Safe and effective emergency management is one of the most important duties for states and localities. Whether it’s police, firefighters, EMS responders – or even corrections and rehabilitation officers – maintaining public safety is a cornerstone of responsible local government.

One often-overlooked aspect of modernizing emergency response is optimized staffing. Managing the public safety workforce is an extremely complex process. Corrections officers and first responders are highly skilled and highly trained individuals in a high-stress, high-turnover environment that must be staffed 24/7/365. These workers are typically subject to union rules and other stringent labor regulations. Yet, incredibly, many local governments still rely on pen and paper to manage staffing for these critical functions.

Join us June 8 at 11 PT / 2 ET for an extremely valuable webinar on the technologies that can help modernize staffing for the public safety and corrections workforce. You’ll learn:

  • Front-line success stories from public officials, including how the Miami-Dade County Corrections and Rehabilitation Department advanced its approaches to staffing
  • How a modern staffing strategy provides visibility into shift-bidding, extra duty scheduling, emergency response staffing, overtime, fatigue management and more
  • How to leverage reporting technologies to create management dashboards that guide day-to-day decision-making
