Violence in Our Society has Reached Crisis Proportions

FORT LAUDERDALE-DAVIE, Fla.– January 30, 2014 –

Thanks to a partnership between NSU, BSO and the Sheriff’s Foundation of Broward County, the Violence Knows No Boundaries Conference was established. The conference, now in its third year, was created as a way to raise awareness for warning signs and predictors of emergency situations and provide training and information to first responders and others on the front lines who may deal with violent situations, including those involving children.

The conference will host outstanding speakers, including: Alexis Carpinteri, a 19-year veteran of the Federal Bureau of Investigation who will speak on sex crimes against children; David Shapiro, a professor of psychology in NSU’s Center for Psychological Studies, who will speak on risk assessment; and Joe Matthews, a veteran criminal investigator who has worked on several high-profile cases, who will speak about individual and family victimization.

There will also be a panel discussion at 3:15 p.m. that will include these speakers as well as Rob Cipriano, a licensed psychologist who works with the Miami-Dade Police Department, and Joe Finley,29-year veteran of the FBI. Topics include: sex crimes against children, risk assessment, individual and family victimization, and danger assessment and prevention.
