2017 National Forum Program

Presentations from the 2017 National Forum workshops area posted here.

The 2017 National Forum on Criminal Justice: is a true partnership among policymakers, practitioners, researchers and people in the private sector who are dedicated to the ideal of equal justice for all. This conference showcases programs, research and technologies that help justice practitioners and decision makers in states, local communities and tribal nations address pressing public safety issues. Conference sessions highlight promising and innovative strategies to address crime around the country; explore how technology can improve the administration of justice; examine research and evaluation; and highlight priority issues within the Department of Justice and available resources.

The staffs of the National Criminal Justice Association (NCJA), the IJIS Institute and the Justice Research and Statistics Association (JRSA) wish to acknowledge the support and active involvement of the people and groups who were instrumental in the design and development of the 2017 National Forum:
