Last week, the Connecticut Chiefs of Police Association hosted the 2017 Public Safety Expo at the Aqua Turf Club in Plantsville, CT. The free single day event attracted chiefs, lieutenants, and officers from all over the state. It also provided over 100 vendors with an opportunity to present their company’s message and product.
According to the organization’s website, the CPCA is “dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of the residents of the State of Connecticut; to aiding other government bodies within and external to the State of Connecticut in the administration of justice, ensuring that all are treated equally before the law.”
A Short Stop at the Expo
The Public Safety Expo is the largest event of it’s kind in New England. Coffee, snacks, and door prizes were a featured part of the easy going yet active conference. Ken Rosa, Senior Manager of Law Enforcement Relations, and a former member of CT law enforcement himself, was on hand to represent Aftermath.
Aftermath also gave away a 5.11 Tactical Bag and PPE Kit as part of the day’s prizes. The winner was Chief William Dittman of the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Police Department.
Though the event lasted less than 8 hours, the connections Ken made with attendees were invaluable. Many spoke to him on the subject of biohazard cleanup and the importance of professional service providers. “The Officers were excited to learn that we were so close,” Ken reported. “They inquired about our insurance policies, rapid response commitment, and the vetting of our crews. I believe they were very satisfied with the responses I gave. Overall, it was a great event. I hope to make it back again for next year.”
