You will notice that we have identified which classes are suitable for our CODY Public Safety Suite customers and our COBRA.net customers. If you are a CODY PSS customer who is also a part of a COBRA.net consortium, we welcome you to register for classes in both tracks. However, we encourage our COBRA.net-only customers to stay within the COBRA.net TRACK for continuity of learning.

NOTE: Conference badges are required for entrance to all conference session and events. Badges are also required for Guest Speakers and Exhibitors. Guest badges may be purchased for the Welcome Reception and the CODY After Hours Party.

This class will help to navigate and streamline your mission with best practice tips from our CODY experts and also share tips on how and when to engage CODY support. COBRA TRACK

    Dr. Jerry Ratcliffe: Intelligence-led Policing Methodology and Implementation Strategies
    Red Room

    What is intelligence-led policing?  Where did it come from and why do we need it?  Intelligence-led policing is not just about criminal informants and counter-terrorism, but instead a business model for addressing the most pressing crime and disorder problems that plague local and state policing.  Crime reduction can be achieved through a smart combination of targeting serious, repeat offenders, and the strategic management of crime problems.  However, this has proven to be quite a challenge to the traditional police model. This session will define ILP, demonstrate the role of intelligence within this policing model, and use intelligence case studies to illuminate why NYPD Police Chief Bill Bratton wrote “Intelligence-led policing has the potential to be the most important law enforcement innovation of the twenty-first century”.  You will leave with a clearer idea of the origins and details of intelligence-led policing, and how agencies can become truly intelligence-led.
