FOSE kick-off: The future of police work and the media

The first keynote speeches at FOSE 2010 this morning presented an unusual mix of law enforcement and technology.

Bill Bratton, former police chief of Los Angeles, New York and Boston, talked about technology's role in police work and its likely role in the future. One Twitter follower says he discussed how partnerships, technology and accountability have led to great law enforcement success.

Several tweets from attendees also reported that military actions are becoming more like police work.

One poster noted that Bratton said he "gets approached by generals going to war because they understand it's a policing issue."

On the home front, another reports Bratton saying that police department have the know-how for cybersecurity but lack resources.

Meanwhile, Anthony Zuiker, creator and executive producer of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, discussed cross-platforming. One thing many people picked up: He said traditional media is dead, and that newspapers, magazines and TV must become more interactive. Another notes that "cross platform story telling is the future #FOSE keynote CSI creator. #Level26 is a good example. It's a book movie & a social site!"

More to come. And follow along on Twitter at @govcomputernews or peek at the conference's live feeds.
