The next webinar in the Public Safety Innovation Series by Envisage Technologies.
With information easier to share than ever before – whether through email, texts, social media, or otherwise – recent cheating incidents involving public safety professionals serve as a grim reminder that testing procedures have not kept pace with advances in technology. The high stakes involved in public safety means that when testing integrity is not maintained, lives and dollars are at risk.
Join Chief Clive Savacool and Gerry Roberts, J.D., as they reflect on recent scandals, discuss how agencies are reacting, and summarize the waves of litigation that cheating can create.
