National Association for Civilian Oversight of Law Enforcement 2022 Conference and training opportunities

National Association for Civilian Oversight of Law Enforcement (NACOLE)

The 28th Annual Conference “Co-creating Public Safety through Civilian Oversight, Law Enforcement, and Community Partnerships”

September 11-15, 2022 in Fort Worth, TX

Three one-day virtual events will be taking place on October 26th, November 2nd, and November 9th.

For the past 28 years, NACOLE has held an annual conference that brings together the ever-growing community of civilian oversight practitioners, community members, law enforcement officials, academics, journalists, elected officials, students, and others to meet and exchange information and ideas about issues facing civilian oversight and law enforcement.

Since the murder of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, calls for law enforcement reform and the implementation of enhanced civilian oversight mechanisms have continued in ways that we have not seen since the beginning of our organization in 1995.  This year’s annual conference will bring together experts from the United States and around the world to discuss ways in which we can create intentional relationships and work with others to build better oversight and, as a result, better public safety systems. Our sessions will focus on the momentum of the last two years, ensuring that the work for meaningful and sustainable change continues. Speakers will share information on strengthening the work of police, jail, and prison oversight as well as innovations that will push civilian oversight forward in this continued era of reform.

NACOLE also provides webinars and regional training opportunities throughout the year. 

NACOLE is a non-profit organization that works to enhance accountability and transparency in policing and build community trust through civilian oversight.
