The 2015 Office of Classification and Transportation Services (OCATS) Professional Development Conference took place on May 6th through 8th at the Amicalola Falls Lodge in the North Georgia mountains. For the first time, all OCATS staff members from across the state joined together to hear from subject matter leaders in their field while learning more about themselves and their agency. Led by Deputy Commissioner Miguel Fernandez and OCATS Director Lisa Casey Bryson, the 2015 OCATS Professional Development Conference helped to strengthen the existing bonds of camaraderie and teamwork that characterize the Classification and Transportation staff. Sessions with speakers such as DJJ Commissioner Avery D. Niles, Department of Corrections Commissioner Homer Bryson, and DJJ Assistant Commissioner Mark Sexton stressed the importance of proactive, positive action in order to help and serve the youth of Georgia. Discussions about innovations in the field of Juvenile Justice and how Georgia's newest Juvenile Justice Reform gave the attendees the "big picture" overview of how the OCATS Team continues to move forward with a vision others across the country are emulating. Whether it be learning about the newest threats posed by gangs, visual tips on improving youth mental health, or even how improved dietary awareness can help reduce stress and illness in juvenile facilities, the knowledge gained through this conference will be used to improve lives on a daily basis.
