CEO and Founder of Envisage Technologies
Ari is involved in building next-generation training systems, cloud-based learning, records management, automation of high-liability training operations, and pervasive readiness technologies. He is a committee member of the National Congress for Secure Communities and an advisory board member of IADLEST. He has consulted for Federal Agencies, Homeland Security, Public Safety, Military, and Law Enforcement on technology, security, legally defensible records, compliance, and training.
The Asset Forfeiture Fund is self-financed from seizures of property owned by criminals and it helps law enforcement agencies pay for resources and officers, so why is Congress cutting it as part of a budget deal?
Those in our profession have always been in harm's way. But over the past several years and especially over the past few months, we have seen the effect that irresponsible rhetoric can have in exacerbating the current climate of mistrust and transforming it into violence targeting police officers. We have to say, with one voice, "Enough is enough!"
