We are excited to invite you to join more than six hundred public safety professionals from around the State of Utah for the Ninth Annual Utah Governor’s Public Safety Summit. The conference will feature two days of outstanding presentations and workshops on this year’s theme, “Recharge Forward, Unplug and Reboot” highlighting the need for all of us to recharge our energy and enjoy our work. This year we are joining forces with the Intelligence Liaison Officer Conference to increase our coordination and share costs. We will also have vendors there to show you the latest in industry tools to help you in your important work and a static display to tour new equipment and technology.
Our keynote speakers are: Chief John King Provo Police Chief, who was involved with the Washington DC Sniper incident; John Njord, former UDOT Director to share his insight on public service and successful project management; and Tom Gorman (invited) from Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area in Colorado, to discuss the impact of marijuana legalization for medical and recreational use in Colorado. We will end our conference with Robert Kirby, famous Salt Lake Tribune Humorist to put everything in perspective and help us see the humor in work and life. We have many more great speakers lined up to share their expertise and successes and hope you will join us for another great Summit.
