Presenters:

Marvin Krank, Ph.D.
Professor of Psychology, University of British Columbia, Okanagan

Dr. Krank received his Honors BA in Psychology and Mathematics at Indiana University and his Ph.D. in Psychology from McMaster University.  He has taught at Memorial University of Newfoundland, Mount Allison University, and the University of Toronto. He has been an Adjunct Professor at the Claremont Graduate University, Oregon Health Sciences University, and the University of Washington.  Dr. Krank joined the University of British Columbia, Okanagan campus as Dean of Graduate Studies and Professor of Psychology in 2005.

Dr. Krank has an active research program in substance use with an emphasis on adolescents. He has published numerous articles and presents for professional conferences, invited symposia, and community groups. The focus of Dr. Krank’s research is the psychological determinants of drug use and drug effects including seminal work on the drug tolerance, drug withdrawal and cognitive models of substance use trajectories in adolescents.

Dr. Krank is currently pursuing a number of projects examining ways to support healthy thinking and choices to reduce substance abuse in youth.  These projects include assisting in the delivery and evaluation of Preventure, a personality-based intervention, as well as developing the Healthy Automatic, Intentions, and Thoughts (HABIT) program for Grade 6 and 7 students. The goals include reducing the initiation and escalation of substance use in early teens (ages 12 – 16).

Dr. Krank is also working on evaluating an adapted program for university students as a way to reduce the substance abuse including risky opiate use.  These projects target changing risky cognitions that arise from social influences that are associated with increases in substance use.  The approach uses what we know about cognitive processing to modify cognitive biases that lead to higher risk substance use.

Gangs & Guns Training Symposium 2021

Our 2021 event will be a 2-day Training Symposium on Thursday and Friday, February 11th and 12th, 2021

Gangs & Guns is going virtual!  We hope this will be a unique experience for our attendees as they are able to see our excellent presenters without many of you having to fly in and out of the Lower Mainland, BC.

Our plan is to have our presenters here in Vancouver, Canada and present from a studio here.  We hope this compromise will make the event more inviting to you, our online guests, as you will be able to share the excitement between the presenters on subjects we all hold dear.

Of course, if their presence in BC proves to be undoable due to government restrictions on either, or both, sides of the border then individual presentations will be made as an online session.

Our confirmed presenters are:

George Brauchler, District Attorney, 18th Judicial District, Arapahoe,
Douglas, Elbert & Lincoln Counties, Colorado

Presentation on ‘The Anatomy of Mass Homicide Prosecution: The Aurora Theatre Massacre’

Bio:  George H. Brauchler was elected District Attorney in 2012 for the 18th Judicial District (JD), which includes Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert, and Lincoln counties.  Each of Colorado’s 22 judicial districts elects a district attorney who serves as the chief law enforcement officer for that district. The 18th JD is the most populous in Colorado, with a population of more than 1 million people.

George’s experience includes working as a deputy district attorney, Special Assistant U.S. Attorney, military prosecutor, and just prior to his election, the Chief of Military Justice — the chief prosecutor for Fort Carson, the 4th Infantry Division, and the U.S. Division North in Iraq.

George received an Army ROTC Scholarship to pay for college at the University of Colorado-Boulder, where he also earned his Juris Doctorate. He has been mobilized twice since 9/11. In 2015, George transferred from the U.S. Army Reserve to the Colorado Army National Guard, where he serves as a Colonel.

He has served as an adjunct professor at the University of Colorado, University of Denver, and the U.S. Army JAG School, and he has trained state and military prosecutors across the United States and worldwide.

John W. Callery

Bio: Mr. John W. Callery has a total of 35 years of law enforcement experience and began his law enforcement career in 1984 as a Police Officer in the United States Air Force (USAF) for six years. For four of those years, he was detailed to the prestigious USAF Presidential Honor Guard at Bolling AFB, Washington, D.C., serving then-President Ronald Reagan. Mr. Callery continued his law enforcement career as a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agent in 1992, initially assigned to the DEA Los Angeles Field Division (LAFD).  Mr. Callery received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Public Administration from the University of Maryland and a Master’s of Science in Counterterrorism-WMD from the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in 2007. He also holds a Master Certificate in Conflict Management from the University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza School of Business.

While assigned to the LAFD (1992-2000), Mr. Callery was a member of the OPERATION LEYENDA group and worked arduously on bringing to justice the conspirators in the murder of DEA Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena in Mexico. In 1995, Mr. Callery was assigned to the LAFD’s Mobile Enforcement Team (MET), where he conducted numerous deployments to cities suffering from drug-related violence. These deployments were extremely successful, resulting in the arrests of hundreds of drug traffickers and violent criminal offenders.  In 1999, Mr. Callery was chosen for an overseas assignment in Bangkok, Thailand. During his tenure in Bangkok, Mr. Callery controlled high-level heroin investigations with US nexus’ to include the first Judicial Wire Tap investigation in the history of The Kingdom of Thailand.

In 2011, Mr. Callery assumed the position of Country Attaché of DEA’s Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Country Office, where he managed DEA’s efforts to identify and dismantle drug trafficking and money laundering organizations operating in Malaysia and Singapore.  In 2014, Mr. Callery returned to the LAFD as a Group Supervisor, where he led the division’s Clandestine Lab Enforcement Group. There he focused his group’s attention on PCP manufacturing, criminal street gangs and violent drug trafficking.

In August, 2016, Mr. Callery was promoted to Section Chief at DEA/HQS Regional and Local Impact Section (OGR) where he oversaw DEA’s domestic operations and managed DEA’s Domestic Cartel Initiative (DCI), Domestic Priority Targeting Operations, DEA’s assistance to the Violent Reduction Network and Bureau of Indian Country Affairs.  In September 2017, Mr. Callery transferred from DEA/HQS to Honolulu, Hawaii to assume the duties of Assistant Special Agent in Charge (ASAC) of the DEA Honolulu District Office. There he led and managed all DEA operations in the Hawaiian Islands, Guam and Saipan.

As the Special Agent in Charge (SAC) of the San Diego Field Division (SDFD) he is currently leading the men and woman of the SDFD in concentrating on the opioid overdose death investigations, fentanyl-laced drugs, Mexican Cartel operations, US/Mexico interdiction efforts and the enduring scourge of methamphetamine trafficking in the region.

Mr. Callery is a professional public speaker and has conducted hundreds of lectures around the world on a myriad law enforcement and counter-terrorism topics. From 2005-2011 Mr. Callery conducted over 70 DEA International Training seminars on professional law enforcement best practices in over 50 nations around the globe.

Mr. Callery is married, he enjoys golf, snorkeling, tennis and he is an avid sports fan.

Byron Boston

Presentation: “Psychological Impact of Undercover Gang Investigations”

Successful Undercover Gang Investigations rely heavily on law enforcement officers posing as large-scale narcotic traffickers to covertly obtain evidence of criminal activity.  Oftentimes, gang members challenge the officer’s identity, encourage the officer a crime, divulge information of an intended violent crime, or seek an opportunity to assault/and or steal from the officer.  To overcome these challenges, officer’s utilize daring techniques to gain the trust and confidence of the gang members.  These techniques can lead to dangerous psychological implications for the involved officers as they often over identity with the gang members and their families.

This presentation will culminate with a debrief on a two year undercover operation into a violent gang that was responsible for killing a police officer.  The instructor will share his unique experiences and the intense psychological challenges that developed during and after the investigation concluded.

 

 

Staff Sgt. Lindsey Houghton

Bio: A former member of the Vancouver Police Department and the Department’s spokesperson, Staff Sergeant Lindsey Houghton is now an officer with the Organized Crime Agency of BC (OCABC) Advisory NCO working within the provincial integrated gang unit, the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of British Columbia. He oversees the CFSEU-BC’s Community & Public Affairs and Gang Exiting & Intervention teams.

The recipient of several provincial, community and policing awards, Lindsey continues to seek new and innovative ways to create and promote positive gang awareness and prevention strategies. This includes being the creator and architect of the internationally recognized End Gang Life (endganglife.ca) gang prevention, education, and awareness initiative.

Negotiations are continuing and we hope to have the rest of the agenda confirmed within the next few weeks.

Ensuring Safe and Trauma Informed School Communities – Wednesday, October 14, 2020

$199 (USD)

Login opens at 8:00am Pacific Time

Schools and school districts continually seek ways to make every student feel valued, respected, safe, wanted and connected. Trauma-Informed practices function to create compassionate learning communities by understanding trauma and its effects, and working with the school community in responding to challenging behaviour in a way that supports the students, families, and staff alike. Using a Trauma-Informed lens with best practice from the field of Violence Prevention and Intervention Strategies, this training strives to provide a deeper understanding of how to create, measure and evaluate school connectedness.

By guiding and assisting with the positive development of classroom/school climate and culture, we ensure school communities where students feel safe, accepted and respected regardless of their gender, race, culture, religion, or sexual orientation. Many students come to school each day because the school is the only place they feel physically safe, yet are not connected emotionally. This training will explore ways to reach out to these students to help create feelings of being valued, respected, and wanted.

This training also provides an overview of the COVID-19 pandemic and the challenges it has created, including a look at trauma, and its impact on our youth, current social media trends, violent behaviour patterns, all facets of bullying, and successful intervention strategies.

Training includes:

  • The What, Why, and How of Trauma-Informed Practice
  • Understanding Adverse Childhood Experiences and Trauma
  • What is Hate, Racism, Bias and Privilege
  • Best practice in the design of and strengthening School Codes of Conduct
  • Promoting connectedness and understanding the relationship between school culture/climate and school safety through assessment and improvement strategies
  • Understanding the importance of the role of the physical environment in schools
  • Knowledge of the difference between peer conflict, mean behaviour, and bullying behaviour
  • Successful intervention strategies & tools to address the different types of bullying
  • Effects of bullying behaviour on children and youth
  • Managing social media & the evolution of sexting behaviour and sextortion
  • Trauma-Informed practice – what is trauma, and how it impacts youth
  • Understanding what kind of trauma youth may have been exposed to while physical distancing during the pandemic
  • The importance of staying connected with high-risk and vulnerable youth and monitoring changes in behavioural baseline
  • Criteria for program selection & implementation (e.g. social emotional learning)
  • Diversity – design for the difference to address homophobia, racism, and systemic racism
