Safe & Sound Hillsborough is excited to participate in the Promoting Procedural Justice with At-risk and Minority Youth (Disproportionate Minority Contact Training) being held on Wednesday, December 14th, 2016 from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM at the Hillsborough County, Department of Children’s Services, 3191 Clay Mangum Lane, Tampa Florida 33618.
Who should attend? A comprehensive and culturally competent procedural justice curricula and training program for law enforcement built on evidence-based principles will support an enhanced and increased understanding of the issue of disproportionate minority contact (DMC). Furthermore, it supports law enforcement in building strong community relationships, enhancing interactions with youth, and creating effective interventions to divert at-risk and minority youth from the system. Local leaders and community stakeholders are likely to invest in viable and sustainable solutions aimed at reducing the effects of DMC in their community.
