The Congress will showcase the vast array of technology and education available to public safety professionals in the global arena.

Delegates will learn the latest best practices and research in educational sessions led by international experts including Director of Operations Neil Kirby, who will present on behalf of DCAS. His session, "The end user: What I want," will be on Wednesday, May 2, 2012.
"We are honored to have DCAS return as a strategic partner," said APCO Global Alliance Chair Geoff Spring. "The participation of the DCAS staff, with their expertise and experience, helps to elevate the Congress to a new dimension. Having a member of the DCAS team present at the Congress is a welcome addition to the program. We are pleased to continue our relationship with them."
