Mark your calendars for the “Virginia Campus Safety and Violence Prevention Forum,” March 6-9, 2017 at the Renaissance Hotel in Portsmouth, Virginia hosted by the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) in partnership with the Virginia Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (VACLEA). The forum will bring together experts in the field of violence prevention, campus sexual assault, the Clery Act, Title IX, domestic extremism, threat assessment, and mental health to discuss the latest research, policies, legal challenges, interdisciplinary cooperation, and reporting issues.
