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.
In criminal justice, a “sentinel event” is a bad outcome that might include a death in custody, routine police encounter that escalates to violence, mishandling of evidence, wrongful conviction, or “near miss,” in which a negative event is narrowly avoided. Too often, the criminal justice system fails to learn from these bad outcomes. Drawing inspiration from aviation, medicine, and other high-risk fields, the Sentinel Events Initiative (SEI) takes an alternative approach.
Trafficking in persons is a multifaceted global epidemic, which has seen a significant increase in public awareness. However, there is a substantial need to expand capacities and technologies involving representatives from all stakeholders.
