Save the Date! 2014 National Forum on Criminal Justice

The 2014 National Forum on Criminal Justice will take place August 10-13, 2104 in Breckenridge, Colorado. Building on last year's momentum, this year's conference will continue to focus on the integration of policy, research and technology to improve public safety.

The National Forum on Criminal Justice showcases programs, research and technologies that help justice practitioners and decision makers in states, local communities and tribal nations address pressing public safety issues. Sponsored by the National Criminal Justice Association (NCJA), the Justice Research and Statistics Association (JRSA), and the IJIS Institute, the National Forum is the only national conference that brings together leaders from federal, state, tribal and local criminal justice agencies, top criminal justice researchers and technologists from companies providing solutions to justice agencies. Workshop sessions will feature speakers from each discipline to showcase innovative programs and highlight how research and technology help drive good policy. A complete agenda will be available soon. 

The 2014 National Forum will take place at the Beaver Run Conference Center in Breckenridge, Colorado. Rooms are available for $92 plus tax per night.

Participants will learn and share creative strategies while focusing on a wide range of advocacy options for immigrant survivors of intimate partner violence, sexual assault or other crimes.  Plenary sessions and workshops will provide practical tools and address the best practices to strengthen family law and custody cases, increase safety by ensuring access to public benefits, subsidized health care, VAWA confidentiality protections, and victim based immigration remedies and protection orders for immigrant survivors. Participants will also focus on how to deliver services or provide representation in a manner that promotes healing from trauma.
