LEIT Section Founders’ Technology Recognition Program

Created in honor of the section’s founding members, G. Thomas Steele and Harlin McEwen, the LEIT Founders’ Technology Recognition Program is designed to honor section members’ extraordinary dedication, ingenuity, and achievements in technology-based initiatives that benefit the law enforcement profession.

Tom and Harlin dedicated their careers to the public safety community by advancing technology in homeland security, information sharing, and communications interoperability. They were forward thinking in co-founding the IACP Law Enforcement Information Management Section (now LEIT) that provides law enforcement executives, IT managers, and technology specialists with a forum in which to share information, best practices, and lessons learned regarding state-of-the-art and emerging law enforcement and public safety technologies.

The Harlin McEwen Innovation in Law Enforcement Communications and Interoperability Technology category recognizes a section member whose superior achievement in implementing communications or interoperability technology has enhanced law enforcement’s access to mission critical voice, data, and video communications.
