One valuable way to acquire timely intelligence about what is going on in our dynamic and ever-changing industry is by selectively participating in core industry events.

If your company is looking to either expand within or move into the Federal Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice space whether in the U.S. Department of Justice or the U. S. Department of Homeland Security, the upcoming PSC Law Enforcement Conference is a must-attend event.

The PSC Law Enforcement Conference is being held on February 25, 2020, at the Westin Arlington Gateway hotel. To optimize your day, the program runs from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Following the official program, there is an optional luncheon which provides the chance to keep networking and gain even more insights into this important customer set via industry leaders and PSC senior staff.

What is particularly insightful about the PSC Law Enforcement Conference is that it gives audience members both the big picture of what is going on in these agencies from speakers such as the DHS Chief Human Capital Officer Angela Bailey and Jeffrey Sallet, the Associate Executive Assistant Director, Finance and Facilities Division. Knowing the big picture helps provide great background information for relevant customer call meetings you likely have scheduled in the coming months. These Government leaders set the stage for our mission-focused discussions: Drugs and the Opioid Crisis as well as Innovation Labs and the National Vetting Center. These in-depth panel discussions will provide valuable customer background information which is likely pertinent to any upcoming RFPs.

We will once again have our FBI Industry Day panel featuring a number of key Bureau Contracting Officers. As an added benefit for small businesses, we have invited both the DOJ and DHS Small Business leaders to join us for discussions during the networking sessions.

Understanding what our potential Government clients are thinking is a valuable way to stay ahead of agency trends in Federal Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice management, technology and acquisition. Staying informed means staying engaged -- smartly. Hundreds of your industry colleagues will be attending the PSC Law Enforcement Conference on February 25, 2020. We hope you will be able to join us too!
