Deputy Chief Nishan Duraiappah accepted the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) Technology Champion of the Year Award at the Annual Training Conference Awards Luncheon on Tuesday, July 19, 2016 in Washington D.C.. The award is sponsored by Harris Corporation and is presented to an individual who is a strong advocate of technology that benefits law enforcement and public safety.
NOBLE is the largest association of black law enforcement officers and spans police agencies across the United States of America. The fact that NOBLE selected a Canadian police leader out of all the American police agencies is a remarkable testament to the achievements of Halton Police. We are thankful for the acknowledgment of NOBLE and Deputy Chief Duraiappah was honoured to accept the award on behalf of the Halton Regional Police Service.
Some of the work that the Halton Regional Police Service has championed includes LTE mobile workstations in each vehicle, public police Apps in ITunes/Google, the testing of smart mobile devices for officers to conduct electronic notetaking in the field and piloting of in-car cameras. Halton Police has established a unique Police Analytics Unit, which has gained international recognition as Leaders in Business Intelligence. These initiatives are supported by world class police officers and civilians working in the Office of Continuous Improvement and Strategic Management and Information Technology.
Through technological initiatives and community programs, Halton Police improves community safety and well-being. We also partner with community groups such as the Canadian Association of Black Law Enforcers (ABLE) to enhance understanding and foster relationships between the police and all members of the public.
“There are many elements to improved community safety and well-being. Technology and innovation are critical components of this equation and cannot be overlooked. The success of policing, and keeping Halton safe, is rooted in our ability to enhance our services to help officers and civilians on the front line, support staff, police management and its leaders. We have made a purposeful decision to seek opportunities to enhance our staff’s decision-making through innovative initiatives and technology. In the end, it is the work of our front line staff that makes Halton such a great community,” said Chief Stephen Tanner, Halton Regional Police Service.
