Eliminating Risk and Liability in Records


Information management is a function in law enforcement with increasing levels of risk and liability. Lawsuits stemming from mismanagement of records and data are on the rise and usually result from a lack of quality control and planning, backlogs of pending requests for records, insufficient policy and training, and faulty crime data. Learn the inherent risks and liability that exist in Records and how to eliminate it. Attendees will participate in strategic risk analysis and prevention, and learn how to implement the approaches needed to protect the agency. You’ll receive various resources/tools for agency- and self-assessment risk analysis, measuring key performance indicators and keeping track of productivity.
