This year’s Contemporary Issues and Ethics Conference will focus on “Building Community Trust, Officer Safety and Ethical Leadership.”  The past year has been truly challenging for police-community relations across the United States.  There have been many tragic events where the injury of citizens may have led to a climate of discontent that culminated in the assault on police officers in Louisiana and Texas.  In an effort to make sense of all these dynamics, this conference will bring together experts from the fields of law enforcement, academia and the community to discuss strategies to help restore community confidence while simultaneously enhancing officer safety. We will accomplish this through a prism focusing on procedural justice, police officer emotional health, understanding the impact of implicit bias, and promoting ethical leadership.


Tuition includes all instruction and handouts. Lodging and meals are excluded.
