Spring 2017 2017 Mid-Winter Training Conference & Exposition Recap

The 2017 Mid-Winter Training Conference & Exposition was held at the Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando, Florida, January 8-10. With over 200 members in attendance, the conference provided not only a time for training and the exposition, but also an opportunity to network with peers. The FPCA was proud to welcome 29 new members to the conference where we provided them with a helpful orientation to ensure their time at the conference was a success.

Opening ceremonies began Monday morning, followed by the multiple trainings offered that day. “Creating the Exemplary Police Academy: A Value Based Framework” was the first training presented by Michael Josephson from the Josephson Institute of Ethics. His presentation covered community-serving policing agencies and other topics such as independence versus accountability and governance, oversight, and man- agement. “Honoring Our Past and Forging our Future” was the next training that was hosted by a panel of past FPCA presidents. The last training of the day featured Dr. Ray Surette from the University of Central Florida and was entitled “Performance Crime and Justice.” Dr. Surette discussed how the evolution of per- formance has effected crime, law enforcement and the judicial system.

conference. The FPCA provided an exhibitor training “Doing Business With a Florida Public Entity: Know Your Responsibilities Under Florida’s Public Rec- ords Laws” presented by Leonard Dietzen of Rumberger, Kirk, Caldwell.
