Additionally, we will outline response measures that employees can take if they suspect that they have fallen victim to a BEC attack, including reporting the incident to their IT department and law enforcement. By the end of this presentation, you will have a better understanding of how to protect yourself and your county from BEC attacks.

Creative Options for Recruitment and Retention of Law Enforcement Personnel
Speakers: Mr. Darren Jackson, Senior Law Enforcement Consultant

Regardless of size, county law enforcement agencies are struggling to attract and retain quality employees. Shortages of peace officers and jailers are taking a toll; not only does staffing shortages decrease the ability to serve the public and increase liability concerns, fatigue, frustration and burnout of existing employees exacerbate the problem. This session will encourage participants to discuss the problem and provide solutions that have worked in other counties.
