2016 Core Training Topic

“Stratified Policing”

The details for our training agenda are in development but our presentations will be centered on the “Stratified Policing”. Dr. Rachel Santos and Dr. Roberto Santos will be our featured Speakers.

Stratified Policing. This policing approach for crime reduction and community engagement provides a stratified structure that standardizes crime analysis, the problem-solving process, and accountability within a law enforcement agency while providing the flexibility to implement different evidence-based practices as they are deemed relevant for the nature of crime and environment of the jurisdiction (Santos and Santos, 2015).

Additionally, we plan to present topics from Smart Justice Initiatives currently being implemented in Florida. In keeping with tradition, we will present attendees with our legal update block and hold our business meeting.
