V13 Policetech Accelerator to Attend Canadian Congress
NCFDC is pleased to announce that the V13 Policetech Accelerator (a joint initiative with the Cobourg Police Service) is an official partner for the Canadian Institute’s Canadian Congress on Real Time Crime Center Operations & Tech Integration, taking place October 4-5, 2023, in Toronto. At the event, participants will develop a greater understanding of coordinated operational excellence in policing, network with fellow law enforcement experts, exchange ideas, insights and innovations and dismantle information silos.
The V13 Policetech Accelerator will have three booths at the event including a start-up showcase highlighting the work of accelerator clients Pegasus Aero and The Mapping Network (the latter having received $25,000 in matching, performance-based seed funding via NCFDC’s thriveFORWARD initiative in southern Ontario, with the support of FedDev Ontario and the Government of Canada).

“This is a great opportunity to showcase the importance of innovation in policing—such as providing real-time data and situational awareness for first responders,” said Joe Miller. “We’re excited to continue our partnership with the Canadian Institute to help police adopt new technologies and methodologies, and to highlight the work done through our accelerator joint initiative.”
You can join the Cobourg Police Service, NCFDC and our partners at the Congress in October. We will delve into an array of topics from budgeting and procurement to the integration of cutting-edge technologies. Register today (click here) and save 10% with promo code D10-999-V1324.
