Dr. Rosay presents at 2010 National Institute of Justice conference

Dr. André Rosay, Justice Center Director, and Katherine TePas, Alaska State Troopers Program Coordinator, will make a poster presentation on "Researcher-Practitioner Partnerships to Impact Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Policy" at the 2010 National Institute of Justice (NIJ) conference on June 15 in Washington, D.C.

The poster describes how practitioners from the Alaska Department of Public Safety and researchers from the UAA Justice Center worked together to develop Alaska's new multidisciplinary and multifaceted initiative to combat domestic violence and sex crimes in Alaska.

For more than a decade, NIJ’s annual conference has brought together criminal justice scholars, policymakers, and practitioners at the local, state, and federal levels to share the most recent findings from research and technology.
