Webinar: Developmentally Informed and Trauma-Informed Police Officer

Police officers are not social workers or psychologists, nor should they be expected to take on these roles.  Still, law enforcement professionals have daily interactions with vulnerable children and families, and officers can perform in their professional roles more effectively when they are grounded with knowledge about human development.

Sponsored by the International Association of Chiefs of Police, in coordination with the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, this no-cost webinar will offer key information about typical human development, coupled with information about signs and symptoms of acute traumatic exposure and strategies for officers to intervene effectively on-scene.

Date:  July 30, 2019

Time:  1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m., ET

COAP Webinar Series: Making Data Simple—Dashboards and Visualization

Reviewing and discussing data with stakeholders can be challenging because people have different comfort levels with data and statistics.  Sometimes, the most effective way to communicate data findings is through the creation of effective data visualizations.  Data dashboards have become popular because they can be easily explained and interpreted by a variety of users.  This webinar will demonstrate some of the data visualization techniques used by two organizations to improve understanding of substance use, criminal justice, and public health outcomes.

Presentation topics will include the following:

  • What it takes to convince agency leadership to widely employ data visualization

  • How data visualization leads to improved communication

  • Assembling the necessary components to create successful data visualization efforts

  • How data is presented to inform key stakeholders

  • Developing strategy and public policy from the results of data visualization

Mass Attacks in Public Spaces: Secret Service National Threat Assessment Center’s Annual Report

The Secret Service National Threat Assessment Center (NTAC) is tasked with delivering research, training, consultation, and information sharing on threat assessment and the prevention of targeted violence, including targeted attacks against workplaces, houses of worship, schools, and other public spaces. The research and information produced by NTAC guides not only the Secret Service’s approach to preventing assassinations, called threat assessment, but also informs the communitywide approach needed to prevent incidents of targeted violence.


This report is NTAC’s second analysis of mass attacks that were carried out in public spaces, and it builds upon Mass Attacks in Public Spaces – 2017 (MAPS-2017).  With this latest report, the Secret Service offers further analysis and operational considerations to our partners in public safety.

Webinar: What Justice Professionals Need to Know About Hate Crime

Hate crimes and bias incidents are occurring throughout the United States, in big cities and small towns, highly publicized or going unreported. These crimes can represent the ultimate in violence, or perpetrators can spread their message of fear and intimidation through words and rhetoric.

Hate crimes are different from any other crimes you will encounter as a law enforcement officer. They can happen anywhere, and anyone can be a target. No one is safe, and there is no protection.  And they do not affect just the victim—they can affect an entire community.

This no-cost webinar, hosted by the Justice Clearinghouse, will walk attendees through the three Rs, Recognize, Respond, and Report, so that hate crimes can be addressed properly and promptly.

Date:  Tuesday, July 16, 2019

Time: 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m., ET
