Notes from Episode 65
We were invited to the third annual Smart on Crime Innovations Conference 2019. The conference was held in New York City on September 24th and 25th. Any sound from the conference was courtesy of the Center for American Progress, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and the Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation.
The third voice you hear in the interviews is our web guru Robert Alvarez who was able to join me at the conference.
