Annual Conference

Since NACOLE's first event in 1995, the organization has worked to put together a comprehensive, informative, and inclusive Annual Conference program that addresses both skills training and current and emerging topics. Stretching over five days, the conference provides a forum where the growing community of civilian oversight practitioners, law enforcement officials, journalists, elected officials, students, community members, and others can meet to exchange information and ideas about issues facing civilian oversight of law enforcement, jails, and prisons.
