2024 OffenderWatch Symposium

November 11-13, 2024

New Orleans, LA

We’re pleased to announce that our next OffenderWatch Symposium has been scheduled for November 11-13, 2024, in New Orleans, LA. Our team is already hard at work assembling the best speakers in the field and creating new materials to provide the world-class training, accommodations, and entertainment you’ve come to expect from us, so be sure to check back frequently for important updates. 

“The workshops and presentations were engaging, pertinent and useful for Registry management and Law enforcement.  However, the best part was the refreshing work hard, play hard atmosphere of the event that seemed to keep the attendees engaged during the day and then well entertained after the day’s activities.”
