This notebook contains materials for the 24 workshops of the 2000 Annual National Training Conference held in Green Bay, Wisconsin, on October 25-27, 2000, which focused on the expansion of jurisdictional partnerships among criminal justice and community agencies and leaders.
One workshop focused on the Green Bay Police Department's (Wisconsin) transformation of a downtown street into a booming business district through a multi-phased, 3-year process, which helped to restore order and financial viability to a neglected inner-city business district. A workshop on media relations acquainted participants with new methods for dealing with the news media while conducting investigations of high profile incidents; and a workshop on youth as resources in Indian Country emphasized how youth and adults have worked in partnership to design and implement community service projects and form local governing boards. A workshop on correctional adult gangs discussed gang identification and gang management in the jail setting; and another workshop addressed the building of comprehensive, collaborative, and proactive strategies to reduce crime in communities. Other workshops addressed violence against women, community-based alternative sanctions programs, fraud and gaming, drug enforcement administration, sovereignty, drug demand-reduction programs, school violence, wired government, the Police Youth Cadet Program, police recruitment and retention, the Indian Child Welfare Act, tribal drug courts, the "Medicine Wheel," jurisdictional issues for tribal courts, community involvement in Boys and Girls clubs, making change at the community level, and the changing face of America.
