“Reaching out to our community to ensure no victim is left behind. This non-traditional two day conference will provide our law enforcement professionals with proven methods for reaching out to their community.” Matthew Carmichael, Chief of Police
Building safer community by building community based criminal justice partnerships. Police officers and district attorneys alike are the backbone of the criminal justice system and responsible for ensuring all victims are served. Discussion will center on ensuring proactive police service in the field is complimented by equally proactive service throughout the prosecutorial experience. Focus will ensure all understand and are prepared to promote Victim Compensation.
Finding ways to connect community with today’s law enforcement continues to be a challenge especially when addressing the needs of our under-served community members. This two day conference will provide police officers and district attorneys valuable information on how to best serve the needs of our under-served community members with an emphasis on ensuring all victims of crime have access to the wealth of resources the California Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board Victim Compensation Program has to offer. At the conference attendees will learn firsthand from our community about law enforcement experiences and explore ways to improve relationships with a focus on service and access to victim resources. The evening of the first day will end with a hosted dinner that will include a culturally diverse menu along with various forms of presentations to include "SEVEN". (Learn all about SEVEN here)
The second day of the conference will bring together experts from across the country who will present proven programs and philosophies that have been successful at building community and ensuring a proactive approach to victim services for all. The Conference will include presentations and specific information linking attendees with the resources provided by the California Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board Victim Compensation Program to ensure resources reach all of the community.
This conference will provide a culturally diverse perspective on best community policing practices and is dedicated to the police officers who lost their lives serving the communities they loved. (Officer Down Memorial Webpage)
