Other officials from Massachusetts attending the conference include Tom Turco, the Massachusetts Department of Correction Commissioner, Chairman of the Massachusetts Parole Board Paul Tressler, and recently appointed Cannabis Control Commissioner and former State Senator Jennifer Flanagan.

The Public Safety Summit will be hosted by the Council of State Governments, Justice Center.
