DALLAS — The U.S. Department of Justice will hold the National Summit on Crime Reduction and Public Safety on June 20-21, 2017 in Bethesda, Maryland. The Summit will gather representatives from federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement, victim and community advocacy groups, and academia to discuss how to best support and replicate successful local violent crime reduction efforts. Speakers will include Vice President of the United States Michael Pence, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

U.S. Attorney John Parker, Grand Prairie Police Chief Steve Dye, and Dallas Police Assistant Chief Paul Stokes will participate in discussions on a variety of topics related to violent crime reduction efforts.

“I’m very excited about this opportunity to listen to our local law enforcement partners and explore how we in the federal sector can further enhance our existing collaboration to reduce crime,” said U.S. Attorney Parker.

In February, the Attorney General established the Department’s Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety. This internal working group is identifying ways that the federal government can best support crime reduction work across the country.
