Video evidence can be extraordinarily useful in investigations and prosecutions. Of course, you have to have the video infrastructure in place before you need it, and that can be difficult to achieve both in terms of funding the equipment and infrastructure that are needed as well as coordinating and communicating with the other jurisdictions, agencies, community groups, and elected officials that have a stake in how multimedia evidence is collected and used. Fortunately, federal and state grants can help offset both the capital expense of the equipment and the additional costs of planning, policy development, public communication, and training, and this grantscast will cover the sources of that funding and strategies for making the most of what’s available.

Join Grants Office and special guests from Unicom and NetApp as we review the landscape of funding for video surveillance and provide tips for developing a comprehensive approach to deployment that will attract more funding and create fewer headaches down the road.

The landscape of modern law enforcement leverages a wide array of video tools, including video surveillance, in-car and body-worn cameras. The reasons public agencies adopt such video technology are much the same as those that prompted the first runs of videotape-based surveillance in the 1960s – namely, the expansion of monitoring and evidence-collection capabilities. Today, video technology is considered a crucial tool for law enforcement activities – particularly as its availability and list of use-cases continue to expand.

As demand for such video technology increases, law enforcement and other public safety agencies must find a way to pay for upfront and ongoing maintenance costs. A comprehensive program is more than purchasing cameras; it involves the crafting and implementation of policies and procedures, officer training, digital evidence management and public outreach.

Join Grants Office as we explore the Body-worn Camera Policy and Implementation Program from strategy to application to highlights of past years’ winning projects.

For years, grant funding for K-12 school safety had been largely reactionary - meaning, an incident needed to occur before funds were made available. The tragic loss of life at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in early 2018, and the subsequent March for Our Lives rally in Washington D.C., however, acted as a tipping point. With a nation crying out that "enough is enough" both the US Congress and several state's legislatures have taken action to appropriate grant funding for preventative school safety solutions.

Join Grants Office and special guests from NetApp and Tech Data as we cover state and federal agencies with grant funding specifically for school safety initiatives, including the open School Violence Prevention Program.

As the numerous benefits associated with BWCs, in-car video and the evidence it provides comes to light, the law enforcement community and the public they serve are reaching a consensus that BWCs and other video applications are a core component of 21st Century policing and beyond.

As the demand for such video increases exponentially over the next several years, police departments and other law enforcement agencies must find a way to fund the implementation of BWC programs. A comprehensive BWC program is more than purchasing cameras, as it involves the crafting and implementation of policies and procedures, officer training, digital evidence management and public outreach.

Join Grants Office, LLC and WatchGuard Video as we explore various grant programs that will fund BWCs, as well as other solutions such as in-car video. In addition to gaining an understanding of the funding available and tips to secure grants, participants will learn about the latest and greatest video technology available to public safety agencies.

Healthcare providers currently function in an environment where medical inflation and increased financial risk combine to create razor thin operating margins. In order to survive, it is essential for these providers to understand federal funding priorities and effectively target grant money to fill in the gaps. This is especially true when it comes to the increasing transparency in healthcare that is characterized by a vast amount of data that needs to be securely stored, shared and accessed across a wide array of impacted stakeholders, including researchers, payors, public health officials and providers. Data is essential whether you are researching a cure for cancer, documenting a telemedicine encounter in a remote area, storing lecture content for health professional students, or using analytics to identify patient populations that need comprehensive chronic disease management or are at-risk for hospital readmissions.

Today, stakeholders often start collecting large volumes of data for internal use or a specific purpose. Suddenly, a new state law is passed or a federal regulation is put in place that requires such data to quickly be reported and shared in any number of different ways. In order to thrive in such a fluid regulatory and operational environment, these various stakeholders must find a way to fund and plan for agility in an era that demands flexibility.

Join Grants Office and special guests from NetApp for a look at how project-based grants may be used to increase the agility and flexibility of your healthcare data. The session will include a discussion around specific technology solutions and best-practices for building them into a project that is grant-friendly.

WATCH THE REPLAY HERE: Grants that can fund technology in its many forms can also fund measures to secure that technology and the data it contains, but for whatever reason, IT security is often left out of grant budgets and as a result left either to the grant recipient to pay or not integrated at all – either of which can leave the organization vulnerable to security breaches and the liability that goes along with them!

Join Grants Office and special guests from Century Link as we review strategies for building security into your organization’s grant proposals and a look at some of the most technology-friendly grant programs in government and education. We’ll also highlight VMware’s new Disaster Recovery as a Service and other solutions that can help you keep your data safe and available.
