We hope everyone is enjoying the extremely mild winter. As we enter 2024, MACPO Committees are diligently preparing for the upcoming year. A big thank you is well deserved for all those who help make MACPO a leader in the field of Corrections in Minnesota.
We are in the midst of planning for our upcoming virtual Corrections Capital Day on Thursday,
February 29, 2024. Once again, this event is a collaboration with the Minnesota Corrections Association and Minnesota Association of Community Corrections Act Counties. Our members will be meeting, virtually, with numerous legislative representatives to talk about probation initiatives, goals and encourage ongoing collaboration with our probation partners.
Don’t forget about our upcoming training opportunities. On April 18, 2024, we will be working with Minnesota Corrections Association again to host the MCA/MACPO Annual Juvenile Justice Conference in Maplewood, MN. This is always a great event to learn about juvenile justice topics along with networking with other juvenile agents throughout the state.
Additionally, we are extremely excited for our upcoming spring conference in May as we will be returning to Breezy Point Resort. The Training and Education Committee is diligently working to ensure the training will once again be educational and exciting. Don’t miss out on your chance to attend some great training, participate in fun events, and network with other probation agents from around the state. We hope to see you there!
Finally, don’t forget to take some time to nominate those who are deserving of the annual awards offered by MACPO.
