In ways we could only imagine a decade ago, technology is improving the delivery of services across state and local governments. Isolated systems can now work together, we have the capacity to capture and analyze data like never before, and information can be delivered into our hands exactly how and when we need it.

But all this advancement comes at a price, sometimes a steep one, and funding to support innovation can seem elusive. Fortunately, there are a number of federal and state grant programs that have been specifically created to support innovation in specific public sector applications, and learning about them is the first step in accessing them!

Join Grants Office CEO and special guests from NetApp for a fast-paced look at how leading communities have been able to fund innovation and the technologies that have dramatically improved outcomes across government. As a thank you for participating in this event, every government representative who registers will receive a free Grants Office Funding Opportunity Report, developed just for you with information you provide and detailing the grant opportunities that could fund your community’s plans for innovation.

The use of video surveillance in policing has a long and established history. However, recent events involving officers and citizens, fueled by the Internet and proliferation of social media, have converged to catapult body-worn cameras (BWCs) and other video monitoring techniques into the public consciousness. As the numerous benefits associated with BWCs, in-car video and the evidence it provides comes to light, the law enforcement community and the public they serve are reaching a consensus that BWCs and other video applications are a core component of 21st Century policing and beyond.

As the demand for such video technology increases exponentially over the next several years, police departments and other law enforcement agencies must find a way to fund the implementation of BWC programs. A comprehensive BWC program is more than purchasing cameras, it involves the crafting and implementation of policies and procedures, officer training, digital evidence management and public outreach.

Join Grants Office, LLC and WatchGuard Video as we explore various grant programs that will fund BWCs, as well as other solutions such as in-car video. In addition to gaining an understanding of the funding available and tips to secure grants, participants will learn about the latest and greatest video technology available to public safety agencies.

What Will Be Covered:
• Policy considerations to evaluate before you deploy
• Funding options to help you pay for the cost of the system
• Building robust and scalable camera, infrastructure and storage configurations

Public safety agencies across the country are swimming in data from an expanding array of sources that might now also include body-worn video and intelligence data from fusion centers. But are you getting what you need from all this data, and how can you get funding to help you mobilize your data for your agency and community?

Join Grants Office CEO Michael Paddock and special guests from NetApp for a look at the issues that the growth in data are creating, tips for accessing and using your data to achieve better policing outcomes faster, and strategies for converting outcomes into funding to help you pay for it.

WATCH THE REPLAY HERE: Grants that can fund technology in its many forms can also fund measures to secure that technology and the data it contains, but for whatever reason, IT security is often left out of grant budgets and as a result left either to the grant recipient to pay or not integrated at all – either of which can leave the organization vulnerable to security breaches and the liability that goes along with them!

Join Grants Office and special guests from Century Link as we review strategies for building security into your organization’s grant proposals and a look at some of the most technology-friendly grant programs in government and education. We’ll also highlight VMware’s new Disaster Recovery as a Service and other solutions that can help you keep your data safe and available.

CLICK THE LINK TO VIEW THE RECORDING: Video technologies, including body-worn, fixed-site and in-car video are transforming the business of policing and prosecution. At the same time, these technologies are also requiring public safety officials to develop new policies and systems to keep the huge amounts of data they are generating secure and accessible when it is needed. Fortunately, a number of grant programs can help justice agencies fund digital evidence management systems, putting information squarely on the side of the good guys. 

Join Grants Office CEO and special guests from NetApp for a look at the grants that can fund digital evidence management and some of the latest technologies that are making it more useful than ever. 

Everyone who registers will also receive a PDF copy of the whitepaper, Grants for Managing Digital Evidence: A Handbook for Law Enforcement, Prosecutors, and Courts, full of information on funding opportunities and tips for making your digital evidence project compelling to funders.

Access to data where and when it is needed is more than just an IT concern. Increasingly, it is an operational necessity, with implications for response times, situational intelligence, safety of personnel, and overall mission execution. Unfortunately, the technologies that can provide these benefits are outside the normal budget parameters of many public safety and emergency management agencies. 

The good news is that federal and state grant funds can help make up the difference between what you need and what you can afford, and CDW and VMware have teamed up with Grants Office to help you take advantage of these funding opportunities. 

Join Grants Office CEO Michael Paddock and special guests from VMware and CDW as we review the grant-fundable applications of virtualization in a public safety context. We’ll review funding from the Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, and state sources as well.

 
Nov 19 2014 2:00PM

The Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program provides funding for a wide range of Firefighting and EMS needs, including robust technology solutions that provide data-rich situational awareness and enhanced dispatch capabilities. 

Join Grants Office CEO Michael Paddock and special guests from Panasonic for a look at how AFG funds technology for fire and EMS applications and what resources are available to help make your 2014 AFG application competitive, rewarding, and responsive to your community’s needs.
