Description

Divided into four sections—public safety agencies, key issues like interoperability and cybercrime, management skills, and emerging trends like the transfer of military technologies to civilian agencies, Managing Public Safety Technology illustrates how essential managing technology is to the success of any project. Based on the authors’ years of experience dealing with information systems and other tools, this book offers guidance for line personnel, supervisors, managers, and anyone dealing with public safety technology.

Designed for current or future public safety personnel, especially those in management, Managing Public Safety Technology can also be used for undergraduate and graduate public safety management and leadership programs.

Reviews

Heretofore, there was little systematic guidance for public agency practitioners and/or educators in navigating the murky waters of publicly-funded technology procurement. Authors Lacher and Rose now provide that much-needed guidance and wisdom about this process from concept to fruition. This book is a must-read for everyone in academia and the public sector. –Paul Cappitelli, Executive Director of the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (Retired)

This book is a must-read for all public safety personnel who are tasked with a technology project. Millions of tax payer dollars are spent on public safety technology projects. This book provides practical guidelines and examples that will help you save time and money. –Detective Laren Leichliter, San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, San Bernardino County Safety Employees’ Benefit Association (President), California Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Commission (Chair)
