    This event is geared toward a variety of audiences, including but not limited to community members, oversight practitioners, justice system stakeholders, and academics. It will seek to address many issues important to those who support, are interested in, or work in the field of civilian oversight of law enforcement. In particular, this training opportunity will take on topics such as civilian oversight of county jails, California's new transparency laws, and information on the strengths and limitations of the different models of civilian oversight of law enforcement.

    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 Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits, pending approval, for an additional $25 fee.  Please note that no one will be turned away from this event for lack of funds. Registration fees will be waived or a donation accepted for those who find that paying the full registration fee would prohibit their ability to attend and who are not seeking CLE or CPO credits.

    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 from 5:00pm - 10:00 pm at Oakland's Lake Chalet on the waterfront.  The reception will be an opportunity for attendees to further discuss the topics of the day and will feature DJ Davey D (Hard Knock Radio/Co-founder of the Bay Area Hip Hop Coalition) and live music with performances by a number of Bay Area standouts including Troy Lampkins (Bass), Sanford Barnett (Guitar), Alcide Marshall (Drums), Mic Blake (Vocals), Cat Brooks (Spoken Word), and Chris Burger’s Alphabet Soup & Luv Phenomena.

    Should you need to cancel your registration you may do so by April 26, 2019.  Registration fees will be refunded minus a $15 processing fee.  We will not be able to issue refunds under any circumstances after this date.

    Amendment 1, an amendment calling for the creation of a community oversight board to investigate and review allegations of misconduct by the Nashville Metro Police Department was approved by voters on November 6, 2018. Since that date, there has been a tremendous amount of work to nominate and approve the 11-member board and, now, to hire the staff that will carry out the day-to-day the work of the agency.

    This event will provide an opportunity to bring training to a variety of audiences, including but not limited to community members, oversight practitioners, justice system stakeholders, and academics in Nashville and throughout the region. It will seek to address many issues important to those who support, are interested in, or work in the field of civilian oversight of law enforcement. In particular, this training opportunity will take on topics such as the practice of civilian oversight in Tennessee, community outreach, mediation, and investigation techniques.  It will also provide an invaluable opportunity for those in attendance to network and discuss those aspects of civilian oversight they find important.

    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. Please note that no one will be turned away from this event for lack of funds. Registration fees will be waived or a donation accepted for those who find that paying the full registration fee would prohibit their ability to attend and who are not seeking Certified Practitioner of Oversight (CPO) program credits.

    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 from 4:30pm - 7:00 pm.  This will be an opportunity for attendees to further discuss the topics of the day and learn more about the work being done in Nashville, the State of Nashville, and around the country.
