Regional Training & Networking Events

Over the last 22 years, NACOLE has provided focused training and technical assistance specific to civilian oversight and police accountability.  With an ever-growing demand for information and guidance on oversight,  NACOLE has committed itself to providing more training and networking events throughout the year.  With the tools and knowledge it has gathered, NACOLE works with oversight practitioners and community members to develop and implement distinct and region-specific events.

The regional training and networking events assist NACOLE in its continued effort to develop and deliver training, offer technical support and assistance, and provide an enhanced knowledge-base of emerging and best practices.  Please check the website often to see if there is an event taking place near you.

    Seattle Regional Training

    NACOLE is excited to announce the first event in our 2018 Regional Training Series in Seattle, Washington on June 28, 2018, at the Bertha Knight Landes Room in Seattle’s City Hall.   

    This training event, co-hosted by NACOLE, the King County Office of Law Enforcement Oversight (OLEO), the King County Office of the Ombuds, the ACLU of Washington, the Seattle Office of the Inspector General, the Seattle Office of Police Accountability, the Spokane Office of the Police Ombudsman, Seattle Councilmember Lorena González, and several community organizations, seeks to address many issues important to those interested or working in civilian oversight of law enforcement. In particular, this training will take on the topics of policing in sanctuary cities, inquests, reviewing police use-of-force, and how oversight offices can overcome the challenges of outreach. This training is geared toward a variety of audiences including, but not limited to, community members, oversight practitioners, justice system stakeholders, and academics.

    Lunch will be provided along with a continental breakfast. We also invite all registered attendees to join us for a networking reception that will be held at the end of the day.  This will be an opportunity for attendees to further discuss the topics of the day and learn more about the work being done in King County and around the country.

    Please note that this event is open to all those wishing to attend. The registration fee for this event is $75 and includes training, continental breakfast, and lunch.  We anticipate offering CLE credits, pending approval, for an additional $25 fee.  NACOLE is able to waive the registration fee for those who find it would prohibit their ability to attend and are not seeking CLE credits.
