Law Enforcement Symposium

What is the Law Enforcement Symposium?

 The FBI Norfolk Citizens Academy Alumni Association hosts its Annual Law Enforcement Symposium in April each year. This award-winning program brings together more than 250 command-level professionals from federal, state and local law enforcement agencies across Hampton Roads to learn about and collaborate on law enforcement initiatives that directly impact our communities.

This full day event consists of a continental breakfast, three seminar speakers, a buffet style hot lunch, keynote speaker, plus a panel event.  Sponsors’ tables at the Symposium have information and materials that may be of interest to attendees. The subject matter presentations are carefully considered and based on suggestions from previous attendees. The program will also provide continuing education credits for those attending from the law enforcement community.

The symposium addresses important trends and issues that affect the Law Enforcement community.  Past topics have included:

  • Cyber safety in Hampton Roads
  • Human trafficking crimes and victim recovery in Hampton Roads
  • Opioid addiction and priorities of the Hampton Roads Opioid Task Force
  • Trends and status of gang activities across Hampton Roads cities
  • Recognition and treatment of PTSD
  • A National FBI Case Study

It is our desire to offer an opportunity for Law Enforcement Officers to hear topical subject matter presented by knowledgeable speakers, to build new relationships, strengthen existing relationships, and to work together to have a positive impact on our communities.

Who attends this event?

 The Law Enforcement Symposium is our signature event and is offered to all law enforcement organizations operating in the area of responsibility of the Norfolk Division of the FBI.  These organizations range from local law enforcement, Sheriff’s Offices, military investigative commands, Commonwealth Attorney Offices, DEA, ATF, and other related agencies as well as FBI Norfolk Division staff.
