Law enforcement agencies are always evolving to address a multitude of challenges, and at the National Homeland Security Conference in 2023, a panel of industry leaders convened to discuss some steps behind developing cutting-edge operations centers for intelligence sharing within the public safety community.
This video on YouTube features strategic insights shared during the conference, providing a preliminary guide to building Real-Time Operations Centers (ROC), tailored to the unique needs of law enforcement agencies.
The panel – comprising experts such as Kristen Ziman, retired Chief of Police from the Aurora Police Department; Captain Darin Hull, with the Cobb County Police Department; Sean Arthur, retired Lieutenant from the Collier County Sheriff’s Office, who is now a Real-Time Public Safety specialist at Constant Technologies; and Jay Draisin, retired Captain of the Orlando Police Department, who is now Director of the Fusus Academy and Field Support – shed light on the intricacies of Real-Time Operations Centers (ROCs), Critical Incident Intelligence Centers (CIICs), Real-Time Intelligence Centers (RTICs), and Real-Time Crime Centers (RTCCs).
Blueprint for Success
These centers serve as hubs for operations, crime prevention, intelligence analysis, and incident command – pivotal functions in the arsenal of law enforcement agencies. The blueprint to their success lies in identifying the core needs of an organization. Whether it’s real-time crime tracking, command center coordination, or cutting-edge data analysis, the panel experts guide agencies through a process of identification and customization. This video features different approaches to optimizing efficiency, enhancing security, and utilizing advanced technologies to revolutionize law enforcement.
