Integrating Policy, Research and Technology to Improve Public Safety

Sponsored by the National Criminal Justice Association (NCJA), the Justice Research and Statistics Association (JRSA) and the IJIS Institute (IJIS), the National Forum on Criminal Justice showcases programs, research and technologies that help justice practitioners and decision makers in states, local communities and tribal nations address pressing public safety issues. It is the only criminal justice conference that brings together leaders from federal, state, local and tribal government and the public and private sector to share real world strategies and solutions from around the country. 

This year we have a stellar line up of workshop presenters composed of industry experts and leading decision makers. Workshops will 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 and available resources within the Department of Justice. Topics cover the important and emerging issues facing justice system professionals.

The 2017 National Forum on Criminal Justice will be held July 30 - August 2 at the Hilton Long Beach in California.

Topics for the 2017 conference include: access to data; reducing recidivism; human trafficking; pretrial justice; body worn camera policies; state-level victimization surveys; social media for state agencies; accessing emergency Byrne JAG funding; crisis intervention training; addressing the needs of the mentally ill; using criminal history records; the internet of safe cities; grants management; strategic planning and more.
