Main Conference

October 25 – 28

Training Today for the Heroes of Tomorrow

This conference plans to be the best professional development opportunity for law and public safety teachers ever offered. LAPSEN has sought a diverse range of presenters to give every participant the opportunity to grow professionally.

We will have over 10 tracks and 50 sessions to watch that are all pre-recorded. Each night we will have choices from the pre-recorded sessions where the presenter will be live for you to ask questions and learn more about the session. If you miss a Q&A Live Session – those are recorded, too! You will have the whole month of November to watch as many times as you like.

We will also have nightly networking events so you can meet new friends and build your network. Monday will be by your favorite superhero. Tuesday we will group you by pathway. Wednesday you’ll meet others who teach in a similar socio/economic school setting. Every night you’ll meet new people who can strengthen you as a teacher! There is a networking event at 5pm EST and another at 6pm Pacific. You can attend both or the one that fits in your schedule!

Take time to visit our Partner and Sponsor Space. They all have something that would benefit your program. There are conference specials and prize giveaways as well.

After the conference you will receive a certificate verifying your hours of participation for certification or contractual obligations of professional development.

Conference Sessions Announced

Marshal Jeff Branyon: Special Forensics Sessions

Session 1 – The Forensics of a Serial Killer Investigation

Session 2 – 349 Bodies

Marshal Jeff Branyon, formerly GBI Special Agent and a teacher at the National Forensics Academy, has investigated some unusual cases over his nearly three decades in law enforcement. In two special forensics sessions – open to any LAPSEN member – Jeff will detail the investigation, teach forensic techniques and tell an amazing story. 

The Forensics of a Serial Killer Investigation – when Gary Hilton kidnapped Meredith Hope Emerson on New Years Day 2008, he would become forever connected to then GBI Agent Jeff Branyon. Jeff’s investigation and thoroughness to detail sealed Hilton’s fate as Jeff used state of the art techniques and old school forensics to process the crime scenes. Assisting with the investigation in Georgia as well as murders in Florida and North Carolina. Jeff will explain the techniques, process and give tips on teaching such techniques. He will also detail how his attention to details in processing and paperwork sealed Hiltons fate as the evidence was ruled solid in three states as well as Hilton’s death penalty trials. 

349 Bodies – In the crazy story of the Tri-State Crematory crime scene, Agent Branyon will tell how he organized processing the crime scene in what ended up as holding 349 bodies. The story involves DNA, Forensic Anthropology and hours of shoveling. The case is fascinating and Jeff will use it to illustrate crime scene processing techniques, ICS and working with multiple agencies in bringing justice to nearly 350 families. 

National Fire Pathway Specialist: Bob DiPietro

Building Our Future: Career and Technical Education for the Fire Service

Bob DiPietro is a longtime advocate for Fire Education in high schools. He will share on current fire program models.

A high school career pathway introduction to the fire service is an example of Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs preparing high school students for careers. The Fire Service program offers students such career-based certifications as Firefighter I and II, Incident Management, CPR, OSHA, Hazardous Materials, and Wildland. This pathway incorporates the academic core curriculum as developed by each state’s CTE Standards for Fire Service students as well as NFPA 1001 Firefighter standards. Students can also earn dual credit through arrangements with their local community college leading them to an Associate’s degree in Fire Science and a Firefighter I and II certification.
