In applications across the country, video as a tool for public safety and justice has increased officer safety, improved community relations, and supported convictions, and as a result, we see cameras cropping up all over – on buildings, in cruisers, on uniforms, and even on handguns. But adding new cameras, especially rolling out video initiatives across an entire department, can be expensive, and even if you can afford the cameras, the existing IT infrastructure may not support them. This is a common issue that can lead to chicken-and-egg discussions about upgrading infrastructure or buying cameras and can present a serious barrier to deploying the video tools you know will advance your public safety mission.

Fortunately, there are resources available to help make your video deployment possible, without breaking the budget.

Join Grants Office and special guests from the SentiVault team as we discuss a two-pronged approach to solving the budget-infrastructure dilemma. First, Grants Office consultants will show you how to find and access video-friendly grants to fund the purchase and deployment of cameras and the infrastructure they need to run optimally. Second, the SentiVault team will provide guidelines for planning and configuring a video initiative, so that it uses only the bandwidth and storage it needs and keeps operating costs down.

If you’re considering starting or expanding a video initiative this year, you won’t want to miss this event!

Special Note: Everyone who registers for this event will receive a PDF copy of the 2018 Guide to Grants that Fund Law Enforcement Video, full of information on video-friendly grants and tips for getting your video project funded.

Every year, nearly $50 billion dollars in grant funds are awarded by private and corporate foundations – with many of these dollars going to support education initiatives. For those who have only considered state or federal competitive grant opportunities, this means that you could be missing out on a number of relevant funding sources. Foundation funders are often less constrained in their grant making, and as a result, can be quite technology-friendly as well. Further, foundation grants are a great way for staff at schools or districts with little to no grant-seeking experience to hone their skills.

Join Grants Office and special guests from Microsoft and Connection Public Sector Solutions for a fast-paced review of tips for developing proposals in response to foundation funding opportunities, in addition to some of the most popular education technologies available to districts. Whether you’re looking to fund a few devices for a single classroom or a larger education technology initiative spanning your entire district or school, this session will give you the foundation you need to find and compete for grants from a wide variety of foundation funders!

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.

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.

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.
