This is the first of GTSI's Regional Seminar Series, coupled with GTSI's Technology Leadership Series held in Washington, D.C., presenting timely topics throughout the year. This seminar will be held at the Baltimore Maryland Marriott Waterfront, 700 Aliceanna Street. Speakers include Major Rodney Milburn, Commander of the Special Operations Division and Sandy Sundberg, Senior Systems Analyst of the Louisville, KY, Police Department; Gary W. Schenkel, Director of the Federal Protective Service at DHS; Stefan Waters, Senior Systems Engineer for the City of Baltimore CitiWatch Program, Rob Funk, Senior Analyst, Homeland Security and Justice/Public Safety at INPUT; and Bill Weber, Sr. Vice President of Programs and Services, GTSI. The speakers will relate their experiences with a variety of physical security challenges, on site and in-car, that have been successful in documenting criminal activities and making the streets safer for citizens.

Since the early 1990's, GTSI has been in the forefront of providing public safety officials with solutions to improve their ability to identify and capture criminals. Today, GTSI provides a wide variety of physical security solutions including very sophisticated in-car video management systems and services that incorporate technology assessment, product selection, project management and implementation services. Over the past decade, GTSI has provided over $400 million in equipment and services to more than 4700 police, fire, and EMS departments throughout the United States.

Presently, state and local agencies use GTSI's U.S. Communities technology contract, a pre-competed IT contract available to participating state and local governments for the procurement of equipment and services. The contract is flexible and enables governments to meet project milestones in an efficient manner. State and local governments currently work with GTSI to secure borders, ports, airports, school campuses, and other critical infrastructures as well as to purchase complete in-car video management systems.

"We've been partnering with public safety agencies for more than a decade and have seen funding sources and technology change dramatically," said Mr. Weber. "The world we live in has also changed, so it is important to continue to focus on this topic. We also want to make governments aware of rapid technological advancements and the wide variety of solutions we can offer in this important area and other areas that impact our safety."

GTSI has launched a dedicated Web site -- -- with details on registration, content, speakers, and travel.
