NAPSA Releases COVID-19 Survey Results
As state and local jurisdictions were dealing with the onset of the pandemic, NAPSA created a survey to learn what responses to COVID-19 were being taken by pretrial service agencies across the United States. We wanted to learn how various agencies had been impacted and understand in greater details how practices may have changed as a result of COVID-19. In sharing this information broadly, we can learn from one another and start a conversation for how we can be better prepared for the future. Understanding how practices have been modified pre-and-post- COVID-19, will help us assess whether the beneficial policies and practices being implemented have potential for expansion and to understand what future reforms are possible.

NAPSA Virtual Conference Registration Now Open Thank you for your patience as we recreated our conference due to COVID-19 pandemic. While not hosting an in-person conference this year was initially a difficult decision, it is the best course of action given concerns about the pandemic and the ability to safely host a large gathering.
NAPSA will host its 2020 virtual conference over several dates in September. This special event will be live-streamed from 1:00p.m. to 5:00p.m. EDT beginning on Tuesday, September 15, continuing on Thursday, September 17 and Tuesday, September 22, and concluding on Thursday, September 24. The conference will offer everything you expect from a NAPSA Conference: excellent keynote speakers, workshops that feature the finest education and training for pretrial practitioners and stakeholders, an exhibit hall and exposition, and networking opportunities for you to meet and learn from others working in the field.
While our conference is being live-streamed, it will also be recorded. So, you don't have to worry about missing an educational opportunity should you have to step away. All registered participants will have access to the recorded version of the conference for a limited time following the conclusion of the conference. For the first time ever, a conference participant will be able to access every plenary session and every workshop on demand.
