The U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ) and the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) are hosting two workshops that seek to educate stakeholders on the DoJ’s performance standards for interview room recording systems and for license plate readers.

On Sept. 21, 2012, the DoJ posted a notice on the Federal Register—Notice of the Interview Room Recording System Standard and License Plate Reader Standard Workshops—that says the workshop “sessions are intended to inform manufacturers, test laboratories, certification bodies and other interested parties of these standards development efforts.”

The workshops are being held to discuss recent progress made toward the standards and to receive input, comments and recommendations, the DoJ says.

Both workshops will be held on Sept. 29, 2012 at the San Diego Convention Center in conjunction with the 119th Annual IACP Conference. The interview room recording system standard session is scheduled to occur from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., and the license plate reader standard session is scheduled to occur from 11 a.m. to noon.

Because the workshops are being held in conjunction with the IACP conference, space is limited to 50 participants for each session, DoJ says. Therefore, organizations are requested to limit their representatives to two per organization. However, exceptions to that limit may occur, should space allow, the department says.
