2023 Police and Law Enforcement Trade Show and Conference List

A complete list of every police and law enforcement tradeshow, conference, and expo in 2022 and 2023

2023 Police and Law Enforcement Trade Show and Conference List

Police and law enforcement conferences, expos and trade shows offer unprecedented opportunities to network with colleagues, learn from law enforcement leaders and explore the latest and greatest technological innovations that are reshaping law enforcement.

Since Apex Officer was voted the #1 VR training simulator by police officers and multiple law enforcement agencies, we had the opportunity to attend several police and law enforcement conferences in 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022. 2023 is shaping up to be the best year ever for law enforcement conferences, including conferences designed for police, federal agencies, top brass, sheriffs, female police officers and even K-9 units.

We look forward to presenting the Apex Officer virtual reality training simulator to more law enforcement agencies this year. And if you’re looking to do more networking and get better technology this year, here are some of the best law enforcement conferences to check out.
