TREXPO Joins Forces with GovSec to Establish Event Showcasing and Tools for Law Enforcement

This year, TREXPO is joining forces with GovSec– the Government Security Conference and Expo – to bring together leaders in law enforcement, military, security and federal agencies in a single location, where more can be learned about the tactical training, technology and services required to gain an advantage in ensuring public safety and security. Scheduled for May 13-15 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., TREXPO will enable credentialed law enforcement professionals to enhance their Police Week experience by attending free exhibits, educational sessions and demonstrations, and receiving discounted registration for the conference and workshops.

“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,” said Don Berey, senior event director for TREXPO. “The combination of TREXPO and GovSec allows for the fusion of two audiences – law enforcement and government security professionals – who share the common goal of ensuring the safety of our communities and critical infrastructure.”
