What: The 2018 CJAB Conference “Collaboration and Innovation: Keystone of Success” will bring together criminal justice, behavioral health, and treatment partners in what promises to be a dynamic and informative two-day event. We have an exciting line-up of national and local experts who will discuss important topics impacting our criminal justice and behavioral health systems. We are excited to feature new plenary speakers, including Dr. James H. Fallon, author of “The Psychopath Inside: A Neuroscientist's Personal Journey into the Dark Side of the Brain”, who will explore the neurological science behind psychopathology. James Dill will present information about how everyday technologies are being used and misused to commit crime and avoid investigations. Tracey D. Syphax, entrepreneur and author of the book, ““From the Block to the Boardroom” will share his personal experience. The conference will feature other plenary speakers, as well as specialized tracks for Law Enforcement, Courts, Reentry, and Behavioral Health through a variety of breakout sessions offered on both days. This event promises to be an excellent training and networking opportunity for our justice and behavioral health partners. 

Who: The conference is open to all CJAB members, criminal justice, and behavioral health practitioners with specific tracks that include topics of interest specifically for Law Enforcement, Courts, Reentry and Behavioral Health, in addition to a plethora of plenary and breakout sessions with universal appeal to all criminal justice and behavioral health professionals.

Cancellation Policy: In the past few years, a high volume of no-shows by people who have registered for the conference, but failed to attend, has resulted in a loss of substantial amount of funds. To ensure that this loss does not occur again, and to keep this conference free for attendees in the future, PCCD has instituted a strict policy requiring notification of cancellation by close of business on March 26, 2018 

Under this new policy, cancellations after March 26, 2018 and/or “no shows” will be charged $68/day for each day that you registered but did not attend. These costs are derived from the per-person day meeting package rate set by the Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center.

There will be no charge for those who notify PCCD of their inability to attend in writing (email) by close of business on March 26, 2018.
