2015 National Forum on Criminal Justice
The 2015 National Forum on Criminal Justice will take place August 2-5 at the Inter-Continental Buckhead in Atlanta, Georgia. 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. Topics of workshops organized by JRSA include:
- What Makes a Juvenile Justice Program Evidence-Based?
- The Justice Reinvestment Initiative: Research Guiding Policy
- FY2015 VOCA Increase: Innovative Approaches to Providing Direct Victim Services Within Criminal Justice/Law Enforcement Agencies
