Tackling some difficult issues at IACP 2012

It’s great to be here in San Diego for the International Association of Chiefs of Police 119th Annual Conference. And this is the fourth time WebsEdge will be producing IACP TV at the convention.

We go all round the world producing television programmes – at last count we’d worked in some 60 countries. But this event is always one of the highlights of our calendar for me. It’s always great to meet what have now become old friends and to listen and learn in the education tracks – 12 I think at this year’s event – and just to wonder round the impressive exhibition.

But I think this year it goes beyond that. I’ve noticed a real desire among the IACP leadership to tackle some of the difficult issues facing law enforcement in the 21st century. So in our programmes in 2012 as well as featuring best practice from police departments throughout the US we’re including some pieces that perhaps make less comfortable viewing.

Officer wellness and safety has been a theme for a little while and again it’s going to be important for us in San Diego. But we’re also going to have a good look at combating extremism and the very thorny issue of wrongful convictions.

So it’s great to be back. And coming from a cold and wet London the sunshine in San Diego is awesome. But for me the real highlight of this week is the IACP’s readiness to get behind it’s members when it really counts.

Have a look at all the films and conference coverage here…

And follow us and the conference on Twitter @WebsEdge_Gov  – #IACP2012
