9:00 – 10:15 am
Critical Incident Response: Active Shooters - You serve a vital function in our society. Your presence is of real and symbolic importance to citizens, and when confronted with an emergency, citizens demand immediate, decisive and corrective action to take place. Reality indicates that we work in an unforgiving and calamity driven business, largely because public safety agencies rely on people to deal with the unimaginable. Any failure to respond effectively to a crisis will interfere with the Agency’s ability to successfully manage the consequences of the incident. Therefore, is your Agency ready to deal with an extraordinary event? Are you? Remember, it is always too late to cover for poor performance. Use the lessons learned today to develop new and innovative approaches to security strategies. Featuring Dennis Potter, Professor of Criminal Justice and Criminology at Metropolitan State College of Denver
10:30 – 11:15 am
Active Shooter: Part II - The need for special consideration in dealing with the threat of an active shooter is different in museums and other public institutions than from many other environments. After hearing from the experts on what to expect and first response guidelines, this session will fill in specific advice for cultural institutions, especially those with no armed capability. Featuring Steve Layne, CPP, CIPM, CIPI, President, IFCPP and Principal, Layne Consultants International
11:15 – 12:00 pm
Exhibitor Social - Meet and greet our exhibitors. This is the best time to learn what's new and how it works. Our exhibitors are selected specifically for their applicability in cultural institution protection.
1:00 – 2:00 pm
Personnel Management (CIPM) - Your security staff can comprise your most valuable asset, or be your greatest liability. Discover tips for successful hiring, managing, training, discipline and firing in this CIPM session. Learn skills that you will be able to take back and use immediately. Featuring Mike Kirchner, CPP, CIPM II, CIPI, Director of Safety & Security, Harvard Art Museums
Practical Guide to Network-Based Security Electronics (CIPM II) - Network-based (or IP enabled) security electronics are here to stay. Almost every security publication highlights the industry trend of security electronics communicating across the organization’s network. To realize the benefits of network-based security electronics, users will need to understand how to effectively migrate to this new technology and mitigate the operational risks associated with the network infrastructure. This low-tech discussion will remove much of the mystery associated with these systems and provide a fundamental knowledge of the differences between legacy systems and today’s network-based security electronics. Featuring Mark Peterson, CIPT, Principal, MC Peterson & Associates and Senior Project Manager, Layne Consultants International
2:10 – 3:10 pm
Legal Considerations (CIPM) - Private security is most often penalized for failing to properly define and contain Use of Force. What is the "standard of care" for premise protection, proper hiring and retention, daily supervision, apprehension of violators, ejection of unruly visitors? How does "trespass" affect your protection program? Each term, when properly defined and applied significantly reduces the institution's exposure to litigation. Featuring Steve Layne, CPP, CIPM, CIPI, President, IFCPP and Principal, Layne Consultants International
Critical Collaboration (CIPM II) – Cooperation between professionals is often times the hardest challenge any of us face. This advanced level, interactive panel session will delve into the nuances of collaboration between department heads (curators, registrars, visitors services, human resources, facilities management, risk managers, educators, librarians, law enforcement, security, and other staff), as well as administration, outside agencies, and neighboring institutions. Come prepared to share your ideas! And plan to take away new strategies to implement those plans for which you’ve struggled to receive sufficient buy-in. Moderated by Bill Powers, CIPM II, CIPI, Director of Facilities, Clark Art Institute
3:20 – 4:20 pm
Emergency Management (CIPM) - Managing the response to an emergency incident or large-scale disaster is one of the most important challenges facing your institution or business organization. Effective emergency management planning must include the key elements of command, control, communication and coordination in defining the actions needed to help save lives, limit injuries, preserve property and allow for the continued operation of the business organization. Featuring Jim Clark, CPP, CIPI, Managing Partner, Clark Security Group
5:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Security Tour & Reception at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science
Join us for security tours of the museum, security/fire command center, and loading dock operation, as well as dinner hosted by DMNS. Transportation provided by IFCPP.
As part of DMNS’s Education Collection Facility construction project on the south side of the building beginning in September 2011, it necessitated moving the loading dock, Mail Room, Gift Shop storage and central receiving functions to the north side of the building. DMNS is very excited about this project as it will solve some long-term safety problems with deliveries and trash removal that were in direct conflict with the School Entrance located in the same area of the building. The new Loading Dock will be located east of the present Boiler Building and connect to our existing underground tunnel system that access the main Museum. This new dock will accommodate all DMNS recycling, gift shop storage, hazardous waste storage and all food deliveries. This work needs to be completed by August 23, 2011 in order for the work on the south side to begin. Although a small building (less than 3,000 sf) it is a very complex project tapping into present systems with heating, cooling, data, telephone, water, fire suppression/detection, freight elevator installation and CCTV/alarm systems. This will be a very tight construction schedule in order to be completed on time and you will be one of the first to see it!!!
THURSDAY, AUGUST 25, 2011
8:30 – 9:30 am
Beyond the Institution’s Doors: Making Crucial Local, State, and Federal Connections - When an institutional disaster plan is kept up to date and staff is trained to carry it out, an institution can effectively and successfully deal with an in-house emergency. But when disaster strikes, it’s often necessary to reach beyond the institution's doors to responding agencies. Panelists from local, state, and federal emergency management agencies will explore how cultural institutions can better partner with responding agencies before disaster strikes – and after. Featuring representatives from Heritage Preservation, FEMA, Homeland Security, and local Emergency Management. Moderated by Lori Foley, Vice President for Emergency Programs, Heritage Preservation
9:45 – 10:45 am
Emergency Planning: A 12 Step Program - The ability to adequately respond to and recover from a major disrupting event is based upon the preparation taken prior to the event. There are at least 12 steps that must be included in your plan to ensure a successful outcome. Often when we plan for these major disrupting events there is only a superficial look at the potential problems and the resources necessary to respond. This workshop will relate 12 basic areas that should be in every museum/library’s emergency operations plan. Featuring J.R. Thomas, Clark Security Group
10:50 – 11:50 am
