Register Now! 2012 National Forum on Criminal Justice & Public Safety

May 7, 2012
Register NowThe 2012 National Forum on Criminal Justice and Public Safety will take place July 29-31 at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya, Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico. The theme of this year's National Forum is "Advancing the Business of Public Safety: Rethinking, Realigning, Restructuring, Realizing."
With resources on the decline, continuing to fund the same programs year after year is no longer an option for public safety and justice agencies. This requires a rethinking of strategies. Realigning resources to promote smart strategic planning and collaboration is now a necessity. Restructuring partnerships and promoting innovative evidence-based and data driven programs are now the norm. It's all part of realizing the goal of keeping communities safe. The 2012 National Forum will help participants refocus their efforts on this new reality.
Sponsored by the National Criminal Justice Association and the IJIS Institute the 2012 National Forum on Criminal Justice and Public Safety showcases programs and technologies that help justice practitioners and decision makers in states, local communities and tribal nations address pressing public safety issues today and in the future. Last year 91 percent of attendees reported that they learned useful strategies and ideas that they could take home and implement immediately. Eighty-seven percent of attendees said the Forum was important for their professional development.
Workshop topics include: American Indian Cultural Education for Crime Prevention and Recidivism Reduction; Information Sharing Standards and Priorities; Women's Pathways to Jail: The roles and intersections of serious mental illness and trauma; Law Enforcement's Leadership Role in Juvenile Justice Reform;  Programs to Reduce Guns and Gangs in Indian Country; The Promise and Perils of Using Social Media in Investigations; Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs and Interstate Data Sharing Efforts; Preventing the Next Hate Crime; Partnering for Impact & Success; New Frontiers in Regional Information Sharing- Pawn, License Plate Readers and Related Privacy Issues; Determining the Value Premise of Technology; Swift, Certain and Consistent Sanctions- an examination of HOPE and similar promising strategies; Framing the Message; Focusing on the Mentally Ill: Pre-Trial Diversion, Assessment and Treatment; Statewide Victim Automatic Notification (SAVIN): Where it is Today and in the Future; Risk, Needs & Responsivity (RNR) simulation tool; Performance Incentive Funding: Strengthening Local Capacity through Strategic Public Policy; Strategic Planning for Victim Services; Hot Trends and Innovations at Nlets; Lessons from Tribal Courts: Using Traditional Tribal Justice Practices to Enhance State Court Systems; and Research Report & Dissemination on State Agency Administrator Evidence Based Program Decision Making.
Plus as always the popular Inside the Beltway session and last year's big hit Breakfast with the Experts Roundtables.

Blacks and Hispanics Have
Different Educational Needs
In the United States, Latino Students
Closed Racial Gap with White Students
While Black Students Continue to Lag Behind

Plenty of large urban school districts nationwide were making solid progress with Hispanic students closing achievement gaps with white students. But African-American students continued to lag.
Hispanic students in recent years have been making faster progress than black students.
At successful Hispanic schools, you are more likely to see a school culture based on connections to family with teachers employing an unstructured curriculum emphasizing visual instruction.

There we go, it's done. The French wanted change. Nicolas Sarkozy has lost his bid for re-election. On Monday, we'll start evaluating the downfall of the outgoing president, who went from being a popular candidate in 2007 to a president quickly pushed aside by his fellow citizens.
