LEIM Section Subgroup on LinkedIn LinkedIn

The LEIM Section of IACP has created a Subgroup of IACP on LinkedIn. The LEIM Section Subgroup is open to all IACP LEIM Section members. If you are not already a member of the LEIM Section, Join Today!

The LEIM Section Subgroup is our initial effort to build a dynamic community of practice among law enforcement executives, operational managers, and information technology professionals. The primary objectives are to enable LEIM Section members to share best practices, lessons learned, and issues of common concern. We will feature discussions of new and emerging technologies, evolving policies and practices, and challenges faced and overcome in planning for, implementing, and managing technology. Join the LEIM Section Subgroup of IACP and actively participate in substantive discussions with your peers.
