BJA Regional Information Sharing Conferences a Success


Domingo S. Herraiz, Director, BJA, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. DOJ presents welcoming remarks at the third BJA Regional Information Sharing Conference held in Minneapolis in March.
Highlighting the latest solutions in justice and public safety information sharing, BJA Regional Conferences took place in California, Texas, Minnesota and Florida from November 2006 through June 2007.

Sponsored by the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), U.S. Department of Justice, GTTAC, and SEARCH, the conferences offered the 460 attendees sessions on successfully planning, managing, and implementing technology solutions for information sharing systems.

Discussions ranged from key developments in privacy and security policies, to coordinating broad-based multi-agency initiatives, to the latest technologies and standards, and much more. Speakers included practitioners, policymakers, technologists, managers, and subject-matter experts from throughout the nation.

"This conference series demonstrated SEARCH's leadership in identifying and disseminating best practices across the nation. By recruiting practitioners and technology leaders from the field to speak at the conferences, we were able to deliver relevant content grounded in real-world experience. Not many conferences address both the challenges and successes in our community so well," said Scott Came, Director of Systems and Technology.
