CANCELLED: 2020 Annual Conference

Posted: Apr. 8, 2020

Due to the increasing health concerns and escalating developments that have occurred over the last several weeks regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, including the state of emergency in several states, the CACP Board of Directors has decided that the Annual Conference scheduled for June 28-30, 2020, will no longer take place.

As difficult as this decision is, the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, presenters, volunteers, and staff remain our top priority. The CACP Board and staff thank all of you for understanding this difficult decision and we hope to see you at our next conference.

If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to us at [email protected].

 

Personnel (Employment) Testing During the COVID-19 Crisis - Best Practices from Stanard & Associates, Inc.

Posted: Apr. 7, 2020

Over the last few weeks, Stanard & Associates have been fielding calls and emails from agencies seeking guidance on how best to move forward with their new hire and promotional testing processes. To help departments, they created an informational piece. Click here to access.

During this time, many departments are finding it critical to keep their staffing levels up during the pandemic and traditional in-person/onsite testing methods are not able to be conducted due to shelter in place restrictions and/or departments closing their facilities to the public. Perhaps the most important take away in the above communication is that last week, Stanard & Associates launched a NEW form of the POST exam (Form E) which is offered exclusively online and allows agencies to provide usernames and password to their candidates via email. With this new form, candidates can take the exam in the comfort of their own home with the tests scored by S&A and results sent to the authorized department contact. This new testing option has been extremely well received by agencies looking for a solution to keep their hiring processes on track.

Webinar: Confronting the Threat from Pandemic Disinformation: What Law Enforcement Needs to Know

Posted: Apr. 3, 2020

When: April 7th, 2020
1:00pm – 3:00pm ET
 

In today’s information milieu, the way our citizens view facts, define certainty, and classify information previously shared through print, the town square, or landline no longer applies nor adheres to traditional rules. These fundamental changes have made it easier for domestic and foreign threat actors to exploit, replace and amplify vital information for the sole purpose to sow discord, push foreign nations’ policy agendas, cause panic and ultimately undermine confidence and public trust in the core institutions of our democracy. As the Coronavirus Pandemic intensifies it will create a new, broader and potentially perilous disinformation environment stirring in its wake distrust, deception, and calls for violence. Extremist groups, including white supremacists, are now pointing to ‘theories’ and works of fiction to motivate individuals to take violent action. As disinformation grows law enforcement will be called upon to react to disinformation in more informed and effective ways.

Join The Center on Policing on April 7th for an informational webinar that focuses on case studies of recent disinformation campaigns, tools and best practices to effectively identify disinformation and examples for how to provide a counter narrative to mitigate impact on your jurisdictions. We will also discuss how to increase your investment in “open-source” intelligence gathering, suggesting combing and analyzing what’s available to anyone—such as the internet. Additionally, the forum will provide advice for having either you as chief law enforcement officer or your spokespersons navigate through and/or expose falsities and methodologies for countering the narrative. That which includes uncovering and exposing publicly disinformation being spread by adversaries and sources touting them—this is and remains a public-facing role that is extraordinary but vital in the modern era of influence campaigns.
