Achieve your mission
The two-day expo promises to showcase the latest cutting-edge products, tools and technologies designed to help security and law-enforcement officials achieve their various missions.
GovSec, which event promoters describe as "the largest and most dynamic security expo on the East Coast," will showcase a wide range of security products for government-security decision makers and their private-sector partners.
Attendees will find these and other exhibitor product categories:
• Access control and visitor management
• Digital forensics
• Emergency and mass notification
• IP security
• Perimeter security and intrusion detection
• Robotics and unmanned systems
• Threat detection and identification
TRExpo describes itself as "the definitive event for tactical training, physical security, equipment, technology and services for law enforcement, military, security and federal agencies.”
Products on display from exhibitors will include:
• Active-shooter and go bags
• Dispatch systems and software
• Evidence-handling systems
• Flashlights and tactical lighting
• Guns and ammunition
• Law-enforcement vehicles
• LPR systems
• Mobile apps
• Non-firearm weapons
• Personal protective equipment
• Tactical weapons and gear
• Video systems
Back to the theme of challenged budgets, promoters note that there never is a fee for active federal, state, tribal and local law enforcement to attend the exhibits and free education at the TRExpo.
Free educational sessions and demonstrations in the exhibit hall will cover topics such as K-9 explosive detection, cybercrime, police cycling and federal grants for homeland security and law enforcement.
This year, attendees also can take advantage of one- and two-day options for GovSec/TRExpo, at rates of $99 or less.
"By offering free and discounted programming, TRExpo gives law-enforcement departments and agencies a cost-effective way to provide their officers and employees with valuable training and exposure to the latest tools and tactics in law enforcement," Berey said.
As part of Law Enforcement Appreciation Day on May 14, the first 250 current and credentialed first responders to attend TRExpo will receive a free lunch in the exhibit hall, and the first 250 in uniform will receive a limited-edition TRExpo challenge coin.
