The Federal Probation and Pretrial Officers Association and the District of Arizona are proud to announce the 7th National Training Institute to be held August 23-26, 2015, in Scottsdale, Arizona.
This training opportunity will provide state-of-the-art information about topics relevant to the field and create a learning environment among federal probation and pretrial officers from across the country to exchange program ideas.
Workshops will be available on Monday and Tuesday, with a general session on Wednesday, in addition to offering valuable networking opportunities with fellow officers.
The Community Corrections Collaborative Network (CCCN) will be hosting a live national forum discussion with our federal partners and national and local experts, to highlight the unique opportunities and resources that are now available to our criminal justice system. When we look at who is locked up in our prisons and jails or juvenile facilities around the country, the data show that there are hundreds of thousands of individuals who had a drug, mental health or associated treatment need that went unmet.

It seems conceivable, thanks to a surge in interest from elected officials at the state and federal level, as well as an “unlikely” coalition of left- and right-wing groups that announced its formation on Thursday. The Coalition for Public Safety, as the group is called, includes organizations like the Center for American Progress and the American Civil Liberties Union along with Tea Party-aligned FreedomWorks and Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform. It’s backed, in part, by Koch Industries.
All justice-involved individuals who are under community supervision are expected to abide by a set of conditions. Unfortunately, a significant portion will violate one or more of their terms and conditions of supervision at some point, either by committing a new offense or by committing a technical violation–an infraction related to failing to comply with the technical rules set by the releasing authority.
