The use of video surveillance in policing has a long and established history. However, recent events involving officers and citizens, fueled by the Internet and proliferation of social media, have converged to catapult body-worn cameras (BWCs) and other video monitoring techniques into the public consciousness. As the numerous benefits associated with BWCs, in-car video and the evidence it provides comes to light, the law enforcement community and the public they serve are reaching a consensus that BWCs and other video applications are a core component of 21st Century policing and beyond.

As the demand for such video technology increases exponentially over the next several years, police departments and other law enforcement agencies must find a way to fund the implementation of BWC programs. A comprehensive BWC program is more than purchasing cameras, it involves the crafting and implementation of policies and procedures, officer training, digital evidence management and public outreach.

Join Grants Office, LLC and WatchGuard Video as we explore various grant programs that will fund BWCs, as well as other solutions such as in-car video. In addition to gaining an understanding of the funding available and tips to secure grants, participants will learn about the latest and greatest video technology available to public safety agencies.

Healthcare providers currently function in an environment where medical inflation and increased financial risk combine to create razor thin operating margins. In order to survive, it is essential for these providers to understand federal funding priorities and effectively target grant money to fill in the gaps. This is especially true when it comes to the increasing transparency in healthcare that is characterized by a vast amount of data that needs to be securely stored, shared and accessed across a wide array of impacted stakeholders, including researchers, payors, public health officials and providers. Data is essential whether you are researching a cure for cancer, documenting a telemedicine encounter in a remote area, storing lecture content for health professional students, or using analytics to identify patient populations that need comprehensive chronic disease management or are at-risk for hospital readmissions.

Today, stakeholders often start collecting large volumes of data for internal use or a specific purpose. Suddenly, a new state law is passed or a federal regulation is put in place that requires such data to quickly be reported and shared in any number of different ways. In order to thrive in such a fluid regulatory and operational environment, these various stakeholders must find a way to fund and plan for agility in an era that demands flexibility.

Join Grants Office and special guests from NetApp for a look at how project-based grants may be used to increase the agility and flexibility of your healthcare data. The session will include a discussion around specific technology solutions and best-practices for building them into a project that is grant-friendly.

Whether your community is urban or not, some areas of cities and towns just have more crime than others, and much of a community’s policing, justice, and community support resources are typically spent there. Successful programs and technologies have proven to reduce crime and improve police effectiveness in these hot spots, but they can be prohibitively expensive to implement. However, there are grant programs that can share some of the costs associated with reducing crime – by expanding community programs that work with those at-risk of offending (or re-offending), improving monitoring in particularly active zones, and expanding access to relevant, timely data by law enforcement and court officials.

Join Grants Office CEO Michael Paddock and special guests from NetApp for a discussion of the funding sources, technologies, and programs that are helping to reduce crime in communities across the country, and a review of some tips to make your proposal more competitive.

In spite of a number of high-profile incidents of violence in schools, as well as many that are not reported broadly, funding for school safety has been a moving target in recent years. Promising programs like COPS Secure our Schools and the Readiness and Emergency Management for Schools programs have come and gone,  but new programs from the Department of Education this year have the potential to make a significant impact on student health and safety across the country.
 
Join Grants Office CEO Michael Paddock and special guests from NetApp as we review the requirements and characteristics of these new programs, how they fit with popular approaches to achieving a safe school environment (including several technology-based approaches), and what other existing programs can also support safety in your school.

Although the Affordable Care Act accelerated the move to collect, store, distribute, and analyze healthcare data, the use of health information in clinical settings had already been expanding rapidly for more than a decade. In support of that trend, grant funding, albeit limited before 2009, from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality led the way toward wider adoption of health IT by the provider community. Today, health data is viewed by funders as more than purely informational. It is a tool with the potential to change behaviors and lead to dramatic improvements in the quality of care.

Join Grants Office CEO Michael Paddock and special guests from NetApp for a look at some of the data-intensive healthcare projects that are being funded today and the grant programs from HHS and others that could fund your project as well.
