Amendment 1, an amendment calling for the creation of a community oversight board to investigate and review allegations of misconduct by the Nashville Metro Police Department was approved by voters on November 6, 2018. Since that date, there has been a tremendous amount of work to nominate and approve the 11-member board and, now, to hire the staff that will carry out the day-to-day the work of the agency.
This event will provide an opportunity to bring training to a variety of audiences, including but not limited to community members, oversight practitioners, justice system stakeholders, and academics in Nashville and throughout the region. It will seek to address many issues important to those who support, are interested in, or work in the field of civilian oversight of law enforcement. In particular, this training opportunity will take on topics such as the practice of civilian oversight in Tennessee, community outreach, mediation, and investigation techniques. It will also provide an invaluable opportunity for those in attendance to network and discuss those aspects of civilian oversight they find important.
Please note that this event is open to all those wishing to attend. The registration fee for this event is $75 and includes training, continental breakfast, and lunch. Please note that no one will be turned away from this event for lack of funds. Registration fees will be waived or a donation accepted for those who find that paying the full registration fee would prohibit their ability to attend and who are not seeking Certified Practitioner of Oversight (CPO) program credits.
