Here’s our recap from the IACP Conference 2018!
PRG has a long-standing affiliation with the Law Enforcement community, making this event one of our calendar highlights. We get the opportunity to connect with the community we support, further understand their challenges and merge ideas with other exhibitors.
A prime example of exhibitors coming together and sharing ideas to offer complete solutions to our customers is the PopShield. This lightweight folding, ballistic shield proved popular at our booth. We received valuable questions and feedback from officers, such as “can it be fitted with a flashlight?” and “can we mount it in our squad car?”. Taking that on board, we got together with fellow-exhibitor, Coast – LED Flashlight Manufacturers – to start developing a concept design for accessories for the shield.
As worthwhile as the IACP Conference proves to be for PRG, more importantly, this four-day event serves as a way for the international law enforcement community to participate in professional development sessions, learn from their peers and exchange ideas equipping them for ongoing success. More than 15,000 people attend from over 70 countries. Highlights included workshops on Community-Police Relations and Public Trust, Police Recruitment and Culture, and Officer Safety and Wellness.
The 2019 IACP Annual Conference and Exposition will be held in Chicago, IL on October 26-29. For more information, see https://www.theiacpconference.org/
