Please join us for the PERF/MCCA Annual Meeting, to be held on Tuesday-Friday, June 2-5, in San Francisco.  All registrants are welcome to attend all meetings, sessions, and receptions sponsored by PERF and MCCA during the conference. 

This year’s Annual Meeting promises to be especially lively and interesting, because there are so many big issues in policing that we need to discuss.  To mention one example:

Facial Recognition technology is taking off like a rocket in many departments.  Facial Recognition  is tremendously helpful for identifying suspects, supporting police investigations, and preventing major crimes.  However, adoption of the technology is moving much faster than the laws and policies needed to control it, so some cities are simply banning it.  The policing profession needs to decide on reasonable limits to protect people’s legitimate privacy interests, or else this technology will be taken off the table in more cities. 

The PERF/MCCA Annual Meeting will be an opportunity for police chiefs, sheriffs, and other leaders to get together and map out plans for getting ahead of the game on facial recognition and other issues.  

PERF and MCCA will also have workshops and receptions where you can meet with colleagues, share information about what’s happening in your department, and catch up with friends.
