“Protester Violence Prevention”
Presenter :Rick Arrington – Crime Prevention Programs Manager
Department Of Criminal Justice Services
Virginia respects the rights of all citizens to peaceably assemble and to express their views as part of the foundation of democracy. Unfortunately, some abuse this right endangering other citizen’s right to live at peace in their communities. Research has shown that protests nationally are becoming increasingly violent and a change in how they are organized has forced criminal justice agencies to adjust in their planning and response.
This four-hour session will provide a snapshot of how protests and protesters have changed and new methods for preventing and mitigating violence in the planning phase of otherwise peaceful events. This session is NOT a tactical crowd/riot control course.
(14) Hours of DCJS Credits have been approved. (4) Hours Legal and (10) Hours Career Development/Elective

Community Protection Was The Focus of the Virginia State Crime Clinic’s Annual Conference
The Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services teamed with the Virginia State Crime Clinic to co-sponsor the Clinic’s 48th annual training conference, “Partnering to Protect: Law Enforcement and Security Services Protecting our Communities.” The conference ran from September 18—20 at the Sheraton Norfolk Waterside Hotel and featured presentations on violent extremists, threat assessment, the so-called “sovereign citizen” movement and gangs. Other topics covered included domestic violence and human trafficking. The conference drew law enforcement officers and private security professionals from throughout Virginia and was intended to foster collaboration and information exchange between the law enforcement community and private security services. For each, community protection is a top priority and their responsibilities frequently coincide and overlap, so partnership between the two professions can strengthen the effectiveness of each.
