2019 IACP Recap: SCHRADERGROUP Attends World’s Largest Law Enforcement Event

SCHRADERGROUP (SG) attended the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) 2019 Annual Conference and Exposition on October 26-29. The event was held in Chicago, Illinois.

The IACP conference is the world’s largest law enforcement event to take place each year. SG is an active member of IACP and regularly attends the annual conference. This year, SG team members Harry Pettoni and Larry Bickford exhibited at the Expo. They met new clients, connected with existing clients and interacted with many Chiefs of Police. The SG team discussed current facility needs with clients and arranged follow-up meetings.

The SG team attended educational sessions supporting the planning, design and construction process of police facilities. Speakers presented information about the impact of technology on law enforcement agencies as wells as the future challenges police & law enforcement agencies may encounter. The SG team discovered new techniques of leveraging technology to enhance public safety in neighborhoods and schools.

The IACP has issued an updated 2019 Police Facilities Planning Guidelines Book that defines current strategies in the design and construction process of public safety facilities. By attending the conference, SG maintains our knowledge base to aid clients for ongoing success.
