Policing & People with Disabilities Webinar Series: Community-Based Strategies for Reform

Join NCCJD as we delve further into the topic of policing and people with disabilities, with a focus on community-based solutions. This webinar is the second in our 2017 Policing & People with Disabilities series that educates law enforcement, other criminal justice professionals, people with disabilities, family members, and disability advocates about the various intersections that play into discrimination and violence toward people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) within the criminal justice system and how we can address the issue by examining innovative programs and potential solutions from around the country. Law enforcement personnel will also discuss how they are changing police culture from within to reform policing practices around disability. NCCJD will highlight its innovative Pathways to Justice® program, a community-based solution that aims to increase trust and understanding between the criminal justice and disability communities, as well as build the capacity of criminal justice professionals to respond to gaps in services for people with IDD.
