Rural communities face unique law enforcement challenges in terms of practical responses. While all law enforcement agencies have resource allocation challenges, the environments of rural agencies are different than the urban environments.  This webinar will present strategies for the rural departments to obtain needed resources and to better access and utilize technology. The relevant criteria for determining cost-effective solutions for law enforcement agencies will also be discussed.

Attendees will learn about:

  • the critical environmental challenges of rural law enforcement
  • the use of technology that may be effective in rural communities
  • cost-effective solutions for law enforcement strategies in rural communities.
