Room: Atlantic Ballroom
Time:   Day 1 from 8:00 am to 10:00 am


Mastering the NJSACOP Manual

Description: While most accreditation managers focus on learning the accreditation standards manual, they often forget about the importance of doing the dame with the accreditation program manual itself.  This is a critical error on their part.  The program manual is the guidebook on what, when, and how accreditation managers have to perform.  It includes the terminology/definitions appendix that is essential to actually interpreting some of the standards.  This class will take students through the salient points of the manual and will show them precisely what they need to know and how to use the manual as a reference tool in their everyday accreditation responsibilities.

Room: Atlantic Ballroom
Time:   Day 1 from 10:00 am to 11:00 am


Cybersecurity for Law Enforcement Agencies

Description: Cybersecurity, known officially as Information Assurance, is a weakness of many law enforcement agencies.  As a technological expertise increases, more and more agencies are relying on vendors and consultants to manage their Information Technology function.  This provides for some unique challenges.  All law enforcement agencies are bound by law to comply with the FBI CJIS Security Policy requiring them to have specific policies, training, and technology in place to safeguard Criminal Justice Information (CJI).  This class will provide students with an overview of the current threat picture, requirements set forth in the FBI CJIS Security Policy, and steps that should be taken to safeguard computer systems/networks proactively.

Room: Atlantic Ballroom
Time:   Day 1 from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm


Getting Back to NJSACOP Accreditation Basics

Description: Accreditation basics is one of the most sought-after and largely attended classes.  During this class, we bring NJSACOP accreditation managers back to the basic.  We review the essential elements of a standard and then break some of the more troublesome ones down and analyze their parts.  We show through examples how organizations can comply with standards through the use of agency developed policy, laws, regulations, and other legally binding documents.  We then analyze compliance policy to demonstrate where proof would/could come from and what types of proof can be used to prove compliance.  Lastly, we discuss the requirements of regular accreditation maintenance/management leading up to compliance reviews and ultimately the official CALEA assessment.

Room: Atlantic Ballroom
Time:   Day 1 from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm


Fentanyl Based Evidence Collection and Testing

Description: The rise of fentanyl-laced narcotics and the use of fentanyl in purposeful attacks against law enforcement is now a common occurrence in policing operations across the country.  Officers and other types of first responders are in a unique position to succumb to accidental exposure.  Law enforcement agencies need to have specific procedures in place to properly collect, store, and field test suspected or known fentanyl-based substances.  Additionally, agencies need to properly train and equip their personnel to perform their duties in this area in accordance with state (PEOSH) and federal (OSHA) administrative law.  This class will provide students with the knowledge they need to put these systems in place for their organizations and will additionally provide students with a sample policy.

Room: Atlantic Ballroom
Time:   Day 1 from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm


Effective Police Response to Traumatized Children Exposed to Domestic Violence

Description: Children are often the forgotten victims of domestic violence.  Silently, in the background, they are often witnesses to long duration harassment, abuse, and violence.  Psychologically, this takes a dramatic toll on them and their ability to communicate, learn, and interact with others.  Police officers need to recognize this and take specific actions to help children in a domestic violence environment to literally help save their lives.  This class will open a dialogue with students regarding how they can have their organization become more responsive and proactive in this area. A highlight of the class is a child survivor’s perspective about how the exposure to domestic violence impacted her personal life and as a police commander.

Room: Atlantic Ballroom
Time:   Day 1 from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm


The Law Behind New Jersey School Security Policies

Description: The Stoneman Douglas High School mass shooting incident appears to be a watershed moment for New Jersey law enforcement agencies becoming more involved with security planning with local school districts.  This involvement has progressed to include the request for assistance of the law enforcement community, by school officials, in the development of specific school security policies, both passive and dynamic (response based).  This presents a challenge for many agencies for they don’t have anyone trained in school security, development of school security policies, or knowledgeable in the applicable New Jersey law that guides school security policy and drills (N.J.A.C. 6A:16-5.1 and N.J.S. 18A:41.1, respectively).  This class will provide students with an overview of source regulations and how they can partner with their school district to help promote a safe school environment through planning and policy.

Room: Atlantic Ballroom
Time:   Day 2 from 9:00 am to 10:00 am


Communicating During an Evolving Crisis

Description: As we witnessed during the unfolding events in the aftermath of the mass shooting at the Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida in February, effectively communicating as an organization during an evolving crisis is becoming a more complex critical task for first responders.  Unified command style press conferences present unique challenges for leaders who must face the mass media with timely and accurate information.  Organizations have many means at their disposal to get their message out.  All of them must be used in a coordinated effort to assure a unified message.  Battalion Chief Michael Fronimos, a two-time President of the National Information Officers Association, will walk students through the process of effectively communicating during an evolving crisis.

Room: Atlantic Ballroom
Time:   Day 2 from 10:00 am to 11:00 am


Creating an Pedestrian Safety Program

Description: With the rise of pedestrian-involved collisions and as the sole organization charged with the responsibility for reducing them and enforcing traffic law police departments are required to take a proactive stance.  However, many agencies find this type of enforcement and public education as a challenge for multiple reasons.  Often policy is also weak in this vital area.  This class will educate the student on how they can help their agency become a proactive stakeholder in pedestrian safety within their community.  There are many different tools and programs in existence that can be tapped into to perform this critical function.  This class will introduce students to these in a collaborate manner.

Room: Atlantic Ballroom
Time:   Day 2 from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm


Using the Internet to Research Policy

Description: Policy writing research in the digital information age has made the task much more manageable for accreditation managers and policy writers.  Many accredited police departments are placing their policies and other documents online to promote transparency.  This has created a literal treasure trove of information.  This class will show students how to use the Internet, web browsers, and other tools to tap into this policy information pool to help them create better more robust and legally sound policies for their agency.

Room: Atlantic Ballroom
Time:   Day 2 from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm


Nailing the NJSACOP Time Sensitive Standards

Description: Accreditation agencies experience the most issues during an official NJSACOP assessment with time-sensitive standards.  Time-sensitive standards require the organization, their personnel, to perform specific functions or tasks on a tight schedule.  If missed, an organization cannot go back in time and fix the issue.  All they can do it identify it and fix it while making the accrediting body aware of the failure.  This class reviews all the NJSACOP time-sensitive standards with students and provides them with a list of when they are required to be performed.  Accreditation managers who attend the class can elect to be enrolled in an email distribution, managed by the NJPSAC, that will alert them ahead of time when these time-sensitive accreditation products are required to be generated so he/she can act in advance to assure they are completed as required.

Room: Atlantic Ballroom
Time:   Day 2 from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm


Creative Proof Techniques: The Proof Matrix

Description: The one thing all accreditation managers struggle with is how to accurately and adequately prove a standard through what is known as proofs of compliance.  The more experience an accreditation manager obtains, the easier this process becomes, but it still serves as a challenge.  This class takes the guesswork out of the process.  Our team of accreditation experts has devised a comprehensive list of what proofs are traditionally used to prove a standard, right down to the bullet level in the NJSACOP accreditation program.  This class includes even lesser known and unique ways proof can be shown.  As the old adage says, work smarter, not harder.  Let our proof suggestion list help guide your way to accreditation success.

Room: Atlantic Ballroom
Time:   Day 2 from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm
