Join MEASURE, Friendship West Baptist Church and Next Generation Action Network for the 2nd Big Data & Community Policing Conference, a three-day event where attendees will participate in panel discussions by experts in the fields of law enforcement, social advocacy, research and technology. In partnership with Mark43, this symposium will explore current and emerging efforts to improving the relationship between citizens and police through uses of data that increase transparency, build community trust, and strengthen accountability. Donations for Big Data & Community Policing will be applied to the cost of the conference and any remaining funding will help MEASURE meet its annual mission and goals. Who Should Attend? Law enforcement leaders, activists, tech developers, students, analysts, concerned citizens, and stakeholders. Why Attend? The goal of “Big Data & Community Policing ” is to highlight the best in thought leadership as we pursue the next generation of community policing. Check out an overview of our agenda below: DAY 1 | Thursday – August 23, 2018 5pm-7pm Networking Mixer – Fairmont Hotel Downtown Dallas DAY 2 | Friday – August 24, 2018 4:30pm-8:30pm Big Data & Community Policing Symposium – Friendship West Church Keynote Speaker: Chief Renee Hall of the Dallas Police Department DAY 3 | Saturday – August 25, 2018 8am-3pm Big Data & Community Policing Training & Workshops *All programming will be finalized by June 1 Check In begins at 9:30am breaking at 12:30pm for the Networking Expo What Will You Learn? Topics will vary by panel, but attendees will learn directly from experts about the advancements in smart policing initiatives and modern technology adoption that will be critical in ensuring effective community building through transparency and the collection of better data. Panels will discuss the following: How Big Data is helping police departments better connect with the citizens they serve How Big data can be used as a best practice for accountability and reform What can we do to promote and recognize the best behavior in officers and how can that be measured How Big Data can better tell the story of police engagement scenarios How Big Data can make connections and detect patterns so police can prevent and solve crime How Big Data is allowing police to better understand diverse cultures AND MORE! Shared knowledge is what makes Big Data work!

What is the name of the unit to measure radio waves?

Question by newenglandseers.com: What is the name of the unit to measure radio waves?
At what speed to radio or radio active waves travel and how do you measure it? How do you begin learning about measuring energy?

Best answer:

Answer by wjllope
radio waves travel at v=c in vacuum, and very close to that in air.
c = 299792458 meters/second
or
c = 670616629 mph

radioactive waves is a confusing term. a radioactive element emits radiation which most commonly is an alpha (He nucleus), beta (electron or positron), or gamma (photon).
the energy of the alpha, beta, or gamma has very specific possible values depending on the radioactive element that is decaying.
one can measure the energy of these with e.g. a NaI or HPGe crystal read out by a photomultiplier tube.

as to measuring the speed of light (radiowaves), see
