IACPtv will again cover IACP 2011!
After an overwhelmingly positive response from attendees, IACP 2011 will again offer access to IACPtv. This venture serves to raise the visibility of the hard work of our members and to provide an opportunity to learn about law enforcement executives and their communities making a difference.
This venture has two features: “Thought Leadership” and “Conference News.” Thought Leadership is a five-minute film segment highlighting a community’s best practices and features a case study of the community. Conference News is a daily program that will be broadcast at IACP 2011 in Chicago this October.
These two news programs will be shown throughout McCormick Place West, in hotel rooms on a dedicated IACPtv channel, and online through the IACP’s own WebTV channel. IACPtv will bring to life key issues behind the conference, including daily “behind the scenes” interviews, coverage of conference events, and reactions to the day from attending delegates, and will feature the departments participating in the Thought Leadership segment. Each day, the Thought Leadership feature segments will showcase police work from around the world. These segments are filmed in advance to showcase some of the best practices from across the IACP membership and enable us to go “on location” from IACP 2011.

The IACP’s contracted partner in this venture, WebsEdge, will be reaching out to several of our members seeking proposals for these feature segments..
There are a limited number of spots available, and we would like to have representation from a diverse range of IACP members. There are a number of sample topics we are looking to highlight, including great examples of the following:
Topics are not limited to those listed; we welcome your suggestions for feature segment topics. If you are excelling in an area that you think would be of interest and would like to be considered for this opportunity, please submit a proposal on your topic to Gena Galbraith at firstname.lastname@example.org. In your e-mail, briefly describe the particular case study or best practice topic and outline the work you are doing in this area.
Selected departments will be notified, and the IACPtv producers will begin work with individual members to arrange contractual and production details. If you participate in the Thought Leadership segment, there will be production expenses to the department for developing your segment. The costs cover travel to your location, the camera crew, a reporter, film editing, and production.
While there is a cost to produce the five-minute feature segment, the venture has been successful with the International City/County Management Association and Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials International, as well as with IACP members.
The IACPtv producer will work with the agencies to be featured and determine the key messages of the five-minute feature and as well as the agency’s own goals for the use of the film. The film will belong to the agency for its own training and education purposes, community outreach, recruitment, partnerships, or any other requirement. The film will be supplied to the agency on reproducible DVDs and as streaming video that can be uploaded to the agency or community Web site.
The daily IACPtv news programs in which your film will be included will be broadcast in the following ways at IACP 2011 in Chicago:
On a continuous loop in IACP partner hotels on a dedicated television channel in delegate hotel rooms
On flat-panel screens around the Convention Center
On IACPtv DVDs given to members and vendors after the show
Online on the IACP’s WebTV channel
The programming will be supported by an IACPtv newsletter and program guide, in which all featured members will have a written description.
