preeminent law enforcement training institution in Canada. Offering both full time and in-service programs, the academy trains men and women who want to enter the field of law enforcement and offers advanced training to dedicated law enforcement professionals who need to upgrade their skills or acquire new skills in order to effectively apply new technology in their jurisdictions.

Henley-Putnam University Hosts Information Security Webinar

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) August 23, 2010

During the free webinar, Col. Angley will examine the proliferation of various social media networks, foreign perception of American culture, how data aggregation works, operations security, and immediate challenges facing our country with emerging social media platforms.

Insider’s Guide to Open-Source Security Risks will take place Wednesday, August 25, at 4:00 PM EDT (1:00 PM PDT). Those interested in participating in the webinar should register at https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/882714610. The webinar is open to the public and completely free of charge.

ERASE Racism Hosts Special Celebration to Launch its Second Decade


(PRWEB) April 24, 2012

This years Abraham Krasnoff Courage and Commitment Award honorees exemplify the lasting impact of extraordinary individuals who have devoted their lives to promoting racial equity by addressing institutional and structural racism, says Elaine Gross, President of ERASE Racism, adding, Our Corporate Leadership Award honoree proves that corporations can play a critical role in increasing racial equity. I couldnt think of three honorees more worthy of launching ERASE Racisms second decade of eliminating racial disparities on Long Island.

Among its many achievements over the past 10 years, ERASE Racisms most recent accomplishments include the release of its documentary A TALE OF TWO SCHOOLS: Race and Education on Long Island and a new housing survey report that dispels myths about the causes of segregation, Housing and Neighborhood Preferences of African Americans on Long Island.

ERASE Racism’s 2012 Benefit Celebration will take place Tuesday, June 12th at the Garden City Hotel, where more than 300 supporters will gather to celebrate the past and build for the future. The Abraham Krasnoff Courage and Commitment Award will be presented to Dr. Roscoe C. Brown, pioneer for racial equity as a Tuskegee Airman and as a renowned educator, and to Ms. Joan R. Saltzman, inspiring leader and community activist for equal access and expanded services. ERASE Racism will also present its Corporate Leadership Award to North Shore-LIJ Health System, a visionary leader for equity and excellence in healthcare. The award will be accepted by Jennifer Mieres, M.D., Senior Vice President, Office of Community and Public Health.

The Tuskegee Airmen are often credited with being pioneers of the civil rights movement. Their heroism led to the integration of the armed forces and opened many doors to black Americans. Dr. Roscoe Brown joined the elite African-American pilots, often referred to as the Red Tail Angels, in 1943. He received the Distinguished Flying Cross with eight Oak Clusters and, more recently, the Congressional Gold Medal. Dr. Brown is one of the airmen whose experiences are featured in the current movie, Red Tails. ERASE Racism will honor Dr. Brown for his historic role as a Tuskegee Airmen and for his life-time commitment to racial justice. He has been an eminent professor of education and academic leader; a widely-respected member of dozens of New York City, state and national boards, including Boys and Girls Clubs of America and the American Council on Education; the author of numerous articles and guides on education and other topics; originator, host and guest on many television programs, such as African-American Legends on CUNY-TV; and the recipient of various honors for his significant scholarly and community contributions, including the Congressional Award for Service to the African-American Community, BET Honors and Whos Who in America.

Ms. Joan Saltzman is the embodiment of inspiring leadership, civic responsibility and generous philanthropy. Her work is best known on Long Island, but her influence has extended to the state level. As an advocate and activist, she has shown rare courage and commitment in working to protect Long Islands and New York States most vulnerable residents, combating discriminatory policies and practices, and strengthening and expanding health and human services. Ms. Saltzman has served as a member of key state and local policy and planning bodies. She was a cofounder of the Long Island Community Foundation, North Shore Child & Family Guidance and the Long Island Fund for Women & Girls (recently renamed the Long Island Fund for Women), and she was the founding president of Community Advocates, a non-profit organization that has been a major catalyst for social and racial justice, affordable housing and housing for homeless individuals and families. ERASE Racism will honor Ms. Saltzman for her life-time commitment to social justice and to helping people in need.
