Symposium 24 Riverboat

Save the date!  November 10 – 13th, 2024 at the Westin New Orleans!

Video recap of the OffenderWatch Symposium 2022 in New Orleans.

“The workshops and presentations were engaging, pertinent and useful for Registry management and Law enforcement.  However, the best part was the refreshing work hard, play hard atmosphere of the event that seemed to keep the attendees engaged during the day and then well entertained after the day’s activities.”

 Working Smarter, Together

Law enforcement agencies are often struggling to maintain staffing while meeting their statutory obligations to manage the registry, notify the public, and perform investigations.  Our workshops this year are all focused on efficiency.  How can we save officer time while improving the service of the registry?  We will review best practices and share your ideas for doing it one better.

Why are we skipping 2023? 

We want more time to assemble the best speakers, create new materials, and provide the world-class hotel and entertainment you expect from us. We will keep you up to date via email and you can check back here for updates. This also gives agencies more time to put the OffenderWatch Symposium in the grant requests, continuing education plans, and travel budgets.
