About Session

Organizational risk comes in many forms, and in law enforcement, risks associated with reputation or organizational culture can be among the most important threats compared, for example, to financial risks. Evaluating risk in a rigorous manner is especially relevant today, when the nature of law enforcement has changed significantly, and agencies continually strive to earn and sustain public trust. Rather than merely reacting to risks as they arise, law enforcement organizations can identify, assess, and treat risks in a systematic manner.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach and effective risk management practices must consider the organization’s objectives, size, resources, risk appetite, and regulatory environment. In every case, however, addressing risk in a proactive manner helps agencies minimize negative impacts, seize improvement opportunities, and enhance their overall resilience in the face of uncertainty.

The panelists will discuss how risk assessment and internal auditing serve as two powerful allies for law enforcement agencies trying to navigate continuous challenge and change. (A brief 5-minute break will be included approx. halfway through this session.)
