Tips for Assessing Your Professional Standards and Early Intervention Systems

Posted by Matt Laskowski on Mar 15, 2018 9:37:40 AM
Have you ever taken a self-assessment exercise? Often times the first thing you're told is that there are no right or wrong answers – the objective is to become more aware of the totality of characteristics that comprise your identity.

The 6 Must-Haves of an Early Intervention System

Posted by Matt Laskowski on Mar 12, 2018 9:13:32 AM
Does your early intervention system allow you to identify potential problems and intervene with customized responses at the very first sign that something could be going wrong?

These consist of products like sirens, radios, breathalyzers — things that police need to do their job every day. Second, there are record management systems (RMS) and other like-systems that help catalog, track and manage criminal incidents and follow-up on investigations. This is very highly evolved software in what is a highly competitive landscape. Third, we have the world of human capital management . . . and this is the part of law enforcement technology that has not been properly addressed.
