In my blog last month, I discussed how my team and I have been preparing for the upcoming International Association of Chiefs of Police annual conference (IACP 2019). Now, with the show only a few weeks away, we are getting excited about the opportunity to speak to law enforcement professionals from across the country and learn about the issues most important to them. We will also have a chance to connect with our customers and discuss the technologies they say will shape the future of policing.
This year’s agenda appears to be jam-packed and centers around finding the answers to tomorrow’s challenges in law enforcement – a theme that rings particularly true for my team and me. As we speak to and learn from police chiefs and their command staff, one topic that continually comes up is how routine tasks, like incident reporting, get in the way of their ability to focus on mission-critical tasks, like being out in the community.
This topic is particularly important to us as well. Nuance will deliver a panel discussion at the conference which addresses this very subject, the burden of paperwork in policing and the ripple effects it can have on departments, from limiting community visibility, the accuracy and completeness of reports, to burnout and officer safety.
Our panel, Alleviating Paperwork Burnout in Policing: Why Departments Need to Turn to New Police Reporting Tools, will include police chiefs who, along with Nuance, will address this important issue within the industry. It takes place on Sunday, October 27th at 12:30 PM in room W192c at McCormick Place West.
If you plan to attend the IACP 2019 Conference, October 27-29, 2019 in Chicago, IL, stop by our booth #3426 and let’s chat about the future of technology in law enforcement. We hope to see you in Chicago.
