Webinar - Preventing Violent Crime Through Mitigation of Emerging Shadow Economic Trends

Tuesday Jun 22, 2021 - 01:00pm to 02:15pm EDT
Event Description: 

Due to constrained resources and ever-increasing public pressure to reimagine policing, agencies across the nation are deprioritizing non-violent investigations. In order for the non-violent disciplines to remain relevant, they must demonstrate to leadership how their area of expertise fits into the agency's violent-crime suppression priorities. In precursor training, we explained how the shadow economy destabilizes our communities and exacerbates the sub-cultures of drugs, gangs, and violence. In this webinar, we will take a closer look at the link between crimes-for-profit and the immediate or subsequent acts of violence they trigger. Attendees will learn how to

  • Understand how crimes-for-profit generate violence
  • Analyze emerging economic trends to anticipate increases in crime and violence
  • Create leadership support in relation to their area of expertise and their agency's violent crime reduction program
