2011 NATIONAL PUBLIC SAFETY TECHNOLOGY CONFERENCE

2011 NATIONAL PUBLIC SAFETY TECHNOLOGY CONFERENCE
“Coping with Contraband Cell Phones in Correctional Settings/Navigating the Narrowbanding Mandate”

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and California Technology Agency are proud to announce and invite you to the co-hosted 2011 National Public Safety Technology Conference – “Coping with Contraband Cell Phones in Correctional Settings/Navigating the Narrowbanding Mandate.”

The purpose of the 2011 National Public Safety Technology Conference is to discuss a multitude of cellular telephone interdiction methods with corrections officials from other states within the United States, as well as county and city jail law enforcement agencies. In addition, there will be a robust discussion regarding the interoperability of public safety radios and the Federal Communications Commissions’ narrowbanding compliance date of January 1, 2013.
The conference will consist of both a morning and afternoon session. The morning session will include policy makers discussing the ramifications of these problems and their impact on public safety as well as key note speakers sharing their personal experiences with contraband cell phones. The afternoon session will consist of two separate discussions: “Coping with Contraband Cell Phones in Correctional Settings” (Session A); and “Navigating the Narrowbanding Mandate” (Session B) hosted by the California Technology Agency.
Conference attendees will receive a detailed agenda during morning registration the day of the event.

The 2011 National Public Safety Technology Conference will be held on March 10, 2011 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., with registration beginning at 7:30 a.m. at the California Secretary of State’s Building (Auditorium), located at 1500 11th Street, Sacramento, California, 95814.
