How can law enforcement agencies leverage technology to improve residents’ experience, create positive police-resident interactions, and build community trust? The panelists are members from both the startup community and police departments who have partnered to do just that. We’ll cover topics like: serving residents as if they were your customers, giving officers better intelligence in the field to navigate situations involving people with mental illnesses, and storytelling with data.
