The purpose of the Mock Prison Riot is to provide training and technology exposure for corrections and law enforcement practitioners. The Mock Prison Riot facilitates the "marriage" of technologies and end-users, utilizing the decommissioned West Virginia Penitentiary in Moundsville for tactical training scenarios, technology demonstrations, workshops, and networking. End-users are able to take technologies from our showcase and deploy them throughout the prison compound in tactical training scenarios they design. This, in turn, provides optimum conditions for feedback regarding the effectiveness of the technologies. Exhibitors then digest suggestions for modifications and improvements, leading to next-generation products on a global scale.
No one under 18 is allowed on site. This event is not open to the general public. This event is open to Exhibitors whose technologies are related to the fields of law enforcement and corrections, the military, and entities with public safety interests. The event is open to law enforcement and corrections practitioners and support personnel. Official law enforcement agency or corrections identification must be shown prior to admittance. Criminal justice students are admitted if they are enrolled in an accredited college or university and are under the supervision of an instructor/academic official.
Participating teams and observers are free to attend for however long your budget allows you to stay. Some participants and observers come for just one day. Some come only for the Riot. Others come only for the Skills Competition. Some come for both. This is up to you and your team/department and your individual budget constraints. Local hotels range in price from about $50 to $150 per night. Please check the Lodging link for a listing of area hotels and campgrounds.
Many first-time attendees find that it is very beneficial to attend as observers. This allows you to tour the facility and observe all the different technologies and types of scenarios available. We are happy to accommodate your situation, whatever that may be. There is no limit on attendance for the Mock Prison Riot. Some agencies send 1 or 2 people, while others send teams of up to 70 or more. There will be food for purchase from vendors on site.
Our Exhibitors actively seek the feedback of the end-users who attend this event. They tell us that the feedback provided is critical to the product development cycle. By working together - Exhibitors and end-users - you are helping to shape the future of tactics and technologies in the law enforcement and corrections industry on a global scale.
Every attendee will be charged a $25 non-refundable registration fee.
Any other questions or inquiries should be sent to Sharon Goudy.
