Planning, Funding and Obtaining New Public Safety Facilities

Our top priority is keeping our clients and staff safe. Due to recent events including COVID-19 and the challenges facing public safety officials on a national basis, we have decided to postpone our large-group, in-person seminars for the rest of 2020.

Our next large-group, in-person seminar is tentatively scheduled for March 4-5, 2021.

However, during this unprecedented time, our commitment still remains helping first responders. We would be happy to provide small-group virtual seminars or even an in-person one-one-one session with any agency who is in the planning process of designing a new public safety facility. Please contact us for a customized solution to fit your public safety needs.

ADG is actively tracking the COVID-19 conditions and are committed to ensuring the safety of all our event attendees; we will re-evaluate based on current CDC guidelines.
