The IPSA kicked off its inaugural event today. Our public safety symposium brought together public safety professionals from around the U.S. and internationally to discuss contemporary issues in public safety. The sessions were an overwhelming success and very well received.
In addition, the IPSA presented its first Leadership Award to Chief Scott Edson with Los Angeles Sheriff's Department and Chair of the IPSA's Board of Directors.
Chief Edson has been, and continues to be, instrumental in shaping the IPSA into a professional public safety association that addresses contemporary issues facing all emergency first responders. His time and dedication serving as the IPSA's first Board Chair is recognized and valued by the association's leadership and membership.
Presenting this award to Chief Edson was just phase one.

Thank you Chief Edson for your commitment to the IPSA and your dedication to the public safety community.
