Urgent Priorities to Further Our Reform Efforts

The field of oversight of law enforcement has grown significantly in the last few years. With it, the needs of practitioners and communities looking to establish civilian oversight have also grown; the current national outcry for police reform has accelerated that growth rapidly. NACOLE is working hard to meet the demand but money is often a limiting factor. With your help, we could increase our capacity for outreach, advocacy, and education. We want to strengthen and expand oversight throughout the country, and give those tasked with doing this challenging and essential work the support and professional development they need to be strong, effective community-change agents. Your donation will directly support NACOLE’s top 3 priorities:

1. Advocacy for civilian oversight

2. Training of oversight professionals

3. Defining and defending oversight with state-of-the-field research and data

    Jail & Prison Oversight Quarterly Forum (June 2024)

    NACOLE invites you to our next quarterly online forum for jail and prison oversight (JPO) practitioners and researchers. This opportunity to meet and network with individuals involved with JPO will take place on Thursday, June 27, 2:00 - 3:00 pm ET.

    NACOLE members and employees of agencies holding organizational memberships are invited to participate. 

    The quarterly forum will be facilitated by NACOLE Board member, Nasha Rivas Salas, and members of NACOLE’s JPO Committee. It is an opportunity for those involved with JPO to meet and network, and to discuss common issues and share information about training, technology, tools, and relevant resources. Forum attendees are encouraged to bring specific questions related to JPO to the forum, as it is an opportunity to receive insight and suggestions from the collective community.

    Registration is not required; however, please note that the capacity for the forum is 100 participants.
