Reimagining the Future of Public Safety: A Roadmap for Change
Karol V. Mason, President, John Jay College of Criminal Justice

In collaboration with the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, this presentation will be an overview of recent open and honest discussions among law enforcement executives, community activists, business leaders, policymakers and other public service leaders to understand current challenges for law enforcement and to identify solutions and create a new model of public safety for the future.

Active Bystandership for Law Enforcement: Training Officers How to Intervene
Jonathan Aronie, Partner, Sheppard Mullin LLP; Co-Founder, ABLE Project

In collaboration  with the Georgetown University Law Center’s Innovative Police Program Active Bystandership for Law Enforcement (ABLE) Project, this presentation outlines the ABLE Project and focuses on solutions for training officers how to intervene.  While many will watch the video of George Floyd’s death and understandably focus on the actions of the primary aggressor, the actions of the other “bystander” officers on the scene hold a key to solving this seemingly intractable problem. For years, the policing profession has been telling officers to “speak up” and “step in” when they witness mistakes.  Most officers know WHAT to do, but many don’t know HOW to do it safely and effectively.

Strategic Succession Planning
Chief Peter Dunbar (Ret), Pleasant Hill Police Department (CA)

Understanding the need for and application of strategic succession planning is critical to the success of any law enforcement agency.  This presentation will examine new strategies for staff development, retention, recruitment and training as applied to leaders and employees at all levels. 

Crisis Communications and Social Media
Judy Pal, Former Assistant Commissioner, New York PD (NY)

This presentation provides law enforcement leaders a high-level outline about how both traditional and social media cover crises, and tactics agencies can use to frame narratives and manage their message. The session covers current media coverage methods including how traditional media decontexualize events, the role social media factions play in escalating crises, and how social media is being weaponized.  A broad outline of actions an agency should take before, during and after a crisis will be discussed.

Interacting with Automated Driving System (ADS) Equipped Vehicles
Captain Rick Arnold, Michigan State Police; FBINA Graduate, Session 238
Assistant Chief David Jenkins, California Highway Patrol; FBINA Graduate, Session 261
Brian Ursino , Director, Law Enforcement American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators; Assistant Chief (Ret), Washington State Patrol.

An overview of the  American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) law enforcement guidelines for the Safe Testing and Deployment of Automated Driving System Equipped Vehicles.  Specific focus will be on criminal activity, establishing operational responsibility, law enforcement protocols and interaction plans, Data Collection Mechanisms, Law Enforcement Safety and Training, System Misuse, and Cybersecurity
Resolving Media and Departmental Misinterpretations:  Forensic Applications to Officer-Involved Shootings (OIS)
Chief Deputy Rod Englert (Ret), Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office (OR)

Law enforcement is currently facing public scrutiny any time an officer is involved in a shooting, especially when a death occurs.  So often, misguided information is premature, which opens the door to lawsuits resulting in complex litigation.  It is unfortunate that in many OIS cases, the officer was justified in a decision to stop the threat, but evidence was missed which delivered a different outcome.  This presentation will offer solutions to avoid misinterpretations that vilify the officer(s) without a proper analysis of the evidence.
