From SWAT team to Silicon Valley, Jeff Smith uses Tech to Save Lives


Myth: All cops love donuts with their coffee.
Fact: After 31 years in law enforcement and as a Special Ops Division Captain managing 400 souls, Jeff Smith will take savory chips with his beer, thank you very much.

Smith, VP of Global Security and Multi-sensor Secure Operations Center (MSOC), joined V5 Systems mere months after first hearing about what the brand new company was trying to accomplish.
