This year's program is tailored for the theme Integrating Research, Policy and Technology to Improve Safety. Data-driven decision making is crucial to preventing and reducing crime in our communities. Only through collaboration can decision makers have access to research and technology needed to drive good policy. Because investments in public safety by state, tribal and local justice agencies are increasingly focused on employing evidence-based practices and programs, it is paramount to know what is needed, what works, and why.
Sponsored by the National Criminal Justice Association (NCJA), the Justice Research and Statistics Association (JRSA) and the IJIS Institute (IJIS), the 2014 National Forum 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 life solutions that are working across the country. Last year 92 percent of attendees said the National Forum was important for their professional development and 87 percent reported that they learned useful strategies and ideas that they could take home and implement immediately.
