Integrating Policy, Research and Technology to Improve Public Safety

Sponsored by the National Criminal Justice Association (NCJA) and the IJIS Institute (IJIS), 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. It is the only criminal justice conference that brings together leaders from federal, state, local and tribal government and the public and private sector to share real world strategies and solutions from around the country. 

The 2018 National Forum on Criminal Justice will be held Sunday, July 22 - Wednesday, July 25 at the Worthington Renaissance Fort Worth Hotel in Fort Worth, Texas. Registration opens in the Spring.

Submit workshop proposals and speaker recommendations by Feb 9. Planning is currently underway for the 2018 Forum program. We are seeking recommendations for timely topics and presenters who want to share knowledge, experience, and best practices related to criminal justice. We are particularly interested in presentations by practitioners who are implementing significant evidence-based programs. Topics in all fields – victim services, juvenile justice, mental health, substance abuse, violent crime, law enforcement – are welcome.(Please note: we do not pay speakers and are usually unable to reimburse travel expenses). Submit your workshop proposals and speaker suggestions by Friday, February 9 to info@ncja.org.

For questions about the Forum, please contact Bethany Broida, NCJA Director of Communications, at bbroida@ncja.org.
