2020 National District Attorneys Association Capital Conference

Coinciding with the start of the second session of the 116th Congress, the National District Attorneys Association’s Capital Conference provides participants with the opportunity to hear directly from Administration, agency, and Capitol Hill speakers. Join them in the nation’s capital, Washington, DC, for an educational and networking event to connect directly and in-person with lawmakers.

The conference includes:

Webinar - The Art of Crisis Leadership

Crises cost time, money, customers, and careers (usually in that order), as well as, in the worst of scenarios, lives. Whether a data breach, social media attack, bad press, litigation, investigation, civil unrest, or scandal, great leaders understand how to be predictive and create organizational muscle memory.

Webinar - Sustainable Crime Gun Intelligence Strategies Require Policy-driven Tactics

Whether implementing a regional or agencywide preventive crime gun strategy, the establishment of formal policies is a critical factor that must be addressed. These policies can be wide-ranging in scope, affecting entire local, regional, or national populations, and they can be narrow in scope, affecting only a single organization. For example, at least three states now have laws mandating that all police agencies in the state utilize the National Integrated Ballistic Information Network (NIBIN) when investigating firearm-related crimes.

COAP Webinar Series: Making Data Simple – Dashboards and Visualization

Reviewing and discussing data with stakeholders can be challenging because people have different comfort levels with data and statistics. Sometimes the most effective way to communicate data findings is through the creation of effective data visualizations. Data dashboards have become popular because they can be easily explained and interpreted by a variety of users. In some cases, data dashboards allow the end user to manipulate the data and isolate individual variables, allowing further exploration and knowledge building.

COAP Rural Responses to the Opioid Epidemic Solicitation Webinar

On behalf of the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), the Institute for Intergovernmental Research is releasing the Rural Responses to the Opioid Epidemic Grant solicitation. BJA is sponsoring this initiative in coordination with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the State Justice Institute (SJI). This is part of a series of demonstration projects funded under the Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Program. These demonstration projects are designed to build local capacity, foster cross-sector collaboration, and support innovation.

Law Enforcement Response: Approaching Your Work with a Trauma-Informed Lens

Victims react to the psychological trauma of a crime in various ways. In order to ensure they receive the care they need, practitioners must become familiar with the impact of trauma and the concept of trauma-informed care. This session will provide participants insight into the surprising similarities of victims and police officers that will help connect the complex thought patterns of a victim in trying to survive the moment and in the long term.
