On August 5, IACP brought together its advisory committee to help plan for the upcoming January 2004 national policy summit, "Building Partnerships between Private-Sector Security and Public-Sector Policing to Prevent and Respond to Terrorism and Public Disorder." Tom Seamon and Tom Sweeney, co-chairs of the IACP Private Sector Liaison Committee, and John Firman, IACP director of research and summit coordinator, facilitated the meeting.
The purpose of the summit is to craft a national strategy to increase and improve partnerships between private-sector security and public-sector enforcement. The IACP is certain that growth of these partnerships will allow for a much stronger response to threats or acts of terrorism and public disorder.
The advisory committee has identified approximately 120 summit invitees who will identify, discuss, and resolve issues related to private-public safety partnering.
