Built on evidence-based principles, this training curriculum supports law enforcement in fostering strong community relationships, enhancing interactions with youth, and creating effective interventions to divert at-risk and minority youth from the justice system. Improving procedural justice efforts in the juvenile justice system offers an unmatched return-on-investment for law enforcement agencies.
**Registration cut-off: Friday, May 1, 2020** This training is tailored through the identification of merging local youth and justice data and local alternative intervention and prevention initiatives with national efforts to improve youth interactions with the justice system. It focuses on understanding the history of disproportionality and disparity and its impact today, relevant alternatives, cultural competencies, youth development, the effect of trauma on youth and the role of the justice system and the community in improving youth-justice interactions. Law enforcement, juvenile justice, courts and corrections personnel as well as community-based organizations are encouraged to attend.
