With the sudden and unexpected outbreak of the COVID-19 virus affecting life globally, the staff at CALRO are looking at the possibility of suspending the training conference for the safety of all attendees and staff.

We are closely monitoring this rapidly evolving situation and will make a determination on the training conference date sometime around mid-April.  Please check back with us then to see if there are any planned changes.

If we must reschedule and you have already paid, we will be refunding your payment or deferring your payment to the rescheduled date.

Thank you for your patience in this sadly historic time.

ATTENDEE'S FEEDBACK

This was my first time attending the annual CALRO conference, and I found it to be very informative, insightful, and definitely worth my time! The guest speakers and instructors were very experienced, had a lot of expertise in their respective fields, and provided a lot of information to make my job a lot easier when dealing with the differences between labor actions and expressive activity! I would highly recommend anyone interested in enhancing their knowledge, as it relates to labor action and expressive activity, to attend this conference, especially for law enforcement supervisors and management.
