Collaborative Approaches to Criminal Justice Challenges

Registration is now open for the 2018 National Forum on Criminal Justice. The conference will be held Sunday, July 22 - Wednesday, July 25 at the Worthington Renaissance Fort Worth Hotel in Fort Worth, Texas. This year’s conference will focus on collaborative approaches to criminal justice challenges. There will also be a special emphasis on mental and behavioral health.

Sponsored by the National Criminal Justice Association (NCJA) 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. Workshops will feature promising and innovative programs and 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.
