Police Oversight Conference – Welcome to the City of Fort Worth


Next date: Sunday, September 11, 2022 | 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m

This year’s conference will bring together experts from across the United States and around the world to discuss how attendees can purposefully build relationships and collaborate with others to build better oversight and, in turn, better public safety systems.

Twenty-eight sessions will share information on strengthening the work of the police, prison and prison inspectorate, as well as innovations that will propel civilian oversight in this ongoing era of reform. Session tracks include: Reform and Innovation, Jail and Prison Oversight, Addressing Today’s Challenges, and Practice of Effective Oversight.

Monday, September 12 is the first full day of sessions and will feature a Texas theme, including welcome addresses from Fort Worth Mayor Pro Tem Gyna Bivens, Fort Worth City Manager David Cooke and Fort Worth Police Oversight Monitor Kim Neal, followed by Keynote Speaker US Rep. Marc Veasey, D-Texas. Oversight agencies from Fort Worth, Houston, Dallas and Austin will then present the day’s first session, entitled “The Changing Landscape of Civilian Oversight in Texas.”

The conference provides a forum where the growing community of civil oversight practitioners, law enforcement officials, journalists, elected officials, students, community members and others can meet to exchange information and ideas on issues facing civil oversight and law enforcement are.

Registration ranges from $375 for students to $750 for non-members. Find out more and register online.
