On September 13, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. ET, the Strategies for Policing Innovation (SPI) team will present a webinar on “Practical Approaches to Sustaining Innovative Policing Initiatives.” This online, interactive seminar will engage both the law enforcement community along with state and local government officials on how SPI sites are planning and sustaining new innovation.
Can you be a more effective leader, and a better decisionmaker, with readily accessible data? The information challenges presented to agency and facility management, as well as the broader justice and public safety community including pretrial and probation departments, vary greatly but can all be solved through technology.
Join the DXC Eclipse team as they walk through challenge scenarios you may be running into at your agency or correctional facility. Learn how to solve them through the use of data analytics, reporting and business intelligence (BI).
Understanding gendered pathways into the juvenile justice system equips providers with ways to effectively focus on the complex needs, vulnerabilities, trends, and opportunities of each gender's unique experiences. Sexuality and gender identity lenses are equally important to create an environment that elevates lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer/gender nonconforming and transgender youth who identify with female and/or male development, or neither, and varying sexualities, allowing them to be more of who they are.
Brief Overview: This presentation will focus on how Dr. Amelia Siders with the Traverse Bay Children's Advocacy Center worked to design and implement trauma-informed trainings for schools, law enforcement, and other community partners. An overview of essential components and stages of the training will be reviewed, as well as the challenges encountered in implementing the program within different systems. An opportunity for discussion will be provided to generate ideas on how to develop the programming in other communities.
Individuals exiting prisons and jails have an increased likelihood of opioid overdose. Some corrections systems have chosen to address this risk through the use of reentry programs that incorporate medication-assisted treatment (MAT). While a range of Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Program site-based projects are tackling the opioid epidemic by focusing on the front end of the criminal justice system (for example, through the roles of first responders), several teams are focusing on improving jail- and prison-related strategies.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the United States is in the midst of an opioid overdose epidemic. Heroin is the most rapidly acting of opiates and has become an epidemic across the country. The discussion will address prescription opioids and heroin. This class will provide basic knowledge of its abuse, the effects on the body, and implications for treatment and criminal justice supervision. In short, the CDC stated that opioid epidemic was already the deadliest in American history in 2015.
Fire/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is an essential partner in front-end responses to people with behavioral health conditions, including mental health and substance use crises. This webinar will focus on the ways that Fire/EMS can be partners with behavioral health providers and other first responders on early diversion initiatives.
Police body-worn cameras (BWCs) have diffused rapidly in law enforcement in the United States and abroad over the last few years. The rapid diffusion of police BWCs has been driven, in part, by findings from a handful of early research studies which suggest cameras can produce a range of positive outcomes, including reductions in use of force and citizen complaints, enhanced prosecution outcomes, and increased perceptions of procedural justice among citizens.
Body worn cameras (BWCs) have been in the news for the past couple of years. To better educate local governments on the trending issues surrounding this topic, Leonard Matarese will lead a discussion with the CNA Institute for Public Research, which directs and coordinates technical assistance regarding BWCs for the hundreds of police agencies that have received funding in recent years from the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) under the BWC Policy and Implementation Program (PIP).
