Law Enforcement and Entreprenuers in Residence?

San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee and the White House launched a new initiative Friday aimed at getting entrepreneurs to create tech-based solutions for some of the city’s gnarliest problems.

The program is a start-up accelerator, of sorts: the 16-week workshop–called Entrepreneur-in-Residence San Francisco–will select three to five teams of entrepreneurs and provide them with mentorship from private sector corporations, including McKinsey and GE. Their goal: solve a public sector problem.

Interested entrepreneurs or teams are asked to apply online and reveal, among other practical details, their most successful innovations to date and how to best improve a public sector problem.

Ideally this type of program will be replicated and implemented in areas where law enforcement need  innovation and creativity the most.
