SUMMERSIDE, PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 08/20/14 -- The Honourable Steven Blaney, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, today released the following statement today after visiting the Canada Border Services Agency's (CBSA) Atlantic Centre for Arming Training (ACAT) at the Atlantic Police Academy in Summerside, Prince Edward Island. Minister Blaney met with officers and instructors at ACAT, where officers are attending an intense four-week duty firearm course. Officers provided a demonstration at the firing range, which included a scenario-based training activity simulating real-life situations.
"Our government is ensuring that CBSA front-line officers receive the highest level of training possible," said Minister Blaney. "The tour of the facility this morning was an excellent opportunity for me to see the challenges our border services officers face as they work to become professionally trained and qualified to carry a duty firearm."
"I found employees were keen to demonstrate the skills they have acquired," Minister Blaney said. "Our front-line officers need to be agile and well-equipped to deliver on the Agency's vision for a modern law enforcement agency. The professionalism, skill-level, and commitment to excellence that the officers and instructors demonstrated were impressive."
"I would like to thank the ACAT instructors and the Atlantic Police Academy for an informative experience while in Summerside."

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
