Public safety agencies are operating in a fast changing world. Evolving citizen expectations for safety and trust, new threats and patterns of crime, and increasing pressure to improve operational efficiencies are driving change.
Should public safety leadership focus on fighting crime efficiently? Or should it focus on growing public trust? Forward-thinking public safety leaders realize that to build legitimacy they must improve crime prevention and public trust. Police technology and digital applications offer public safety leaders ways to do both.
