Addressing the Challenges of the Expanding Law Enforcement Mission Beyond US Borders

With more U.S. citizens traveling and living abroad, an increasingly volatile global environment, and the ability for bad actors to commit crimes and acts of terrorism against American citizens both at home and abroad, our federal law enforcement partners are faced with an expanding mission without traditional borders. This panel will identify key considerations, challenges, and requirements related to intelligence gathering, information sharing, evidence collection and processing, investigations, and prosecution of criminals overseas. Agencies will discuss the impact of this expanded mission on their workforce and resources; how they are addressing the challenges; and the operational tools, technologies, and services needed from their private sector partners to successfully execute the growing global nature of law enforcement.

Why should I attend PSC's Law Enforcement Conference?

 The 2024 PSC Law Enforcement Conference is where senior executives from the government technology and professional services industry will convene to hear from government officials across agencies to discuss critical law enforcement mission priorities and IT challenges. Join your fellow federal law enforcement colleagues for the PSC law enforcement event of the year. 


Networking at its finest

Not only is the PSC Law Enforcement Conference an extraordinary opportunity for business intelligence, but perhaps what it is most known for the incredible networking opportunities it creates across the federal contracting marketplace.
