    This conference workshop presentation discusses the challenge that many agencies have with staffing or budgeting.

    This conference workshop presentation discusses the challenge that many agencies have with staffing or budgeting. The Chula Vista (CA) Police Department found itself facing both, resulting in a staffing level of less than one officer per thousand. The agency needed a force multiplier and began by issuing smartphones. CVPD then added layers of complementary technology, ultimately resulting in improved response times and increased situational awareness for officers. Command officers from CVPD will provide insight to their nationally recognized Drone-as-a-First Responder program, Live 911, and pilot efforts to use the smartphone as an in-car computer as well as Greenwave technology which improves response by managing traffic signals without installing equipment in patrol cars.

    This conference workshop presentation features a panel that examines a range of compelling cases and promising approaches to help police leaders better understand digital information best practices to address shrinking resources.

    This conference workshop presentation features a panel that examines a range of compelling cases and promising approaches to help police leaders better understand digital information best practices to address shrinking resources. Police digital retention demands integrity, whether operational or administrative. With increases of records, evidence, video capture, digitization of operations and training, department digital storage costs and cyber risk exposure are driven up. Police budgets are shrinking due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the scrutiny of police use of technology, resulting in public calls for criminal justice reform.

A non-technical discussion of key concepts a chief must understand to effectively mitigate current cybersecurity and ransomware threats.
