Private and Public partnerships: the importance of cooperation for protecting the USA

This year’s conference puts its emphasis on the partnership between the Public and Private sector that will make the difference in confronting the many threats from both criminal and terror networks over the next decade.

Against an increasing background of the public’s involvement, such as “See something, Say something”, how can Law Enforcement, Fire, Emergency Medical and Emergency management work more efficiently and effectively with the private sector to ensure better public safety for all?

SSI is proud to bring the event back to Florida after several years in Las Vegas and to one of the most beautiful resorts in the State: the Gaylord Palms, 6000 W. Osceola Parkway in Kissimmee Florida. You can stay for as little as $99.00 a night Government rates. Please call hotel reservations office directly at 407-586-2000 to ensure you receive the rates and services available for the SSI Conference group.

Who should attend this event?

Security professionals responsible for the security of facilities, venues, hotels, transportation and educational institutions have the opportunity of networking with Law Enforcement, Fire, Rescue, Emergency management, the Military and other First Responder agencies. This network is the strong link in the chain; the ability to call someone and know what you can expect or not expect to help is vital in an emergency situation.
