Copblocking-Lite: Public Safety Tradeshow

A couple of weeks ago a banner was hung from a downtown Manchester parking garage advertising the 1st Annual Public Safety Tradeshow – an event intended to connect law enforcement vendors with departments. Hosted by the New Hampshire Association of Chiefs of Police, it was free and open to all interested.

When leaving the tradeshow I noticed it was close to 4pm – when John Patti starts his shift. I decided to head over to the Manchester Police Department to follow-up on a conversation that we had a week or two prior when at Manchester District Court.
