The National Center for Campus Public Safety is excited to launch its 2019 free webinar series, Campus Public Safety Online, this January with three incredible guest presenters.
This webinar will showcase innovative best practices to mitigate the negative effects experienced by children exposed to trauma—including an arrest or incident related to opioid use—and will highlight the Handle With Care initiative. This promising initiative partners schools and childcare agencies, law enforcement, and treatment providers to promote safe and supportive homes, schools, and communities with the goals of protecting children and helping traumatized children heal and thrive.
Sponsored by the National Criminal Justice Association (NCJA) and the International Community Corrections Association (ICCA), the 2019 Forum on Criminal Justice will showcase programs, research, and policies that will help justice practitioners, researchers, and decisionmakers address pressing public safety issues.
Facial recognition, optical character recognition systems, drones, and mobile devices are all making their way into law enforcement agencies at a fast pace. Each of these systems is bringing new data sources, which enhance and can be integrated with existing data systems. This webinar will highlight these new and emerging technologies, as well as other technologies such as body-worn cameras and license plate recognition systems; the data they provide; and practical examples of integrating the data for investigations and crimefighting efforts.
Crime is evolving rapidly, creating new challenges for law enforcement agencies. By using computers, communications platforms, and other technologies, criminals commit crimes that were unheard of a decade or two ago, while also finding different ways to commit traditional crimes. For law enforcement agencies to keep up in this new environment, they must change their approach to criminal investigations. Physical evidence and witness statements are no longer sufficient in many cases.
