OJP Conference on Crime and Victimization

Thank you to everyone who made the 33rd Annual "Unconference" on Crime and Victimization a success!  All of the attendees -  from victim advocates, law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and other criminal justice professionals - and anyone whose work puts them in contact with victims benefitted from learning on topics of crime victimization and issues related to responding to crime victims in unusual and uncertain times.  Dates have not been set yet for our 2022 event.  ​

You can review any of the prior sessions in our 2021 Unconference e-Booklet.​ Bios of the presenters can be found in the e-Booklet​, as well as CEU information.  

Once again, we are so grateful for our presenters, and everyone who made our Unconference virtual event a reality!  Our goal of providing an inclusive, accessible space for crime victim professionals to share information and encouragement while navigating these changing times was met and shared by many who learned valuable capacity building skills. Please reach out to conference director Joann Jones with any questions​ on materials or prior sessions.  

The Office of Justice Programs supports Continuing Education.  An attendance certificate can be requested and provided  (upon confirmation of attendance) from a conference session.  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.
