PAST HRWG MEETINGS

2014


Held in the heart of the Lone Star State, the 2014 annual meeting centered around the theme "The Changing Landscape of Homicide," an idea that was woven throughout the meeting. The meeting was held at the Hotel Valencia in Downtown San Antonio, TX from June 4 - 7. The welcoming reception, co-sponsored by Texas State University's School of Criminal Justice, included a keynote address by Michele Gay, co-founder of Safe and Sound - A Sandy Hook Initiative. Michele spoke to the group about the work her organization is doing in the wake of the Sandy Hook shootings to help reduce lethal violence in schools.

In addition to a host of panels featuring research that embodied the year's theme, HRWG members also took a field trip to the training facilities of A.L.E.R.R.T. (Active Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training). A.L.E.R.R.T. has been designated as the FBI's national standard for law enforcement training in active shooter scenarios, and they shared their training and research with the group.
