Another conference announced! The New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services will be holding their annual GIVE conference once again in Albany this September. I've been involved in this conference in the past and can attest that it's a great conference that is designed on providing practical, evidence-based guidance to help communities reduce gun violence and violent crime. The details are below: --------------- The New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) will bring together criminal justice professionals within New York and across the nation for the 2022 Public Safety Symposium. This symposium will be held in Albany, NY from Tuesday, September 27 to Thursday, September 29, 2022 at the Empire State Plaza Convention Center. The symposium convenes public safety and law enforcement executives, police command staff, prosecutors, community supervision personnel, crime analysts, researchers, community members and criminal justice practitioners from around the state and country. Over the course of three days, symposium presenters and attendees will share innovative ideas, evidence-based policies and practices, as well as updates on police reform and reinvention efforts. Symposium attendees are primarily involved with DCJS’s signature programs: Gun Involved Violence Elimination (GIVE) initiative, Crime Analysis Center (CAC) program , and SNUG street outreach network. However, given the continued growth of the symposium and in an effort to promote evidence-based crime reduction and criminal justice reforms, this year’s event will be open to all members of the criminal justice community in New York State.
