The Association of Prosecuting Attorneys (APA), in partnership with the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and the Center for Court Innovation, will host the Innovations in Criminal Justice Summit III in Los Angeles, California on April 20-21, 2015.
This free, intensive two‐day workshop is designed to support chiefs, sheriffs and other police executives in the development, utilization and enhancement of crime and public safety analysis intended to drive departmental operations. Each participating agency is asked to attend as an agency team including executive/commander, supervisor, and analyst representatives (if applicable). The training is intended to build capacity and improve communication among ranks and disciplines, specific to the creation and effective use of actionable analysis.
The supervisor's role is critical during an active threat. He/She is not only responsible for everyone's safety, but also for setting up a command center, coordinating with EMS, and the Fire Units that arrive on scene. Further, the supervisor has to make decisions such as sending in more contact teams or rescue teams. This webinar will provide attendees with an overview of how first responders can be trained so that the supervisor will know what the first responders under their command will be doing.
Across the nation, an increasing number of police agencies and sheriff’s offices are recognizing the value of crime analysis and hiring or appointing analysts within their agencies. This is an excellent trend. Unfortunately, little literature and training exists to help administrators and executives with best practices in the management and use of crime analysis. In some agencies, crime analysts are hired and then set adrift, forced to define their own roles and integrate their own products within the operational divisions of the agency.
There are millions of dollars in federal grants available to address common challenges facing law enforcement agencies and their criminal justice and human services partners. This webinar is designed to help your agency identify funding opportunities that are currently available. The discussion will primarily be focused on grants available through the Bureau of Justice Assistance. Join this webinar to ensure that you do not miss out on important opportunities for your community.
