Public safety funding has changed over the past few years. Grant programs for expanding law enforcement, communications, homeland security, Tribal justice, and emergency management are all being referred from different sources, with different priorities every year.

Join Grants Office CEO Michael Paddock and special guests from Cisco as we share the available resources for public safety, tips for maximizing your share, and fundable technologies that are transforming the work of police departments, courts, and correctional institutions.
