We’re kicking off our IACP 2014 Education blog series with the Chief Executive Track! Look for this icon on our website and in our program to signify Chief Executive Track workshops.
Always the largest track at annual IACP conferences, the Chief Executive Track at IACP 2014 offers insightful and thought-provoking education for all executive levels in law enforcement. The instruction, delivered by top-notch players in the field of public safety, keep the educational sessions fresh from year to year – and this year is no exception!
Are you wondering about how to change crime prevention strategies in your jurisdiction? One example of an important and relevant session being offered in the Chief Executive Track is “Hot Spots, Hot People and Hot Approaches: The Law Enforcement Executive’s Guide to Evidence-Based Approaches to Crime and Violence Reduction.” You’ll hear from police executives who have implemented plans of action in their communities, as well as social researchers who pinpointed why these methods worked.
Speaking of your communities, another workshop entitled “Law Enforcement and Youth: A Police Chief’s Role, Responsibilities and Abilities for Youth and Violence Prevention” highlights ways for chiefs to connect with victimized and/or trouble-making youth to form a stronger bond and reduce the risk for delinquency. A stellar panel of experts will be sharing their success stories, and will be on-hand afterwards to network with you.
The Chief Executive Track is offered throughout the entire conference, beginning Saturday, October 25, and ending Tuesday, October 28. Be sure to include the Chief Executive Track in the sessions you plan on attending!
