Welcome and Opening Keynote- The Five Pillars of a Successful Organization

With public safety evolving so quickly, it can be easy for leaders to feel like they’re constantly chasing the next challenge. Lexipol co-founder and risk management expert Gordon Graham has identified “Five Pillars” that are essential to success in public safety agencies, no matter the specific issue faced. Join Gordon for an introduction to the Five Pillars and to learn how a failure in one or more of the pillars can lead to tragedy.

Use of Force Policy in 2020: Informing and Engaging Concerned Stakeholders

The national dialogue on police policy, especially as it pertains to use of force, has evolved and increased in intensity. Today, that conversation includes voices calling for reform to address systemic bias and excessive force as well as voices advocating for guidance that reflects the realities of police work. At Lexipol, we have been engaged in the challenging and inspiring work of creating law enforcement policies for nearly two decades. This session explores Lexipol’s current policy positions on sensitive use of force issues, information about how our policies were developed, and strategies law enforcement professionals can use to engage community members in the shared goal of creating safer communities.

Why Fire Departments Get Sued

This information will help fire service personnel of all ranks better understand the legal risks they are facing—and focus on how to prevent such risks from taking root in their departments. Attendees will learn the top four reasons career and volunteer fire departments face legal proceedings, key differences between career and volunteer fire department liability and why limiting liability starts with limiting harm.

Training in a Pandemic - 5 Ways to Use Online Learning to Achieve Your Training Objectives

The coronavirus pandemic has arguably been the most disruptive event for the public safety industry in our lifetimes. Nowhere has the impact been larger than in how agencies train.

In this session, we'll explore ways in which you can use online training to safely and affordably accomplish your training objectives – even in the face of a pandemic.
