On December 14, 2015 from 2:00 to 3:30 PM (Eastern), the Smart Policing Initiative (SPI) will present the webinar "Criminology 102: Busted Myths in Criminology". This webinar will be presented by Dr. Scott Decker, SPI Subject Matter Expert and Foundation Professor at the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Arizona State University. The past two decades of research have challenged many conventional assumptions about crime and criminal justice.

Please join the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and the International Association of Directors of Law Enforcement Standards and Training (IADLEST) on Tuesday, December 1 from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. ET for the “Strategic Crime Analysis: Reducing Hot Spots and Solving Problems” webinar. This webinar is part of the Building Analytical Capacity Initiative.

BJA/IADLEST Webinar - Strategic Crime Analysis: Reducing Hot Spots and Solving Problems

A key element of crime reduction is tackling long-term and chronic hot spots and other problems: multiple crimes with common factors whose recurrence can often be predicted. Such long-term problems rarely respond to enforcement and arrests, but must be solved with targeted strategies aimed at removing the opportunity for the crimes to occur.
