Upcoming Webinars

Treating Victims of DUI/Impaired Driving Crashes as Crime Victims

July 13 @ 2pm Eastern

Too often prosecutors, victim advocates, and law enforcement continue to differentiate between vehicular crimes and other types of crime. This webinar, sponsored by the Office for Victims of Crime, aims to change any existing mindsets that DUI crashes are “accidents” rather than “criminal acts.” The webinar will include the showing of NSA’s roll call video, DUI Crashes: Real Crimes, Real Victims. Finally, Sheriff John Whetsel, in presenting this webinar, wants to ensure that victims of these crashes are responded to by law enforcement in a crime victim-centered way, with all the referrals, support, and resources due victims of a violent crime.

Presenter: Sheriff (ret.) John Whetsel, Oklahoma County, Oklahoma


Improving Community Relations with Technology (sponsored by Motorola Solutions)

July 27 @ 2pm Eastern

Connecting with your community in new ways and leveraging new sources of information is critical for getting the job done. Learn how real-time data from the community is key for improving community relations, response times and closing cases faster.

Presenters: Col. James M. Wolfinbarger (Ret.), Colorado State Patrol, Director, Intelligence Led Public Safety Solutions, Motorola Solutions and Steve Sebestyen, Community Engagement Product Manager, Motorola Solutions


Personal Safety while Protecting the Courts

August 10 @ 2pm Eastern

One of the major themes of the NSA Court Security Training program is personal safety for those who protect the courts.  As with all law enforcement, the key to personal safety for court security professionals is being situationally aware and mentally and physically prepared to respond at all times.  This program will describe and discuss the best practices for protecting yourself while protecting the courts whatever the challenge or threat may be.

Presenter: Tom Lorito, Chief (ret.), New York State Court Officer.
