The 13th annual John Jay/Harry Frank Guggenheim Symposium on Crime in America, which opened Thursday with a close look at the nation’s opioid crisis, is accessible via livestream at John Jay College’s YouTube channel.
Featured speakers at the opening panels include Paul Cell, First Vice President of the International Association of Chiefs of Police; Rita Noonan of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; and Joe Rannazzisi, former deputy assistant administrator of the Office of Diversion Control at the Drug Enforcement Administration.
The two-day conference, entitled “Justice in the Heartland,” brings together journalists, criminal justice policymakers, practitioners and academics for discussions on the state of sentencing and corrections reform, the homicide “spike” in several major US cities, and the rise of the underground gun market and other emerging justice issues.
You can find the livestream for each current panel here. If you missed them, you can still watch Thursday’s panels on opiates, sentencing reform, and the discussion on what caused the homicide spike. Friday’s conference will be also be live from approximately 9:00am to 12 noon.
