The Law Enforcement Juvenile Justice Institute is a national gathering for visionary law enforcement executives to dialogue about the future of policing today's youth.

At this inaugural convening, you will examine current policing models and learn about new, trauma - informed models for improving your agencies' responses to youth victimization and violence.  

We accomplish this by establishing a high-level dialogue with you, your colleagues and national law enforcement, adolescent development and juvenile justice experts about tools and best practices for strengthening, sustaining, and expanding law enforcement's relations with today's youth.
