The L-Tron team will attend the 2023 National Association for School Resource Officers (NASRO) School Safety Conference at the JW Marriott in Indianapolis, IN. The NASRO School Safety Conference will run from June 28 – July 3, and the L-Tron team will be available June 28 and 29th to show the OSCR360 system to attendees.
Larimer County Sheriff’s Office has been using OSCR360 regularly for just over 2 years since the system was first purchased by the agency’s Investigations Unit.
