Seminar – Out With the Old, In With the New: Reducing Risks Through Technology Upgrades

9:15am – 10:15am
Dealing with outdated equipment is not only a headache to manage, but can also prove dangerous in an emergency. The Dane County Jail, located in Madison, WI, was dealing with old and failing lock mechanisms in a portion of their jail built in the 1950s. At their worst, these locks would completely fail and take an hour to get into a cell. Knowing that the county was anticipating building a new jail, they settled on an interim solution to retrofit newer technology on old doors. This presentation will review the technology they implemented along with other life safety systems, as well as highlighting options in detention security technologies available to turn your outdated facility into a more efficient, safer, and code compliant operation.
Presenters: Lt. Jeff Heil, Deputy Jail Administrator, Dane County Sheriff’s Office, Madison, WI and Tim Redden, Security Technology Specialist, Mead & Hunt, Middleton, WI

Topics that will be addressed include how leadership and command staff impact officer wellness, officer burnout and critical incident responses, and resources available to agencies to ensure their officers are getting the appropriate care.

Seminar – Defense Support of Civilian Law Enforcement Agencies Following Cataclysmic Events  

2:15pm – 3:15pm
While the country has made remarkable strides in preparing for and responding to major disasters–from hurricanes and floods to wildfires, tornadoes and more–there is another tier of destruction that we have been spared, witnessed in other parts of the globe. Earthquakes, tsunamis and pandemics all threaten a degree of damage and disruption whose enormity, immediacy and enduring impact will dwarf the effects of anything we have witnessed in the last half century. Were such cataclysmic events to occur in our country, whether by nature or at the hand of our enemies, the military would be called upon to supplement any number of functions normally borne by state, local, territorial or tribal governments. But before recovery can begin, security must be restored and maintained. No function of government, therefore, will be more important, or more compelling to reinforce, than law enforcement. How that support will be realized will be contingent upon how we prepare and, in particular, how we plan.

Seminar – Going Dark: Combatting Terrorism, Human Trafficking, Cybercriminals and Drug Cartels in the Age of Warrant Proof Encryption

3:00pm – 4:00pm
NSA General Counsel Tom Wheeler moderates a panel discussion on obtaining lawful access to information on social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, as they begin to implement warrant proof encryption, so called “going dark”. The panel will discuss the recent concerns expressed by both Attorney General Barr and FBI Director Wray over the impact of this warrant proof encryption on law enforcement and discuss some potential solutions.
Service providers, device manufacturers and application developers are developing and deploying encryption that can only be decrypted by the end user or customer, and they are refusing to provide technology that allows for lawful access by law enforcement agencies in appropriate circumstances. As a result, law enforcement agencies are increasingly prevented from accessing communications in transit or data stored on cell phones or computers, even with a warrant based on probable cause to believe that criminal activity is underway. Because, in the digital age, the bulk of evidence is becoming digital, this form of “warrant proof” encryption poses a grave threat to public safety by extinguishing the ability of law enforcement to obtain evidence essential to detecting and investigating crimes. It allows criminals to operate with impunity, hiding their activities under an impenetrable cloak of secrecy. As you know, some refer to this eclipsing of the Government’s investigative capabilities as “going dark.” – AG Barr
Moderator: Tom Wheeler, former Assistant Attorney General, U.S. Department of Justice, NSA General Counsel
Panelists: Sujit Raman, Associate Deputy Attorney General, U.S. Department of Justice, Darrin E. Jones, Assistant Director, IT Infrastructure Division, Washington, D.C.

Seminar – Building Bridges: Lessons Learned from Expanding Access to MAT in 16 Jails

3:30pm – 4:30pm
Nearly one in five people entering local jails has an opioid use disorder (OUD), and the high prevalence of OUD in the jail population is especially concerning given the high rates of overdose post-release. Studies have estimated that formerly incarcerated people are significantly more likely to die of a drug overdose in the two weeks immediately post-release than are members of the general population. Individuals with OUDs who leave jail untreated also may continue their drug use, which can contribute to recidivism and reincarceration. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the gold standard treatment for OUD and has been shown to reduce fatal overdoses and illicit drug use but, unfortunately, treatment access is limited in most communities and absent in many jails.

This session will highlight strategies for successfully providing MAT to individuals with OUD in jail and ways to effectively connect these individuals to treatment in the community upon release.
