2015 National Forum on Criminal Justice

The 2015 National Forum on Criminal Justice will take place August 2-5 at the Inter-Continental Buckhead in Atlanta, Georgia. Building on last year's momentum, this year's conference will continue to focus on the integration of policy, research, and technology to improve public safety.
