A Clear, Sharper Picture Of What You Need To Know
Attend IACP 2014 for the key insights, expert advice and specific information you need to lead your agency with maximum effectiveness. Conference Sessions are guided by veteran police executives and law enforcement's thought leaders, and focus on bringing clarity to the complex topics that are important to you.
This year's program is tailored for the theme Integrating Research, Policy and Technology to Improve Safety. Data-driven decision making is crucial to preventing and reducing crime in our communities. Only through collaboration can decision makers have access to research and technology needed to drive good policy. Because investments in public safety by state, tribal and local justice agencies are increasingly focused on employing evidence-based practices and programs, it is paramount to know what is needed, what works, and why.
This webinar will feature an interactive conversation with former Assistant Attorney General Laurie Robinson, Clarence J. Robinson Professor of Criminology, Law and Society at George Mason University and Professor Alfred Blumstein, J. Erik Jonsson University Professor of Urban Systems and Operations Research and Former Dean of the Heinz College of Carnegie Mellon University and chair of the OJP Science Advisory Board
