Thank you to everyone who was able to attend the Minnesota Department of Public Safety Office of Justice Programs 35th Annual Conference on Crime and Victimization!

Thank you to everyone who submitted a nomination this year for someone to be recognized either for their sustained service to crime victims over the course of their career, or to someone who has advanced the rights of crime victim survivors.  

Exhibitor/Resource Fair: Our conference was made richer because of our wonderful exhibitors!  Thank you for attending and offering information and resources to our conference attendees.   We're fortunate to have so many organizations from across the state available to share what they do, who they serve and answer your questions. And we loved the trivia game!   

The Office of Justice Programs supports Continuing Education.  Because there are so many strict and unique requirements between the vast number of disciplines we work with, we have found the most flexible option is to allow the individual to apply with their respective board/agency and we can validate if needed/necessary.
