lanning is well under way for the 2012 LEIM Training Conference and Technology Exposition, which will be held May 21–23, 2012, in Indianapolis, Indiana. Every year since 1977, chiefs, sheriffs, commanders, information technology directors, project managers, crime analysts, line officers, and subject matter experts have gathered at the annual LEIM conference to share their knowledge and practical experience in planning, implementing, and operating technology in law enforcement.

The LEIM conference is designed to share leading practices and lessons learned in the innovative application of technology to improve officer and public safety, enhance efficiency and effectiveness of operations, and build enterprise-wide information sharing capabilities. In addition to plenary sessions and concurrent panel presentations, the LEIM conference includes a Technology Exposition Hall, which features industry-leading technology solution providers.

More than 625 people attended the 2011 LEIM Training Conference in San Diego, California. People attending the 2011 LEIM conference found networking with other attendees, speakers, subject matter experts, and world-class solution providers to be one of the most valuable elements of the conference. Join us in Indianapolis in 2012 and see for yourself.
