Given the growing interest around the country in civilian oversight that encompasses more than just complaint review and officer discipline, NACOLE knew that additional training and forums were needed. Therefore an academic symposium series was created as a means of gathering academics and practitioners from different fields to discuss developments in police accountability and oversight. This series has proved quite successful and is a reflection of NACOLE’s commitment to the encouragement of evidence-based research about oversight practices.
NACOLE is already planning for the 2017 Academic Symposium that will be held at Arizona State University. Please check back this summer and fall as additional details become available.
