Episode Description

Ever wonder what happens behind the scenes at a law enforcement conference? The International Society of Crime Prevention Practitioners (ISCPP) is a highly-respected organization whose mission is to improve law enforcement initiatives through education, training and shared resources. Its members include Crime Prevention and Community Liaison Officers, Loss Prevention and Security Specialists and concerned individuals from the private sector. ISCPP’s 2008 Crime Prevention Symposium was held October 20-25, 2008 in Denver, CO; and host Susan Bartelstone, who is certified by ISCPP, interviewed seven of the outstanding experts presenting workshops at the conference. With too much good stuff for just one program, this week's show features neighborhood watch programs, the enforcement of underage drinking laws and the Reality Tour Drug Prevention Program. Tune in next week for part 2, highlighting three innovative child safety programs and tourism-oriented policing.
