Toronto Technology Summit
On Wednesday, June 8, 2016, Axon Public Safety Canada will be hosting a Technology Summit at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel near Toronto International Airport. Join a group of law enforcement leaders and technology experts as they help answer the question: how will accelerating technology affect public safety? This event will provide insightful discussion and networking around the subject of technology's impact on public safety professionals. In addition to discussing the recent announcement by the Montréal Police Service to conduct a pilot project involving body cameras and cloud storage, topics covered will include:
- New technologies that can be used for good (or evil)
- The Future of Digital Evidence Management
- Understanding Cloud Computing and Software as a Service including cyber security; and
- Best practices in video capture devices including in-car, interview room and body-worn camera solutions

Canadian Safety and Security Program (CSSP) Call for Proposals now Open!
The Canadian Safety and Security Program (CSSP) is a federally-funded program that enhances Canada's public safety and security through investments in science and technology (S&T). More specifically, the CSSP strengthens Canada’s ability to anticipate, prevent, mitigate, prepare for, respond to and recover from natural disasters, serious accidents, crime and terrorism through the convergence of S&T with policy, operations and intelligence (seehttp://www.science.gc.ca/cssp).
The 2016 Call for Proposals was launched May 3 and will close on 13 June 2016. Complete details are available at:https://buyandsell.gc.ca/procurement-data/tender-notice/PW-16-00731441.
Get Ready for CAUSE IV
In late April, the Canada-U.S. Enhanced Resiliency Experiment (CAUSE) IV experiment will take place between Port Huron, Michigan, and Sarnia, Ontario. The Blue Water Bridge, the second busiest crossing between the U.S. and Canada, will serve as the primary site of the emergency scenario. The experiment will consist of two crucial vignettes. The first part will test the interoperability of paramedic and health services by fielding cross-border broadband and wireless networks that examine voice communications, electrocardiogram tracing, live video, patient records and overall situational awareness (such as vehicle tracking) over the course of the emergency scenario. The second part of the experiment will pilot a binational capability to automate and link models that currently operate independently for alerts, situational awareness, citizen engagement and mutual aid planning efforts. These benchmarks will be part of an integrated and semi-automated process and capability enabling emergency managers to more precisely and efficiently work together.
