Public safety technologies, processes and people don’t necessarily mesh perfectly; they use many disparate processes and systems. Each person’s function has its own goals and objectives, and its own unique challenges. The technology and processes are generally designed and built for specific roles or purposes within the criminal justice workflow. In fact, in many situations, there can be conflict or misunderstanding between the goals of these organizations. We all have a better understanding of the criminal justice system by learning from the individuals who are involved and work to support an aspect of its daily function. Each person involved in the criminal justice workflow needs better insights into the technology challenges, the emotions, and the level of trust of others, outside of any particular heat-of-the-moment situation. You are going to hear each of them talk about the challenges in their area and where they see opportunities to improve the outcomes. The empathy gained through this open conversation can lead to better decisions on the use of technology, processes, and behavior, and ultimately better outcomes, for public safety and criminal justice. The panelists will discuss the perspectives of: • Victims • PSAP/911 • First responders • Law enforcement • District Attorney To build trust, technology automation and processes should respect the rights of community members as well as the rights of law enforcement. The panelists will discuss their personal and professional experiences with the criminal justice workflow, particularly regarding domestic violence situations and the ethical considerations for the application of technology. Primal safety is a universal and God-given right. If we work together to understand how to create bridges of safety, we as a nation will indeed be safer.
