John Schools and Demand Reduction will focus on and explore the evidence base, prevalence and successes of John School programs and other demand reduction techniques being used throughout the nation. In addition to providing a national perspective, the webinar will highlight a successful John School in Waco, Texas. This webinar is the second in a two part series related to human trafficking and law enforcement efforts to reduce victimization. (To view part one please see the Human Trafficking webinar below). The presenters for this webinar include Michael Shively, Ph.D., senior associate, Abt Associates and Investigator Anita Johnson, with the Waco Police Department. Dr. Shively is one of the pioneers in researching John Schools and other demand reduction techniques and has been the lead researcher on a number of National Institute of Justice funded studies. Ms. Johnson runs Texas’s first John School which is considered one of the best national examples of law enforcement being actively involved in the establishment of a John School.
