Why Can’t People Just Change?
West Huddleston, Vice President, SCRAM Systems
We oftentimes think that people in our care or under supervision can change. It’s easy to lose sight of just how difcult change is, especially in the face of serious consequences. Explore the constellation of factors that can get in the way of change and gain insight into the complexity of learning and unlearning behavior.
High Intensity Drug Trafcking Area (HIDTA)
Craig Summers, Executive Director; Ranaldo Ollie, Deputy Director, Michigan HITDA
The presentation will provide an overview of the HIDTA program and its relationship to federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies in combating, disrupting, and dismantling major drug trafcking organizations.
