  • NCCPS Verbal De-Escalation Education Program is LIVE: We are happy to announce that our second Virtual Professional Development (VPD) offering, the Verbal De-Escalation Education Program, is now live and registration is open. As with our Physical Security Education Program, participants will receive a certificate of completion following a successful post-test at the end of the course.
  • Emerging Issues in Law Enforcement and Strategies to Address Them: In August 2017, 40 rank and file officers, deputies, and troopers, nominated by the heads of their departments as some of our nation's front-line leaders, participated in a roundtable discussion to consider their roles in implementing their departments' community policing policies and operations. The resulting report, Rank and File: Reflections on Emerging Issues in Law Enforcement, captures the experiences, opinions, and ideas of the participating officers and offers a glimpse into the daily activities of a unique and demanding profession.

  • Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month: February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, a national effort to raise awareness about and prevent abuse in teen and 20-something relationships. Teen dating violence is defined as physical, sexual, psychological, or emotional violence within a dating relationship, including stalking. It can occur in person or electronically and happens on college and university campuses.
  • Violence Prevention in Practice: In the fall of 2018, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) added a new web-based resource, Violence Prevention in Practice, to help guide state and local health agencies and other key stakeholders in planning, implementing, and evaluating violence prevention efforts. The website is a welcome addition to the important and effective technical packages released by the CDC that have helped broaden the conversation and advance sexual and intimate partner violence prevention.

  • Med Tac Training Program: Medical emergencies happen regularly and people of all ages can encounter them on campuses or in their daily, private lives. On average, it takes 10 minutes for a trained first responder to arrive at the scene of a medical emergency and those intervening minutes are critical.
  • National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week®: Young adults can receive misinformation about drug and alcohol use through popular culture, the Internet, TV, movies, music, and social media. National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week® is January 22-27, 2019 and campus prevention practitioners can use this opportunity to educate students about drugs and alcohol using science-based information.

  • Supporting Student Veterans on Campus: The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs estimates more than one million people accessed their education program benefits in 2016. With nearly 17 million students in undergraduate programs that same year, a significant population of veterans or veterans' families are attending college or taking advantage of other educational opportunities. Many institutions of higher education are providing support and specific programming to benefit this population.
  • Human Trafficking Awareness and Prevention: January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, and January 11 is "Wear Blue Day" - a day devoted to spreading awareness about and stopping the hidden crime of modern slavery, which traps millions of men, women, and children in the United States and around the world. People in college and university campus communities can play a key role in thwarting this crime.

In this issue:

  • National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day: First observed in 2015, National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day takes place on January 9th each year to recognize the great service of law enforcement, including campus police. We extend our heartfelt appreciation to all law enforcement professionals for their dedication and service.
  • January is National Stalking Awareness Month: January 2019 marks the 15th annual National Stalking Awareness Month, an annual call to action to recognize and respond to the serious crime of stalking. Stalking is prevalent, dangerous, and a crime in all 50 states, the U.S. Territories, and the District of Columbia. It can be difficult to investigate, charge, and prosecute in a system designed to respond to singular incidents rather than the series of acts that constitutes stalking.
