Seminar – The Reality of Border Security

8:00am – 9:00am
The purpose of this presentation would be to provide a rational and fact-based review of security on our southern border from a public safety and public policy standpoint.  The presentation will include photos of the actual border and examples of human and drug trafficking.  This should be both educational and informative for those sheriffs who have not visited the border.  There will be ample time for Q&A.  Finally, this should enlighten sheriffs with respect to how conditions on the border have public safety impacts in their respective counties.

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Dealing with outdated equipment is not only a headache to manage, but can also prove dangerous in an emergency.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other life safety systems, as well as highlighting options in detention security technologies available to turn your outdated facility into a more efficient, safer, and code compliant operation.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

Description: Officer wellness has become a “hot topic” in the law enforcement community. And justifiably so. However, many agencies, from command staff to front line officers, lack a clear understanding of what a wellness program encompasses. This seminar will provide a brief overview of the many aspects of a wellness program and give audience members suggestions and resources they can take back to their respective agencies.The panel members will utilize their decades of collective experience to discuss some of the primary aspects of law enforcement mental health. 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.
