The Association of Prosecuting Attorneys (APA), in partnership with the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and the Center for Court Innovation, will host the Innovations in Criminal Justice Summit III in Los Angeles, California on April 20-21, 2015.
Innovations in Criminal Justice Summit was born in 2011 in an effort to support practitioners in tackling the challenges related to shrinking budgets and rising cost. Although the budget decreases have subsided, the summit’s goal remains the same: to feature cutting edge criminal justice programs that can serve as models for practitioners around the country who seek to reduce crime and unnecessary incarceration thereby saving taxpayer’s money.
The summit will highlight the eight 2015 Innovations in Criminal Justice award winners including (alphabetically): Ashland Oregon Police Department’s “You Have Options” Sexual Assault Reporting Program, Cook County (Chicago, Illinois) State’s Attorney’s Office Deferred Prosecution Program, Jackson County (Kansas City, Missouri) District Attorney’s Office and Police Department’s Kansas City No Violence Alliance (KC NoVA), Mesa County Colorado Evidence Based Pretrial Initiative, Montgomery County (Pennsylvania) District Attorney’s Using Root Cause Analysis to Enhance Conviction Integrity, Red Hook (Brooklyn, New York) Peacemaking Program, San Francisco District Attorney’s Neighborhood Courts, and Shelby County (Memphis, Tennessee) Public Defender’s Jericho Project.
