OffenderWatch Symposium New Orleans

New Orleans, November 13-16, 2022

We have another great event lining up for you in New Orleans in 2022. You will hear from nationally recognized experts, share ideas with agencies from around the country, and get hands-on training. You will enjoy networking with new friends as you take in the jazz, food, and traditions of New Orleans.

 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.

Greg Coleman Speaks

 

KEYNOTE

As the first African-American punter in the NFL, former Vikings player Greg Coleman understands the vital role of outside inspiration when the challenges seem insurmountable. He couldn’t have accomplished what he did on the football field or in business without support and guidance from others – coaches, players, family, and more.

Also a former investigator, Greg Coleman has a special passion for law enforcement charged with protecting our cities. He understands that communication is the number one ingredient in building a strong team. Learning how to work effectively as a team is a key component of your agency’s success.

Greg Coleman is a gifted storyteller with a strong message. You will walk away with practical guidance and the motivation you need to keep pressing forward.
