The NGCRC reserves the right to refuse service to anyone: Towards this end we must ask that all persons registering for the conference sign and by their signature acknowledge the Official Policy of the NGCRC which is as follows - In order to provide the safest and most educational environment, the National Gang Crime Research Center (NGCRC) works to ensure that all participants at our conference are law-abiding individuals who have gathered to collect and share information about gangs and crime, in order to reduce and possibly eliminate the problems associated with gang activity. Therefore, it is our policy that no individuals or groups will be permitted at our conference who have links to gangs or other aberrant groups and no one will be permitted to provoke or distract our participants from the most meaningful learning environment. The National Gang Crime Research Center (NGCRC) reserves the right to refuse attendance to any person or persons suspected of or actually displaying gang affiliations. Furthermore, we reserve the right to refuse attendance to any individual(s) determined to be disruptive or instigating a negative or inappropriate presence or who is determined to disrupt the sharing of information in the most effective learning environment. I have also read and understand the refund policy published by the NGCRC. I understand that some sessions may be restricted as described in the course listings and that just because I sign up for a certain track does not mean ipso facto I can attend any and all sessions giving credit for that track. If a course says in its description it is restricted in attendance to police then you cannot attend it unless you are police and if you did attend you will not be given credit for a session you were not eligible to attend I attest that I am at least 18 years of age as of this date. I understand this is a professional venue and that it is not an appropriate place to use toxic language that could offend other persons. I understand that no photos or videos can be taken in or around the NGCRC training rooms.
