  • Training Time:

Law enforcement across the country are working to fulfill the President’s Police Data Initiative (PDI) to improve public trust and police legitimacy. Invaluable tools to realize this goal are geographic information systems (GIS) and open data technology which communities are utilizing to protect lives, property, and critical infrastructure.

Furthermore, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Homeland Infrastructure Foundation Level Data (HIFLD) provides national foundation-level geospatial data that can be used to support community preparedness, resiliency, research, and more.

Join federal and local government leaders, GIS technologists and developers on Thursday, August 11 from 5 – 8pm in Arlington, VA to learn how communities and law enforcement agencies can:

  • Get the most out of their authoritative location data and use HIFLD data.
  • Configure and deploy maps and apps for public consumption and safety.
  • Take advantage of ArcGIS Open Data Initiative for Law Enforcement.

When: Thursday, August 11 from 5:00 – 8:00pm
Where: Esri R&D (1001 19th St N #910, Arlington, VA 22209) Parking is limited, please plan to use metro. Rosslyn metro station is 2 blocks away.
