The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) has partnered with IACP to develop a special educational program featured exclusively at the 2015 International Association of Chiefs of Police Annual Conference and Exposition. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in robust discussions with experienced experts about what law enforcement officers need to do their jobs safely and effectively in today’s society.
The NIJ Saturday Session consists of five workshops geared toward law enforcement practitioners, researchers, and policymakers across various fields. Attendees will learn about the latest research in the field which they can use to inform policy and implement change within their jurisdiction. Sessions include:
- What Works and What Matters in Policing – Opening Remarks
- Pathways to Violent Extremism: Understanding the Radicalization Process and How Best to Prevent Violence in Your Community
- Building the Evidence in Your Jurisdiction: Models for Partnerships between Law Enforcement Agencies and Researchers
- Technology: Tools for Working Smarter, Faster, and Cheaper
- Improving Community Relations: Evidence on Police Legitimacy and Procedural Justice
These sessions are an opportunity to hear from law enforcement leaders and subject matter experts and to learn about what the research says about these critical issues.
