Tribal Child Protection Symposium and Leadership Forum

| June 6, 2016

The 2016 Tribal Child Protection Symposium and Leadership Forum will be held in Scottsdale, AZ July 18 – 21, 2016.

On July 18th there is a Leadership Forum for tribal leaders and public safety command staff.  This forum will provided direct interaction between policy makers from state, local, federal and tribal agencies to discuss the threats facing children in tribal communities and how we move forward to improve our practices, develop resources and partnerships to protect children.  It is an opportunity to hear from those in the field on the needs and challenges facing tribal communities in their efforts to protect children.

On July 19th, a larger Tribal Child Protection Symposium will open which provides a number of tracks on issues facing tribes and their state, local and federal partners in efforts to protect children and prosecute those who would prey upon them.  The focus of this year’s event is “Technology Facilitated Crimes Against Children in Indian Country”.  With the rise in access to technology we have seen increasing numbers of Native children exposed to harmful material, stalked on line and even lured from their tribal homes for the purposes of victimization and exploitation.  This symposium hopes to address those issues, raise awareness and provide approaches that have been proven to work.

The symposium is free.  There is no cost whatsoever.  Training certificates and hours will be provided for attendees to the Tribal Child Protection Symposium. For more information click HERE.
