Center for Internet Security has new election leads

Two of the former statewide election officials recently hired to lead the Center for Internet Security’s election security efforts said Friday that the partisan ballot review in Maricopa County, Arizona, undermined the work of election officials on the ground. “It’s the very opposite of what election officials around the country have been working to do,” said former Pennsylvania Secretary of the Commonwealth Kathy Boockvar, who started earlier this month as CIS’s new vice president of election operations and support. Boockvar's comments were echoed by Marci Andino, a former elections director in South Carolina, who'll soon start as the director of the Elections Infrastructure ISAC. Benjamin Freed reports.

Police in rural Ohio are using VR for empathy training

A pilot project based out of Ohio University that uses virtual reality to train police officers to be more empathetic is showing great promise so far, researcher told StateScoop. John Born, a former Ohio State Highway Patrol colonel, told StateScoop the technology is the best shot at improving non-tactical police training that he’s seen over his 32-year career. The project is centered on improving the accessibility of training to a region with few resources.  “Agencies in Southeast Ohio or Appalachia are at the point where they don’t have the funding or necessarily the resources to be able to send people three hours away to training,” Born said.
