Call for Panelists:

Call for Panelists: Public Safety Geographic Information System (GIS) Technician

APCO International is planning to conduct an occupational analysis validation for the position of Public Safety GIS Technician.  High performing practitioners are the best qualified individuals to accurately describe their occupation.  We are looking for individuals who perform the task of GIS system programming and maintenance to participate on a panel that comprises a representative sampling within the Midwest region of the United States.

The purpose of this process is to assist APCO International’s Standards Development Committee in developing national training standards for public safety communications. These national standards will further the profession and it is important that subject matter experts are included in their development. This analysis may also become a model for your region.  Not only will public safety communications benefit from each professional’s participation, but each panelist will also be recognized for their efforts with a panel listing on the final occupation profile.

We need public safety professionals who can actively participate in a one-day workshop scheduled for Tuesday, May 8, 2018. The workshop requires no preparation.

The workshop will be held at:

Grundy County 911 Center

78 W Lowery Rd

Morris, IL 60450

Casual, comfortable attire is recommended. Selected panelists should plan to arrive by 8:30am for registration. The panel will begin promptly at 9:00 am. Lunch will be provided by APCO International.  The workshop will conclude by 5:00pm.

If you are a Public Safety GIS Technician or if you would like to recommend one to represent your agency, please contact Nate Krause at nkrause@nwcds.org or Bud Hicks at bhicks@grundy911.org by April 21, 2018 (space is limited). 

Thank you for your assistance building this important panel. We are anticipating a productive and successful workshop. If you should have any questions or need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
