POLICE TECHNICAL Launches New Website

POLICE TECHNICAL has unveiled a refocused website, featuring personalized content and improved navigation. The new site puts company stakeholders and content at the forefront. Police, Sheriff, Federal, Intelligence, and Prosecution each have their own dedicated sections, but can also locate information through a Content Hub.

To create simpler navigation, the site was developed with fewer tabs, a whiter and brighter look, and social media integration. It clearly indicates that POLICE TECHNICAL offers service in four areas: Training, Publishing, Consulting and Software.

Project Management and Implementation

Project management is often seen as some huge mountain of process that must be overcome and therefore must be avoided.

Project Management Terms

Project Sponsor – The person who has the authority to grant the project manager power over project resources, assign a budget and supports the existence of the project. Project Manager – Responsible for developing the project plan and keeping the project on track, monitoring and controlling the project and communicating the project status. Project Charter – This defines the project. This should be in alignment with the goals and vision of the project. Project Scope – This is the “thing” that the project will be creating.

Change Management and the Public Safety Culture

This post is an excerpt from our Body Worn Cameras and New Technology course.  This course covers change management, policy development, Understanding technology terms such as "the cloud", "centralized IT vs. decentralized IT", and "bleeding edge vs. leading edge".  This two day course also covers project management and implementation, as well as IT considerations. Change in any organization is a difficult task to manage. The more something is solidified within an organizational culture, the more difficult it is for the organization to accept the necessary change. Although it may not appear so, many technology advances and projects will have impact on the culture of the organization. It is important to remember that when there is new technology, or updated technology, introduced into the organization that this is a time for change management skills. Proper change management will be essential in the success of the technology initiatives within any organization.
