We recently learned that our members and business partners may have received an email notifying them that the hotel block for our Annual Conference & Exhibit is open. This is NOT the League’s hotel room block. The League’s Annual Conference & Exhibit room block information will be sent AFTER you register for the conference and the link will be sent from League staff.

Law enforcement faces multiple challenges when it comes to dealing with individuals who are in crisis or suffering from mental illness. The evolution is underway to provide training that includes de-escalation techniques and use of force options. We must also look to community mental health providers for partnerships in order to provide the proper care for individuals. Special units have been developed within police departments to help keep people safe and make our communities better places to live for all.
