Call for Presenters: 2023 BJA Violent Crime Reduction Conference

The 2023 U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) Violent Crime Reduction Conference will be held on December 11-13, 2023, in Indianapolis, IN. This invitation-only event will convene executive leaders and key stakeholders from across the National Public Safety Partnership (PSP) and Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) sites, other BJA violent crime-related grantees, DOJ officials, and subject-matter experts to examine programs of interest and additional evidence-based practices to increase public safety, enhance partnerships in the participating communities, and reduce violent crime. BJA is particularly interested in highlighting those efforts which promote community collaboration and partnership in addressing violent crime.

The conference organizers invite researchers, practitioners, and site teams to submit presentation proposals for 75-90 minute plenary, panel, and/or breakout sessions. Proposals may want to consider including representatives from or combination of law enforcement, prosecution, judicial, community intervention, victims, and community members including juveniles to be part of the proposal.

The submission deadline for presentation proposals is September 12, 2023.
