The money that you contribute helps this program which works to expand the reach of civilian oversight and promote participation by individuals from a broad spectrum, including students, community members, law enforcement and those interested in starting oversight in their jurisdictions.

Although there are many ways to support this program, the biggest (and most fun) way is by attending our annual scholarship fundraising dinner. This year the NACOLE Scholarship Committee has decided make this a particularly special event and hopes that you will join them for a sunset dinner cruise on the Starlite Sapphire on Monday, October 1st, embarking directly from The Vinoy Yacht Basin. In addition to a three-hour cruise on smooth inland waters, your ticket will include a plated dinner, drink ticket, and music.

    2018 Annual NACOLE Conference

    Sustaining Reform. Advancing Justice.

    Over the last year, we have experienced a difficult political and social climate and increasing division between communities and their police agencies. However, we have also seen a level of commitment to civilian oversight of law enforcement, to implement and sustain reforms, and to advance more just communities.

    Join us September 30th - October 4th in St. Petersburg, Florida as NACOLE and the greater oversight community come together to discuss the continued need to work toward change and the methods by which we can all work to affect real and sustainable reform.  This year's conference will feature four tracks that contain information that touches on all of the Core Competencies for Civilian Oversight Practitioners:

    • Training for Oversight
    • Correctional Oversight
    • Building Public Trust
    • Sustainable Reform Efforts

    Within these four tracks conference attendees will be able to choose from 31 different plenary and concurrent sessions covering topics such as less lethal policies and tactics; sexual harassment; assessing institutional culture; best practices for volunteer review boards; and the anatomy of police-community relations.

    In addition to attending sessions like those noted above, attendees will have the opportunity to network with hundreds of others in the ever-growing community of civilian oversight practitioners, community members, law enforcement officials, journalists, elected officials, students and others working for greater accountability, transparency, and trust. They will be a part of a learning and networking event that will provide inspiration, ideas, and practical knowledge to overcome challenges and continue the work.
