    Artificial Intelligence (AI) presents the rage of opportunities for law enforcement to improve efficiency and effectiveness in the delivery of a range of services. AI applications like facial recognition can be utilized to facilitate investigations and assist in identifying persons of interest. AI can also be utilized to identify patterns of behavior offer the prospect of helping to identify officers at risk. The promise of AI is not without controversy. As practitioners look to apply AI to a wide range of issues confronting police, there is growing concern over its use.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

    • Understand how artificial intelligence functions and the challenges in its application
    • Apply some of the developing analytical frameworks to the application of AI in law enforcement.

              CPTED: Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design. This idea was first postulated by Oscar Newman and Tim Crowe on different continents. It is a concept that uses subliminal clues and provides a base on which to build rather than go directly into "fortressing," as many traditional Security concepts do. It is sometimes a better path in areas such as higher education where target hardening is limited by use and purpose.

              LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

              • The history behind CPTED and what drove its development.

                        Police response to violent crime and high threat behavior, although infrequent for some agencies,remains a critical core responsibility for every officer. This responsibility comes with high risk and potential bad outcomes that are accepted by our profession and the communities we serve. In contrast, there are many high-profile examples of police officers using force during relatively minor incidents resulting in tragedy. As law enforcement executives, we have a responsibility to take steps to minimize the possibility of low risk, non-violent police interactions ending in tragedy. Taking such steps benefits everyone involved and, when done thoughtfully, becomes a foundational base of a Department’s culture. If police leaders don’t continually evolve with the expectations of the communities we serve, others will eventually force us to! The Committee recommends the ILACP Board of Officers consider endorsing these SAFE Principles and support further efforts to educate membership and expand conversation and exploration of Illinois Law Enforcement in context of these principles.

                        LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
                        S.A.F.E. Principles for Common Calls for Service

                        • Slow down – If it’s not violent and the threat is low, you have time. Time, properly utilized, will lead to better decisions and better outcomes.
                        • Assess what you know - How often do you arrive at a call to discover the information you were initially given was incomplete or incorrect? This affects your decision making.
                        • Formulate and act – We make better decisions and often have better outcomes when we work together as a team. Most police interactions have several possible resolutions. Deciding which
                          course of action is best for everyone involved requires analysis and careful thought.
                        • Evolve – We have a responsibility to continue our professional evolution in our approach to routine interactions. Evolving requires an appreciation of updated laws and community expectations, with an objective to always do what is right for all involved.

                          The Northern Illinois Critical Stress Management Team (NICISM) provides immediate comprehensive crisis response interventions (e.g., critical incident stress debriefs) to 1st responder agencies in the 9-county Chicago metropolitan area after they have experienced a critical/traumatic incident (e.g., multiple fatality, LODD, OIS, etc.).
                          The NICISM has been serving the Chicago metropolitan area for 34 years and is made up of active and retired 1st responders (e.g., police, firefighters, chaplains, therapists, etc.) who are trained and experienced in providing critical incident services to 1st responders.

                          Since the NICISM is an entirely volunteer, non-profit 501.c.3 organization, there is no cost to the agency for our services.

                          Critical incident stress management services are vitally necessary in helping to develop and maintain the knowledge and skills of 1st responders to cope with the stress and trauma that they regularly incur as a result of working in a high-stress environment and being involved in repeated critical incidents.
                          In this presentation, we will briefly discuss the mental health issues that are emblematic of the 1st responder work culture and lifestyles and explain the critical incident services (i.e., interventions) we provide, and how these services are beneficial for you and your personnel.

                          LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

                          • Describe the NICISM Team and our mission.
                          • Explain the services provided to 1st responder agencies by NICISM.
                          • Discuss stress, critical incidents, and trauma and how they impact the overall health and well-being of 1st responders.
                          • Briefly explain the Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) processes and interventions that are available for 1st responder agencies.
                          • How to access and contact the NICISM Team.

                            The DuPage County Arson Task Force is relied upon to assist many agencies with suspicious fires that occur in the county. Specially trained arson dogs often assist fire and police investigators with determining how fires started. While investigators could often take hours or days to sift through evidence, an arson dog can search a building in a matter of minutes.

                            LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

                            • Learn the process in which arson dogs are trained.
                            • Arson dogs are able to identify between 30-60 different types of hydrocarbons, which are used to start fires.
                            • Discover how arson dogs can use “scent discrimination.”
