OJP Unconference on Crime and Victimization

Conference Overview

The Department of Public Safety Office of Justice Programs is pleased to announce the upcoming 33rd Annual “Unconference” on Crime and Victimization.  This multi-disciplinary “unconference” is for victim advocates, law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and other criminal justice professionals; researchers; medical responders; educators; and anyone whose work puts them in contact with victims. Topics will span the wide range of crime victimization and issues related to responding to crime victims in unusual and uncertain times.

Session Information

We’re calling this an “Unconference” because we want you to feel free to choose as many (or as few) sessions as your interest and schedule allow without any pressure to “show up” every day of the six-day training event. You can choose and register for the sessions you wish to attend found in our 2021 Unconference e-Booklet.​ Simply click on the heading of the presentation in the e-Booklet, or​ utilize the registration links above or below.

Our conference will be 100% virtual.  We are committed to providing an inclusive, accessible space for crime victim professionals to share information and encouragement while navigating these changing times.  Sessions are free for everyone to attend.

Attend the OJP Unconference Networking Hour on May 25!
