Break-out classes will provide law enforcement with instruction in equipment identification techniques, including hands-on training, and equipment owners with more in-depth theft prevention training. New equipment security technologies will be demonstrated throughout the day. The sponsored breaks, lunch and reception will give equipment owners and law enforcement a chance to network and discuss ways of working together to combat the growing problem of equipment theft.

All registrations must be received by NER ( by June 14. Space is limited and places will be allocated on a ‘first come first served’ basis.

The next summit will be held in San Bernardino, Calif. in July with further summits in Texas and Florida.
