Event description



  • North Dakota Opioid Crisis - Update
  • Opioid Addiction and Treatment
  • Verbal Judo - De-escalation and Conflict Resolution with Youth
  • Phil Chalmers - Friday Keynote Speaker, National TV Personality, Speaker, Author and Crime Expert on Youth Violence
  • Chalmers will be addressing the causes, warning signs and triggers of teen killers, school shooters, mass murderers and serial killers. In a fast-paced and hard-hitting training style, he will discuss dozens of cases and display hundreds of crime scene photos and videos, teaching attendees not only what makes teen killers, school shooters, mass murderers and serial killers tick, but also how to stop them, by learning the causes, warning signs and triggers of these killers. Unlike most experts, authors and trainers, Chalmers talks directly with the killers themselves, along with getting the first-person crime scene perspective from the investigators who have worked these cases. Topics covered include:
  • Causes, Warnings Signs and Triggers of Teen Killers and School Shooters

  • Dangerous Youth Culture, including cop-killing music, violent video games, and dangerous social media and phone apps.

  • The latest trends in Mass Murder and Serial Murder, including the new Profile

  • Gangs, Cults, and Crime Prevention
